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.
