The year’s buzziest jazz artist is a drummer, producer and musical Johnny Appleseed, who travels the globe assembling stellar bands, recording them live and meticulously stitching together the results into sprawling collages of intercontinental groove.
Johnny Hates Jazz are an Anglo-American band who formed in 1986 . Mike worked as an engineer on the ‘Into The Gap’ album, so they go way back. As for me, my musical direction completely changed when I heard ‘Love On Your Side’ for the first time. The combination of a great song, great groove, and great synth sounds was a huge influence.
Johnny Hates Jazz are a British band, currently consisting of Clark Datchler (songwriter, vocalist, keyboards) and Mike Nocito (guitarist, bassist, producer, engineer). In April 1987, they had international success with their first hit single "Shattered Dreams". Both Datchler and Nocito were born into musical families. Datchler's father, Fred, was a member of two chart-topping bands from the 1950s.

Jazz had an amazing 2017. British singer Zara McFarlane, born to Jamaican parents, has always added a splash of reggae to her work, but Arise is more of a jazzy reggae album than a jazz album with some reggae to it. The production is bass-heavy and laced with dubby production techniques, courtesy of hot UK drummer Moses Boyd (of Binker & Moses).
