Jazz Notes

on BBC Radio 3

In this special New Year's Eve edition of Jazz Notes,
Digby Fairweather hosts a jazz party live from Ronnie Scott 's in Birmingham, featuring King Pleasure and the Biscuit Boys on stage. Now one of the most popular acts in Britain, the group started life in the early eighties, following a conversation among schoolfriends in a Walsall coffee bar. They now have five top-selling albums behind them and a string of rave reviews. They have a reputation for lively performances, complemented by an impressive instrumental ability in the style of Louis Jordan.
