Hello. I do hope you'll tune in on Sunday evening here on Longside Radio for some great entertainment. Starting at 9pm, I'll be presenting the weekly 'Jazz Hour' and this week I have real mixed bag of music for you.

Stan Getz, Sonny Stitt and Eubie Blake get a musical 'airing' as they all would have celebrated a birthday over the past week.

I'll be taking a mini showcase profile look at the life and work of the British born alto saxophonist Ken Mackintosh, easily recognised as one of the most distinguished bandleaders of the 20th century.

This being the first Sunday of a new month, i'll be introducing a new 'Album of the Month' and it's the latest album from an exciting musician and vocalist all the way from Italy, Eleonora Claps and really good it is too.

and on the theme front I'll have more from a super album looking at jazz big bands and influential jazz guitarists.

So there you have it....I look forward to your company on Sunday evening.

Have a great weekend wherever you may be around the world and as always stay very safe!!

'The Jazz Man'
