V/A - The Timeless Interpretations - Dopeness Galore
“The Timeless Interpretations” was an idea by Netherlands based label Dopeness Galore (DG) for summer of 2005. That is to say DG hooked up with the Jazzlabel “Timeless” and the formerly simple idea became a just finished project.
But first some background information. “Timeless” is a famous dutch Jazzlabel founded in 1975 and has already a catalogue consisting of more than 700 titles of the most highly anticipated jazz artists of our time. So whats behind the idea? Both labels have revealed only a few old tracks and commissioned a project to actually well known artists to interpret the music in the style of nowadays - but timeless. The producers were given the freedom to create this LP as free and versatile as the word “interpretation” can be interpreted. One aim for sure is to introduce young people to Jazz or making them rediscovering the original tracks. The templates were delivered by artists like Pharoah Sanders, Chat Baker, Vera Cruz or Art Blakey.
