Tales from the far Side 28.02.19 The Sound of the Baritone Saxophone

On this edition I explore the magic sound of the Baritone Saxophone in modern contemporary Jazz with contributions by Hamiet Bluiett and his Baritone Nation, James Carter, Gary Smulyan, Claire Daly and Brian Landrus, with Jeru nodding his head and showing his respect from high up.

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.
