BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival: Jazz Record Requests

LIVE from Radio 3’s Pop Up Studio in Sage Gateshead

Sage Gateshead Concourse

Alyn Shipton brings the popular Radio 3 programme for a return visit to Sage Gateshead for a live edition exploring the idea of time in jazz.

Requests come from listeners and Free Thinking speakers and there’s live music from Newcastle based composer and pianist Paul Edis, performing material from his album There Will Be Time.

“A new voice in jazz…a real jazz composer…a very thoughtful improviser.” Andy Hamilton, Jazz Journal

Alyn Shipton is a jazz historian, broadcaster and author of many books about individual jazz musicians including the first full-length biography of Cab Calloway and A New History of Jazz.
