Album: Gilles Peterson: Magic Peterson Sunshine

Gilles Peterson - Magic Peterson Sunshine

Gilles Peterson has a special love affair with MPS. To be exact, it goes back more than three decades to the London of the 1980’s when Gilles stood at the beginning of an exceptional career as DJ, Radio personality, and producer. At that time he was already interested in unusual and unique jazz recordings, and so he inevitably came across the record label from Germany’s Black Forest (Schwarzwald), whose catalogue encompassed a large, totally distinct repertoire that had never been released anywhere else. Naturally, there was a long list of amazing interpretations of jazz classics from acknowledged jazz masters, but early on Gilles had developed the talent to dig deeper into the depths of the archives in order to ferret out the special features of the catalogue – occasionally discovering a obscurity – and bring them to the light of day. It features cuts from Don Blis, Mary Lou Williams, George Gruntz, Francy Boland, John Taylor Trio, Wolfgang Dauner and more.
