Released in 2013 as a mixed CD from Japan’s Snowdog Records, Theo Parrish hand picked his favorite cuts from Detroit’s Black Jazz Records. Though this being the 4th in the series including such renowned DJs / Diggers DJ Muro and Gilles Peterson, it is the first from the series to see a vinyl release!… an UNMIXED VINYL at that!! The 12 tracks sprawl across the 2LP set and for anyone familiar with Theo or his DJ sets, dude can get pretty heady. Spiritual, Free, or whatever you want to call it, this ish is DEEP. We picked some of our favorites from the album below. Give them a listen and click on the link to pick up Theo’s Black Jazz Signature 2LP.
Walter Bishop Jr “Those Who Chant”
Gene Russell “My Favorite Things”
