Playlist – 31st July 2008

Neil DJing with a solo special on cover versions – artists playing great tracks usually associated with someone else. We started with the uncategorisable Sun Ra and some great dubstep from Quest before kicking off with a blistering live version of Coltrane’s classic Mr PC.

The show ended with a track from the late Salah Rahgab and the Cairo Jazz Band – who also played with Sun Ra – and a final extract from the wonderful live album from Charles Lloyd on ECM.
