Man, we got some great responses to the MINGUS post, not sure whether it was because of its relation to CUMBIA but I think it was the first time we have ever included Jazz on this blog!
So, I thought, why not give you a little bit more….Jazz, that is
“TRUEFORCE”……This is one of my first ever mixtapes!!!!!
I did this back in 2002, before I had ever done a live DJ gig (my DJ debut being in Nov 2003). It is called “TRUEFORCE”…it is jazzy, dark, grimy, strange, weird and downright dirty but also romantic…..
It’s inspired by a host of movies but underpinned by a jazz musical score…
It has a cast of the following:
Robert De Niro
