Gerry Lyseight – Phonic FM – 12/5/24

One of those shows that sounds a lot better than it felt doing it live – i was pretty tired from a great El Swing session the night before. Lots of new stuff from the likes of Sandman Project, Louis Cole (with Metropole Orkest & Jules Buckley), a beautiful harp and sax duet from Alina Bzhezhinska & Tony Kofi, home grown Salsa on 7″ with New Regency Orchestra, new Brazilan music from Far Out Recordings and Rubel Ft. Xande De Pilares, The Modern Jazz & Folk Ensemble cover of John Martyn’s Solid Air; a new Jazz Room release: a cover of Grover Washington Jr.s Mister Magic, previously only available in Japan, from Dean Fraser & Robert Dubwise Browne, Radar Station (Toby Mills) and Ben Somers, (both former members of the excellent Ethio-Jazz-Dub outfit Dub Colossus, with new music to commemorate the passing of their dear friend Nick Page who founded D C), Sheila E, long-time Prince sidekick, and solo artist, with her debut Salsa release (pictured); trippy, funky Spiritual Jazz from Kahil El’Zabar’s Ethnic Heritage Ensemble, AfroCuban Jazz from pianist Zaccai Curtis. more from Shay Hazan, also Morgan Harper-Jones, and a little ‘Amampiano in the area’ from Soa Mattrix & Mashudu.

Maximum Bass from bassists Ray Brown, John Clayton & Christian McBride aka SuperBass. New to me but recorded in 2000. Moncho Rivera, Nick Drake (after “Solid Air, of course!), some Alvorada ahead of their Mambista gig in Brockwell Park on 29/6, Agustín Pereyra Lucena re-released, Congolese supergroup Kékélé, NY supergroup Fania All Stars’ and some tuff new Afrobeat from Bukky Leo – mixed by Gilles Peterson – ahead of Bukky’s Mambista gig on Friday May 24th.
