Gilles Peterson // Significant Album // #170

May 31, 2015

Each week, we will be sharing the top 200 albums that have shaped me so far. The album this week is Earthquake Island by John Hassell.

This album was released in 1978 on Tomato, and it features quite an impressive variety of musicians. Find yourself in a Sunday haze; whether its driven by Nana Vasconcelo’s percussion, Miroslav Vitou’s bass or Hassell on synth & trumpet duty. Some jazz-fused, organic and textural rhythms to add some spice to your day.
