On this edition I reflect on the 2018 Jazzfest Berlin, one of the longest running Jazz Festivals in Europe founded 54 years ago with a mission to document, support and validate trends in Jazz and to mirror the diversity of creative musical activity with its 2018 focus on creative crossings and collective visions. And on this show you can hear contributions by the Mary Halvorson Quintet, Thumbscrew, Bill Frisell, Jaimie Branch, Moor Mother and the Irriversable Entanglements, Jazzmeia Horn 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.
