On this edition I feature the music of Tadd Dameron the definitive composer and arranger of the Bop era and you can hear music by his Sextet featuring the legendary trumpeter Fats Navarro and others and by a selection of Jazz Greats who interpret his music and who bring it healthy into a new era and direction. Music by Dizzy Gillespie, Bill Evans, Chet Baker, Carmen McRae, John Coltrane, Dave Liebman, Ernie Watts 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.
