Following last year’s pre-Christmas sojourn into jazz, our friend Tom Greig returns with another fantastically festive themed mixtape of beautifully composed deepness. Starting off with his customary ‘slowed down’ version of Jessica Lauren’s ‘White Mountain’, Tom presents 80 minutes of spiritually charged music that would certainly suit an alternative midnight mass. There’s music from Jazz Meet favourites Michael Garrick, Jef Gilson, Norman Connors, Ramsey Lewis and Herbie Hancock to name but a few, while he delves a little deeper to pull out outstanding pieces from Herman Gehlen, Erich Heinschuster Sextet and Father Herrera and the Trio ESP. Filled to the brim with bright musical moments, the odd religious message and plenty of soothing sounds, we hope you enjoy this final regular mixtape of 2013 and thank you for your continued support throughout 2013 and beyond. We hope you have a great Christmas and New Year. TRACKLIST Jessica Lauren Four – White Mountain
A little extra treat this week as we present a live set from special guest selector Tom Greig, recorded live this past Sunday at Floripa. Tom dropped an energetic mix of styles, including the classic Bobby Hutcherson Latin jazz banger ‘La Malanga’, Brian Auger’s ‘Happiness is Just Around the Bend’, a little Marc Moulin and some blues tinged goodness from Rahsaan Roland Kirk. We also got a taste of George Duke from his seldom seen ‘The Inner Source’ in the form of the tasty ‘My Soul’ and some newness from Thundercat, as well as a few other bits we still need to find. Give it a listen above and if you’d like us to try to record a few more live sets in the future, give us a shout. You can also grab the last set of the same evening from Jazz Meet resident Rob Coley here: Live at The Jazz Meet 18/08/2013.
This week we’re pleased to welcome back our friend Tom Greig to The Jazz Meet spotlight. Having dazzled us before with a beautiful deep jazz mix (#84), he slips right back into top gear to bring us a follow up to the much loved ‘Disco e Cultura’ mixtape (#99) he completed for us not so long ago. Much like the first, in this second edition you can expect another exquisite selection of Brazilian jazz, Samba, MPB and a few modern reworks, all stitched together nicely with a perfectly sunny vibe. Things kick off with a little Anamaria and Mauricio and delving deep into the 90 minutes you’ll also hear music from the Zimbo Trio, Gal Costa, MPB4, Marcos Valle and even a little Don Cherry. If there’s one thing we’ve learnt from Tom it’s that he’s got an enviable array of nice records and for that reason we’ve also invited him along
Another brilliant Brazilian inspired mixtape this week, this time from friend of The Jazz Meet, Tom Greig. Fresh from his well received deep jazz mix which dropped just before Christmas, Tom brings us another selection suited for warmer climes with 80 minutes of divine music from the home of Samba. A product of 18 months or so of digging from Brazilian gems, Tom eases us in with a little Cesar Mariano & CIA before taking us on a wild ride through the vaults of MPB and beyond, including a few modern interpretations from contemporary producers along the way. There’s plenty of goodness (and rareness) in among the 30 or so tunes and it’s more than a pleasant listen to round off your working week. We hope you enjoy the mix and if you do, please feel free to drop Tom a little feedback in the comment fields below or over on
