On this edition I have a first glimpse at the vibration contemporary Jazz scene of Detroit, featuring musicians who are born there, shaped the scene and are involved in education. And you can hear music by Marcus Belgrave, Lawrence Williams, James Carter, Geri Allen, Gerald Wilson, Rodney Whitaker and many 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.
