Two of my favorite musicians: Emily King and José James signing ‘Come to my door’
Shyheim - One’s 4 da money
Great mix by @edmotta. Super smooth, perfect for the summer!

Straight out of LES. Emily King’s Distance.
Taken from Gilles Peterson’s new album project Sonzeira, ‘Brasil Pandeiro’ is a rework of the original 1940s track written by Assis Valente; on vocals it features Emanuelle Araύjo, who you may have heard on the amazing rendition of ‘Southern Freeez’ which was released as a limited edition 7” for Record Store Day. Also featuring is one of the most prolific musicians on the Brazilian samba scene, Arlindo Cruz, on the Cavaquinho [small guitar].
The track is instantly available as a download when pre-ordering the album on iTunes. It is also available to purchase as a single download from the album.

From Willie Nelson’s 1969 album ‘Good times’
RIP Frankie Knuckles. This is one of his last classics - a great remix of ‘Blind’ by Hercules & Love Affair
Great @boilerroomtv mix by the one and only @lefto. Eclectic as always.
Jazz nugget - Oblique by Bobby Hutcherson (Herbie Hancock on piano, Joe Chambers on drums) from 1967. #tbt
German documentary from 1965 (!) about Jimmy Smith touring Germany with appearances by Dizzy Gillespie and James Moody. Incredible.
Don’t worry about the German translation since you’ll hear the artists talking, traveling, rehearsing, and playing in concert.
Have a great wkd! This will get you half way there. Cerrone’s ‘Hooked on you’ (Kon Remix)
Sconsolato off Mark Murphy’s 1970 album Midnight Mood. Classic.
