About the show
Playing tracks by
Havana Cultura Band, Takashi Makatsuka, Madlib, Harris/Moran/Osby/Shim, Soil & "Pimp" Sessions and more.
I'm very excited about tonight show. I'm calling it Blue Note Covers.... it's packed full of classic Blue Note tracks performed by cutting edge new jazz artists,featuring the likes of Soil & Pimp Session, Madlib, Sunaga T Experience and (no surprise) Jose James
All through my childhood, teenage years and later life, I've love and listened to Blue Note Records. My parents raised me on a diet of Herbie Hancock, Horace Silver and Hank Mobley.
Sonny Clark's 1958 Blue Note album Cool Struttin, like many Blue Note albums, had an iconic black and white shot of a woman in a black pencil skirt and a pair of black silettos. This for me epitomised the cool late 5o's Blue Noe era. This show for me epitomises Hedonist Jazz..... I hope you enjoy it
