Before Stylin came on the scene in 2001, I used to do a radio show with Andrew Hurley called 'Hipsters Avenue' (Japan's Minoru Yanai joined us for a while too). Andrew and I were both fans of the German Saba/MPS jazz releases of the 60s and 70s and especially the 'Jazz Meets the World' series. As a student and fluent speaker of German, Andrew was able to take this interest many steps further, culminating in a PhD thesis on the series and its producer Joachim E Berendt. Andrew is currently in talks with publishers for the release of his thesis as a book. In the meantime, until 4th November, you can see Andrew's exhibition 'Jazz Pope' (a reference to Berendt) at The Narrows, 141 Flinders Lane, with rare photos, album covers and other artifacts. This week's new album recommendations are Peven Everett's 'Power Soul', the cinematic lounge-beat of Moodorama's 'My Name is Madness' and some indie hip hop with Raydar Ellis' 'Late Pass'.


As far as I know, I am not a robot.
