New week, new jazz mix. This week, Jazz Meet resident Rob Coley steps up to deliver a pensive selection of deep instrumental jazz. Beginning with ‘Time Piece 1’ from The Greg Foat Group (taken from the debut LP ‘Dark is the Sun’ out on Jazzman Records next month), Julian ‘Cannonball’ Adderley (re-edited here by Rise on ‘Shine a Light’) then announces the arrival of Hannibal and the Sunrise Orchestra and their own imitable take on Errol Garner‘s ‘Misty’. Brand new music from Sean Khan and Matthew Halsall follows, before we hit the frenzied drum and sax interplay of the epically percussive ‘De I Comahlee Ah’ from Jackie McLean and Michael Carvin. Detroit legend Phil Ranelin, alongside Henry Franklin and Big Black, weighs in with some ‘Perseverance’ before Gil Scott-Heron, Brian Jackson and a Kenny Drew trio date close us out.
You can catch Rob DJing alongside Nik Weston and Kola Abidogun and of course the live band, this coming Sunday for a special Bank Holiday Jazz Meet Live session at The Shoreditch E1. Another full day of live jazz, drinks and dancing should ensue.
