On this edition I salute one of the Beatles groundbreaking album and celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Sgt.Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band with a selection of tracks from the album covered, rearranged and recorded by Jazz artists. You camn hear Bill Frisell, the Count Basie Orchestra, Django Bates and the Frankfurt Big Band, Collin Towns and the NDR Big Band, Wes Montgomery, Brad Mehldau and David Liebman. Quite a "jazzy" Hearts Club Band.

TALES FROM THE FAR SIDE is live on air on CRC102.9fm and on www.crcfm.ie every Thursday 8-9 pm with a repeat on Saturday 9-10 pm. And there is a podcast of the show available on the web site all through the week. The show has established itself over the years with a small but devoted listenership (even beyond Jazz-fans) and since the introduction on internet the listenership extended nationally and internationally.
