About the show
Playing tracks by
Roller Trio , Neil Cowley Trio, Timo Lassy, Brad Mehldau Trio, Portico Quartet and more.
On the very first day of a new year, we present out first mixtape of 2013 and the second half of our 2012 round-up. Arriving just in time to ease those NYE hangovers, we begin in that manner with a little mellow paced music from Matthew Halsall, The Shaolin Afronauts and the Neil Cowley Trio. Vijay Iyer follows with an exquisite Flying Lotus remake before The Sure Co. and Brad Mehldau Trio provide further piano lead goodness. There's a particular British feel to this second selection with further new music from Allsop, Vosloo, Stanley, Giles, last year's Mercury nominated Roller Trio, Phronesis, Portico Quintet and Nat Birchall, who all bring their distinctive blends of jazz to the fore. Not forgetting of course, our very own Jessica Lauren, who released her well received and equally amazing 'Jessica Lauren Four' album last year. Here we feature 'White Mountain' and effortlessly close proceedings with a little Robert Glasper. We thank you for listening and wish you a Happy New Year!
