Happy Thursday, the day of the week in which we take 2 hours minimum to enjoy the classic Gilles Peterson World Wide radio show. This week Gilles is really flexing his jazz wax: nothing but vinyl, nothing but jazz with a slight lean towards Latin. These are choice selections from the famously diverse Brownswood vinyl collection, literally boasting titles from around the world. The show jumps around from known classics to rarities, but the tracklist includes artists such as Eddie Jefferson, (pictured above), Sonny Red, Grachan Moncur III, Sam Rivers, Earl Rodney, Sun Ra, Bob Dorough and more.

Clearly, we at Giant Step celebrate the World Wide show every Thursday, but BBE Records is about to celebrating the show’s 10 Year Anniversary by dropping a double-CD compilation album. It’s incredible that Gilles has been on the air (BBC1 Radio) for a decade now, consistently breaking new artists into the mainstream. Check out more info, streams, and a free download from the forthcoming release (in stores 10/11) here: Gilles Peterson Presents: Worldwide – A Celebration of His Syndicated Radio Show.
