Tales from the far Side 23.08.18 A Portrait of the NDR Bigband

Over the last 7 decades the NDR Big Band has developed from a Radio Dance Orchestra to one of the world's leading Jazz Big Bands, their music explored and celebrated with a blast from the early days and a couple of highlights captured along their musical journey collaborating with the Who's Who in Jazz, including music and arrangements by Dieter Glawischnig, Michael Gibbs, Bill Frisell, Nils Wogram, Omar Sosa, Colin Towns and others.

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.
