Greetje Kauffeld / Day By Day (1974) Dutch jazz singer Greetje Kauffeld was born 26/11/39. Although her career already started in the late 50's, she had her first and only chart success in the Netherlands in 1968. She was far more popular in the German speaking countries and her biggest hit there was her 1964 hit "Wir Können Uns Nur Briefe Schreiben".
The Berry Lipman Singers / The Girls From Paramaribo (1971) Although Berry Lipman (real name Friedel Berlipp) lost two fingers of his hand in a war injury and had to switch from violin to guitar, he became chief arranger, studio orchestra leader and house composer for EMI Germany, where he tailored hits for Gitte, Conny Froboess, Chris Howland, Lale Andersen, Cliff Richard and many others. When he moved on to Ariola in 1961, he added work with international artists such as Charles Aznavour, Dalida, Petula Clark amd Pat Boone. In 1967 Lipman founded the Berry Lipman Orchestra, for which he created what's been dubbed the original "Berry Lipman Sound".
Les McCann / Boo-Go-Loo (1967) Les McCann reached the peak of his career at the 1968 Montreux Jazz Festival. His soulful funk style on piano was influential and McCann's singing was largely secondary until the mid-'60s. He recorded many albums for Pacific Jazz during 1960-64, mostly with his trio but also featuring Ben Webster, Richard "Groove" Holmes, Blue Mitchell, Stanley Turrentine, Joe Pass, the Jazz Crusaders and the Gerald Wilson Orchestra.
Yvonne Fair / It Should Have Been Me (1975) Taken from the album "The Bitch is black". Like many singings at Motown, Yvonne Fair was a major talent but a minor star. Fortunately she had a symphathetic producer in Norman Whitfield, who was astute enough to showcase her firepower. From funky dance tracks like "Walk Out the Door if You Wanna" to stunning ballads like "It Should Have Been Me," this out-of-print album is well-worth seeking out .
Sergio Mendes / Roda (1968) Sergio Mendes' group, Brasil '66, created some of the best jet set pop ever heard. Trained at the local conservatory in Niteroi, Brazil, Mendes became a versatile pianist. Starting out as a professional musician just as the roots of bossa nova were beginning to emerge, Mendes embraced the hybrid of jazz and Latin music and was soon appearing alongside Jobim and Gilberto.
Manfred Krug / Wenn der Urlaub kommt (DDR 1975) German actor and singer Manfred Krug worked at a steel plant before beginning his acting career on the stage and, ultimately, in film and television. In the 1980s and 1990s, he also starred as Hauptkommissar Paul Stoever in the Tatort series and as a friendly lawyer in "Liebling Kreuzberg". Krug also achieved notability as a popular jazz singer, often in collaboration with composer Guenther Fischer.

Der Albumtitel lässt das schlimmste befürchten: Dudel-House im Chill Out Mix? Weit gefehlt! Rekid ist Matt Edwards, auch bekannt als Radio Slave. Neben seiner Tätigkeit als gefragter Remixer (unter anderem für DJ Hell und Carl Craig) bastelt er an elektronischen Landschaften, die eher Tundra als Strand sind und mehr mit raffiniertem Electro-Disco, futuristischem Hip-Hop und abstraktem House zu tun haben als mit balearischem Feelgood-Party-Sound.
