Arguably one of the most important releases of the early post-punk years, 20 Jazz Funk Greats is the only wholly studio-recorded album by the pioneer industrial music group Throbbing Gristle during its first incarnation (1975–1981). There's beauty in the stark landscapes of tunes like the serpentine title track, the lunar scenery of “Tanith,” and the windswept “Beachy Head” (the location of the cover photo, infamous for suicides). “Convincing People” pulses with an ominous tone, due in no small part to Genesis P-Orridge’s mind-control vocal performance and the hissing synthesizers throughout, while “Exotica” pays homage to that genre as it shrouds the promise of a sunny Pacific paradise in a disorienting fog. “Hot on the Heels of Love”—with its cracking whip and Cosey Fanni Tutti’s sexually charged whispers—has the same futuristic pop appeal of Throbbing Gristle's 1978 single “United.” Elsewhere, P-Orridge’s unsettling utterances in “Persuasion” are chilling, a Kraftwerkian sheen glistens on “Walkabout,” and “What a Day” grinds repetitively like a ticking clock on a factory wall. The dank, grimy guitar humming under crisp electronic percussion on “Six Six Sixties” pulls the record to a tidy close.
