12 April 2017: old and new favourites

This week’s Cosmic Jazz was the last pre-recorded show from Derek
before his return from the Caribbean island of Grenada. It featured favourites old and new – including two Norwich-based artists, Mammal Hands and pianist Kit Downes. Cal Massey’s often recorded Assunta was here performed by flautist Krzystof Popek, in a group including US jazz stalwarts Kirk Lightsey, David Friesen and John Betsch. Compare with trumpeter Freddie Hubbard’s version of the tune from his Blue Note album Here To Stay.

The always excellent Trish Clowes was featured in a track from her acclaimed album Pocket Compass, and the show ended with two Far Out label favourites that we often return to at CJ – the excellent track Montag’s Dream from the Brazilian Otis Trio and fellow countryman Marcos Valle’s perennial Freio Aerodynamico from his comeback album Nova Bossa Nova.
