Gilles Peterson // Significant Album // #139

August 5, 2016

We’re continuing the countdown of the albums that have shaped Gilles Peterson so far. The album this week is Adventures in Paradise by Minnie Ripperton.

Minnie Ripperton, what a voice. This album was released on Epic in 1975, just before Minnie was diagnosed with cancer. The title track, Adventures in Paradise was co-written by Joe Sample. A beautiful, sensitive, dreamy album with the infectious presence of an artist we didn’t have enough time to fully experience.
