Calling his Children Home Most jazz historians believe that jazz started when the negro cornettist Buddy Bolden formed an untrained improvising band in turn-of-the-century New Orleans. The power and flair of his playing have become almost legendary. Yet, no recording of the band has ever been found.
Russell Davies presents a portrait of Bolden's life. including a reconstruction of how the band might have sounded.
With DON MARQUIS , RICHARD ALLEN. LIONEL CREMILLION and eye-witness accounts of Bolden from the William Ransom Hogan Jazz Archive
Musicians HUMPHREY LYTTELTON (cornet),
RUSSELL DAVIES (valve trombone), JOHNNY BARNES and BRUCE TURNER (clarinets), KEITH GRAVII. LE (guitar), COLIN BOWDEN (drums), JIM BRAY (bass)
Any jazz lover who mis-sed ... the broadcast, would be foolish to miss the inevitable repeat.

A dramatisation of PUSHKIN'S poetic novel, with music by PROKOFIEV
Written in 1936 for the Pushkin centenary celebrations, Prokofiev's score was withdrawn after Droduction difficulties. A Russian edition was published in 1973 with a drastically revised dramatic format but without three apparently lost numbers. These were relocated in 1978 and have been orchestrated by Edward Downes. This production recreated the score for the first time. Adapted by IAN COTTERELL and CLIVE BENNETT from the translation by SIR CHARLES JOHNSTON
