Radio Russell: Paul Tips His Hat to Jack

Paul Jones’ weekly blues programme (seven o’clock, Mondays, Radio 2) is required listening. This coming week’s hour-long broadcast (Monday 1 December) is one for archivists of the British blues scene. Jones pays tribute to Jack Bruce. Unmissable.
Radio 3’s Hear and Now (10:00pm Saturday 27 November) includes a Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival commission – Twelve for Twelve Musicians – for Evan Parker to celebrate his seventieth year. The work will be a first performance by Evan Parker and ensemble. Earlier, at six o’clock, Jazz Line-Up celebrates a birthday. An octogenarian – Tony Coe – takes centre stage. And a young drummer with his career stretching out ahead of him – Ollie Howell – is heard in concert at this year’s London Jazz Festival. Preceding Jazz Line-Up at 5:00pm, this week’s Jazz Record Requests includes tracks by Jack Bruce and Acker Bilk.
Finally, at 4:30pm, Friday 5 December, Radio 3, In Tune will shoehorn Manchester’s RNCM Big Band into the studio. Small room, big band!
Russell.
