In this edition I am looking back at this year's Jazz Fest Berlin and play some of the appearing artists and groups who left a huge impression with their performances. You can hear music by John Beasley's Monk-estra, Empirical, Ingrid and Christine Jensen with Ben Monder, Michael Wollny, Dr,Lonnie Smith and Ambrose Akinmusire.
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.
