Playlist – 2nd October 2008

Two themes this week – big toned tenor sax sounds and a couple of tributes to John Coltrane, including the awesome Alberto Favero track. The music ranged from Clifford Brown with Max Roach from 1954 (sounding very good!), some free jazz from Henri Texier and the funky Defunkt. Our jazzy world music cuts tonight were from the wonderful Mulatu Astatque and Dee Dee Bridgewater’s Children Go Round from her Red Earth album.

And we pay homage to another great show from Smoothgroove preceding Cosmic Jazz – tune in to Offworld if you can!

It’s a welcome return for Pete from Hertfordshire – one of our most regular listeners and a real expert on all kinds of music. For his second visit to the ICR studios, Pete brought the usual eclectic mix of music, beginning with an unexpected choice – John McLaughlin at his most fiery for the track Marbles. It seemed appropriate to close the show with a recent big band reworking of a classic Mahavishnu Orchestra tune Miles Beyond.

In between we had jazz, New Orleans funk, rap and reggae. We had a great time in the studio and we hope you enjoyed the show as much as we did. Thanks again tonight to all our callers and emailers – as always we welcome your support – keep it coming!
