keepin it quiet and sensitive at the beginning of the show with the mighty Gregory Porter, Matthew Halsall transforming inspiration into pure feeling, 40 years of UK Jazz in between, Jamie Woon - what can i say . . . so good to hear the final version of a tune that i 've known for a long time in its acoustic version, beautiful string section for Malcolm X, courtesy of Joseph Malik, taken from his outstanding new album - soulsearching exclusive for the moment - a bit of Chaka is never wrong, especially played for Daz-I-Kue, Ben Westbeech now signed to Strictly Rythm with a killer song from his album forthcoming (for those who will be in Berlin, see you 29th April at Icon for his showcase), a duet of the other two vocalists in Jazz 2011, Nailah Porter & José James with Nicola Conte from his "Love & Revolution" album, which is so good and exactly the vibe i need right now, plus the early 70s vibe by The Stepkids.

Then straight into spring sunshine niceness by the one and only DJ Friction courtesy of his exclusive mixtape. danke, martin - exactly my kinda music!

Finishing off on the gospel kind of way, its easter weekend 2011.

peace . love . vibes .

enjoy the music.
