Gilles Peterson and Ben Westbeech in Paris, Homecookin' & DeepSoul3

Ben Westbeech, his band, and of course Gilles were incredibly good. I had an extraordinary evening. Ben seems to be a really nice guy (watch out for his LP dropping next month), the club had a decent sound, and the crowd was in a good mood.
Nevertheless, I would have wished for a little less hard-to-dance-to Brazilian music, Gilles. Apart from that, the transition from Alice Coltrane via some HipHop classics, Funk and Samba over Soil and Pimp to close with Minimal and House-- what can I say?!

Plus, Ichi.One's latest Homecookin' guestmix for DeepSoul3 is perfect, and the 4hero LP is out and superbe... Musically, 2007 starts off as a good year.
