This week's show features a recording of a live session hand-picked from the BBC archives featuring the Oscar Peterson Trio performing Hallelujah Time! for Jazz 625 in 1964. The session includes Oscar Peterson on piano, Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums.

Plus, to celebrate the start of the World Cup, Jamie selects a tune by South African jazz singer Letta Mbulu. Every week during the competition he will find a football-flavoured track.
