So far, J&FF´s Friday Jazz has presented music from the 50s, 60s and 70s, so I guess it´s about time we give you some contemporary sounds.
In 2010, the brilliant Swedish trumpeter/composer Goran Kajfes released a great album called X/Y. The opening track, called Sand Boogie, is a real knockout: it has one of the hippest grooves I ever heard, the tune is super catchy yet original, and the sound is incredible.
Goran´s band, a Swedish all-star line-up called Subtropic Arkestra, plays great throughout the album, and they´re also a really happening live band, as the second video shows. Despite crappy audio and some drunken filming, the video is highly enjoyable.
Here´s the awesome album version (the video, presumably made by the kind individual who put the song on YouTube, leaves something to be desired, though;):
And here´s the live video:
