MIMS ShowsMy Favorite Things

MY FAVORITE THINGS — Show #29 w/ Emanuela De Luca (Hosted by Psycut)

Hi Everybody, we’re almost at the last edition “My Favorite Things” show of this very strange year.

Show #29 has a very particular flavor cause I’m very happy to receive my favorite Parisian DJ : Emanuela De Luca. To welcome this very special guest, I started the show with a very special track from 1957 by a legendary french singer on a lovely jazz melody. As usual I have selected some of my last favorite diggings like the great cover of the huge spiritual jazz theme “The Creator Has a Master Plan” by Dezron Douglas & Brandee Younger, a track from the last fusion album from Byron the Aquarius, the brand new Jimi Tenor and Kokoroko and the fabulous Sun Palace’s Edit from Moodymann on BBE. To complete my personal part, here are two lovely soul nuggets : Arthur “So close to you” with its folk attitude and the 1st reissue of the Brand New Kev Beadle Label by Dianne Mower “The Secret Sign”.

The Emanuela’s mix starts with some Soul Jazz Gliding including a very actual track called « I’ll sing from my window » from O’Donel Levy … if you follow what I mean !!! Her mix carries on with some great deep and mellow tunes by Eiji Nakayama, Noe’s Jazz Ensemble, Tom Scott & the L.A. Express, Catalyst and the italian Sestetto Dino Piana & Oscar Valdambrini. Gradually the selection goes into some wicked fusion Jazz Dancefloor including Ryo Kawasaki (RIP), Boy Katindig and the anthem “Sombre Guitar” by Danser’s Inferno.

Enjoy !!!
