If you recall or indeed own the Walk On The Wild Side – The Jazz Side Of Mod collection, then you might be interested in The Jazz In You – Mod From The Jazz Side.

It’s another compilation from the same label (Not Now Music) and follows a vaguely similar path. That’s two discs of tunes for under a fiver.

As we said last time, that probably means you don’t get the insight and expertise of someone like Ace Records for the sleeve notes, but it does mean plenty of tunes for your money.

In this case it looks like a selection of jazz tracks that pre-date mod’s ‘overground’ years of the early to mid-1960s, with this collection pulling together tunes from 1954 and 1962 and featuring the likes of Nancy Wilson, MJQ, Mose Allison, Hank Levine, Booker T, Ramsey Lewis and more.

You can see all 40 tunes included below and if you fancy it, the album is out next week, but available to pre-order now. The price is £4.95.
