Biography

In 2014, all roads lead to Brazil. As the World Cup draws near, the not-so-sleeping giant of South America will move to centre-stage, and its irresistible rhythms will become the soundtrack of the summer. Cheesy compilations will line up to cash in, peddling worn-out clichés of girls from Ipanema. But for those who want the real musical flavour of Brazil - its super-dynamic present and ...

Veteran UK DJ/taste-maker Gilles Peterson has long been a champion of all things leftfield, independent and jazzy/soulful. His BBC Radio One Worldwide show has been a landmark event for this type of music, showcasing a variety of sounds and artists – from veterans to newcomers – and attracting listeners from all around the globe. The BBC Sessions is a collection of recordings made by some of Peterson’s many guests on the show over the last five years. Most of these tracks were aired just once or twice at the time then left to gather dust in the BBC archives, but Gilles has unearthed a typically eclectic selection and compiled them for posterity. The subsequent double CD features covers, jams, versions and collaborations by artists from the worlds of jazz, pop, folk, soul, hip hop and electronica (including Zero 7, Beck, Amp Fiddler, Nitin Sawhney, Jamie Cullum, Björk, Roots Manuva, Beth Gibbons and many other equally hip and revered names), to create a stylish anthology and a wonderful snapshot of innovative music from around the world. --Paul Sullivan

Gilles Peterson brings cutting edge and quietly dynamic artists to the forefront of music culture, introducing open-minded music lovers to a myriad of genres, sounds and souls with his radio shows.
Here on CD for the first time are the very best tracks by the very best artists recorded live in session on Worldwide.
Just look at the stunning tracklist: blessed worldknown artists singing and playing from somewhere deep inside!
Be carefull if you don't know any tracks; maybe you'll buy 14+14 albums in the next weeks...

Gilles Peterson is a great scout for new (jazz-influenced) music. This CD is not all brilliant. But the number of really good performances on it makes it a very worth-while buy. Jazmine Sullivan is very soulful. Bilal's vocal is haunting. Roots Manuva is very cool on "Dreamy Days". And this CD introduced me to the Heritage Orchestra. They are touring with Tim Minchin and I've got tickets to see them in May. I can't wait.

Taking a potpurri of his favourite live sessions, Gilles Peterson presents us with an amazing display of some of the best and most original artists out there this day with never before released versions from Bjork, Beck, Common, Jamie Cullum, Zero 7... need I go on?!?!
So once again he's made it into my "at the moment top 5ers". I take my hat off to Gilles, bravo!
