Breath taking! Earlier this evening Jimi and his Bird Effect Ensemble performed the Bird Effect title track in full live on 6 Music’s Marc Riley show. It is a beautiful mesmerizing piece of music, that should be listened to in full. If you have a chance to attend the performance in London next Thursday you should jump at it! Well impressed, Jimi probably should be expecting a call from the National Geographic channel here soon..
Listen to the track in full at the BBC iPlayer here. For Jimi’s section jump to 34 minutes in!
Jimi also briefly talked about the ‘solo’ record, mentioning he hoped it would see light of day next Spring! Exciting times ahead..

Earlier in the day Jimi co-hosted the Radcliffe and Maconie show with Guy Garvey. Haven’t had a chance to listen to it myself yet. You can replay the show on demand using the iPlayer here.
You gotta ask.. how long is it before Jimi gets his own 6 music show?!
