Jazz Matters September 2023

 Welcome to the first Jazz Matters show, the response to my Jazz Matters mixes was overwhelming, so I've decided to make it into a monthly show.

Jazz is the music that has a special place in my musical heart and this monthly show will lean heavily into Jazz with occasional musical excursions into other genres.

The music I select for you will be unlike anything else you’ll hardly hear elsewhere, my playlists are always uncompromising, bold and sometimes challenging, often changing in tempo and style to avoid getting stuck into the same groove. Bringing together the music I think the world needs to hear and that mainstream music channels so often overlook.

Please feel free to contact me with any comments or suggestions.
