Playlist – 13 May 2010

Derek has been again to that wonderful independent record shop in Norwich – Soundclash Records in St. Benedict’s Street (www.soundclash-records.co.uk).  It has reggae, it has Latin, it has music from African countries but it also has a superb selection of jazz on vinyl.  What other record shop do you know that has a vinyl section solely dedicated to Sun Ra records?

The latest acquisitions that Derek played this week included a 1973 live recording from Roy Brooks and the Artistic Truth – a band  who used jazz as expression of their Afrikan-American heritage – and a more recent 2008 recording from Germany, by Jerger Kluge’s Deep Jazz.  To prove once again that jazz has a very wide coalition, Derek also added in the new 12″ single from Quantic and his Combo Barbaro.

Spreading the net yet further, Neil added a track from Canada’s Soul Jazz Orchestra, music from Don Cherry and Latif Khan and a Trinidadian steel pan band playing Fela Kuti.  We had a great time on the show this week – and we hope you really enjoy the music.
