The word soul was a buzzword in the lexicon of 50s black America, a potent signifier that defined the essence of African-American culture. Its influence percolated through to black musicians reflecting a newfound sense of pride in their identity. This collection focuses on Soul Jazz's early years with classic cuts from a host of pioneers of a style rarely given the attention it so richly deserves.
