Paint me like one of your French caravans…

Hello...Well it's a first for me this week as I'll be presenting 'The Jazz Hour' live from the 'Upton Jazz Festival' here in Worcestershire, UK from 9pm, on my very first outside broadcast...so why not come along and say hello.

The music this week comes from some of the bands and artists that have performed at the festival, plus Worcestershires very own the 'Blue Monday Jazz Quartet' who can add the Upton Jazz Festival to a growing list of venues of live performances over recent years.

The birthday of the American saxophonist Eric Dolphy is recognised this week and I'll be continuing the themes featuring Robert Glasper and music from artists who performed during the war years given that this year we are recognising the 70th anniversary of VE day.

I'll be 'bringing the curtain down' on a super 'Album of the Month' featuring 'The Bateman Brothers', Ian and Alan that is, supported by some great musicians...and a really good album it is too.

I'll have details of the up and coming 'Birmingham Jazz and Blues Festival' and an opportunity for you to get involved..so there you have it. If you are at the Upton Jazz Festival on Sunday please drop by and say hello...I'd love to meet you.

Have a great weekend

Alun
'The Jazz Man'
