Regional Programme Northern

Everybody Swing!

An Anatomy of Jazz
The Brass talks
In the early jazz band brass instruments were generally played in a style of frank burlesque. Trumpet and trombone were made to howl and squawk and bray; brass players tended to pride themselves particularly upon the faithfulness of their jungle imitations. Reaction to the Dixieland technique was contemporaneous with the advent of larger orchestras.
The ' section ' made its first appearance in jazz just as the trumpet and trombone were temporarily under a cloud, so that for some years the saxophone section, with its capacity for purring sweetness, maintained priority. But presently when the reaction had vanished in its turn, it was realised that the prime quality in all jazz playing must be ' attack '.
Trumpet and trombone, now duplicated or triplicated into ' sections ', returned to favour. Certainly in the present-day orchestra no section exceeds the brass in importance, for reasons which may be clearer when you have heard HENRY REED AND HIS ORCHESTRA this evening.

Everybody Swing!

An Anatomy of Jazz
Let's go !
Controversy is still raging over the definition of Swing, and there are still people who don't understand the secondary meaning of ' going to town '.
HENRY REED AND HIS ORCHESTRA do not deal in definitions. They will give you Swing itself. And something more-they will show you the part played by each individual instrument in building up the Swing ensemble. At the end of this series, which starts tonight with a general introduction, we warrant you will be able to define Swing for yourselves

EVERYBODY SWING !'

An Anatomy of Jazz presented by Henry Reed and his Orchestra with Brent Wood
' Jam Session '
It is the jazz artist's supreme delight to join in a ' jam session '—that is an assembly of instrumentalists who, without prearranged plan or written music, play numbers familiar to all, a steady foundation being provided by the rhythm section while each soloist improvises. Everything depends- on the inspiration of the moment, so that a ' jam session is something of a gamble. But an anatomy of jazz would be incomplete if it did not include the experience. If the players feel in the mood, and we hope they will on this occasion, a ' jam session ' can work up ' swing ' in its most stimulating form.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
