The Olympic FEVER
Love it when it's that time! The Olympics. Man!! All these nationalities. I just googled: 204 countries participating. Some of them I don't even know.
Now it would be dope to play tracks from all of these places, wouldn't it? Can you imagine? Discover that they have bad ass Azerbaijan jazz, just to name something.
I thought I'd start with Puerto Rico, Ghana, Brazil, the UK of course and Cuba, although Mala (who's album 'Mala in Cuba' is coming out in September) is half Jamaican. What a tune. Shout out to Simbad for that as well.
We got more great tracks by Abbey Lincoln, Jose Mangual, Mar, Benny Sings, Domenico, Asaase Ase, Bobby Humphrey. I threw in some new tunes as well. Like Ports tune (love it)
Wish everyone a good week, a lot of medals wherever you're from. France is doing pretty well. China is rocking the gold. I might have to go deep and find some Chinese jazz for the nxt Episodes ;-
Hope you enjoy the show.
