Playlist – 10 June 2010

Another solo Cosmic Jazz show from Derek but with Neil’s selections in there too.  New music came from two DJ-compiled collections : Gilles Peterson’s Horo – a Jazz Portrait, featuring music from the great Italian label, and Adrian Gibson’s Music for Jazz Dancers, featuring tracks played at his legendary Messin’ Around sessions at London’s Jazz Cafe.

Also on the menu tonight was a great update on the Brazilian classic Nebulosa and a very impressive collaboration between nu soul outfit Fertile Ground and Italian club jazz maestro Nicola Conte.  Enjoy this one – and dance!

  2. Stafford James – Costa bruciata
  3. Neil Cowley Trio – Stereoface
  4. Wallace Roney – Metropolis
  5. Monica Vasconcelos – A Terceira Margem do Rio
  6. Kenichiro Nishihara – Nebulosa
  7. The Soul Jazz Orchestra – Rejoice Pt. 2

  1. Can’t wait to hear music from both of these great compilations – will be tuning in as soon as you’re on air!

  2. Yep! That’s a great start – I’m so pleased you’ve gone for the Stafford James. He’s played with just about everyone – from Pharoah Sanders to Sun Ra. I think this comes from his first album. The trumpet player might be Enrico Rava if it is – I’ll check this out.

  3. Hi Derek – yes, the Stafford James track has Dave Burrell on piano, Beaver Harris on drums and Enrico Rava on trumpet. More from Horo please!
