Average White BandAverage White Band

Their self-effacing name to the contrary, Average White Band was anything but — one of the few white groups to cross the color line and achieve success and credibility playing funk, with their tight, fiery sound also belying their Scottish heritage, evoking American R&B hotbeds like Detroit, Memphis, and Philadelphia instead. 

Baby MammothBaby Mammoth

Amidst heavy competition, Baby Mammoth is the Pork label's most prolific act, packing in five full LPs of blunted instrumental hip-hop between their debut in late 1996 and the end of the decade. 

Beady BelleBeady Belle

Beady Belle is a result of collaboration between Beate S. Lech and Marius Reksjø which began at the University of Oslo. As music students the two started playing together in bands such as “Insertcoin” and “Folk & Røvere”, a project where Beate was the lead singer up until their third album in 1999.

Billy CobhamBilly Cobham

Generally acclaimed as fusion's greatest drummer, Billy Cobham's explosive technique powered some of the genre's most important early recordings — including groundbreaking efforts by Miles Davis and the Mahavishnu Orchestra — before he became an accomplished bandleader in his own right. 

Black & BrownBlack & Brown

Legendary IRMA act Black & Brown, headed by Picchio Bagnoli and Andrea Raffini (bass and guitar of the band, but also authors of all their original compositions) have been around for nearly 20 years and are known as the most prestigious funk band in Italy.

Blue KnightsBlue Knights

The music of Blue Knights thrives on rhythms and a very jazz influenced groove-piano. Amazing production, rich sounds and some very tight arranging and playing will capture all fun loving music gourmets.

Bobby McFerrinBobby McFerrin

Vocal virtuoso Bobby McFerrin ranks among the most distinctive and original singers in contemporary music — equally adept in jazz, pop, and classical settings, his octave-jumping trademark style, with its rhythmic inhalations and stop-on-a-dime shifts from falsetto to deep bass notes often sounds like the work of at least two or three singers at once, while at the same time sounding quite unlike anyone else.

Bossa NostraBossa Nostra

Bossa Nostra is a band composed of master Italian musicians that has launched jazz music into a new orbit. The band's creativity reached its highest peak with its 1999 release, Kharmalion, which featured notable vocalist guest star Bruna Loppez. With her husky, powerful voice, Loppez introduced Italian jazz to multinational audiences all over the world.
