Late Night Tales reissues the classic and hard-to- find ‘Late Night Tales: Jamiroquai’, compiled by none other than Jay Kay himself. The 10th edition of what is now a classic series of compilations was originally released 20 years ago, and hasn’t been available on vinyl for over 15 years. A blissful col- lection of soul, disco, jazz, rare groove, and funk, this collection is an electrifying journey through the aural influences of one of the UK’s most seminal jazz bands.
Jay Kay showcases a wealth and breadth of in- spiration that wouldn’t be amiss on the late-night dancefloors of the Loft (or Giant Steps, for that mat- ter). From The Pointer Sisters’ uplifting and soulful ‘Happiness’ and jazz funk legend Johnny ‘Smith’ Hammond’s ‘Fantasy’ to the anthemic ‘Stay Free’ by Ashford & Simpson and mellifluous ‘Music Of The Earth’ by Patrice Rushen, these two discs form a rite of passage into the creative mind of a true musical legend.
