This show was 5th in the global nu jazz chart, 10th in the global lounge chillout downtempo chart and 16th in the global lounge chart.
The idea behind The Artist Choice Series is not to make a show of an musician’s biggest songs, but to have the artist themselves pick the songs that mean the most to them.
For a first set, I wanted to ask Mike Murray. I became aware of his music in 2016 around the release of his album Summer. The first time he appeared in a set of mine was when Lemon Pepper opened Urban Daydreams - Cruise Control. Since then he has popped up often in my shows. I love the vibe his music gives me, the keyboards and soundscapes creating a smooth atmosphere every time I listen.
This show is "his" creation; Mike chose for me 23 tracks that mean a little extra to him and I took it from there.
Thank you so much Mike for not only saying yes and for being the first of what I hope can be an interesting series, but for entrusting your favorites with me. It was a wonderful pleasure putting this together with you and I hope you like it.
