Just out is the latest collection in this ongoing series – Soho Scene 1964-65 (Jazz Goes Mod).

A lot of music for your money too, courtesy of RnB Records. What’s it all about. Well, the official write-up says…

As the UK fired up to the ‘White Heat’ predicted by its new Prime Minister Harold Wilson, the nation’s jazz scene was already aglow with talent, both established and up and coming.

Indeed, London was a boiling crucible of jazz invention, mixing R&B, Hard Bop and a pinch of the Avant-Garde to forge its very own alchemic brand of jazz. Soho Scene ’64/’65 captures this moment perfectly, a time when The Beatles and Bond were both new and fresh and when Brit-Jazz sounded as colourful and swinging as anything sashaying down Carnaby Street.

That’s pretty much all you need to know except for track listing of this four-disc set, outside of the tracklisting, which you can find below.

If you want a copy, the set sells for £19.60.
