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 15 in the series I'm super happy to present one of the deepest crate diggers and vinyl slingers, Dj TeaKing, co-host of 'The Soul Purpose Radio Show' on Radio Fremantle, Western Australia with Jim Peas. TeaKing 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.
TeaKing delivers 51 minutes of pure jazz mayhem straight from his vinyl collection, a hard act to follow indeed. I finish with 45 minutes heavily indebted to TeaKing's mix.
