When Charlie Gillett died four months ago, the world music business lost its first and greatest broadcasting champion.

His boundless curiosity and enthusiasm, and his indefatigable advocacy when he found a worthy cause, allowed him to shape the musical taste of generations. This compilation, which he finished in his final weeks, includes 36 artists from 34 countries, from the Far East and Latin America to the Mediterranean and North, South and Central Africa. As a last will and testament, it's splendid.
