Tales from the far Side 15.11.18 A Tribute to Roy Hargrove

On this edition I pay tribute to music and life of Roy Hargrove who sadly has passed away early this month deeply remembered with a selection of his wonderful music, from the early years as a sideman with Bobby Watson, his contributions as a leader of his own groups, with the Latin-Jazz outfit Crisol, his excursion into Hip Hop and R+B and as a leader of an impressive big band.

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.
