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
It’s been a while since we sourced a proper contemporary jazz mixtape so resident Rob Coley steps up to the plate this week to deliver some of his current favourites on a jazz tip. Over the 60 minutes of music, you’ll hear plenty of piano, a few different moods and of course some of the finest jazz talent plying there trade today. Whether it’s the low key opener by highly rated Canadian trio BadBadNotGood, the sound of Miguel Atwood-Ferguson’s violin on Mark de Clive-Lowe’s latest electronic opus or simply the hip hop swagger of UK newcomers RMD Groove, there’s a little something for everyone here, and the best bit is none of it is rare! So press play and if you like what you hear, remember to support the artists’ endeavours. For it’s that which will keep the scene ticking along. Thanks for listening. TRACKLIST 1.

So here it is… the second edition of ‘The Record Pool’. Just a little late this month as the end of February caught us a bit by surprise and short on time, but let’s finally close out the month here at The Jazz Meet and take a fresh look back at a few of the records that caught our attention over the course of the past 30 days. Unearthing three more albums that run the full gamut of current jazz flavours, we present a lost début recording from saxophonist Nat Birchall, an electronic jazz project from Mark de Clive-Lowe and a digital only project from pianist Eddie Moore and his quartet The Outer Circle. Read below for our thoughts on each recording and peep the samples to get a much fuller picture of each project. ———- ———- For the Hard Bop Enthusiast Nat Birchall – The Sixth Sense Available on Sound Soul
Resident Rob Coley returns to the Jazz Meet turntables for his first mix of 2013, bringing with him a stack of newness on the jazz front to please your ears over 54 minutes of assorted flavours.
Hello we’re back… and with the festive season now ended, we find ourselves in a brand new year and 2012 is all but a fading memory. It was a good year for us on the live front with our move to Floripa resulting in some excellent live sessions (culminating with our 2nd birthday back in December), and we were also very happy to see Jessica finally releasing her ‘Jessica Lauren Four’ album on Freestyle Records to much acclaim. Musically, it was another strong year in the jazz genre, with a plethora of albums, singles and EPs being released over the course of twelve months, with many of the major players also releasing on vinyl (always a good thing to see!). There were so many stand out tracks, it’s difficult to round it down to a definitive ‘Best Of’ so as has become customary on this site, below you’ll find a collection
