On this edition I would like to show that , from the early years to our modern times, Jazz has and will alway ignore political, social, religious, cultural and linguistic boundaries and speaks to the listener IN ALL LANGUAGES in a spirit of openness and inclusion. Jazz simply learns us a lesson: that people and societies are at their most peaceful when they tolerate each other and work together. Music by Wolfgang Puschnig, Jelly Roll Morton, Charlie Parker, Machito, Dizzy Gillespie, Chano Pozo, Gerry Mulligan, Astor Piazolla, Abdullah Ibrahim, Jan Garbarek and the Indo-Pak Coaltion deliver the soundtrack for this mission.
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.
