Looks an interesting one. Martin Freeman And Eddie Piller Present Jazz On The Corner on CD and vinyl, with via Acid Jazz.

Here’s the back story:

When Acid Jazz founder Eddie Piller asked Martin Freeman to do a jazz radio show they could hardly imagine the response. From around the world emails and tweets inundated the show and they swore to themselves that they couldn’t leave it there.

Now, two years on this compilation of their favourite jazz has arrived. From the rolling hard bop of Lee Morgan and Art Blakey, via screaming soul organ, jazz funk original acid jazz onwards to the post modern spiritual jazz of Kasami Washington, this is an incredible journey.

Update: The CD is now massively reduced on Amazon. You can pick up the double CD of this album for just £4.99 (from a previous £13.66). No idea if this is a short term deal or not, but that’s the price now. The vinyl is also slightly reduced, but not to the same level. It is £17.35 (down from £20.66).
