Bebop Spoken There

Dave Holland: "Back then, one of my first gigs was with Wally Fawkes and Johnny Parker at the Crown and Anchor in Islington, playing music that went back to the days of King Oliver. And I've always enjoyed the joyousness of that music, and the sound of everybody fitting together beautifully, improvising together." - Jazzwise, August 2021.

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.
