Remix mania continues with two new compilations. Last week, Savoy Jazz’s Nu Groove imprint released Re-Bop, The Savoy Remixes. Quantic, DJ Spooky, DJ Smash, King Britt, and the ubiquitous DJ Logic are some of the top-notch remixers. Among the artists from Savoy’s catalog that receive the new rub are Charlie Parker (who was remixed in the 2003’s overlooked Bird Up! project), the Modern Jazz Quartet, Cannonball Adderley, Herbie Mann, and Dizzy Gillespie. If I’m not mistaken, neither the MJQ or Mr. Mann have not had their music remixed before. Re-Bop is fun, well-done, and will earn many spins on your player.

Miles Davis will be remixed this fall. Evolution of the Groove will feature reworked versions of Davis’s tunes from the likes of Nas and Santana and is set to coincide with the 15th anniversary of his passing in 1991. A Google search couldn’t dig up any more information, not even what label this is on. You know I’ll be watching for information on this.
