Following on from the label’s excellent ‘Jazz in the house’ series comes ‘Soul in the house’. After someone spending hours thinking of the title it’s a relief to tell you that the music is of the finest quality. Yeah, there’s some more obvious choices like Lucy Pearl’s “Don’t mess with my man” – albeit the alternative Mood II Swing mix – but then there’s plenty to discover like Soul Central’s truly satisfying “My Vow” and Wil Milton’s West End nugget “I’ll never know”. Still smokin’ !
