Playlist – 13 January 2011

The programme tonight offered another chance to hear one of our favourite Cosmic Jazz tracks – Black Renaissance – as a mark of respect for the late Harry Whitaker.
Derek also played lengthy, spiritual, even cosmic tunes. For the first time on the programme we heard pianist Peter Fish recorded when he was a 19 year old, proof that Eddie Harris was a serious jazz musician and more from the recently re-released Asha disc from the Lloyd McNeil Quartet.
Both the Billy Gault tune (from a tribute CD to John Coltrane) and the Peter Fish LP can be found on the Rush Hour site – see under our links section. Rush Hour distributes the Amsterdam-based Kindred Spirits label amongst others. Check them out for their commitment to cosmic jazz.
