Jazz on 3

Jez Nelson rounds up the best of the latest jazz CDs. The second in Jazz on 3's monthly series of specially recorded studio sessions documenting the cutting edge of contemporary jazz in Britain features the innovative Noh Ground. Formed about 18 months ago, Noh Ground is the latest project of Peruvian-born electric guitarist
Mano Ventura , who has been active on the British jazz scene for more than 20 years. The musicians - ex-Tackhead drummer Keith LeBlanc , Jason Yarde on soprano sax, and Nico Gomez on bass - are the ideal exponents of Ventura's music: Latin funk energy and beautiful melody. Producer Steve Shepherd

Central Avenue Sounds: Early Days
In the first of a new series, Alyn Shipton investigates the forgotten jazz scene of Central Avenue in Los Angeles. From the twenties until the fifties, Central Avenue was the jazz capital of the West Coast. But then its theatres and clubs closed and all signs of its rich musical heritage disappeared. Historian Steve Isoardi sets the political and social background, and authors Phil Pastras and Floyd Levin look back at the pioneering music of Kid Ory, Jelly Roll Morton and Paul Howard. And saxophonist Vi Redd remembers the lively Creole community which kept Louisiana customs alive in the West when jazz first arrived in California.

Jazz on 3

With Jez Nelson. Scotland's trio AAB is the innovative group comprising brothers Phil and Tom Bancroft and guitarist Kevin MacKenzie. Drummer Tom and guitarist Phil are leading figures on the Scottish jazz scene and have performed with top players on the American and European jazz circuit, including the Sun Ra
Arkestra, Joey Baron and Kenny Wheeler. Their own music incorporates diverse influences, from Celtic folk to Ornette Coleman - as evinced by their recently released CD Cold Fusion on their own Caber
Music label. Tonight's concert was recorded last month in Glasgow's Royal Concert Hall.

Jazz on 3

Tonight, Jazz on 3 begins a series of monthly sessions featuring the best music being made on the UK jazz scene. Following the success of his drummer-less quartet which produced the bestselling Angel Song album, trumpeter Kenny Wheeler continues his exploration of unusual instrumental combinations in the company of two other equally innovative players - guitarist John Parricelli and flautist/saxophonist Stan Sulzmann. Released from the restraints of a rhythm section, each instrument takes chances with melody, rhythm and form, producing music that is fluid and diverse. There is also a preview of saxophonist
Steve Coleman 's new album, plus the second in the series of tributes to Duke Ellington, and Jez Nelson 's monthly roundup of new releases.

Jazz on 3

Niels Lan Doky.
Danish pianist Niels Lan Dokywas something of a prodigy. At the age of 17, trumpeter Thad Jones took him under his wing and encouraged Niels to study at Boston's Berklee College of Music. Niels quickly moved to New York and immersed himself in the jazz scene playing alongside greats such as Joe Henderson , Clark Terry and Charlie Haden. Tonight, in performances from a recent concert at Ronnie Scott's club in London, Niels plays music from his latest recording, Asian Sessions, which explores the relationship of Vietnamese and Chinese music with jazz.
Producers Steve Shepherd and Kathryn Willgress






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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
