EDITORS’ NOTES

In the late '80s and early '90s, artists were adding jazz influences to the modern sounds of R&B and hip-hop, often through the use of samples, and dubbing these compositions “acid jazz”. It may have been underground, but several acts like Jamiroquai enjoyed significant mainstream success. By the late '90s, artists like St. Germain started folding in trip-hop and house, creating "nu jazz".
