Hot Jazz Tracks Week of December 4

Paul Hardcastle History

Hot Jazz Tracks Week of December 4

Paul Hardcastle grabs the top spot this week with Echoes Rising.  This is off The History of Paul Hardcastle, a nice compilation of Paul’s greatest hits.  It is a four disc set.  It also features a nice long chill-out mix, kind of like what we do here with the smoothed out mixes.

I am sure you were introduced to Mr. Hardcastle in 1984, when Rainforest was released.  The song 19 came out in 1985.  Those were two monster hits right out of the gate.

Fun fact:  Rainforest sampled the song Planet Rock by Afrika Bambaataa and Soulsonic Force.

Do I Do, the Peter White interpretation of the Stevie Wonder classic, comes in at number eight this week.
