Jazz Mine is a play on jasmine which is one possible originator in respect of JAZZ as a description of the music being featured on this weekly show. Jazz keeps developing so the intention is to keep the focus on newer stuff with many forays into the Jazz Mines to illustrate past jazz musical triumphs.

On this edition I pay tribute to baritone saxophonist, composer and arranger Gerry Mulligan on what would have been his 90th Birthday and you can hear a hand-picked selection of his work from the early days with Miles Davis's Birth of the Cool Nonet via his pianoless Quartet with Chet Baker and his Concert Jazz Band to his final recordings.

Remembering JERU, one of the greatest Jazz musicians ever lived.

In the 100th episode of Jazz Mine you can hear racks from Colette Cassidy & Nigel Clark with their new album “Confetti Falling In The Rain” as well as Al Jarreau, Christine Tobin, John Coltraine, Lou Donaldson and more.
