Click the Mixcloud button to hear recent music of Bugge Wesseltoft from Norway, Dayme Arocena from Cuba, Kasper Sankosi from Finland, Dele Sosimi from Nigeria and Domink Wania from Poland. And there’s more from the appropriately titled Kamasi Washington 3CD release The Epic. Washington is one of the latest signings to this Year’s London Jazz Festival in November – and in an intriguing double bill with GoGo Penguin (now signed to Blue Note). I cannot keep Washington off the playlist – but this week’s tune was surprisingly different from his modal/cosmic jazz that’s been previously featured on CJ.
There was also the second installment of what I will make a regular feature of the programme – a Cosmic Jazz Essential tune. These will be tracks we at CJ consider to be outstanding, unmissable and quality jazz. This week the featured track was You’re Not In Love by Carmen Lundy.
