The Essay: Jazz among the British

Broadcaster Geoffrey Smith begins a new five part series this evening on Radio 3. American Smith settled in Britain nearly half a century ago and for many years presented Jazz Record Requests, topping and tailing the programme in his inimitable drawl with Hello! and Goodbye!
 In the network's The Essay strand Smith offers an outsider's view of jazz in Britain. In tonight's first installment, On Not Being a Jazzer, our presenter examines the term 'jazzer' and its jokey connotations. Future programmes consider Duke Ellington and Stan Tracey before ending the week reflecting on Sonny Rollins at the age of ninety. Mon-Thurs 10:45pm, Friday 9:45pm
