Summer Soul Station Part 5: Summer Grooves

This is part 5 of Summer Soul Station. The first track of this mix, ‘I’ll look around’ from Esperanza Spalding, is from a brand new Billie Holiday tribute on StormVox that came out this week. ‘The bottle’ is another cover version. It was written by soul innovator and spoken word artist Gil Scott-Heron, who passed away on the 27th of May. I included a version of Maysa Leak, one of the singers of Incognito. She gives the song an up-tempo, more optimistic feel. And I always like Señor Coconut, his music gives me the perfect summer feeling. You have to check out his song about the Tour de France (the world's biggest cycling event that is taking place now). It is a Latin version of the Kraftwerk classic. I put in a track from Brazilian jazz funk band Azymuth, teaming up with Jazzanova this time. I will play a track from the new Azymuth album ‘Aurora’ very soon. Enjoy! Picture from Calvin Dexter.
