….Between July and December 2019 I delivered 22 shows to Jazzuary FM, 13 of which got to the archive. Thus, I’m posting the 9 lost sessions. This was the #21st Quiet Brilliance show to “air”…
“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, and 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.”
