A Radio Riddle

(Preview by Russell)
Three radio programmes to tune into this week. Jazz on 3 (Monday, 11:00pm) presents highlights from this summer’s Vision Festival in New York featuring Roscoe Mitchell (Art Ensemble of Chicago). On Wednesday BBC Radio 4 Extra presents a programme first broadcast in 2005 in which Christopher Bigsby talks to Arthur Miller. Playwright Miller recorded spirituals and blues sung by North Carolina’s poor in 1941. In Arthur Miller: the Accidental Music Collector expect to hear something special. The half hour documentary will be aired three times at 6:30am, 1:30pm and again at 8:30pm. Finally, Friday Night is Music Night (Radio 2, 8:00pm) celebrates the talents of Nelson Riddle. The BBC Big Band and BBC Concert Orchestra will be joined by Clare Teal and, from America, Curtis Stigers.   
Russell.
(Ed. Note): And, of course, Gary Copley on Radio York and Leeds:6pm – 9pm every Sunday.

PS: The Chris Ingham Quartet track on Hoagy's My Resistance is Low has Russ Morgan on drums! Russ of course is now a stalwart of the north-east jazz scene.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
