Just been catching up with Christmas Day's BBC radio 3 JRR on i-player.
A Christmas themed programme with lots of goodies. Sidney Bechet, Paul Desmond, Sonny Rollins, Dexter Gordon among the requested sax players. There's some Miles Davis, Fats Waller, Roland Kirk (in authentic New Orleans clarinet mode, which I've not hear from him before) and a Wayne Shorter solo as well.
Worth a trawl through. It's on i-player all this week.

Sounds a lot better than Swing prog the TV put out. Good musicians but no soul but really impressed by the Nelson Riddle pinch with that descending arpeggio starting from the screamer trumpet. Will stay away from the replay.

Yes, I agree. The clarionettist was OK, but you're right, a bit sterile. A triumph of production values over musical ones.
