  1. I have just found this blog - It's great!!I love your tunes! I was about 16 when the rare groove scene in the late 80s came about. I loved the mixtures of musical styles. I used to buy Urban Polydor 12"'s of the Jackson Sisters, Bobby Byrd etc as well as Charly 'Rare Groove' comps. I listened to a pirate DJ called DJ 'Barnsley' (I think that was his name??). He got me into other labels like Prestige, MPS and sound library. I then listened to great Latin grooves also. I have not looked back since!! The 'Ballroom' you refer to isn't the 'Electric Ballroom' in Camden is it? I used to go to a night there where Coldcut would play an eclectic mix of hip hop and 'pop' house stuff in the main area and upstairs (in a small room) groovers would listen to Acid Jazz grooves - Brilliant!!

THE MELBOURNE PODCAST

MELBOURNE: From Jazz Funk & Fusion to Acid Jazz... an hour long feature on 'From Jazz Funk & Fusion...' built around interviews with Snowboy and Gilles Peterson was broadcast last Thursday (10 September) .


CHECK THE PODCAST:
http://modalbailey.podOmatic.com

This is what John Bailey said:

"The show was a hit fellas.

We got enough text and emails during the broadcast - it was very humbling to be honest

As I was packing up the station manager came in and said phone call line 1.

Some lady was picking her son up from taekwondo and she said she couldn't leave the car to get him because she was engrossed with the show!

I was so chuffed - she said she was going to author house to get a copy - I'm sending her the show on cd.

It was such a buzz."

Watch out for news on a Melbourne launch!.

We are looking for a distibutor for the book in Oz... any ideas please mail us on chaserimprint@gmail.com

SNOWBOY ROADBLOCK @ THE BOATYARD...

SNOWBOY  ROADBLOCK @ THE BOATYARD...
LAST WEEKEND the whole of Essex woke to Snowboy chatting about his book 'From Jazz Funk & Fusion to Acid Jazz' and his Leigh On Sea session with the Latin Section on the breakfast show BBC Essex. As predicted the Boatyard was rammed to then rafters... they could have sold the gig twice over... and a slamming performance was the order of the day. Sadly the corrected version of the book was not ready on time and it left a number of very disappointed punters. Interest in the book in the Essex area is LARGE due to a marvelous double page feature in the Echo... next stop Leeds.

URGENT FAULT ALERT: : IMAGES MISSING FROM SNOWBOY'S BOOK

classic dance jazz mix by colin curtis

This mix was put together for 2 reasons, to celebrate the launch of Mark Cotgrove’s (Snowboy to you and me) new book on the uk underground jazz dance scene between the 70’s and early 90’s’ - ‘From Jazz Funk & Fusion to Acid Jazz’ in the book he pays tribute to artists, dj’s and dancers. heavily featured is the influential dj, Colin Curtis. since he started dj’n in the 60’s Colin has stepped easily between northern soul, modern soul, jazz, jazz funk and soulful house. his knowledge on music is awesome to say the least. i have the pleasure to call him my friend. the second reason therefore is to provide a sample of the jazz he was playing at the time and you may then understand what a great time we had attending venues such as Blackpool mecca, the Ritz all dayers (Manchester), Rafters (Manchester), and the Berlin (Manchester), plus others. he still djs up and down the country at soul venues and including with us at any fro-disia session. we hope you enjoy it. all comments will be passed on to Colin – teecee

DICK JEWELL'S 'THE JAZZ ROOM'... London Premier at BEYOND THE BALLROOM this Sunday!!

The Jazz Room traces the development of jazz dance at The Electric Ballroom in Camden Town. Shot on Super 8 it was finally completed in 1987. Film maker Dick Jewell regularly attended the Jazz Room over a three year period. The camera was placed in front of Paul Murphy's Dj booth and left to run. At the start of each night 'the film so far’ was projected above the dance floor, before continuing to shoot more material to incorporate into the film. This created an interaction between the dancers and the film itself which is a unique document of an era. It captures the dance styles along with the humour and intensity of that now legendary room. Last year Dick finally showed his edit of the footage at The Tate in Liverpool and Beyond The Ballroom is our chance to get a taste of that legendary session!

THE JAZZ ROOM will be shown at 4.30pm following a short selection of Ballroom classics by Snowboy.

Beyond The Ballroom... Cargo, Rivington St. Shoreditch... 3pm onwards ... Sunday 19th July

Jazz dance + Snowboy: Live fom the British Council Tokyo....The legendary British Latin jazz percussionist and DJ Snowboy will be touring Japan in June as part of the promotion for the Japanese edition of his book From Jazz Funk & Fusion To Acid Jazz. He will be making a number of different appearances, some as DJ and some together with his band The Latin Section, but before that he will be appearing at a UK Jazz Dance event at the British Council in Tokyo. The event is a chance to see Snowboy give a talk about his book together with some video clips and photos. In addition to the talk, Lincoln (BeBop Square) will be DJing and there will be a dance performance from Stax Groove. The event is FREE, and tickets are strictly limited to two per person, so it's better to book sooner rather than later. Visit the British Council website and click on 'Event Information' to book your place. Thanks to http://tokyojazznotes.blogspot.com/ for the write up... Check the blog for all the Toky jazz action.
