Playing tracks by
Gil Scott-Heron and Jamie xx, The Five Corners Quintet, Gregory Porter, Matthew Halsall, Nostalgia 77 and more.
Just Jazz is a pure selection of jazz artists that I specially like. For this cloudcast, I have decided to include the most recent jazz tracks in my record collection. It include two tracks of the latest Matthew Halsall's album "On the Go" out on www.gondwanarecords.com. Please enjoy the endless melodies provided by Richard Spaven, Eric Legnini, Erik Truffaz, Hidden Orchestra and Native. Enjoy !
One of my motivation for doing this mix was to give an heads-up to www.montrealjazzfest.com (twitter: #JazzMtl @MtlJazzFestival) booking team who doesn't seem to have any interests in booking japanese jazz artists (e.g., SOIL & "PIMP", Quasimode, etc.) or takes to much time to book the younger jazz generation (e.g., Matthew Halsall and Christian Scott). As an example, José James as never been invited to promote is first album "The dreamer" in 2008. Where is the jazz spirit ?
