On this edition I have a look at some Afro-American Saxophonists who settled and worked in Europe where they left their marks on a new generation of musicians who established Jazz on the European continent. And you can hear the music of Lucky Thompson, Sidney Bechet, Coleman Hawkins, Dexter Gordon, Don Byas, Johnny Griffin and their sidemen.
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.
