Cosmic Jazz welcomes ex-ICR presenter Smoothgroove for the first half hour of the show. His shows often revealed his jazz influences and although the sounds may not be from the traditional jazz lexicon, they demonstrate the far-reaching impact of this musical form that we love so much.
The rest of the show featured music from some excellent recent Blue Note, Soul Brother and Impulse compilations. Special guest next week is regular listener and music guru Pete who wlll trade tracks with Derek while Neil is in China.
