Salute Adolphe with Stobart, Brass Jaw and more

(Report by Russell)
Radio 3 is the place to be this Saturday (August 30). Kathy Stobart is remembered on Jazz Record Requests (5:00pm) - nice one Hugh! and Brass Jaw come from the Edinburgh Fringe at six o’clock (Jazz Line-Up). The midnight appreciation of Mose Allison should be worth a listen (Geoffrey Smith’s Jazz) then on Sunday afternoon Radio 4 (1:30pm) broadcasts a programme that isn’t about jazz or maybe it is…The Map That Made Manhattan is a half hour documentary ‘Filled with the sounds and atmosphere of New York...’ Odds on a film noir, Bowery Boys, Hopper-esque soundtrack!
Monday’s date with Paul Jones (Radio 2, 7:00pm) celebrates more of the winners of this year’s British Blues Awards. Jools returns, not on the telly, he’s on Radio 2 (11:00pm) in a new thirteen week run of Jools Holland (turn on your other radio, tune to Radio 3 and  listen simultaneously to Jazz on 3). Jamie Cullum can be found in his usual Tuesday slot (7:00pm) and Radio 3’s Late Junction (11:00pm) can usually be relied upon for one or two jazz things. This evening’s installment offers Ornette Coleman and Steve Lacey and Wednesday’s edition – same time – promises Herbie Hancock. Fancy some heavy duty classical? John Adams and Mahler? Hmmm. The interval talk Proms Plus Intro (Radio 3, 8:15pm) takes as its subject Adolphe Sax (born 200 years ago). More Proms on Friday with more chance of some jazz – BBC Proms 2014 (Radio 3, 10:15pm) – features Paloma Faith, Urban Voices Collective and Guy Barker’s forty two piece orchestra. If you so choose, there is a simulcast (how American!) on BBC 4.

Thanks for the namecheck Russell! In retrospect, although I very much like my chosen track, it was perhaps a little KS - lite. Her playing shone through on the subseqent track "Gee Baby Ain’t I Good To You" though, from the album "Kath Meets Humph". Superb. I loved the anecdote about Kathy Stobart swearing as well.

Well Hugh, I'm listening to the program now and the track you selected has, apart from Kathy, another north east connection in the form of pianist Martin Blackwell who has a lengthy solo introduction. Martin was, for a time, resident at Newcastle's Change Is night club and a frequent buyer of jazz LPs from me when I worked in Windows music shop. Judging by his solo he listened and learned from those discs! He's still going strong in London. A great player.
