Playing tracks by

Have we got a treat for you this week. A while back resident Nik Weston secured this little mix from the http://www.mixcloud.com/diggersdigest/ crew and after a little hold up, it's now time to unleash it. Selected and mixed by Mr. Ash, who was also responsible for compiling a selection of French jazz styles for the recent Freedom Jazz France compilation released on the Parisian record label, Heavenly Sweetness earlier this year, here he digs further still to bring us another ten pieces of strictly Gallic goodness. With names like Jef Gilson, Christian Vander, Guy Lafitte, Cossi Anatz and Randy Weston's African Rhythms amongst the artists named on the tracklist, you can get a feel for the sounds involved, this isn't your standard fare. Deep, modal, spiritual and free jazz is the order of the day, and they all hold that certain bit of class that we've come to expect from our French cousins. We hope you enjoy the mix. Thanks for listening.
