Whatever it is or isn't, acid jazz is full of groove DNA and even when chilled, it makes the feet move. This set moves and grooves from end to end, and even listeners with little interest in the Acid Jazz movement that surfaced some two decades after most of these tracks were recorded will find a great little alternative dance album lurking here.
