Playlist – 08 December 2011

Neil was back from Beijing and tonight’s Cosmic Jazz featured new music from Italian trumpeter Enrico Rava, a bizarre collaboration between UK drummer Seb Rochford and theremin player Pamelia Kurstin, the lyricism of Keith Jarret’s new solo piano release and a truly inspiring 1963 broadcast from Stuttgart of John Coltrane’s classic quartet at their peak.

We are sad to hear that Gilles Peterson will be leaving BBC R1 in April next year as a result of scheduling changes. We hope that his brand of musical discovery finds a new radio home and that Gilles continues to find the perfect beat.

  1. Loved the insightful video clip and am reminiscing at work to the sound of GP on BBC Radio London. Happy days! Jazz fm should be chasing him now they’re national.

  2. Thanks Pete – happy memories of taping GP’s Vibrazone too… Still continues to inform and blaze a trail. I’d say GP is more eclectic than ever now and – like the best music makers and informers – still has the power to surprise.
