Sonny Clark Podcast

Jazz pianist and teacher Nick Tomalin, along with fellow pianist Simon Whiteside, has launched a new jazz podcast series called 2-5-1, Two pianists, Five Podcasts, One subject.

Their first subject is the jazz pianist Sonny Clark who, as readers of BSH's nightly Blue Note post will know recorded extensively for the label (and is the pianist on the Dexter Gordon album Go! which was last night's choice). 

Tomalin and Whiteside talk about his life, as well as examining his work in more detail both as a sideman and leader. They will also speak a bit more about his musical style with the help of some transcriptions they've done.

So far, two episodes of the podcast have been recorded and released  to hear them, here is the link.
