Upton Jazz Festival!!

When we arrived to hitch up the studio to deploy to Upton the phrase, “perfect weather for caravans” was uttered but once we were on the road the clouds parted and the sun shone and we were on our way to the first live event with the mobile studio. A quick call to Longside’s resident […]

Hello. Longside Radio provides great entertainment 24/7 and part of the weekly proceedings I present 'The Jazz Hour', every Sunday night live, between 9 and with that little 'plug' out of the way...let me tell you what I have in store for you this week.

Willie 'The Lion' Smith, Scott Joplin and Teddy Wilson, all pianists in their own right, would all have celebrated a birthday over the past seven days and in recognition they go 'head to head' this week as I have tracks from all three.

Add to that the birthdays of cornetist Nat Adderley and alto saxophonist Paul Desmond (of Dave Brubeck fame), for some great jazz variety.

This being the last Sunday of November, I'll be bringing the curtain down on the November 'Album of the Month' and I'll be continuing with a new theme that started last week that looks at 'Big Bands and Orchestras'...all in the name of Jazz.

If you'd like to contribute to may have a request or dedication, you may have a jazz story to tell or you may just like to hear your name broadcast live on air...whatever the reason, you know I'd love to hear from email please to

Have a great weekend...and I do hope you'll join me on Sunday evening from 9pm, here on Longside Radio.

Take care of yourselves!!

'The Jazz Man'
