EDITORS’ NOTES

London-based DJ Gilles Peterson has been spinning and releasing jazz-inflected club music since the ‘80s. He’s headed up such high profile labels as Acid Jazz, Talkin’ Loud, and Brownswood Recordings, and Worldwide - A Celebration of His Syndicated Radio Show is an excellent compilation that draws on the sort of material he plays on his BBC radio program. The collection opens with the epic “All Things to All Men,” by Cinematic Orchestra, a track that features a chugging groove decked out with horns and harp that serves as a backdrop for Roots Manuva’s fierce MC work. The 21st-century slow jam, “He Loves Me (Lyzel In e Flat),” finds Jill Scott playing off of an itchy beat and lush strings. With its marriage of electronica and jazzy ‘tude, “The Audience” is classic Herbert — here’s an artist who picks up where the great ‘70s outfit Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band left off. The beats tumble forward and the vocals stay smooth on Victor Duplaix’s excellent “Manhood,” while Jose James takes his sweet time on the lovely ballad, “The Dreamer.”
