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!

We started with a new signature tune – Terri Lynne Carrington’s Jazz Is – and then into a Brazilian flavoured segment before hitting real jazz before ending with a Northern Soul style vibe.
We also featured a real rarity – the only album by Brute Force. No, not a heavy metal band but an Ohio outfit which featured the guitarist Sonny Sharrock. We only had time for one long track but there will be another cut next week.

Thanks too to our callers this week – especially DJ Smoothgroove live from Brighton!
