All I’ve been listening to this week is jazz and Steve Mason, which will become very apparent when you play this list. I discovered a great album by Matthew Halsall and the Gondwana Orchestra which is pretty straight on the first disc, but moves into some wonderful astral jazz on the second with a tribute to one of my all time favourites Alice Coltrane, which I’ve included here. Other notables are the one and only Richie Havens, Sun Ra, Ali Farka Toure and a wicked Welsh band called Yucatan who sound a bit like Sigur Ros.
