2010 Week 26

Have I missed any posting about Mark Coles World of Music? It's early days and as Mark admitted, Charlie's are big boots to fill, but I thought this programme was a good attempt with Mark setting out his own tastes and memories. I particularly liked his introduction to how he first heard Dudu Pukwana in Brighton as well as the track itself. I hope it wasn't too jazz flavoured for SoTW forum members. I have a long-held passion for Brotherhood of Breath.
I shall look forward to hearing the Emahoy track on Charlie's 2010 compilation.
The tracklisting is here

Mark Coles said at the start of his first program that he'd be doing it for the next few months. Whether that means that someone else might take over, or that World of Music will go the same way as the rest of World Service's music output . . .

Me too, and I've still got their original vinyl albums on Neon/RCA.
When I introduced Charlie to them in the 1980s he said he found their mix of traditional african tunes, colonial marching bands,Ellington- style Big Band arrangements and uninhibited free jazz blowing - "invigorating" which was praise indeed from Charlie who didnt really connect with much jazz. He later wasted an evening going to a Chris MacGregor (leader B.o.b) gig where he found it "much too free" and not remotely like what he'd heard on the tape I'd sent him. I felt bad about that.


I'm thrilled that someone called Trombone Shorty exists never mind how good he might be. I'll have to catch up with this show. Thanks for pointing it up Russell.
