Playing tracks by
Kenny Clarke-Francy Boland Big Band, Sonny clark, Shelly Manne & His Men, John Coltrane, Mike Taylor and more.
A show of Dukes, Blues and Clark(e)s but mostly dominated by Ampersands, from the electric fusion of Jean-Luc Ponty & George Duke to the fiercely-driven ensemble playing of the Kenny Clarke & Francy Boland Big Band. As if that weren’t enough, there’s the cool sound of Rosemary Clooney (singing with Duke Ellington) to contrast with the blistering live sound of Britain’s own Don Rendell & Ian Carr Quintet.
Modern jazz, be-bop and jazz fusion. From Blue Note to the present day and right across the world.
