Snowboy's Jazz Room @ Southport

Check out this video of the UK Jazz Dancers in action at Snowboy's Jazz Room during the Southport Weekender. This session is from almost 2 years ago, but Snowboy and the dancers are burning it up!

There is a wealth of info through Snowboy's site. He just released a book "From Jazz Funk and Fusion to Acid Jazz", which highlights the history of the UK jazz dance scene. Of course this coincides with what Snowboy himself has been up to for the past few decades, and encompasses an enormous amount of influence from (and on) such amazing selectors as Gilles Peterson, Paul Murphy, Russ Dewbury, Patrick Forge and many others.

Here are a couple more videos from an afternoon at Dingwalls
