The Blueprint on Jazz FM Saturday October 28th 2017

This week I was joined by the hugely talented 16 year old South London composer, saxophonist and band leader Sam Barnett ahead of his debut at our monthly Jazz In The Round event at London’s Cockpit Theatre. I was also joined by North London-based pianist, composer and vocalist Joy Ellis who has just released a brilliant new album of originals called ‘Life On Land’. Joy also played live in session too!

Plus, there’s new music from Australian band Trichotomy live with strings (first UK air-play), Saxophonist Danny Janklow, Brian Blade and The Fellowship Band, Danish drummer Carsten Lindholm and a couple of heavyweight selections from a new compilation of Italian labels Soul Note and Black Saint put together by If Music head honcho Jean Claude Thompson.
