here the word of Gilles Peterson himself ...... a new album cometh ........

"I'm really pleased with this one (Worldwide Vol.4) "

Out in April will be Worldwide Vol.4 which on this occasion will feature strictly exclusive tunes - featured artists: Cinematic Orchestra, Jazzanova, Outlines (aka Irfane), Seiji, Umod, New Sector Movements, Peven Everett, 2b04, Matthew Herbert w/Rosheen Murphy, Nicola Conte, Ty, Build an Ark, Zero 7, Gotan Project, Roy Ayers and Eric Roberson (aka Ayro). I'm really pleased with this one - makes me feel like an A&R man again! Out in May comes Impressed Vol. 2 with a bunch more UK jazz rarities!!

I've also just started working on a Brazilian mix for Trama/Sambaloco which will feature one CD of old school (Brazilica style) and one CD of fresh newness from the likes Bruno E and Drumagik - should be out in June. On the subject of the Talkin Loud retrospective just out, I need to tell you that I had nothing to do with it as it was conceived by Universal Special Projects dept - however all things considered I think its a pretty well put together selection compiled by Johnny Chandler.
