Playlist – 22nd January 2009

We really enjoyed this show and hope you did too. We started with Neil’s mix of Harold Budd and the original sources of his inspiration. Harold Budd is a Californian avant garde/ambient composer whose first recording Pavilion of Dreams (1978) featured the track Two Songs – an ambient vocal arrangements of two then contemporary jazz pieces – a track by Pharoah Sanders from his Impulse album Summun, Bukmun, Umyun (yes, that’s what it’s called!) and After the Rain by John Coltrane. We mixed Budd with the originals and listeners seemed to like it – thanks to Al who called in and emailed to tell us! The rest of the show was our typically eclectic mix of jazz and jazz inflected music, including Stevie Wonder’s classic Too High as well as brand new jazz from Big Bang, Yaw and Beat Out Shrine. All that and some great new jazz from Japan and a track each from Pass It On Dave Holland’s great album from last year and Q-Tip’s back on form first full release for nine years The Renaissance.

Cutting edge new music that defines our thinking about jazz.
