Playlist – 27 December 2012

This week’s programme was the second of our Best of 2012. There were plenty of great new releases squeezed into our 90 minute slot but we also managed a few re-releases with Sun Ra and Spider’s Web, a rarity from the BGP Jazz Funk compilation. Spider’s Webb was the brainchild of drummer Spider Webb and his wife Carol Kaye, the renowned bass guitar session player, famed for her work with Phil Spector, David Axelrod and others.

Neil played a flying visit at the start of the show with a mix of five tracks from new albums and Derek continued with more of the music we enjoyed over the year. For more on what we liked this year, check out our upcoming feature – watch this space.

One thought on “Playlist – 27 December 2012”

  1. Sad news about Fontella Bass passing away at 71. How about a record at some point by she and her husband Lester Bowie at some point ? Art Ensemble of Chicago, perhaps ?
