Tales from the far Side 31.08.2017 Tribute to John Abercrombie

On this edition I pay tribute to music and life of the late great Jazz Guitarist John Abercrombie who sadly died on the 22nd of August at the age of 72. This versatile and inventive guitarist explored Jazz-Fusion, Jazz-Rock, Post-Boop and Free-Avantgarde and created a patchwork of many colours, which made him to one of the most influential acoustic and electric Jazz guitarists of our time.

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.

A day without Jazz is boring!
