The tagline for this new double-disc compilation, out on BBE Records October 11th, Gilles Peterson Worldwide is "A Celebration of His Syndicated Radio Show." It's filled with some of Gilles Peterson's biggest radio successes: the acts he broke on BBC1, the bands he catapulted to cult status, the songs he made into international sensations, and basically many of the milestones from the last ten years of funk, soul and jazz music.
In fact, we get giddy every Thursday when we have the exclusive stream to share with you. Check out past shows of the highly-influential 2-hour broadcast. [GPWW on Giant Step]
Gilles' selections throughout the years have influenced all of us, if not the whole world. He's been on a massive quest 'for the perfect beat,' and thanks to this show, we're constantly updated on the status of the noble, necessary mission.
