Playlist – 01 July 2010

Neil kicked off the show with some funky grooves – but where did the music go after that?  Well, we took in a bit of Brazil, some housey jazz with a Pharoah Sanders vibe and a classic sequence from Thelonius Monk with John Coltrane, Max Roach and Miles Davis.  It’s the usual eclectic mix here at Cosmic Jazz.  Enjoy!

This week’s first video clip is another rarity – the mid 60s Miles Davis Quintet at the top of their game.  It’s a heavily edited four minutes or so, but you can still see musical empathy beyond the possible – and amazing drumming from the 18 year old Tony Williams:

Now, ambassador, you are spoiling us with this extra clip of Herbie Hancock’s New Standards group playing Thieves in the Temple.  And – yes – Michael Brecker’s sax is treated to sound like that…
