Black & Brown - Cool Affair


Black & Brown met in 1983 in a cellar in Bologna, Italy. Made up of Andrea Raffini and Picchio their idea was to create a cover band geared towards funk. Their repertoir consisted mostly of songs by their idol James Brown, the rest were songs by Wilson Pickett, AWB, etc. Their name grew from this combination: Black (the type of music) and Brown (their idol). Their lineup consisted of drums, bass, two guitars, voice and sax.

With a five year span between their first album (File Under Funk), Cool Affair was released in 2000. This album was recorded in their home studio, and, unlike their first album, was completely instrumental.

What is 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 developed over the 1980s and 1990s and could be seen as tacking the sound of jazz-funk onto electronic dance/pop music.

The compositions of groups such as The Brand New Heavies and Incognito often feature chord structures usually associated with Jazz music. The Heavies in particular were known in their early years for beginning their songs as catchy pop and rapidly steering them into jazz territory before "resolving" the composition and thus not losing any pop listeners but successfully "exposing" them to jazz elements in "baby steps".

The acid jazz "movement" is also seen as a "revival" of jazz-funk or jazz fusion or soul jazz by leading DJs such as Norman Jay or Gilles Peterson or Patrick Forge, also known as "rare groove crate diggers".
