Tales from the far Side 13.12.18 Remembering Randy Weston

On this edition I remember the work and life of pianist Randy Weston who sadly passed away in September but who thankfully left some wonderful music behind and I am looking back at his extraordinary career as one of the most visionary Jazz pianists and composers of our time, deeply inspired by his ancestral African connection, which he integrated with the ground-breaking ideas of Bebop created by his idol and influence Thelonious Monk.

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.
