Playlist – 1st January 2009

This programme included some tidying up from our Best of 2008 show, with records that inexplicably had been overlooked in that programme – for example Leucocyte – the last-ever album from EST following the death in 2008 of Esbjorn Svensson and the wonderfully relaxed and atmospheric album The Dreamer by José James. For most of the show, however, it was a New Year jazz party. At times, the outer limits of ‘jazz’ were reached but then that is what Cosmic Jazz does.

Listen to our first live show of 2009 when there will be a tribute to the great jazz trumpeter Freddie Hubbard who died on 29 December 2008. Keep in touch, also, to find out about our celebration of 70 years of Blue Note records at the Saints tapas bar in Ipswich.
