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.

This week’s video is some rare footage of Don Cherry (surely a world music pioneer?) in concert sometime in the 1960s with South African Johnny Dyani on bass and Turkey’s Okay Temiz on percussion.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TUIgVzzk9PY&feature=related
