Ace Records has another potential winner coming up with the release of the Mod Jazz And Then Some! on its Kent imprint.

Yes, another volume in the Mod Jazz series, which is always nice to see. There’s yet to be a bad release in that particular series. This volume contains 24 tracks compiled by Ady Croasdell and Dean Rudland and described generally as ‘jazz, bluesy, latino grooves’, mixing some classics with the usual selection of obscure grooves and potential classics of tomorrow.

That includes in-demand 45s by Reuben Wilson and Billy Larkin on Flodavieur , along with Frenchy and The Chessmen’s rare Dave Hamilton productions, plus some lesser-known tunes from the Prestige label and the Nightbeats previously unreleased Leavin Town.

Full listing is below, with the album down for release on 26th Msy 2014. You can pre-order now from Amazon for £9.69 or you can order directly from Ace.
