Gilles Peterson has made the leap, after 14 years on Radio 1 to the sublime (and frankly only listenable radio station) BBC 6 Music. He’s now broadcasting on Saturdays between 3 and 6 p.m, before the blisteringly good Craig Charles with his Funk and Soul show. Hear last Saturdays show here.
I heard some stellar tunes but was particularly blown away by Bad Bad Not Good, a Toronto 3 piece jazz outfit who play a mix of originals and covers. And by covers I mean thoroughly interesting takes on well known tracks. Have a listen to their cover of Kanye West and Dwele’s Flashing Lights, then follow along to their website to download their album for free.
As it happens, no one over the age of 21 was involved in the making of this album. Goodness me, I’m feeling insecure.Source: badbadnotgood
