Bebop Spoken There

Rickie Lee Jones: "There's lots of music and not so much celebrity. I guess I'll stay here [New Orleans] for a while if it doesn't get washed away in the flood." - (The Observer 18.04.21)

It's Monk Saturday (April 3)

Today's edition of J to Z (Saturday, 5:00pm, Radio 3) includes pianist Jason Moran choosing some of the music that inspires him, not least the compositions of Thelonious Monk. Later, at eight o'clock, Kansas Smitty's, online (Facebook and YouTube) will be playing Monk's Underground album. BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year Deschanel Gordon has been charged with the task of doing justice to Monk. Our man will rise to the occasion, no two ways about it! Alec Harper assumes the role of Charlie Rouse, Will Sach as Larry Gales, Will Cleasby steps into the shoes of Ben Riley and Ella Honen-Ford sings Jon Hendricks.
