Listen to the Epic (Hype?)

BBC Music Jazz, the digital pop-up radio station on air during last year’s London Jazz Festival, featured a live broadcast of Kamasi Washington’s much anticipated concert. Today (Saturday) Julian Joseph replays the event on Jazz Line-Up (Radio 3, 5:00pm). Tune in and judge for yourself – real deal or no deal? At midnight the ‘real deal’ Wes Montgomery is the subject of Geoffrey Smith’s Jazz, also on Radio 3.
Dave and Judith O’Higgins are guests of Clare Teal at 9:00pm, Sunday over on Radio 2. Retune to Jazz on 3 Radio 3 at 11:00pm on Monday to hear more from the London Jazz Festival as Jez Nelson introduces American trumpeter Christian Scott.
