Really… who wants to be working on a day like today when you could be sitting and sipping in the sun. So, should you feel like popping some bottle tops for a splash of something soothing why not try these tunes as a musical mixer..

And speaking of mixes I’m working on a new comp’ for Matt’s The Right Side Of Funky blog ( you really should check out the new ‘Quel Organ’ Mix on there right now) which I’m trying to keep as tight as pair of snug fit Speedos but just can’t seem to tuck these tunes into the tracklist…

Sergio Mendes and Brazil 77 – ‘Superstition’

Patricia Marx – ‘Menino’

Azymuth – Jazz Carnival
