Track 16 - Eccentric Trick / Eddie Warner

I'm not sure where the "Jazz" part of this compilation comes into play because it's actually full of library funk and cool electronic tracks. Eddie Warner provides most of the material and his affinity for bombastic percussion is on full show with "Brutas Drums", "Titus", "Night Fight" and "Eccentric Trick" all exhibiting crazy beats. Mixed in are deep bass lines, fuzzy guitars and a smattering of nice organs. From the non Warner tracks "Knock It" and "Hard Labour" by Roger Morris have a bit of a blaxploitation vibe and Cecil Leuter's "Electronic Track" will be of interest to those who enjoyed the "Electronic Toys" compilations. Highly recommended stuff.
