As a little predecessor to this Sunday’s Jazz Meet at Floripa, our guest selector for the day, DJ and producer Kay Suzuki dropped in this little taster of a mix to get us in the mood. A 30 minute selection of some of Kay’s current faves on a jazzy tip, it runs the gamut from the Brazilian and percussive rhythms of Paulinho da Costa and Zaka Percussion right through to the classic soul and funk of Fred Wesley and Don Blackman. It’s all neatly tied up by the appearance of two Balearic chuggers in the form of Wally Badarou and Herb Alpert. We hope you enjoy this little session and thanks for listening! TRACKLIST Paulinho da Costa – Berimbau Variations (Pablo) Codek – Tam Tam (West African Music) Fred Wesley And The J.B.’s – Same Beat (Part 1) (Polydor) Don Blackman – Heart Desire (BMG) Zaka Percussion – Hawaii (Le Chant Du
The third recording from our recent Macmillan Cancer Support fundraiser this past Sunday is selected by the DJs’ DJ and cratedigger extraordinaire Jake Holloway, who dug deep to bring us this heavy selection of Latin funk, jazz and Brazilian music.

Featuring music from Henri Pierre Noel, Marquez, Ronald Mesquita, Ed Maciel and Ocho to name but a few, this is one seriously choice selection.

A little something for the weekend.. Aside from their spots here at the Jazz Meet Live, members of the Jazz Meet band can often be seen plying their trade elsewhere around London as working musicians. This Sunday is just one of those occasions as guitarist Max O’Donnell has put together a little evening event at The Stag in Hampstead. Entitled The Beat Root Groove, Max will be accompanied on stage by Andy Kremer (Bass), John Sam (Drums) and special guest Jessica Lauren on keys for a night of righteous funk, roots and blues all night long! Expect to hear music of The Meters, James Brown, Ray Charles and much more! There’s no cover charge and the session kicks off at 7pm. We also hear that The Stag cooks a mean roast too! Sounds like a plan. Sunday 27th March FREE ENTRY from 7.00pm The Beat Root Groove @ The Stag Hampstead
