Playlist – 07 March 2013

Derek is getting used to solo shows again…This week’s CJ featured more Polish and Scandinavian music (thanks again to Steve’s Jazz Sounds – see link right) along with music from the always unpredictable Sun Ra, pianist Jason Moran and forgotten 1970s spiritual jazz from The Awakening, as featured on the wonderful Black Jazz label – now the subject of a second collection of tracks curated by Gilles Peterson. The Awakening recorded two albums for Black Jazz in the 1970s – Hear, Sense and Feel (1972) and  Mirage (1973) – the latter featuring the track The Ultimate Frontier which kicked off tonight’s show.
