“Two Sides Of Blue Funk” is a single release by a live deep house/jazz duo Jan Kinčl & Regis Kattie. The release is based around “Blue Funk” track borrowed from their globally acclaimed debut album “In Plain Sight”, and re-imagined in several different versions to showcase the full musical spectrum in which they operate - deep house and jazz.
English-titled house versions are the original mix and a remix by Detroit producer Javonntte & Jan Kinčl; while the French-titled “Funk Bleu” jazz versions come in the form of an instrumental rework featuring respected local musicians Krunoslav Levačić, Davor Križić and Luka Veselinović; and Janko Novoselić’s ‘The Cuban Space Program’ live version featuring again some of the best Croatia has to offer - Hrvoje Rupčić, Hrvoje Galler and Zvonimir Šestak.

Only recently discovered this and am asking myself why I had never heard of Yussef Dayes in particular... live this whole album. Such musicianship and a fresh/modern take on classic jazz forms. Massive respect to the musicians Pilot Fish
