Playlist – 12 January 2012

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…

  1. Gil Scott Heron – Offering
  2. Wadada Leo Smith – The Dhikr of Radiant Hearts Part 1
  3. Mattias Eick – Oslo
  4. Freddie Hubbard – First Light
  5. Dom Um Romao – Dom’s Tune
  6. Marion Brown – Sweet Earth Flying Part 1
  7. Jimmy Heath – Alkebu-Lan (Land of the Blacks)
  8. McCoy Tyner – African  Village
  9. Buster Williams – Batuki
  10. Lloyd McNeill – 2504 Cliffborne Pl
  11. Stone Alliance – I’ll Tell You Tomorrow
  12. Bennie Maupin – Water Torture

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!
