On this edition I'ld like to pay tribute to trombonist SLIDE HAMPTON who sadly died last November but who thankfully left us a huge treasure trove of his music.
Always remembered SLIDE !!!!!
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.
