After a little break, we're back behind the turntables and this week we've been a wee bit self indulgent, providing just over 50 mins of mainly straight ahead, instrumental jazz for your listening pleasure. Kicking off with two deep and spiritual pieces from two powerful jazz duos, Mr Gregory Porter then steps up and drops a masterful jazz vocal on 'Wisdom', out now on Montema Records. It's then time for some Brit jazz from the new school - the excellent 'Becoming' from one of the UK's current leading lights Nat Birchall, before young jazz quartet Allsop, Stanley, Vosloo and Giles pull out an impeccable cover of the Coltrane classic "Mr Day". Rounding it all off, we dip once again into the Black Jazz archives with "The Highest Pleasure" from Rudolph Johnson, before ending rather abruptly on an absolutely stunning piece of music from The Neil Cowley Trio. Enjoy!
