Jazz at the Proms and More

Tune in to BBC Radio 3 next week to hear two jazz performances at this year’s Proms. Proms Plus Late (Monday, 10:10 pm) features Emily Dankworth and her quartet. On Wednesday night (10:15 pm) – BBC Proms 2013 – Django Bates takes on the onerous responsibility of presenting the very best of British (and European) jazz to a world wide audience. Bates’ Beloved Trio, augmented by the Norrbotten Big Band, celebrates the music of Charlie Parker. Bates will be reunited with his Loose Tubes comrade Ashley Slater. On this occasion Slater will forsake his trombone, working as a vocalist. A bonus, a welcome one at that, sees the return of the excellent Moira Stuart (Tuesday Sept. 3. Radio 2, 10:00 pm) as she presents one of her occasional series on an aspect of jazz. This time Stuart focuses on Moira Stuart’s Jazz Guitarists. The first of four programmes looks at the work of Charlie Byrd.
