Playlist – 22 March 2012

Cosmic Jazz this week hasd a guest appearance from Michael Carpenter who was one of the pioneers at the very first ICR restricted licence broadcasts in a caravan stationed in an Ipswich park. By day Michael is a silversmith and runs the Spiral Gallery in Debenham Suffolk. His work is made all the more pleasant by a constant supply of music and he has long been a jazz fan. There was an eclectic selection of music, much of it truly cosmic. I learnt that Amancio D’Silva lived in Suffolk; it left me wanting to find out about the raw ‘garage’ sounds of Frank Lowe; I thought again about how much I love subtle  jazz piano (listen to Bugge Wesseltoft); it reminded me how good Eddie Harris was when  at his best and as for Yusef Lateef there is nothing left to say.
