Info: After the big Jazzanova artist year in 2002, which saw the release of their debut album amongst several remix 12inches, it’s time to round up their A&R work and so Jazzanova put together a ‘best of’ album of wisely selected Jazzanova-Compost-Records goodies. Listening to these 15 tracks you will certainly understand why JCR is one of the highest rated labels in the dance business. JCR isn’t the label that seeks for the big artist pool. Every artist for this label is very well chosen and in most cases a long-time friendship exists. So this is the true family affair… Bear in mind that many tracks here are available for the first time on CD format. Alongside to JCR’s first label compilation on CD, there will also be a 12” release (JCR 037) featuring strictly new material by Rima (watch out for their debut album on JCR, coming soon), The Underwolves and Victor Davies. Below you’ll find some news and press quotes on each artist’s track.
