Bebop Spoken There

Brian Dee: "I feel my generation had one advantage over today's players in that we were not musically educated in colleges, so we all sounded different. I could tell who it was just by the sound." - (Jazz Rag, Summer 2020).

Hersch, Montague & Taylor

Familiar names pop up across BBC Radio today (Saturday) starting at lunchtime as Soweto Kinch talks Music Life: the influence of Family on the World Service (12:05pm). From his Pennsylvania home pianist Fred Hersch performs an exclusive lockdown session for J to Z (Radio 3, 5:00pm) and at eight o'clock this evening over on Radio 2 Jamie Cullum's at Home Cheltenham Special features music from artists who were scheduled to appear this weekend at the spa town's annual jazz festival. At 9:00pm there is, in classic BBC-speak, another chance to hear Randy Crawford in concert at 2018's Cheltenham Jazz Festival. 


Last, but by no means least, two local lads (that's local to Tyneside) feature on Corey Mwamba's Freeness (midnight, Radio 3). Gateshead guitarist Chris Montague can look forward to hearing a track from his new album hitting the airwaves and Newcastle's improvising pianist Paul Taylor (pictured) contributes a solo piece.
