Playlist – 16th October 2008

Great music this week with a focus on the Coltrane heritage and new Japanese jazz.  Tracks from Kenny Garrett, Pharoah Sanders, Alberto Favero and Coltrane himself followed by two tracks from the brand new Quasimode album Sounds of Peace.  Japanese group What’s Up debuted on the show with a wonderful long track.  We loved this!
We also commemorated the sad death of Jamaican vocalist Alton Ellis with a beautiful version of Ain’t That Lovin You.
Shout outs to Tom (brilliant OffWorld show this week), Pete, Susan, Simon and all our listeners and callers.
