Let's face it, it helps to have a little guidance when trying to navigate the world of deep jazz. Thankfully there are comps like this one from BBE that can steer you in the right direction. Compiled by one half of The Amalgamation Of Soundz and If Music record shop owner Jean-Claude, You Need This! A Journey Into Deep Jazz is "designed to be as pleasing to the jazz newbie as the perennial chin-stroker." Comprising of 9 uber-obscure compositions, the chances of finding (or even knowning about) these cuts is slim to none unless you're of the elite digger class. Luckily, we can all afford to add a bit of rare jazz to our crates with this stunning compilation of hip-swaying, toe-tapping productions that are "accessible enough to be enjoyed across the board, yet authentic enough to satisfy the most ardent purist." As Jean-Claude says: "for those of us searching for that elusive groove: it is a lifelong quest!" Comes on double vinyl with gatefold sleeve.
