Jumping The Gap Show 13 June 2012
The Sydney Film Festival is over for another year. Besides the terrific docos we caught (from the beautiful 'Searching For Sugarman' about Detroit's soulman Rodriguez, the revealing 'Under African Skies' about Paul Simon's Graceland LP to a great Woody Allen doco) we also laughed a lot at Daniel Martinico's 'OK, Good' screening as part of the Festival's Freak Me Out strain. As this show went to air, the festival was in full swing, so a great opportunity to air tunes from another yet-to-be-released treasure trove on the Soul Jazz label called 'TV Sound & Image: British Television, Film & Library Composers 1955-78'. Of course we chose just a handful - but the funkiest - from this amazing 36 track collection, along with our own selection of jazz, funk & soul grooves spanning a swinging Nancy Wilson & the divinely rapping femmocat Wanda Robinson, to Dizzy Gillespie. Plus we aired newies from Canadian Jesse Futerman & hip hopper Jeremiah Jae. xx Paris
