Bebop Spoken There

Gil Goldstein: "The first three days I was in Florida, I heard Jaco Pastorius play at a club in Fort Lauderdale, and then I heard Pat [Metheny] play in a class on jazz composition. My whole experience of the world changed in those three days." - (DownBeat, March 2020).

Ellington's Nutcracker Suite, the Aussie outback, Chicago's Jazz Age Art and Aycliffe Radio

Tonight's Radio 3 in Concert at 7:30pm presents the BBC National Orchestra of Wales conducted by David Danzmayr. The NOW can be heard performing Duke Ellington's Nutcracker Suite in a concert recorded during January. As the joke goes...more Ellington sugar rum cherry than Tchaikovsky sugar plum fairy!

Later in the week on Radio 3 (Saturday, midnight) Corey Mwamba's Freeness delves into improvisatory music's relationship with the Australian outback. Also featured is a duo set recorded by saxophonist Mette Rasmussen and guitarist Julien Desprez. 

Sunday evening's Shades of Black: The Art and Genius of Archibold Motley Jr (Radio 3, 6:45pm) could be interesting. This Sunday Feature documentary strand looks at an influential figure in the visual arts world - will jazz feature? Tune in to find out. 


Mike Dixon's Aycliffe Radio Jazz Time programme is broadcast at six o'clock every Sunday. Recently Ray Sams and Tony Eales have been Mike's studio guest talking about their love of jazz and the local jazz scene. This coming Sunday (Feb 9) the Tees Valley Jazzmen's Keith Belton will be in the spotlight. Tune in online at: www.ayclifferadio.co.uk
