EAST SAINT LOUIS, IL-native DJ/Producer NAPPY DJ NEEDLES has crafted a mix series that is a musical creole gumbo of SOUL, JAZZ, FUNK, and HIP HOP, with the inaugural installment entitled, JAZZYPHATNAPPY: LIVE FROM The DARK ROOM - VOL. 1.
This edition of SUNDAY MORNING JAZZ is most definitely way outside the box of what most would probably even consider to be Jazz.
However; NAPPY DJ NEEDLES manipulates his instruments - the 1s and 2s, to create what most definitely IS a jazzy vibe that will keep your head nodding, your fingers snapping, and toes tapping.
And if YOU listen closely enough, you WILL hear the JAZZ.
NAPPY DJ NEEDLES says;
"JAZZYPHATNAPPY is a Progressive Hip Hop/Afro-Soul weekly event and mixtape series created by Nappy DJ Needles. The event began in St. Louis, running from 2001 to 2007, holding residence at Churchill's (now Pi), Nik's Wine Bar and 609. After a 7-year hiatus (with a few special JPN events here and there), the official weekly has returned to a new venue delivering that feel-good vibe once again.
This mix was recorded live at the DARK ROOM on April 4, 2014."HAPPY NAPPY DJ NEEDLES JAZZYPHATNAPPY SUNDAY MORNING JAZZ!!!
PEACE, LOVE, And SUNDAY MORNING JAZZY BLESSINGS;
