Playlist – 01 March 2012

Palma made it back to Cosmic Jazz again and although the programme was not without its problems (a CD got stuck, it took time to get the vinyl coming through and then the Cosmic Jazz blog froze) he delivered another fantastic mix for the last third of the show. Bill Conti started the mix with Packing Up – a great tune which took us up a gear from Carmen Lundy. It is not often we play 7″ singles on CJ but Quartet Tres Bien provided the opportunity.  Bobby Hutcherson’s subtle vibes work on Montara was spiritual and sublime.

The choice of Ian Carr’s Nucleus was a surprise, but as I had played the Don Rendell/Ian Carr Quintet earlier there was a nice link. You cannot avoid Coltrane with this sort of jazz mix: Tom Scott paid his respects, Gene Russell provided a leftfield version of My Favourite Things and we ended with the man himself. Palma will be back.

  1. Just got the show downloaded and am really enjoying the mix. Some old favourites as well as stuff new to me. Will help to ease the pressure (literally) on a crowded Beijing subway tomorrow morning… Thanks.

  2. Coincidence! Just bought a Dwight Trible CD …
    Interesting tribute to VOA’s Willis Connover who would have been 90 this year. Used to listen to his ‘Sounds Of Jazz’ show on crackly, fading medium wave. First heard Albert Ayler on there! Thought it might have been atmospheric interference at first but – no – it was Ayler …
