Tonight’s show features music from Miroslav Vitous, Brian Eno, Gabor Szabo, Miles Davis, Gato Barbieri and Timmy Thomas. Yes, it’s Cosmic Jazz – where the jazz is truly outernational!
Now we can’t get enough of Francisco Mora Catlett at the moment – and it was great that Tom ended his Offworld show tonight with an excellent Carl Craig remix of a Catlett track. We recommend a listen to Offworld (6-8pm every Thursday on ICR) for more inspiring dance-related music – ear candy for the head and heart!
The surprises tonight made the show feel very different – a Soil and “Pimp” Session track that was rather chilled, a blistering late Larry Young tune, Wynton Marsalis doing salsa, Bobby Womack and Gabor Szabo trading licks on a wonderful CD release of a classic album and John Coltrane squalling his way through a final take on My Favourite Things.
