Night Watch
Sunday June 23rd, 2019 with Dav Fot
Psychfest teaser Monobrow! TBWNIAS!

Because Jazzfest is on, I thought I would reverse the usual Nightwatch S.O.P. and start in the jazz vein and then head towards the heavier material, including finishing with a feature on two of the local bands at the upcoming Psychfest next Friday/Saturday at Targ!! Get'cher passes!
As mentioned, I felt like starting in the jazz vein because of Jazzfest - finishing this set with a track from local jazz guitar hero, Roddy Ellias, who hosts a late-night jazz jam at Grill 41 in the Lord Elgin Hotel Saturday evenings.
Africa
John Coltrane - Africa
On The Ginza
Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers - UGETSU
The Lopsided Robot
Roddy Ellias - Monday's Dream Canadian
After some tried-and-true jazz (OK, the Roddy Ellias track was far from 'trad'), we move into fusion territory!
Sleeping Giant
Herbie Hancock - Crossings
Apologies for truncating the Herbie somewhat - the minutes were disappearing faster than I expected. Time to go to Britain for some classic jazz-rock from Soft Machine and their classic lineup - Mike Ratledge: keyboards, composer; Hugh Hopper: bass, composer; Elton Dean: alto saxophone, saxello; Robert Wyatt: drums, vocals
Facelift
Soft Machine - Live at The Proms 1970
