Playlist – 07 October 2010

This week Neil was away so it was a solo show from Derek. After the popularity of the title track last week, there was another one from the Randy Weston album Tanjah and a long overdue return to some Japanese jazz. Last week Neil had celebrated Fela Kuti’s birthday with a tune featuring Lester Bowie so this week it was Lester Bowie himself with a tune dedicated to Fela. Equinox and Peace Peace provided beauty and spirituality and there was an acknowledgement of Black History Month through Horace Parlan’s Home is Africa and Our Roots Began in Africa from Pharaoh Sanders.
