What is Jazz?
Is it freedom, is it tradition, is it alive, does it continue to evolve and thrive or is it an art form stuck in time. I cannot answer any of these questions or even really tell you what Jazz is. I can tell you how it makes me feel, where it takes me and what it means to me, but best I leave that to the music which does it much more eloquently.
For Volume 14 in the series I'm super excited to present one of the funkiest selectors and all round good guys, Jim Peas, co-host of 'The Soul Purpose Radio Show' on Radio Fremantle, Western Australia, alongside TeaKing. Jim keeps such a low profile on Mixcloud that his show is hosted by his friend Bon Lee: https://www.mixcloud.com/bon-lee2/ Check it out, it's my favourite radio show in the world and one I've been lucky enough to appear on 3 times.
Jim delivers 48 minutes of pure funk soul jazz beauty straight from his vinyl collection which inspires my answer and further answers the question, What Is Jazz?
