Gilles Peterson: Shuggie Otis in conversation

15.12.12 Gilles Peterson talks to 1970s child prodigy and RnB star Shuggie Otis.

The man behind the classic Inspiration Information album and Strawberry Letter 23 was in the UK last month ahead of his comeback gigs, and he discusses his music career and work with Frank Zappa.

Gilles also showcases some previously unheard material, which will be released early next year on Shuggie's Wings Of Love compilation.
