Influential DJ, producer, radio-presenter and founder of the Acid Jazz and Talkin’ Loud labels, Gilles Peterson has handpicked 11 of his jazz favorites from the immense catalog of the Dutch jazz Timeless label. Included are Pharaoh Sanders’ cosmic jazz “Moonchild,” vocal-jazz from Carter Jefferson’s “Why,” danceable-jazz from Tom Grant, “No Me Esqueca,” Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers “In Case You Missed It,” and more.

In 2015, Peterson put together a Japan-only CD compilation of 10 tracks. For the vinyl version, the track list has been augmented with the previously unreleased version of “Gibraltar (Alternate Take)” by the Kirk Lightsey Trio feat. Freddie Hubbard, and “World Peace” by Timeless All Stars.

Exclusively for Record Store Day 2024, Timeless Jazz Classics Volume 1 is available on vinyl for the very first time. The 2-LP set is available as a limited edition of 750 individually numbered copies on silver colored vinyl and includes an insert with liner notes and track-by-track information by Gilles Peterson.
