Overview

This budget-priced compilation issued via Verve's Jazz Club imprint spotlights the myriad pop, soul, bossa nova and psychedelia covers issued by jazz acts young and old as the counterculture era blossomed. Reviled by purists and critics in its original release, the music that makes up Jazz Swings Pop is now rightly revered by historians and crate diggers alike as the building blocks behind funk, hip-hop and acid jazz. Culled from the archives of labels including Cadet and MPS, these songs boast a timelessness and appeal that transcends genre--what matters most is the groove, and the best cuts like Gary McFarland's "Satisfaction," Horst Jankowski's "Soulful Strut" and Les McCann's "Sunny" rival or even surpass the originals.
