Acid jazz

Acid jazz (also known as club jazz) is a musical genre that combines elements of soul music, funk, disco, particularly looping beats and modal harmony. It first developed in America in a simplistic form from artists such as Sonny Stitt who infused funk, gospel, jazz, and other popular genres with a recurring backbeat. In the UK it developed over the 1980s and 1990s and could be seen as tacking the sound of jazz-funk onto electronic dance/pop music for the UK. Read more…|Edit this Artist photo: Amon Tobin

    "it's just shitty fucking pop music with like the tiniest of funk elements" Doesn't seem like you have already listened to acid jazz... I think you're confusing acid jazz with smooth jazz.

    this genre fucking sucks, as it's neither acid or jazz, it's just shitty fucking pop music with like the tiniest of funk elements (like a majority of pop music)
