Derek and Neil in the studio tonight with a special focus on piano trio music.

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.
