Various Artists WickedJazzSounds

With this 14-track compilation, Amsterdam‘s WickedJazzSounds collective lays out its saucy, funk-fueled mission statement. DJ Phil Horneman displays typical Dutch opportunism in his selections, skimming only the thickest, freshest stuff off the top of a worldwide bowl of slick, floor-greasing grooves. The jazz in the title relates more to organic, free-swinging arrangements than a particular era or style of music; recent classics like The Herbaliser‘s "Something Wicked This Way Comes" and Mark de Clive-Lowe‘s "State of the Mental" strut alongside this-minute jazz/funk bangers by Quantic and Platinum Pied Pipers, and even a sunny throwback by the Godfather himself. WickedJazzSounds = Ubiquity van Nederland?
