Welcome to the Acid Jazz Mailing List! This list talks about a whole
range of "Acid Jazz" and funky music. The collection of funky vibes and
cool tunes on Rebirth of Cool I-III are a good indication of the group's
direction, but don't fell limited to that. Check out This Is Acid Jazz
on Instict Records or any Totally Wired on Acid Jazz to get a good idea
of our styles. We have come up with no good definition of what Acid
Jazz really is, so if there's a question, just ask. You might want to
check out where our last discussion left us in the Acid Jazz FAQ at the
Acid Jazz Masaic site (see below). For those who are really have no
idea, some of the most recent and widely known acts are Brand New
Heavies, Jamiroquai, US3, Young Disciples, United Future Organization
and even Guru.

of these addresses.
You can also check out the the Acid Jazz Mosaic site in Sweden for some
more info. It is getting updated all the time, so I don't know for sure
what all is on it. You might want to check this out first, because a lot
of your questions could be answered here.

There is quite a bit of traffic on this list- five to ten messages avg.
a *day*. Please don't post to the list to unsub, or tell your friends to
post to the list to subscribe because you forgot the address. There are
a *lot* of people on the list who are paying for their access to email-
I don't want to clog them up with irrelevant stuff when there is already
so much traffic.
As usual, be aware of Netiquette- read a few posts first before posting.
Also, even though this list is unmoderated, you can get yanked if you
start to post offensive shit. I believe in the 1st Amendment, but I also
believe in respect. There are plenty of other venues for offensive
stuff (see rec.humour).
I listen to a wide range of music, and so does everyone else- I like
techno, house, rock and jazz. But this is an *Acid Jazz* mailing list.
Please no requests for techno or garage or grunge info. :-) If you
of a record that people *must* hear, .....mmm OK, but always try to
include the "obligatory a-jazz/related" comment (OBA-Jazz)... :-)
This, of course, gets me into trouble because "What *is* acid jazz?"
Suffice to say Praga Khan or Smashing Pumpkins have no place here.
Also- if you belong to some organization, group, fanzine, whatever- we
*want* to hear about you. Tell us if you play any instruments, or if
you are part of a band. However this list is *not* a free advertising
venue. If you are a writer for a magazine or music corporation of some
sort- NO CORPORATE ADS. Feel free to use any info gleaned from this
list, and feel free to share, but please don't use us as free publicity-
infomercials are OK (the more info, the better). :-)
One last reminder. In my opinion, Acid Jazz and related musics are
usually about peace and the struggle against oppression (for our
brothers *and* sisters). In that vibe, be respectful- disagree, but
don't slam people. Don't flame on the list- flame personally if you
to at all.
Now, after all that heavy stuff, Welcome!! Kick back and mellow to the
schmoov sounds of acid jazz.....
