Defected Records is proud to present the next In The House album produced by the legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff. Famed for his work within Hip Hop, Jeff takes a little diversion from his traditional sound. He produces what can only be described as a fantastic insight into house music.
"I want to take what Mr. Gamble and Mr. Huff did in the 70s and continue the progression of the Philly Sound," he explains. And this is exactly what Jeff has done with his FIRST house music compilation Jazzy Jeff In The House. The triple-CD collection includes a bonus CD ROM with exclusive interview, photo gallery, special downloads and much more.
This is a collection of contemporary and classic house from one of the biggest DJs in the business and a must-have for anyones dance music collection!
Top customer reviews
The hiphop legend has put together 3 CD's worth of classic house and oldschool. And when talking about oldschool, I mean musicians like The Temptations, Booker T & The MGs, Kool & The Gang, Hamilton Bohannon, Barry White, Nina Simone and many others. And in addition to that, house hedas like Kerri Chandler, Kenny Dope, Soldiers of Twilight, DJ Gregory, Julie McKnight, Jody Watley, Blaze and the list goes on!
The main reason why this CD stands high above the rest of ITH series, is it's classic approach. Jazzy Jeff blends together good old funk classics with some modern house tracks. Yet, he leaves out some of the dancefloor tracks from this or previous year. It has those surely selected tracks that all play their part well. It works! All the way!
It's hard to review the compilation which includes tracks that have pages of stories to tell.
I'll just put it short, if you "consume" a bit more music than the avarage bloke, you need this one!
So I definitely recommend this CD set to those who love Jazzy Jeff and/or those who love house music as well.
There should be more African American DJs involved in house music, after all, African Americans started it, and the true essence of house music is Black Music.
There are some very talented DJs out there, but they are missing the soul, because they are losing the foundation.
Jazzy Jeff brings it back on this CD. Jazzy Jeff is originally a Hip Hop DJ from Philly, but he shows you that House and Hip Hop come from the same foundation "SOUL MUSIC".
