The Story of Jazz Part Six: Better Get
it into Your Soul!
The 1960s witnessed a resurgence of
more soulful jazz, partly as a reaction
to the perceived emotional
disengagement of 'cool' jazz, partly
influenced by the impact of rock.
The result - hard driving combos of
Horace Silver, Art Blakey, Herbie
Hancock and many more.
