Sorry only just noticed this msg...
Seen a copy of my mate's, but haven't been able to buy it yet.
Looks very good and in depth. Hopefully better written than Big
Daddy (those articles get so difficult to read if you don't know what
they're about before you read them!). I think the music it covers
though is more BD than SNC, i don't think it'll cover much nujazz or
deep house, but plenty of breaks, funk and jazz. I think there was
an article on Mingus in the first edition.
