    On paper, this mix is a tricky one to sell.
    What Zedvantz has done here is take a selection of ragtime/dixie style jazz beat tracks and blended it into one blinding 30 minute mix. With a style of music such as this one I’d argue that its a VERY thin line between brilliance and twee drive. However Zedvantz negotiates that line with aplomb, delivering an exhilarating listen that can’t help but get you nodding your head, whilst drawing attention to a fairly small but brilliant line in obscure twists on a classic genre."

    "For someone who enjoys their jazz served with a spoonful of funky beats, it’s like DJ Zedvantz is preaching to the converted when he puts out a mix like “Turntable Jazz”. The problem with blended music is that it often falls prey to the enormous egos of all genres involved, and even more often reeks of marketing opportunism. And this, of course, ultimately subjects the listener to an abysmal state of boredom. That is not the case here though: the Toronto-based DJ proves to be a deep connoisseur of both jazz and turntablism, and of where one half should meet the other."

    "The influence of jazz on hip-hop is never as evident as on cuts of the latter that sample the former, and that legacy in transition is rarely as fully fleshed out as on Turntable Jazz, a recent mix by DJ Zedvantz. The set packs together 11 cuts, including a Billie Holiday remix and more great acoustic bass lines, plinkety piano riffs, stripped-bare beats, and guttural scat than you can throw a sampler at. If the Cotton Club had a resident DJ, Turntable Jazz is what he’d sound like on a good night."

    Blogosféra patří mezi nejzajímavější místa virtuálního světa
    Při mém posledním surfování po blozích jsem narazil na mixtape se zajímavě
    znějícím názvem Turntable Jazz, o který se postaral mně do té doby neznámý DJ ZedVantz z Toronta.

    Dílo Turntable Jazz zcela vystihuje jeho jméno. Jedná se o mixtape, který propojuje staré jazzové šlágry s hiphopovými groovy, jedná se o mixtape, kde DJ mluví rukama. ZedVantz namíchal Turntable Jazz již v loňském roce. Vzhledem k tomu, že jsem na českých webech
    neobjevil jedinou zmínku, která by se ho týkala, rozhodl jsem se, že ho nemůžu nezprostředkovat dál. Turntable Jazz je totiž především naprosto úžasný.
