Martin Freeman and Eddie Piller present Jazz On The Corner Two


An extensive sweep of their favourite tracks. Jazz on The Corner Two is such a great collection, really friendly entrance points and some deep cuts, a great trip.

Following the success of 'Jazz On The Corner' in 2018, Acid Jazz Records are pleased to present a new collection – the nattily titled Jazz on The Corner Two.  Once again sees Acid Jazz affiliate, dedicated music fan and actor Martin Freeman partner up with the label’s head honcho Eddie Piller.

Intrinsically united by a love of music, no more so than an oeuvre that has enthralled both from an early age, be it music their parents may have passed on, to discovering the wonders of crate digging as they entered their formative years  - Jazz On The Corner Two meanders  through  those times from the old to the new and back again via a diverse selection of tracks.

As Freeman proffers in the album’s sleeve notes, “…going through my records again for things that haven’t appeared on loads of comps (as far as I know of anyway) is a fine excuse to do my favourite thing and pretend it’s work.” Meanwhile Piller alludes to his youth and younger self detailing, “From the moment I first heard Gilles Peterson on pirate radio back in the mid-eighties I fully embraced the underground London Jazz scene. It took me back to my childhood, accompanying my dad to jazz pubs like the Cauliflower in Ilford. Later, reminiscing of DJ’s whilst frequenting the likes of Upstairs At Ronnie’s and other word-of-mouth Soho jazz spots".
