Gilles Peterson and Jazzanova/Kings of Jazz 2CD

Product Information
Kings Of... series continues bringing you forgotten and neglected gems from the world of music. This, the fifth volume, ventures into the world of Jazz. Influential DJ/Broadcaster Gilles Peterson pairs up with producer/remixer collective Jazzanova to bring you a selection of their top tracks across 2 CD's. CD1 is Gilles Peterson's selection, “The History” where he delves deep into his own extensive library, digging up tracks that range from early work like the blues-tinged saxophone recording of John Coltrane and the amazing piano of Bill Evans (which ends the CD perfectly) to up-tempo pieces such as “Anthenagin” and a laid-back version of “My Favorite Things” by Mark Murphy. Peterson visits every decade from the 50's to the 80's and turns up an array of under-appreciated tracks by some of the most important names in Jazz. CD 2 is Jazzanova's selection: “The Present”, this disc takes on the contemporary styles influenced by Jazz from Broken Beat to Jazz-House and Electronica, featuring a wonderful re-working of Goldies ‘Inner City Life’ by [re:jazz], 4 Hero and The Matthew Herbert Big Band - ‘Everything's Changed’. A truly stunning collection of music covering almost half a century.
