Product Description & Reviews
Beside their own productions, DJ gigs and work for their SONAR KOLEKTIV label, the Berlin collective JAZZANOVA are building a reputation as successful compilers. From lost Eastern European deep jazz, to Brazilian sounds to straight up club mixes the eclectic range of music covered by their compilations has earned them worldwide respect. The new compilation, 'Computer Incarnations For World Peace' which Jazzanova member ALEX BARCK has put together with GERD JANSON (of Running Back Records) focuses on the early 80s, the years 1981 and 1982 in particular. This was an extremely exciting phase for production technology as sampler and computers - which are a central part of any sound studio today - were starting to be used for the first time. Many of the tracks here originate from a new wave context but there are also pieces by jazz percussionist RAY BARRETO as well as the French jazz-fusion violinist JEAN-LUC PONTY which on first glance are closer to the Jazzanova musical spirit than the somewhat cool sounding new wave aesthetic. The obvious "new wave" names have been left out and instead some almost forgotten tunes have been brought back into daylight from the likes of PROPAGANDA, THE FIXX & WILL POWERS.
