Tonight’s CJ featured a mix of classic rare groove 70s jazz – Jimmy Heath, Stone Alliance, Buster Williams and more. But we began with Gil Scott Heron and a musical invocation…
- Gil Scott Heron – Offering
- Wadada Leo Smith – The Dhikr of Radiant Hearts Part 1
- Mattias Eick – Oslo
- Freddie Hubbard – First Light
- Dom Um Romao – Dom’s Tune
- Marion Brown – Sweet Earth Flying Part 1

- McCoy Tyner – African Village

- Lloyd McNeill – 2504 Cliffborne Pl

We’re obsessed by stone classic 70s conscious jazz grooves at the moment and so we threw as many as we could into the show. There are so many good examples of the genre, but we loved Jimmy Heath and Buster Williams and we shall be searching out more for you in future shows.
Video this week comes from the Heath Brothers with a live take (New Jersey 2009) on Blue Mitchell’s Fungi Mama. Enjoy!
