Stuart Baker DJ Set (Part 1)
In the first of two guest DJ sets from Stuart Baker, the founder of the legendary London label Soul Jazz Records discusses his affinity for the Afro-Caribbean rhythms of vodou, santería and the Garifuna people of Central America, and plays a stunning set of music culled only partly from the Soul Jazz catalogue. Playing some tracks he has licensed and put out, others he recorded himself on countless trips to the Antilles, and others that he simply loves, Baker starts in Florida, and then brings us music from Cuba, Haiti, Guadeloupe, Panama, Belize and more, throwing down a set of cuts that are almost all infused with a deep undercurrent of Afro-Caribbean spirituality.
