Gerry Lyseight – All Kinds Of Everything – Totally Wired Radio – 12/10/22

Kicking off with the dub of the new single from the mighty Soothsayers ahead of the release of the new album on Wah Wah 45 alongside Victor Rice, ‘Soothsayers Meets Victor Rice & Friends’.

Closely followed by some classic Cymande, ‘Zion I’, written by, and featuring, Michael “Bammi” Rose, as he is now, Mike Rose as he was known then. Bammi is playing my Mambista session on October 22 (tix here), followed by Soothsayers on November 25th. 

Old and new from South Africa with some awesome Amapiano and funky SA jazz from the early 70s.

The Eddie Montalvo comes from a great album i picked up recently in Spanish Harlem. Eddie played with Hector Lavoe as well as the Fania All Stars and the tune I played is a tribute to another star from the golden era, Ruben Blades.

Phil Seaman was/is considered Europe’s best ever jazz drummer and Peter Dawn has just self-published a 700-page labour of love into the life and times of the troubled player “Phil Seamen Percussion Genius”. I played a version of Bobby Timmons’s classic, Moanin’, featuring Phil as an integral part of the Joe Harriott Quintet.

DOMi & JD Beck are not everyone’s cup of meat but I’m loving their debut on Blue Note and looking forward to seeing their UK debut at a sold-out Jazz Cafe on November 15th.

Over the last few weeks we lost two giants of jazz representing very different facets of the genre: Ramsey Lewis with his Mod and Soul Jazz and Pharoah Sanders from the more Spiritual and Roots side of things. May they both RIP. 

Finally got my hands on The Reflex Revision of Peg by Steely Dan. Good job. 

Loads more great music featured.
