If you don't know by now that we here love Gilles Peterson, think of him highly as not only a wicked selekta, but also musical historian and look to him for the next, then....errr, now ya know. Week in and week out, he breaks some heat from all around the world on his BBC Radio 1 show (which you can stream here from when its posted on Thursday for one week ONLY) and we want to kind of recognize that by reviewing our highlights of each weekly show here.

So this show had many many gems. Here were some of my most fave:

John Coltrane Quartet – ‘Lonnie’s Lament’ (Impulse)

Mos Def & Robert Glasper – ‘Stakes Is High’ [Live In Concert] (Test)
This was like a lengthy lengthy hip hop jazz jam of Mos doing his take on De La Soul's Stakes Is High. I gotta find this, ASAP.
Update: Download it here

Dee Dee Bridgewater – ‘Children Go Round’ [King Britt FiveSix Mix] (FiveSix)
King Britt brings it with the tribal riddims here. Mellow enough for chilling but jamming enough if the spirit moves you into an impromptu shake it session. Feeeeeelin.

Luiz Bonfa & Roberto Paiva – ‘Eu E Meu Mulher’ (EMI - REISSUE)
Great samba par-tay music! Nice nice, poppin fresh.

Seu Jorge – ‘Mina Dos Condominio’ (Javali Valente)
I already knew Seu was the dude, but he is DOING IT UP on this track. Gilles highly recommends this album and I am going to do just that!

Roots Manuva – ‘Again And Again’ (Big Dada)
This is the new heat from Roots Manuva. Big dancehall vibes. I was already brainstorming my moves!
