Playing tracks by
Neil Ardley , Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers, Miles Davis, George Gershwin, Ian Carr & Don Rendell Quintet and more.
George Gershwin makes a rare personal appearance on the show - courtesy of a piano roll which he ‘recorded’ in 1926 of one of his own tunes. Flying the flag for Britain, we have Neil Ardley’s Balinese-flavoured fusion masterpiece ‘Kaleidoscope of Rainbows’ and the effortless club-cool atmosphere of ‘Ruth’ from the Ian Carr/Don Rendell Quintet. All this plus classic music from Miles Davis, Art Blakey, Sonny Rollins and Keith Jarrett.
Modern jazz, be-bop and jazz fusion. From Blue Note to the present day and right across the world.
