101. Pianist, composer & arranger Paul Harrison has already featured in Scottish Jazz Space’s quarantine series, however judging by the two tracks already available to hear on Bandcamp, his new, home-produced digital album ‘Adventures From Home’ is definitely worthy of separate mention. Due for release on 1st September, this is one not to miss. Here is his very lovely interpretation of Egberto Gismonti’s ‘Loro’.

100. Scotland being the size it is probably encourages the frequent collaborations between jazz and roots/ trad musicians, with many individual musicians adept across genres. To celebrate our trad musician friends, here is a simply lovely recording by the Edinburgh International Festival as part of this year’s online festival My Light Shines On: A Celebration of the Festival City. Aidan ORourke (fiddle), Rachel Sermanni (vocals), Bashir Saade (ney), Graeme Stephen (guitar) & Brรฌghde Chaimbeul (bagpipes).

99. Continuing to riff on John Rae, here he is again on the just released Brian Kellock Trio’s Standards album, Think About It. One imagines that Miles would be more than happy with this excellent version of ‘Stella By Starlight’. Brian Kellock (piano), John Rae (drums) & Kenny Ellis (double bass). Great stuff! ๐Ÿ˜€
