About the show
Playing tracks by
Eric Legnini, Bill Frisell, Neil Cowley Trio, OCDC, Hidden Orchestra and more.
According to Legendary John Hellier: "Modernism...The real thing! Jazz has been there since day one. It's not just the roots it's the way forward as well. Try telling that to the thousands of young Weller clones in the UK that think it all began with "In The City" !
It's not only a jazz compilation, it's a modern one. Be brave, try it. Today, we have a brilliant generation of Jazzmen, coming from different cultures: jazz but also pop and rock music, Beatles... OCDC is a part of Portishead, Cowley plays with Adele, Corrina Greyson, Bill Frisell plays Lennon. Pop, jazz, who cares? They also come from the classical universe. They know how to make it groovy, sexy, jazzy. They’re French, Eric Legnini, Erik Truffaz (Weller would probably love him), Welsh like the awesome Gwilym Simcock, whatever? Also discover Edouard Ferlet who plays Bach in a Jazz way or brilliant Laurent De Wilde’s music. Enjoy. Ask references if you need it. [email protected]
