1. Gilles Peterson – “Strata East Mix, Part 2” (AUDIO).

    Gilles Peterson drops Part 2 of his 3-hour mix exploring the catalog of legendary ’70s independent/artist-owned-and-operated jazz label Strata East Records . If you’ve already checked out Part 1 you know what’s up. More deeply spiritual sounds – from Shamek Farrah & Sonelius Smith ‘s exquisite 1977 opener through Clifford Jordan ‘s essential homage to John Coltrane and classics like Gil Scott Heron & Brian Jackson ‘s “The Bottle.” To quote Billy Parker’s Fourth World, get with it.
