Playlist – 16 February 2012

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.

  1. The Nat Adderley Sextet – Amani
  2. Heikki Sarmanto – Duke and Trane
  3. Francisco Mora Catlett – Hunter’s Child (Yoruba traditional p.d.)
  4. SOTU- La Meme Chose
  5. Sonny Rollins – Hold ‘Em Joe
  6. Sonny Rollins – The Cutting Edge
  7. Miles Davis – It’s About That Time/The Theme
  8. Hajime Yoshizawa – Arpegio in the Forest
  9. Horace Silver – Safari
  10. Nicola Conte – Nefertiti
  11. Fela Kuti – Question Jam Answer

  1. Nice playlist Derek. BTW just to let you know the Halesworth Jazz weekend happens again last weekend of March/April 1.
    On Fri we have Pangaea and on Saturday jazz/tripbop/dubstep merchants Submotion Orchestra (hey we have to get the kids in somehow). On Sunday, going a little more left field with World Service Project.
    Check out the The Cut Arts Centre website for details/booking. G

  2. Hi Garry and Derek
    Good to hear from you Garry. Glad to know the Jazz Weekend is happening again this year. I’ll still be in Beijing then but hope you get a good crowd for the events. Looks like a good mix.

    Checked out the show on the Beijing subway via Listen Again – made standing for 40 minutes almost bearable… By the way, on the Francisco Mora Catlett cut Yoruba traditional pd just means ‘public domain’. It’s a way of saying that it’s a folk tune so there are no writer credits. It’s a great track – and anyone not familiar with the album should check it out.
