It was a real treat to have Pharoahe Monch after Stylin, the man behind my favourite album of 2007. He put on a great show at Good Vibrations too, ably assisted by singers Mela Machinko and Showtyme from his album, plus a band assembled by Alicia Keys' musical director.
We were hoping to have K-Os in the show too. He had rescheduled his flight to come on Stylin, but the flight ended up being cancelled anyway!
Notable selections: Carlos Nino & Miguel Atwood-Ferguson with their second Dilla tribute, Five Corners Quintet on an album called 'Modal Jazz Loves Disney' (seriously), Briztronix representing Aussie hip hop beats and some amazing vocal jazz from Carmen Lundy and Jose James fresh for 2008.
The sad news this week was the loss of Hungarian bassist Jackie Orszaczky, who had been living in Sydney for many years and was well-liked by all up there. Jackie was probably best known for his jazz/prog, sometimes funky work with the group Syrius. We heard a cut from his 1975 solo album which was released in Australia only.
Stylin broadcasts live each Friday on Australia's best known community station, 3RRR-FM Melbourne.
