    1. How did you get into 31?
    Magnolia Electric Co.

    It wasn't until 2007 when the band released Sojourner. I had liked some of what I'd heard from Songs:Ohia and thought I'd give this a shot too. Despite liking Sojourner pretty well, I still haven't dug much into their back catalog.

    2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22?
    Leonard Cohen

    Probably Chelsea Hotel. Or Hallelujah - though I don't know if it was his version or not.

    3. What's your favourite lyric by 29?
    The Beatles

    Meh, I dunno.

    "And when the broken hearted people
    Living in the world agree,
    There will be an answer, Let It Be."

    4. What is your favourite album by 49?
    The Kinks

    Kinda Kinks

    5. How many albums by 13 do you own?
    Elephant Micah

    Physically? Zero. Digital? I think 12.

    6. What is your favourite song by 50?
    Violent Femmes

    Kiss Off

    7. Is there a song by 4 that makes you sad?
    Sam Cooke

    Definitely. A Change Is Gonna Come - there is so much emotion in his…

    In 1947, the term rhythm and blues was coined as a musical marketing term in the United States by Jerry Wexler of Billboard magazine.

    Late 1940s
    It replaced the term race music (which originally came from within the black community, but was deemed offensive in the postwar world. In that year, Louis Jordan dominated the top five listings of the R&B charts with three songs, and two of the top five songs were based on the boogie-woogie rhythms that had come to prominence during the 1940s. Jordan's band, the Tymphany Five(formed in 1938), consisted of him on saxophone and vocals, along with musicians on trumpet, tenor saxophone, piano, bass and drums. Lawrence Cohn described the music as "grittier than his boogie-era jazz-tinged blues". …

    ...well it's not strictly speaking Jazz but more Dancefloor Jazz. It's been a while since I last listened to Mojo Club Dancefloor Jazz Vol 3 but I've been bopping my head to it all day at work!

    Personally these are my favorite tracks, and would recommend anyone with any form of "Dance Jazz/Acid Jazz" leanings to give them a listen:

    Dave Pike - Mathar
    David Ruffin - Blood Donors Needed (Give All You Can)
    Don Covay - Overtime Man
    The Isleys - Work to Do
