    Oh I remember that orchestral one, you posted it here or on the blog. Now bookmarked. Outstanding!

    Heather Small, astonishing voice, stunning body, shame about the hair



    the sax player is no slouch either, or the percussionist

    Her hair is fixed on Jools Holland



    then there's Cerys Mathews

    They left us too soon



    She used to be my girlfriend. Oh wait, that was a fantasy - but I did have one who looked like Janis Joplin



    Miles Davis became mildly obsessed with this song, much like John Coltrane and My Favourite Things

    A couple of oldies brought up to date without straying far from the original versions

    Oh boy, that first one sent me down a time tunnel to Motown/Berry Gordy, and Phil Spector's Wall Of Sound

    I emerged via



    love T-Boz' smoky voice

    the woefully underrated Carleen Anderson



    I remember seeing her with the Brand New Heavies, before N'Dea Davenport



    and coming nearly up to date

    Got to admit never heard of Carleen Anderson will have a look at more of her work

    Told you she was underrated! She also sang with the Young Disciples among others (she also looked like my ex)

    OK I'm back in the seventies again



    one of the ultimate live bands.

    So was the Brotherhood Of Breath, in a totally different way. I saw them many times. They were a loose collective consisting of many of the original Blue Notes from South Africa plus the great and good of British jazz. The lineup was forever changing depending who was available on the night but usually contained the rhythm section of Louis Moholo, Harry Miller and McGregor himself, plus Dudu Pukwana and Mike Osborne, who despite coming from Hereford could blow as African as anyone.

    The first track here is perhaps their best recording (most of their records were from live concerts), it reminds me of that line in the bible about making a joyful noise unto the Lord.

    The second track is more freeform and if you get bored forward to about 36.00 for some ZA funk

    Still back in the seventies. Music was going in all kinds of directions, and there were crossovers like jazz-rock and folk-rock. It seemed to be more about art and less about product than today.

    I pick up a lot from Jools Holland - where I first saw Carleen Anderson among many others. Back in the day of course there was John Peel - and I learned a lot about jazz from Radio Three - or it might still have been the Third Programme. In between I knew a load of musicians, but you won't have heard of most of them.

    I'm filling in the gaps between what I remember

    The glorious lunacy that was Rahsaan Roland Kirk



    He went blind in early childhood, and his second stroke killed him in his forties. I can guess what he was never diagnosed with.

    I DO listen to modern music too



    Beverley Knight is yet another outstanding singer who should be better known. Tight band and excellent drummer too, and there's lots more of her on YouTube, like for example

    I enjoyed that thanks Chris  thumb-up 

    Their website gives the  info on the last performance as 27/5/2016 seems to be nothing beyond that date

    There's one on YouTube from 2017 but not that special, not surprising really as they have been going since 1969.

    Meanwhile from Cameroon



    I have an absolutely blistering performance of this on video, sadly not on YouTube

    My first love is still South African jazz, here's a tune by the late Mongesi Feza played by Louis Moholo and co. I believe it was later made a hymn tune.



    Dedicated to dead people everywhere

    Other versions



    and this is quite astonishing

    OK I have been getting mildly(!) obsessed with musical history.

    African folk music first came to the west largely via slaves, and gave birth to the blues and jazz, and influenced a lot of rock music. Meanwhile they got hymn tunes.

    Then the western music went back to Africa and cross-fertilised with folk music from other countries.

    Things continued to go back and forth until we ended up with rap, and they got Tinariwen

    Still touring Africa via YouTube, and I didn't bump into Teresa May. Oh I mean Theresa May.

    Fela Ransome Kuti from Nigeria



    Relax for a whole hour, this is magnificent (but I wouldn't like to tune that thing)
