AllMusic Review by

Gilles Peterson's name is synonymous with modern soul music, and his radio program on BBC Radio One is one of the most successful in the station's history. Every Wednesday night, jazz and soul fanatics worldwide tune in to find out what exclusives Peterson has in his pocket or what dusty he'll next unleash on a salivating public. This second volume of the Worldwide program keeps in tradition with his radio program, with a little bit of old (Sun Ra, Gene Harris) and a little bit of the new (4hero, Dwele) and mixing it up into the signature sound that only he can deliver. It's no less than his best work to date and a perfect starting point for those unfamiliar with his radio program or his previous mix CDs.
