From New Orleans to Birmingham (Birmingham, England)

Your regular date with Paul Jones (Monday 29th September, Radio 2, 7:00pm) features a live session from Woody Mann and the New Yorker talks to Jones about his involvement in a film documentary – Harlem Street Singer – about the Rev Gary Davis. Tuesday’s In Tune (Radio 3, 4:30pm) includes a performance by Spanish jazz singer, trumpeter, saxophonist Andrea Motis and pianist Peter Edwards talks to Jamie Cullum (Radio 2, 7:00pm).
The Glenn Miller Story is hidden away on freeview channel 5USA on Wednesday afternoon (1:40pm). Reimagining the City (a repeat of a five part documentary, Monday to Friday, Radio 4, 11:30pm) is, ostensibly, nothing to do with jazz (a bit like Glenn Miller!) however, part one on Monday visits New Orleans and Friday’s concluding part visits Birmingham, presented by Soweto Kinch who grew up in a Brummie tower block.
