On this week's edition I feature baritone Saxophonist Gerry Mulligan in a selection of his recordings with some of the greatest figures in Jazz history, meeting Lionel Hampton, Ben Webster, Chet Baker, Thelonious Monk. Paul Desmond, Astor Piazzolla, Harry Carney along this journey, a most exciting musical conversation of Gerry's baritone with the vibraphone, the tenor, the alto, the trumpet, the piano and the bandoneon. Tune in, invite a friend and take part at these extraordinary meetings with your suggestions for more.
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.
