I write: hey, look, jan, this is one of the first playlists in the world with the new Bang/Honore album in, well, very good neigbourhood. Jan Bang answers: that´s what i call a nice birthday present … I answer: oh, happy birthday!!!! You can hang it on the wall:) … Jan answers: not today, but on your broadcasting day. i bought the fennesz album in london recently. beautiful work. I: Fennesz risks being romantic, and it works.

Guy Sigsworth writes: Wonderful playlist. Will check out some of the unknown tracks next weeks. I love Matthew Bourne’s Montauk Variations. His piano playing probably owes as much to Messiaen, John Cage or Ligeti as it does to McCoy Tyner, Bill Evans or Keith Jarrett. Bourne judges mood better than any young pianist I know. Just when the avant-gardism hits the limit of what a generous but unsure listener can comprehend, he’ll resolve into a serenely naive hymn: difficulty and simplicity in perfect balance.
