Playing tracks by
Austin Peralta, Gene Harris, Robert mitchell 3io, Dave Holland/Pepe Habichuela, Richard Spaven and more.
So back in December, Mr Richard Spaven dropped his debut 6 track EP on the fledgling Jazz Refreshed label. It was (and still is!) dope and as a result we asked him recently to do a little guest mix. And here it is, just a few of his current and favourite pickings. Mixing up brand new Mark de Clive-Lowe (check http://mashibeats.bandcamp.com) with some Austin Peralta (from Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder imprint) and Britjazz piano maestro Robert Mitchell, Richard blends the present with the future, before heading off into the past with a trio of tracks from Abbey Lincoln, Bobby Hutcherson and McCoy Tyner. Elsewhere, you've got his own stunning collab with José James, the equally beautiful 'Perpetual' from Gideon van Gelder, and an exotic outing from Dave Holland and Pepe Habichuela. Defintely one for the archives.
