Global A Go-GoGlobal A Go-Go: Friday March 7, 2014

Maybe it's a phenomenon unique to my ears, but I've always felt that reggae and jazz go together like beer and pretzels (or fill in your preferred "complements" analogy here).  Whenever I hear a good one-drop riddim, I immediately jump to all the great improvisational ideas that it triggers.

I don't hear too many bands working in that direction, so when I do I pay extra close attention.  You'll hear a new one on this week's show: they're from Chicago, they're called Ted Sirota's Heavyweight Dub, their debut album is produced by legendary Jamaican mixologist Scientist and it's the real deal.

Also this week: a few recent favorites from West Africa, the "spatial organ" (his term) of Peru's Carlos Pickling, and the glory days of South African kwaito.
