Playlist – 09 June 2011

A solo show this week from Derek – and some great music from unexpected sources. From Japanese jazz to Oliver Belz’s German jazzdance outfit the Bahama Social Club – and with another nod to GSH’s great Winter in America album with Brian Jackson – this time the reflective Peace Go With You Brother. There was also time to play the ever-inventive Andrew Hill and an alternate take from CJ tenor favourite Joe Henderson.

  1. Yuko Fujiyama Quartet – Mellow Time
  2. Charlie Palmieri – Mambo Mood
  3. Tyrone Washington – Natural Essence
  4. Bahama Social Club – King’s Wig
  5. Gil Scott-Heron – Peace Go With You Brother
  6. Primo and the Groupe – A Child Runs Free
  7. Dianne Reeves – Yesterdays
  8. Charles Gayle – Faith Evermore
  9. Andrew Hill – Soul Special
  10. Joe Henderson – Teeter Totter (alternate take)
  11. Yusef Lateef – Constellation
  12. Nicola Conte – Song for the Seasons

Two videoclips again this week. The first comes from those Japanese clubbers Primo and the Groupe. Not sure about the cat though…

And how about this? Veteran drummer Roy Haynes on the David Letterman Show just last week. Check out those shades…
