Neil Cowley does my favourite Sesame Street tune

I had the most delightful cycle to work this morning listening to this. Top album. Check out number 9 for some jazzed up childhood memories.

Great Boiler Room session I just stumbled upon. This was one of the first tunes I ever played on stage back in my super-lame pony-tailed teenage Acid Jazz days. Ah, the memories!

Sonzeira – The Mystery of Man – 4 Hero Remix

It’s been years since I heard and 4 Hero. Took me back to being 15 again. Lovely stuff here, and I’m double happy it’s the remix for one of my favourite singers of the moment, Mart’nalia. Discovered her through my mate Rodrigo Lampreia a few years ago in Rio and fell in love with her voice and her vibe. Really hope it gets her some international profile. She deserves it.

Cool Horse

There is no longer any need to answer in the affirmative. Simply forward this link, and let them hear it from the horse’s mouth (and saxophone)

There are just too many excellent things happening all at once here for me to get my head around. I’ve been working with Gilles Peterson, and Rob Galliano, and a whole load of my Brazilian Musical heroes, and my mate Ben , and we’ve made a feature length documentary, and it’s on in the flipping cinema.

Chassol – Indiamore

Screen Shot 2014-06-24 at 08.20.35

So we had our full length film about Gilles Peterson’s Sonzeira Project played at the Meltdown Festival last week, and just when I thought I was clever, on came Chassol to do his bit.

I have never received such a lesson in humility. He totally blew my mind. So many things I am interested in, musically, linguistically, filmically, culturally, all rolled into one perfect performance onstage, in front of a bespoke piece of film which both accompanied and was part of the music. It’s amazing. I went straight back home and bought it, and listening to it this morning before I go to work, it has lost none of its power.

Go and buy it at once. The video version. Or see him live if you can. I can’t recommend him any higher. It’s close to perfection.

Hamilton Fofão – Meu Samba

Last time I went to Rio my Mate Fofão sang a song for me and Benjamin Holman on the Selarón Steps in Lapa. He’s pretty much samba royalty. Look out for that name, it’ll go far. Big love to Jack Williams for the grade.

Criolo – Well worth a watch

Really enjoyed this concert. I never understand it when people moan about artists doing a show that’s just like the album. I’m always a bit annoyed when it’s not. Criolo nailed it at the Circo Voador.
