Operation Heritage

After your request, here is OPERATION HERITAGE !

The French Jazz-Funk was born. It's not a badly imitated American funk. This music succeeded in being a crossroad, a hub of Jazz and popular music. In other words, a music both wholly accessible and skillful and at the same time dancable and cerebral. It couldn't wait any longer to make this music known. Come and enjoy the sound of the groovy French hippies of CORTEX, the powerful Funk of ICE ( "the seven Americans in Paris"), the marvelous melodies (check out the loops!!!) of Daniel Janin and Jean-Claude Pierric, the beat of Harlem Pop Trotters, the disco-funk of Etienne Cap or the jazz-funk of Chute Libre. This is pure roots and funky music from the 70's !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
