Ever since I saw Magnolia I’ve been a fan of Aimee Mann. Not that I know all her songs, not that I listen to her music that regularly, but every time I do I regret having waited that long. Anyway, she’s still going strong with high-quality songwriting about the not-so-pleasant aspects of life. This is her in the KEXP studios in July 2017, enjoy!
Aimee Mann – Full Performance (Live on KEXP)
As heard on an older Gilles Peterson WorldWide-show I listened to on the train this morning.
Cossi Anatz – Aden Arabie
Comment ça va ? Cossi Annatz in french occitan means “How are you doing ?” I’m doing well when I listen to this beautiful free/spiritual jazz album recorded and produced by Michel Marre in the South of France and released on Vendémiaire (Jef Gilson’s label) with a similar style to Francois Tusques Intercommunal. Jazz Afro-occitan is written on the cover and it’s clearly the case when you put the needle on wax you instantly feel the North African, Arabic & Mediterranean influences, that are quite obvious here, especially in the brass & percussions. Some brilliant tracks like the beautiful deep jazz Al Coltrane or the monster spiritual oriental jazz Aden Arabie with great Fender solo.(Source: http://www.diggersdigest.com/shop/product/jazz-afro-occitan-1/)
So our summer holiday in Scotland did not resemble below video (Mark Ronson feat. Kevin Parker of Tame Impala), but it was magnificent nonetheless :-)
Mark Ronson – Summer Breaking / Daffodils ft. Kevin Parker
An epic 15 minutes of jazz from Kamasi Washington’s soul; “Truth”. I’ve been listening to this on repeat since I heard it yesterday evening on Lefto’s radioshow. So beautiful & moving, so rooted in the past and yet so fresh and timeless!
