Brilliant Corners, fine venue, fine food, fine hi-fi, fine music, fine crowd, celebrated its first birthday last Saturday (we were there on the Friday to catch Phil Mison & Justin Strauss). To help mark those celebrations we have a set recorded by head chef, and sometime Afrobuddha, Kay Suzuki, live one Sunday in June, once the bar had closed its doors, `round midnight.
Sitars, lost roads, tabla and Wobble. Birdsong and Codek. Breakers` favourite “Twilight”. Will Downing bootlegged, mashed up and spiked. Was Not Was, Punk Jazz not Jazz, No Wave Funk and the real thing. A New York afternoon, a Harlem River drive. Vocodered Brasilian Boogie. Soaring Loft classics. Italian masters and Theo`s future. Live from the kissaden. A place where pathways meet.
Congratulations to Kay and owners Amit & Aneesh Patel. たんじょうびおめでいとございます。
