Bebop Spoken There

KT Reeder: "The idea of teaching somebody to improvise is just bloody ridiculous. In this country jazz has been appropriated by universities. They have jazz courses, and they churn out people who have a degree in jazz, which makes me feel very nauseous, the idea that you can be trained to do jazz." - (Giant Steps by David Burke)

Glaswegian Hoochie Coochie Men

In January Hoochie Coochie will welcome back the James Taylor Quartet. As a foretaste, tune in to Jazz Line-Up tomorrow (Saturday) at five o’clock to hear the band in concert at this year’s Glasgow Jazz Festival and Sebastian Scotney reports from Birmingham on the jazz  scene in England’s second city. Also on Radio 3 (midnight Saturday), John Coltrane is in the spotlight on Geoffrey Smith’s Jazz.
Paul Jones (Monday, Radio 2, 7:00pm) should be a good one. Renowned label boss Mike Vernon will be in the studio to play – yes, play – some blues! At eleven o’clock Jazz on 3 over on Radio 3 celebrates fifty years of the AACM. And on Wednesday’s Front Row on Radio 4 (7:15pm) there’s an item on Wynton Marsalis’ violin concerto written especially for Nicola Bendetti. And on BBC2, Wednesday 11:15pm, Len Goodman’s Dancing Feet: the British Ballroom Story is a swift repeat of a programme first broadcast on BBC 4 that takes a look at the heyday of ballroom dancing.
