A second mix this week just in time for the weekend, this one a guest selection from Tobias Kirmayer, founder and record boss of one of Germany’s funkiest little labels, Tramp Records. Here he supplies us with 45 minutes of killer groove music on a jazz tip, and it’s not one to be missed. Plenty of highlights including Dave Newman‘s awesome version of the latin jazz standard, “Tin Tin Deo“, a vocal outing from Mr Eddie Jefferson in the form of his classic “Jeannine” and a funky little soul jazz number from Bobby Timmons (And that’s just the first three songs!).

A little bit about Tobias
