Gilles Peterson Worldwide 11/30

gilles1_smThere is no special guest on the Gilles show this week, but he still gave us 2 solid hours of great music. In his words, much like the latest Robert Glasper album, Double Booked, this week’s show is split in two, starting with heavy jazz and leading into hip hop and soul.

The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble Pays Tribute

FULL SCREEN
The Sounds of VTech / Hypnotic Brass Ensemble by Mochilla   

The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble teamed up with Miguel Atwood-Ferguson in LA for this live event, which sold out quickly and brought support from artists like Aloe Blacc and Madlib. Miguel Atwood-Ferguson played viola and wrote this arrangement of “Scrabble” specifically for the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. It’s a jazz song by Rene Costy, which inspired Dilla to create one of his best-loved tracks.

The enthusiastic crowd of music lovers that packed their way into the Echoplex for this special show and were not disappointed by the magic they witnessed. Exclusive music, top quality sound, and a stunning performance. Thanks to VTech Music and Mochilla for the video.
