Better late than never, here lies the second part of our 2010 roundup. Focused around another batch of favourite tracks from last year, you’ll find contemporary, traditional, modern (and in some cases quite stunning) jazz gems for your listening pleasure. We ease in with the triple threat of Dave Douglas, Emanative and Phronesis before upping the tempo with two compositions from British quartet Killer Shrimp and pianist Carl Winther. A live performance from Brazilian legend Arthur Verocai, recorded as part of the 2009 Timeless Concert Series and released on wax by Mochilla in 2010, kicks off the second half of the mix before Robert Aaron, Gideon van Gelder and finally Richard Spaven bring forth their own unique brands of jazz and leave us looking to what lies ahead in 2011. Thanks for listening. TRACKLIST Dave Douglas & Keystone – Creature (Greenleaf Music) | BUY Emanative – Find You (featuring Matthew
The first Jazz Meet cloudcast of 2011 compiles a few of our favourite releases from the past year. It’s not conclusive, as you’ll notice a fair few of the year’s higher profile artists missing. Hopefully we can rectify that with a second cloudcast later this month. Here, we focus on the more contemporary side of things, kicking off with Ukranian jazz outfit Dudko Quintet, and follow with new material from The Dave Holland Octet and The Cookers (Billy Harper, Eddie Henderson, Cecil McBee et al). A collaborative effort from Talib Kibwe, Bobby Few, Sangoma Everett and Louis Petrucciani eases us down a notch, before James Tatum and The Lloyd Miller Trio (both released/reissued on Jazzman Records last year) swing us into spiritual territory. Gregory Porter provides a killer bit of vocal jazz while Porter Records supply a gorgeous (recently reissued) track from Finnish maestro Eero Koivistoinen. Gondwana’s Nat Birchall and Japan’s
Second mix of the week and this time we’ve got our good friend Jarred Rice from All of the Above supplying the tunes to warm your soul on this festive Saturday. Fresh from a trip back from the land of the Rising Sun, Jarred pulls together a little mix of some of his recent finds on a jazz tip, including some killer rare Japanese business. Jarred will be DJing with Nik Weston and Rob Coley this Sunday at the very first Jazz Meet at Last Days of Decadence in Shoreditch. Bring your snow shoes, it’s looking like it’s gonna be a deep one on both counts. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy this little offering.

So we’re back. New name, new Mixcloud, same old jazzual treats. Kicking off this new series of mixes is Mr Nik Weston of Mukatsuku Records fame and Jazz Meet resident, dipping deep into his vinyl vaults for a mixed bag of jazz, with just a hint of Latin and Brazilian goodness dropped in for good measure. Featuring tracks from Sonny Criss, Hampton Hawes, Kenny Clarke and Neos amongst others, this is a lusciously laidback and seriously funky session. You just need to check the horns on the Hawes track to know what to expect. Pure badness. We hope you enjoy. TRACKLIST 1. Sonny Criss – I Thought About You 2. Catalyst – Ain’t It The Truth 3. Hampton Hawes – Web 4. Jamey Aebersold – 6/8 Modal Blues 5. The Overton Berry Ensemble – Jesus Christ Superstar Medley 6. Kenny Clarke – Big Bang 7. Eric Kloss – Celebration 8.
