Tales from the far Side 10.09.2019 The Sonny Lester Collection

On this edition I feature music produced and released by Sonny Lester who was at the helm of the 60s and 70s most significant music promotion and production which resulted in the release of numerous marvellous albums by the leading Jazz artists of that time. And you can hear music from Eddie Lockjaw Davis, Sonny Stitt, the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra, Bill Evans, Jim Hall, Jimy McGriff, Lucky Tompson, Harry Sweets Edison 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.
