In conjunction with Snow Dog Projects and Black Jazz Records, Jazzy Sport crew member DJ Mitsu The Beats has composed a seamless mix of tracks selected from the Black Jazz catalog. Well-known for his hip-hop mixes, Mitsu takes a 20+ year veteran DJ's perspective here, more often than not segueing complete tracks, as opposed to doubling and cutting breaks, for a 70+ minute trip through vintage 1970s spiritual jazz that a listener can lose themselves in. Of course, beats and breaks and funk abound here, but the emphasis of this mix lands on the original label's (Black Jazz) overall vibe, while highlighting the funkier edge to the catalog, one that has collectors chasing original vinyl copies to this day. This is part one of a three-disc mix series, coordinated with remastered reissues of the original albums on CD, featuring newly-discovered photographs and artwork. Features artists such as Doug Carn, Henry Franklin, Rudolph Johnson, The Awakening, Walter Bishop Jr., Chester Thompson, Gene Russell, Roland Haynes, Kellee Patterson and Calvin Keys.
