Edition 65 - Disney and Drones (2014 version) : I was inspired by a recent concert by the Sun Ra Arkestra at the Barbican to revisit my love of Disney tunes. To hunt out some of the incredible covers by the 'greats' such as Dave Brubeck, Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong. I included some bit parts for Princes and Princesses (tenuous I know!) and alongside this a selection of new and old tracks which could loosely be called drone or ambient music. Enjoy some dark, magical and mysterious musical characters presented in, I think, an unusual context.
