Preview: Simply Jazz (Feb. 2)

This week's edition of Simply Jazz on Siren Radio looks forward to Sunday's live stream from Ronnie Scott's. Presenter Tom Stevens previews the Craig Wild Big Band in concert from Frith Street, London. The evening (Feb 7) will take the form of a Maynard Ferguson-Alan Downey tribute concert.
