Quartette Tres Bien – Boss Tres Bien
Mike Campbell – And It All Goes Round & Round

Hi guys.Here is my latest mix for your ears and feet. Nice blend of old and new with some excellent re-edits of classic favorites. The George Benson re-edit is having an immeadiate affect on the dance floor as it used to do many years ago in it`s original version and I like the Mas Que Nada re-edit a lot. This time around it`s Elzaa Soares version to get the treatment instead of the Sergio Mendes` classic.
Farah Quintet have an album  release in Japan. Import in the UK is available but I ain`t got mine yet. Their version of Dee Felice Trio`s - Nightingale is excellent and worth checking out. The version on the mix is a remix of that.........they don`t hang about do they. Others worth mentioning is the 12 Fingers - Reis and Piratas (off one of the Irma `Sister Bossa` albums) been playing this out for while and it always gets those feet moving. A tip of the hat to some absolute dance jazz classics in the form of Quatette Tres Bien and Mike Campbell. hope you enjoy the music.
