Sound Book - Library & Background Sound [de Wolfe]

Label - Irma / La Douce
Recorded - 60s/70s
Style - Lounge, Jazz, Funk, Easy Listening, Music Library, Lee Library, OST

(from scorebaby):
This double disc collects the jazz funk of Euro-club cult fave De Wolfe, whose contribution to the soundtrack sub-genre of "library music" is of unusually high quality. The tracks are sophisticated. The performances are slick. At times, one gets the impression that the musicians who play on these sessions would have satisfied the most demanding band leaders. Sometimes the sound borders on progressive fusion, other times disco funk, and other times it almost sounds like Steely Dan, minus the singing, of course. Knowing its audience, Irma La Douche has provided brief descriptions for each of the 32 tracks. "New Project" is described as "beaty, important". "Harlem Globetrotters" is simply "medium tempo, percussion prominent". Although few of the tracks evoke anything particularily cinematic, all of it is way groovy.
