New York house music vocalist MJ White has passed away, according to reports on social media. The cause of the singer’s death is not
known at the moment.
White, whose style ranged from hard club tracks to soulful ballads, worked with a range of producers and recorded for various indie
labels during his storied career including Classified, Bottom Line, Chez Music and Groove On. White was was also a member of the trio
Donatella Movement and also had an experience with a major label: In 1991, Scandalous feat. MJ White’s “Still Irresistible” was
released by Atlantic Records. His tracks were also featured on Hed Kandi compilations.
Born the son of a baptist minister in North Carolina, he moved to New York City to pursue gospel-inspired music and undoubtedly
accomplished his goal. Known for his towering falsetto, he also incorporated elements of jazz into the many projects he was associated
with.
Austria-based Mjuzieek Digital, who issued “Brothers & Sisters” with Pray For More earlier this month, issued a statement on Facebook:
We are deeply saddened to hear about the passing of our good friend and Mjuzieek Digital recording artist MJ White , We’re truly in
shock. Such a fantastic voice and an amazingly kind soul. You will be missed brother, Rest In Peace dear friend!
We only just released your latest collaboration track with Pray for More 2 weeks ago, called Brothers & SIsters, and had so much more
tracks planned….
For now, let’s reflect on a few of MJ White’s magical musical moments over the past few years.
Stay Blessed

COLIN CURTIS HEWAN CLARKE JAZZ N SOUL N STUFF 3 NOV 2015 LEGACY 90.1FM MANCHESTER




Berlin 80s Tuesday Nights
I don’t remember if this club night had a name! It was Hewan Clarke and Colin Curtis playing jazz-dance and soul, and when I discovered the night in 1985, it had already been running for a couple of years. Berlin was a small basement club, at 38 King Street West, Manchester M3 2WZ, tucked in just behind Kendals (House of Fraser) off Deansgate.
I went there with my friend Angela to hear the jazz-dance music played early on… and to see the amazing jazz dancing; most of the dancers were men dancing solo, freestyle. The Jazz Defektors danced there (pictured above) along with Foot Patrol, Trafford, Danny Henry and Suzanne Fenby amongst others.
To get some idea of their style, here are The Jazz Defektors opening a fashion show in Japan:
Sadly, I can’t find much film footage of the original Jazz Defektor dancers, as opposed to the band which The Jazz Defektors later became (which I was less keen on.)
Many of the jazz/jazz-latin tracks which were played at The Berlin in the ’80s subsequently turned up on the Street Sounds Jazz Juice compilations, for instance:
Gilberto Gil – Maracatu Atomico
I loved the following track and I pestered the DJs for the name of it; Colin Curtis informed me impatiently that I would never find a copy because it was so rare. Infact, I was able to buy it soon after, when Streetsounds released it on Jazz Juice 7 in 1988:
Charles Earland – Murilley
Right at the end of the night, Colin Curtis would play Marvin Gaye’s ‘What’s Going On?’ and Isley Brothers’ ‘Harvest For The World’ – this was before The Christians covered it and ruined it for everyone.
Isley Brothers – Harvest For The World (1976)
I was only reminded of this when I went to a revival night at BOTW in 2011. Hearing those songs unexpectedly transported me right back to being in The Berlin in the mid-80s, and I suddenly felt quite emotional – I caught a fleeting glimpse of my old excitement at knowing that there are hundreds of amazing records out there just waiting to be discovered!
For more Old School Jazz Dance look up IDJ, Brothers in Jazz (London) and The Floor Technicians (Bristol) on YouTube. I saw IDJ (I Dance Jazz) in 1987 when they toured with the saxophonist Steve Williamson. Their style combined the grace of the Jazz Defektors with the athletic footwork of Foot Patrol.
