Gilles Peterson's Winners 2007

Gilles on the left and ?uestlove on the right.

Every year Gilles Peterson's listeners select their top tunes and then he kindly plays them in order from number 35 to number 1, which is very nice of him.

Gilles needs no introduction but here is a very brief bio - Dingwalls legend/Talkin' Loud/Acid Jazz/Jazz FM/Kiss FM/Radio 1/digger supreme. He's also been an absolute gent on the two or three times that I've met him.
