Playlist – 06 January 2012

Welcome to another year with Cosmic Jazz! We played more tracks from 2011 releases we couldn’t include in our Best of… show together with music from some of the great jazz artists we lost late in 2011 – Paul Motian, Sam Rivers, Ralph McDonald and Gordon Beck. Palma – our guest before Christmas – has already left his mark on the show: Derek played Obeah from the  Cannonball Adderley vinyl  double album Soul of the Bible (also available as a download) and Trust Us to Find the Way from vocalist Andy Bey.

  1. Thundercat – Golden Boy
  2. Tubby Hayes – Milestones
  3. Cannonball Adderley – Obeah
  4. George Benson – Nature Boy
  5. Ebo Taylor – What is Life
  6. Jeremy Pelt – Pulse
  7. Andy Bey – Trust Us to Find The Way
  8. Sam Rivers – Fuchsia Swing Song
  9. Bobby Hutcherson – Jasper
  10. Paul Motian – Ch’i Energy
  11. Baden Powell with Jimmy Pratt – Coisa No.1
  12. Phillip Cohran and the Artistic Heritage Ensemble – The Minstrel
  13. Dub Colossus – Addis Through the Looking Glass
  14. Amancio D’Silva – Ganges

This week’s videoclip features – of course – the later, great Sam Rivers. Here he is taking control as guest with the James ‘Blood’ Ulmer Quartet in a live European concert sometime in the 1980s I’d guess. Listen out for the unaccompanied solo around the 03:00 minute mark:
