Tab Two - Belle Affaire

Tab Two have been hailed as the German pioneers of Acid Jazz, consisting of Hellmut Hattler on bass and Joo Kraus on trumpet ("Tab" stands for "Trumpet And Bass"). Forming in 1991, they combined Acid Jazz with Hip-Hop, Trip Hop, Drum'n'Bass and other styles.

Belle Affaire was released in 1997. The muted trumpet, moving basslines and hypnotic rhythms make for a very pleasent aural experience.

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".
