We’re back and this time around it’s Jazz Meet resident Rob Coley stepping up to deliver another mellow selection of contemporary finds. Things begin with a freshly reissued gem from Henri-Pierre Noël, out now via the Wah Wah 45s imprint, before we head into spiritual territory via Jazzman Records with a little Tumi Mogorosi goodness. California bassist Aneesa Strings provides the next tune (go seek the album, it’s lush!) before our old friend Richard Spaven drops in with some fresh future flavours. Collocutor give us a little something forthcoming from On The Corner records and there’s further spiritually charged music from everyone’s favourite Italian Jazzman Nicola Conte. We wrap things up with the irrepressible Mr Ginger Baker, a long-lost library piece from Sammy Burdso and some smooth BAM from Nicholas Payton. We hope you enjoy this little mixtape and thank you as ever for your continued support! TRACKLIST 1. Henri-Pierre
We always like to keep our ear to the ground for new jazz releases here at The Jazz Meet. It’s certainly not always been about the more obscure or well-worn classics that more often cross our paths, and late last year our interest was piqued with the arrival of a fresh UK jazz project newly signed to the London record imprint Here and Now Recordings.

Teaming up with a crack ensemble of
We continue the Brazilian theme this week as Jazz Meet resident Nik Weston of MUKATSUKU fame digs deep into his record collection to pull out a selection of classics from the Latin American country just in time for your weekends. Kicking things off with the Brazilian standard ‘Cravo E Canelo’ by MPB4, we ease into the atmospheric ‘Ala Boca Menino’ by Joao Donato before Gilberto Gil’s version of ‘Roda’ kicks in. Music from Jaime Nair, Marcos Valle, Os Incrives, Elza Soares and Milton Banana Trio (amongst others) all follow before Nik brings things to a rousing close with Claudette Soares’ rousing ‘Os Grillos’. As ever we hope you enjoy this little mix and thank you for listening. TRACKLIST 1. MPB4 – Cravo E Canela 2. Joao Donato – Ala Boca Menino 3. Gilberto Gil – Roda 4. Jaime Nair – Sob o Mar 5.
