Firstly a bunch of 11 year olds kick things off with an insanely catchy tune. LeFtO, who's excellent mixes can of course be found on this very site, reworks an old tune to startling effect before we have our first full blown classic. I was aware of Donny Hathaway's later recordings and it didn't really interest me but I recently picked up his first album and just about every song on it is awesome. Second classic comes from saxophonist Gary Bartz and then it's Marvin Gaye. I Need a Dollar is apparently the theme to a big HBO series and it sounds like it was recorded 30 years ago but it's bang up to date and one of my favourite tracks of the year so far. The next two tracks, one old, one new both have a latin flavour, with the Gema track coming from the excellent Brazil: Sambossica Volume 2. A slice of Afrobeat courtesy of Soundway Records before Stevie rounds things off in fine style.
