Playlist – 24 February 2011

Eclectic electronica tonight on Cosmic Jazz. We started with where we left off last week – Wadada Leo Smith’s Rosa Parks and then quickly it was into an exclusive.  Thanks to the great Destination Out site, we gave a first play of an unreleased Miles Davis track from 1975, recorded in Shinjuku Kohseinenkin Hall in Tokyo – just ten days before the material that would appear on Agharta and Pangea.

Music too as promised from Brad Mehldau and Jamie XX Smith – plus Wibute, Kieran Hebden and Dave Douglas.  It was live here on CJ – but if you missed it, wait for Listen Again at the weekend.

One thought on “Playlist – 24 February 2011”

  1. This was world’s greatest improvisational acid-funk band. This current generation of jazz and indie listeners will think it was recorded just yesterday. The music sounds post-dub, post-industrial, post-jungle, post-glitch, post ambient – and they did it all live night after night – their own AfroFuturirst version of Dante’s Inferno. Perfect music for the ravaged soul of America post-Vietnam and Watergate and the heroin-hazed ruins of 70s Harlem, Detroit, DC, LA pre disco and P-funk.
