GPWW 8/23/10: Uproot Andy Mix

Gilles Peterson starts off this week with a tribute to legendary jazz singer Abbey Lincoln, who just passed away a few weeks ago. Gilles plays her track with Max Roach and the appropriately titled “Long As You’re Living.” Later he gets into other acts like Systema Solar, Oriol, Moonstarr, Leatherette, Finn Peters and of course, more music you’ve never heard before.

Gilles also has a special guest mix from Uproot Andy (pictured above) of Brooklyn, a resident DJ at the weekly ‘Que Bajo’ party at Santos Party House (NYC). His mix involves lots of globally-influenced remixes of Los Rakas, Amadou and Mariam, Chief Boimba and more.
