Playlist – 16 September 2010

Tonight’s Cosmic Jazz had a Brazilian flavour with some Fender Rhodes grooves from Domenico +2 and two tracks from a fascinating new 2CD compilation, Oi! A Nova Musica Brasiliera! Jazz heads weren’t forgotten though – we featured music from the recently released Windmill Tilter, a lost classic from Kenny Wheeler and John Dankworth, and played tracks from two of our favourite alto players – Frank Morgan and Art Pepper.

  1. United Future Organization – United Future Airways
  2. Rosa Passos – Lobo Bobo
  3. Kenny Wheeler and the John Dankworth Orchestra – Sweet Dulcinea Blue
  4. Joe Henderson – Recorda Me
  5. Jam da Silva – Mania
  6. Frank Morgan – Round Midnight
  7. Art Pepper – My Laurie
  8. Oliver Lake – NTU
  9. Domenico + 2 – Comiga
  10. Roy Brooks and the Artistic Truth – The Smart Set

  12. Letta Mbulu – Afro Texas

Video this week is from Art Pepper: Notes from a Jazz Survivor (1982), a film about the alto player’s troubled life.  For more on Pepper, find a copy of the autobiography Straight Life, written with his wife Laurie.
