The original Jazz DJ plays a heady mixture of Jazz, Latin and Groovy sounds. DJ Paul Murphy was an influential figure and a pioneer in the 80s jazz scene, not least at Soho’s Wag Club and Fitzrovia’s Sol Y Sombra.
As Paul says: ‘I always seemed to be playing in dive bars below seedy hotels, old Victorian pubs still full of Withnail and I types, South American restaurants full of extras from Scarface and ex-strip bars. All very downbeat and sordid. But fabulous at the same time. Amazingly, people used to come down to these places and dance their asses off. Heady times and great tunes.’
