Roots of Nu Jazz | Part 2 | Welcome to another journey through a wide spectrum of styles, from soul/jazz, modal and funk to african, latin and soul music. My selection focuses on jazz releases of the early 1970s. All tracks were recorded between 1967 and 1977 and mainly issued on small lables like Black Jazz, Tribe, Jamal, Strakers. Peter Herbolzheimer’s BLUES EN LATIN recorded 1977 by Sabu Martinez in Sweden was released 2009 by Mellotronen Records. One track comes from the famous Miles Davis Quintet (1965-1968) (Columbia Records). Enjoy Willie Hutch’s interpretation of STORMY WEATHER, released on his album CONCERT IN BLUES (Motown Records). The last track features Woody Shaw with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers (Prestige Records). Part 1 was broadcasted in this show on Sunday, June 7, 2015.
