One thought on “Playlist – 11 April 2013”

  1. This show was awesome. I’ve commented it via Twitter – but some more thoughts here: I absolutely loved the whole thing – you hit a deep jazz seam immediately and continued throughout the show. You bravely followed the Urbaniak with a snatch of Coltrane and then into Andrew Hill – it really worked! I didn’t know this Andrew Hill track and I went and put the CD on my wants list immediately -check it out if you can. It was a fantastic choice, mixing Hill’s souljazz tendencies with his asymmetric approach to the piano in one great track. Gorgeous trumpet solo from Ron Horton and then followed by Halsall’s equally restrained and deep music. The Maciej Fortuna track was new to me too and the Mark de Clive Lowe a brilliant choice – updating the big band genre for a hiphop audience. I’m listening it here in Beijing but I wish I’d got the Sons of Kemet to go with it on the iPhone – wow! And then Purim’s fantastic version of Shorter’s Speak No Evil. Great solos too. I didn’t know this track either – a great choice and a real return to jazz for her I think. I could write about each track you selected but, Palmer, – you just made this selection really work.

    And then the mix – well, it just flowed magically. The Della Reece was a discovery for me too: I’ve heard lots of versions of this song, but this one is a bit special isn’t it?! I added that album to my wants list as well…The delights just kept on coming with Sergio Mendes, George Benson, Robert Lowe and more. Alex – that was one great selection.

    If there was ever an indication that CJ can cut it with the best of jazz on radio/internet then this show was it. Palmer’s accidental nod to Patrick Forge may have been a mistake but the DJing, presenting and music played were certainly the equal of anything that he has done. You delivered guys – thanks again.
