Bebop Spoken There

Monty Alexander: "I was playing what I liked. It was an era [1980s] when jazz still had that 'street corner' vitality to it." - (DownBeat March 2021)

Radio Russell: The Sound of Cinema, Somerset Blues and Car Horns

Film of the moment Whiplash is included in Matthew Sweet’s selection of ‘jazz-inspired film music’ in Sound of Cinema (Radio 3, Saturday 17 January, 4:00pm). Justin Hurwitz, composer, is in good company with Alex North’s score for A Streetcar Named Desire on the playlist.
Shabaka Hutchings plays some of his favourite South African jazz tracks and his band the Blue Notes can be heard in concert at last year’s London Jazz Festival on Jazz Line-Up at 9:00pm (Radio 3). Earlier, on Radio 4 (2:30pm) tune in to hear the ‘blues-infused musical fairy tale’ Drama: Kneehigh’s The Wild Bride. Carl Grose’s play adapted for radio by the playwright and Emma Rice features music written by Stu Barker. Jez Nelson’s Jazz on 3 (Monday, Radio 3, 11:00pm) could be a good listen with a set recorded at London’s Café Oto featuring John Dikeman, Hamid Drake and William Parker. A similarly good listen could be Somerset Blues: The Story of Acker Bilk (Tuesday, Radio 2, 10:00pm). Actor and singer Clarke Peters presents a one hour tribute to the man from the West Country. Radio 3’s In Tune invariably has some jazz content from week to week and Thursday’s edition, 4:30pm, finds Empirical performing live in the studio. Gershwin’s Horns promises to be an oddity. BBC Radio 4 Extra, Friday (8:30pm) looks at An American in Paris. Gershwin and car horns…beep, beep!
