Tales from the far Side 11.02.21 Going Bassless

On this edition you can hear a handpicked selection of recordings without the String Bass, taking the new bassless albums of Trio Grande and Joe Lovano as an inspiration to dig into some ground-breaking recordings of the past, with contributions by Paul Motian, Benny Goodman, Lester Young, the Jimmy Giuffre 3, Michel Petrucciani's Power of Three, Ron Miles 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.
