Selections From The Best of Perception & Today Records [BBE, 2012]

“Gingele” by Astrud Gilberto

“Matrix” by Dizzy Gillespie

“Honey Buns” by Bobby Rydell

I recently reviewed this terrific comp and it’s worth mentioning again since its one of the year’s best.  What was meant to be a guest post over at one of my favorite sites, soul-sides.com, ended up schooling me on some history on one of the most short-lived yet varied labels ever, Perception Records (and its subsidiary, Today).  What the comp compiles (and what you essentially hear) is a straight forward jazz label struggling to adapt itself to shifting musical trends, reaching out far and wide, sometimes radically, to stay afloat.  The result was a hodgepodge of songs, huge hits, rare renditions, and artists in different career stages all on one magnificent catalogue.  The comp was compiled by DJ Spinna & BBE Soundsystem, take a look at the review for more.
