In the meantime, here’s some more details about the show:
As the autumnal storms sweep in I have comforting tunes to feed the mind, body and spirit. First off, an exclusive interview with The Family Stone (ex - Sly and the Family Stone) where they tell me about their 47 years in the music business and their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. On the leftfield tip I have music from Phillippe Edison, Jazzo & Melodiesinfonie and the legend that is Emanative (Nick Woodmancey) with his epic homage to Sun Ra.
For out and out vocal perfection both Jordan Rakei and Jarrod Lawson feature with their sweet as honey vocals. There are two great tracks from instrumentalists Cory Henry (Snarky Puppy) and Darryl Reeves, plus new kid on the block double bassist Max Luthert (Zara McFarlane, Peter Edwards Trio) who has just dropped a fine LP. There's exclusive new material from the Cecilia Stalin & Khari Simmons who, along with acclaimed producer Daz-I-Kue, have taken a classic and given it an incredible contemporary twist. There's an amazing tune from vocalist Liz Elensky and our Blue Note homage track comes from legendary drummer Art Blakey.
To top it all off we have a quick chat with vocalist Georgia Mancio who discusses her Revoice Festival which takes place in October and features live performances from, amongst others: Carmen Lundy, Claire Martin, Rebecca Parris and Vinx.
Allow me to take you to a musical happy place.
