The Soul Jazz vernacular was a major contributor to the evolution of Jazz-Funk in the 1970s. Many of the musicians performing soul jazz in the 1960's went on to performing jazz-funk in the 1970's (e.g., Grant Green, Jimmy McGriff, Herbie Hancock, etc.). One way of looking at soul jazz is as the bridge between hard bop and jazz-funk. Soul jazz along with jazz-funk became an important influence on acid jazz.Unlike hard bop, soul jazz generally emphasized repetitive grooves, melodies, and melodic hooks. The kinds of rhythms used tend to vary as well.  INDEED SOULFUL shares this influences of rhythms,grooves and melodic hooks that moves your soul.
