The Hoctor Records label made a bunch of dance-instruction records during the 70s which are on many wantlists around the world. I dare to say that this is one of the most wanted. Jazz in Focus – LP directed by Joe Pugliese . This is not the way I imagined how the music to jazz dance would ever sound before I got this record!!! Done in a solid mixture between heavy funk, jazz and cheasy disco. Not sure that Joe Pugliese has anything to do with the arragements -no musicians are credited. But the record takes us throug a world of smooth grooves and some tough open breaks!!!!
