Barber follows your five o’clock appointment with Jazz Records Requests. Holiday Monday Jazz on 3 (11:00pm) reports from Jazzahead in Bremen. Wednesday’s Proms Plus Late (Radio 3, 10:00pm) presents a poet – Dominic Hale – and the Ashley Henry Trio. The AH3 (Leeds College of Music graduates) are Henry (piano), Simon Read (bass) and Sam Gardner (drums).
Moira Stuart’s Strong and Sassy – Inspiring Women of Jazz concludes with two icons in the spotlight (Carmen McRae and Sarah Vaughan) on Thursday evening over on Radio 2 at 10:00pm.
