Tune in for a three hour show from the legendary Colin Curtis as he blends in jazz, soul and funk. Expect jazz, dance and fusion from all around the world with fantastic undiscovered music from Brazil (44 years later!) and new music from Leeds and London. Plus music from Cuba, Japan, Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, USA and beyond.
With a career spanning decades, Colin Curtis is one of the key figures in the development of Northern soul and jazz dance scenes in the North of England. He was one of the first British DJs to introduce Chicago house and other African American genres like jazz funk and disco to club sets this side of the pond.
This week, Colin is still riding on the optimism of live gigs returning later in the year especially the We Out Here Festival 19th – 22nd of August 2021. This weeks show heads out from Japan with a spotlight on another great four piece powerhouse band with a dozen albums under their belt plus other Japanese highlights! We then head to South America, Brasil, Peru up via Cuba to New York & Chicago then over through Sweden & Italy heading on down to South Africa and ending in Mali.Listen now
