The End Is Near: A Black Jazz Mix by DJ Froz One

Black Jazz Records was a Jazz label founded in Oakland California by Jazz pianist Gene Russell in the early 70s as an alternative to traditional Jazz.

Contributing blogger and avid record nerd Froz 1 lovingly compiled a mix of label highlights, and it is perfect company for the on set of fall. If you see him in the streets buy him a coffee and give him a hug. You owe him at least that.

 As a side note, the entire Black Jazz catalogue of master tapes is for sale on Craigslist. Just saying.
