Sunday Jazz Lounge 26/11/2017

November 26, 2017


In this edition of Sunday Jazz Lounge, Natalia Farran and Doug Kaye converse with Ramón Farrán, Natalia’s father. The Spanish jazz legend will regale us with anecdotes about his experiences playing drums with the likes of Frank Sinatra, Chet Baker, Don Byas and Sonny Rollins; how he knocked on the door of Ronnie Scott’s asking to play with him as a teenager; how he started the bebop jazz movement with his school friends in Franco's Spain, where imported music was illegal; how he read music before words; and we’ll even hear about him rewriting the Muskerhounds’ TV theme tune. All of this, plus a fabulous soundtrack - this time focusing on big bands -  with artists including Tubby Hayes, Sonny Rollins, Artie Shaw, Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra, Nelson Riddle, Harry James, Duke Ellington, Don Byas, Lionel Hampton, Joe Henderson and Chet Baker.

An enlightening, entertaining and educational programme… don’t miss this spectacular edition of Sunday Jazz Lounge!
