Quiet Brilliance Lost Sessions #4

Between July and December 2019 I delivered 22 shows to Jazzuary FM, only 13 of which got to the archive. Thus, I have dug through the hard drives in order to retrieve the lost sessions. This one was the fourth show, and the first to be lost. The last few at the end of the year were particularly fun as I rounded up both the year and the decade, so keep an eye out for those to be posted.

“Weekly adventures in quietly and brilliantly grooving ark-ival jazz, soul and related sounds and spirits, spanning the planet and recorded history – classics and future classics, dug-for treasures, materials variously recombined and reworked. The quiet (and sometimes not-so quiet), and the brilliant, so-labelled in reference to Ken Quashie’s and Kodwo Eshun’s respective guidebooks for such a sonic journey. The luminaries inevitably feature, meaning names and sounds like Coltrane, Herbie, Stevie, Minnie, Dilla, Dego, but plenty of less-commonly mentioned but just as significant characters, a healthy dose of latin, and African sounds, broken beat for sure, smatterings of gospel, folk, Indian classical, no doubt occasional hip-hop, drum & bass, and new electronic mutations thereof, all wrung through the machinery of electronic music and performed afresh as befitting a present era producing-performing-DJ augmented by the tools of the times.”
