GIL SCOTT HERON

As I'm sure your all aware by now "Gil Scott Heron" passed away May 27th 2011. Truly a living legend. He was a poet, singer, activist, author and musician who created a fusion of blues, jazz and soul as well as lyrical content concerning political and personal issues.

Sadly after a long struggle with HIV he passed away but his memory lives on. I could post my favourite Gil song but have decided instead to post a tribute mix by none other than BBC presenter and "Brownswood" head honcho "Giles Peterson". I think "Giles" nailed it with this mix and anyone who is a gil fan should give it a listen.
