Sunday Jazz Lounge with Doug Kaye and Natalia Farran

March 18, 2018


In today's programme the star instrument is the vibraphone (commonly known as vibes), an instrument with a unique mellow tone, a combination of percussion and melody which works especially well in the jazz language.
The vibraphone was invented in America in 1921 by Hermann Winterhoff of the Leedy Drum Co. and was almost immediately put to use by dance band and jazz musicians. Starting in the 1930s, a few orchestral composers started to occasionally incorporate it in their works. Like other keyboard percussion instruments, it requires a level of specialisation on the part of the performer to play well, and not every percussionist can be expected to be proficient on it. In the jazz idiom, a few players in particular have elevated the vibraphone to the status of a solo instrument, Milt Jackson and Lionel Hampton being two good examples.
We have some fantastic, diverse tracks that include vibes as the main instrument and as accompaniment. This show features artists such as Milt Jackson, Mike Mainieri, Lionel Hampton, Tubby Hayes, Gary Burton, Astrud Gilberto, Grant Green, Miles Davis, Bobby Hutcherson, Roy Ayers, Stan Getz and Herbie Mann.
Also on this show: Natalia sends us a fascinating interview with Phil Phillips, a British pianist and singer, excellent accompanist and composer, who has been working around the world since his teens and is still delighting audiences with his renditions of classic Latin and jazz numbers - as well as original compositions - and his extraordinary charisma and savoir faire.
What other skills did Sammy Davis Jr. have as well as singing? What do Juan Perón and Ava Gardner have in common? Is it true that Tubby Hayes and Ronnie Scott were "rock and roll sinners"? What's the link between Phil and Natalia's father? Phil's experience encompasses so much, from playing in jazz clubs in early 1960s Spain to becoming resident pianist at The Talk of the Town in London, surrounded by international celebrities such as Diana Ross and Judy Garland, plus a long and fruitful career on British television working with the likes of Bruce Forsyth and Ronnie Corbett. All this - and much, much more - in this month's exclusive interview.
Sadly, due to technical problems, we couldn't play his songs, but we hope to be able to do so in a forthcoming show.
We'll also remember special jazz birthdays in our new section.
We hope you enjoy the show!
With thanks to Jane Winterbottom.

The Sunday Jazz Lounge with Doug Kaye

February 18, 2018


In this the first edition of Sunday Jazz Lounge in 2018, Natalia interviews acclaimed pianist, producer, singer and composer Ben Sidran in Madrid during his annual week-long engagement at the Cafe Central. Ben has recorded more than thirty solo albums, including the Grammy-nominated Concert for García Lorca, and produced recordings for such noted artists as Van Morrison, Diana Ross, Michael Franks, Rickie Lee Jones, Mose Allison and Steve Miller (with whom he co-wrote the hit song “Space Cowboy”). He is a film composer (Hoop Dreams, amongst others) and has authored two excellent books on the subject of jazz: Black Talk, a cultural history of the music, and Talking Jazz, a series of conversations with inspirational musicians. He continues to record, write, produce and tour the world. We will hear Ben’s thoughts on press and television, find out why the most revolutionary thing in the world is feeling good, his experiences at University in Brighton in the 1960s, his secrets as an interviewer, how working with musicians around the world has impacted his sound…and many other wonderful visionary nuggets of wisdom and humour. Accompanying him is his son Leo Sidran, a very successful drummer, singer, songwriter, composer and producer. Join us for champagne and jazz talk in a Madrid hotel room!

You will also hear a selection of fantastic tracks, in this edition focused around jazz pianists, including Ray Charles, Thelonious Monk, Oscar Peterson, Dave Brubeck, Nat Cole, Martial Solal, Jutta Hipp and many other stars of the jazz firmament. Last but not least, in this show we will remember the extraordinary British pianist John "Critch" Critchinson, who left us recently... a great loss for British jazz.

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.
