This week we’re blessed with a guest mix from the Parisian Jazz collective, Jazz Attitudes. Over the past few years, Psycut (Edit / Bab Musique), KoKo (Edit / Boull A One Crew) and Switch “Groov” Exp (Bab Musique) have organised some damn fine parties promoting dancefloor jazz culture. So when they contacted us earlier this month, it seemed only right that we show them a little love right here, particularly as Jazz Meet resident Nik Weston will be headlining their next party on Thursday 10 November at Le Java in the 10eme Arrondissement. Peep the flyers below. Here the three DJ/promoters bring us a mix in three parts. Each focuses on tracks that feature a specific instrument only (Sax, guitar and piano respectively), and together the boys produce a delicious blend of jazz beats and treats. There’s lots of goodness to be had across the full 60 minutes, but the

We’re back after a little break, with a short, sharp, sizzling mix of rare jazz business from Jazz Meet resident Jarred Rice. Kicking off with the classic ‘Dream Weaver’ from The Charles Lloyd Quartet, Jarred digs out two Italian jazz nuggets from Eraldo Volonté and the Guido Manusardi Trio, before hitting us up with a Jazz Meet favourite and the utterly outstanding ‘Dead Sea Scrolls’ from Raphael, recorded in Brussels in 1972. Rounding things off we have a live outing from another American jazz pianist, Junior Mance and a scintillating performance of ‘Jumpin’ The Blues’ taken from his “Live at Sweet Basil” on the Japanese ‘Flying Disk’ imprint. Jarred will be lining up this coming Sunday alongside Andrew Sidford and The Jazz Meet Band at The Shoreditch, London E1 for another all day live jazz and DJ session. Free entry and delectable cocktails to round off your weekend in style.

And we continue… It’s another Live at The Jazz Meet mix, this week from Mr Des Morgan of Yam Who? fame, who we welcomed onto The Shoreditch decks a little over a week ago and he blessed us with some seriously nice selections. Here we serve up the second of two sets for your listening perusal. Any mix that starts with Kimiko Kasai’s “Sunlight” and contains at least one Chaka Khan song has us sold at the off, but dig a little deeper and there’s more goodness to be had. For instance, when was the last time you heard Paul Jackson’s “Eight Ways of Love Part 2”? Or Quarteto em Cy’s “Salve O Verde”? Not to mention a 15 minute Latin section we had trouble id-ing all the tracks for (Full tracklist now below). The Crusaders, The Detroit Experiment, The Backroom Bandits, and Kenny Dorham all make unlikely but extremely
