Neil is in China but over the coming weeks Derek will have a number of interesting guests committed to the jazz thing who will enlighten and enliven the show.
This week Derek could not resist another dip into the Nat Adderley release Soul of the Bible record, especially as next week Palma will return to play more music in the same vibe. This set the tone for a spiritual feel over the first three tunes. We had another cut from the Norwegian (with a Brighton connection) group SOTU – to find out more about them checkout www.soundoftheunexpected.com. Sonny Rollins was chosen as TV channel BBC4 has a jazz focus this coming weekend, starting on Friday 17 February with two programmes featuring Sonny Rollins. CJ this week ended in party mood in readiness for Cosmic Jazz playing out live – for details see the post below.
