We’re back and kick off a new round of sounds with a great guest mix from one of our favourite DJs/selectors Mr Phil Levene. Not only is Phil one of the nicest blokes you’ll ever meet, he also runs the Eclectic Jazz website and radio show where he airs an assortment of jazz both old and new. Here he dips once again into his enviable crates to bring us a tip-top selection of tracks from across the musical spectrum. Things start sprightly a little Jaco Pastorius before we revisit some modern-day goodness from Fila Brazilia, Beatless and Nu Tropic. For those that dig the older stuff, there’s also plenty classic material with Pat Martino, Herbie Hancock, Charlie Palmieri and Maynard Ferguson all representing before Phil rounds things off with a little future fusion from IG Culture’s New Sector Movements. If you like what you hear, you’ll be happy to know
With the departure of our friend and colleague Jarred Rice to Canadian shores , it left a space for another DJ to step into the Jazz meet arena. Introducing our new resident DJ Lukas Kuhn. A regular at The Jazz Meet over the past couple of years and with extensive experience of DJing his own parties in London, we are happy to welcome Lukas to the team and here he provides us with his first Jazz Meet mix featuring an awesome selection of tasty jazz morsels from the former Czechoslovakian state. On this mix, Lukas takes us on a rip-roaring ride through his jazz crates taking in everything from funky jazz fusion and frenetic big band jazz, to a little Latin flavoured hard bop and jazz funk. We hope you enjoy this little playlist and thank you for listening. If it brightens up your day, drop Lukas a comment on our Mixcloud page!
