Playlist – 26 January 2012

This week’s Cosmic Jazz featured Sonny Rollins and Charles Lloyd revisiting earlier versions of standards. We also paid another visit to the Nat and Cannonball Adderley’s classic  album The Soul of the Bible – we can’t get enough of this one!

Thumbs up for last week’s programme from Matt in Chapel Hill, North Carolina encouraged us to dip into his last playlist and draw up a rarity from Les McCann. His Layers album from 1972 rarely visits playlists so it was great to see Matt checking out the track Sometimes I Cry on his blogsite I Love Okra. We’ll be posting a link soon.

DJ Smoothgroove called in to drop a couple of tracks and we followed this with some old school Brazilian grooves before ending with more Rollins – another take on the evergreen On Green Dolphin Street.
