On this edition I have a first glimpse at the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival 2018 and I feature some of the appearing artists, getting ready for an exciting and colourful weekend of high-class Jazz . And here you can hear some of its highlights, the Maria Schneider Orchestra, TS Monk, Billy Cobham, Billy Childs, Nnenna Freelon, Donny McCaslin and many more to come next week.
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.
