Barry Manilow & All That Radio Jazz

(Preview by Russell)
First, a reminder of an unmissable television event this Sunday (17 August) – Battle of the Bands (BBC4, 7:00pm) featuring Clare Teal, Gregory Porter and two big bands slugging it out at this year’s Proms. Meanwhile on the wireless (the pictures are better) Bruce Turner is one of the requests on Jazz Record Requests (Radio 3, 5:00pm) and Jazz Line-Up, broadcast later than usual at 8:45pm (Radio 3), airs the second part of a concert recorded in Prague by John Scofield’s fantastic Uberjam Band.
Monday (18 August) tune into Paul Jones (Radio 2, 7:00pm) for an appreciation of the late Johnny Winter. At 11:00pm retune to Jazz on 3 (Radio 3) for some Edinburgh Festival highlights. Switch over to BBC 6 Music for a late night treat (2:00am) Alexis Korner: Rhythm and Blues Champion (the first of two programmes). Jamie Cullum meets Ben Jaffe, leader of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band (Radio 2, Tuesday, 7:00pm) and at eleven o’clock Barry Manilow (Bazza on BSH!) looks at the work of Sammy Kahn in They Write the Songs. Finally, on Thursday the third part of Moira Stuart’s Strong and Sassy – Inspiring Women of Jazz (Radio 2, 10:00pm) focuses on Adelaide Hall.
