On this edition I feature the trombone in the development of Jazz, from the pioneering Bebop playing of J.J.Johnson and others to its modern contemporary sound. Music by J.J. Johnson, Kai Winding, Benny Green, Willie Dennis, Steve Turre, Wycliffe Gordon, Michael Dease and Nick Finzer.
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.
