Your guide to Philly's diverse creative scene, nightlife, music, food & more
Watch the third video in a series on DJ Jazzy Jeff. Get an inside look into the legendary DJ's take on Philly's music culture--from Gamble & Huff to now.
Watch the video below. You might be surprised by some of his music ties to Philly's music legacy!
Many hits that have come out of Philly since 2000 have been touched by DJ Jazzy Jeff's music production company, A Touch of Jazz, in some way. He began the company as way to experiment with different sounds, and it quickly became a breeding ground of the soul music resurgence that came out of Philly. Mega talents--artists like Jill Scott and Musiq Soulchild and songwriters/producers like Carvin & Ivan and Dre & Vidal--really developed their skills and sounds at A Touch of Jazz. Not to mention having major artists who recorded there, like Michael Jackson.
Watch the video to see what the legendary DJ had to say about A Touch of Jazz when we caught up with him in his recording studio.
