Playlist – 17th July 2008

A solo show from Derek with a jazz mix as ever, plus a nod to reggae and Congolese soukous. Archie Shepp’s There’s a Trumpet in my Soul provided a strong opening. Joe Henderson, Donald Byrd, Jackie McLean, Hank Mobley and Lou Donaldson showed the different flavours of Blue Note and Soil & Pimp Sessions and Quasimode supplied the customary acknowledgement of Japanese jazz.
