On the 90th, birthday of Burt Bacharach we salute his song writing in a mini tribute on this edition.
Artists on Jazz Mine this time include Jack Jones, Jerry Butler, Georgie Fame, Booker Little, Joe Gordon, Joe Lovano, Canadian vocalist Johanna Sillanpaa, George Russell, Aerie & the recently deceased Bob Dorough...........Saturdays 5PM on dublincityfm.ie.
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.
I hope that you can join me on this ongoing voyage & that you email, Facebook & Twitter communications will bring me down new shafts as we explore the MINE that comprises JAZZ in all its shapes & sizes.
Jazz Mine is aired on Dublin City FM 103.2 on Saturdays at 5 – 6pm
