Thursday - Max Reinhardt

Max Reinhardt's varied selection Fela Kuti's Pansa Pansa, new recordings by Cuban pianist Omar Sosa and Swedish electronica duo Roll the Dice, plus a classic from John Coltrane.

Max Reinhardt's infusion for a spring night mixes the organ of Merton College Oxford with Firecrackers from Marissa Nadier, Fela Kuti's Pansa Pansa with a stunning version of Tom Waits' God's Away on Business, new recordings by Cuban pianist Omar Sosa and dark electronica duo Roll The Dice from Sweden, a heady delight from The Bleeding Peasant Orchestra along with a Parabolic Amphibian Mix which gives some airtime to tree frogs, and a pair of classics from the 60's from John Coltrane and Amiri Baraka.
