playjazzloud jazz sessions vol. 44

a.k.a. playjazzloud basement sessions #5.

Yes yes it's a new week and if you've been able to tear yourselves away from the soccer/football, which I barely did to drop this mix, there has been lots to watch with great games coming out of South Africa. Props to all the footballers working hard for their countries. Started out this week with a long time classic from Handsome Boy Modeling School w/Roisin Murphy from Moloko, then hitting some house sounds from Flying Lotus' new record and an oldie but goodie from Clyde. I had to drop a double bill from Gil Scott-Heron before heading to a latin feel with Ocho and a long time favorite, Seu Jorge. Finishing up with something that maybe I wouldn't normally play but it's been getting a lot of airplay on the radio here and it's gotten under my skin, it's not originally a stand out track for me from the new Nas & Damian Marley album but with everything going on in South Africa right now this has the perfect vibe.
