THE TRIP SESSION 88 AT MILK, READING WITH VINTAGE VINYL-30/6/12. PLAYLIST and JIMS RAMBLINGS. MORE PLAYLISTS AT www.jimz.biz -click
on jimz playlists.
NEXT SESSION ON 28th JULY, TWO HOURS OF WHICH WILL BE BROADCAST LIVE ON COMMUNITY RADIO-READING4U. I AM ALSO AT MILK FOR THE TWO DAY “REGGAETHON” ON JULY 21 st/22 nd, and Tracks and Grooves on JULY 26th.
Well possibly the most consistently full all evening session for a while, so thanks to all of you who stayed the distance, which is what the trip is really all about. I had no particular plot in mind, as having undertaken the previous three bank holiday sessions, with themes, this session was basically a random one to “practice”, for the live broadcast at the next session-even trying out my “radio voice”. I did intend to play some Nas
and Kurtis Blow, who both feature in the new issue of Waxpoetics, but I
had so many requests to play other hip-hop artists, that they did not get on.
Since the previous session I was also involved in two extra sessions at Milk, the Shed opening party and Jamie Howell trios session, plus with my other nights elsewhere a pretty busy month which looks to continue. It’s also great to be involved with Andrews Tracks and Grooves night here on the last Thursday-checkout its facebook page for playlists. Finally if you are in the remotest bit interested it’s my turn on JULY 29th to do Melodies and Memories at Milk. If you want to spend a few hours in the company of an old geezer, playing and talking about his earliest influences on vinyl, drop in, to what is fast turning into a must be at evening on the last sunday each month, created by Ralph Solly.
