Gilles Peterson Presents: MV4 (Live from Maida Vale)
A mighty live session from the finest of the London jazz scene. ‘Gilles Peterson Presents: MV4 (Live from Maida Vale)’ on his Brownswood imprint.
Originally intended as a live session for BBC Radio 6, this day of live recordings is helmed by the masterfully diverse keys of Joe Armon Jones and his band, Dylan Jones, James Mollison, Mutale Chashi, and Marijus Aleksa. It features some killer guest performances from Nubya Garcia, Fatima, Asheber, Hak Baker and Oscar Jerome, with two ethereal tracks by Ishmael Ensemble.
A dreamy flow of soulful melodies run throughout, as these musicians, at the top of their form, jam versions of their individually released tracks; descending into powerful improvisations that hold with a firm grip.
