Lea DeLaria/Cheltenham Jazz Festival

To coincide with the 14th Annual Cheltenham Jazz Festival, artistic director Tony Dudley Evans chats with Julian Joseph about the 2009 highlights, including trumpeter Hugh Masekela, guitarist Pat Matino, clarinetist Don Byron and drummer Jack DeJohnette. Also in the studio is vocalist Lea DeLaria who appears at the festival with her cool swing and Broadway approach to jazz.

And as part of Radio 3's Handel celebrations, New Generation Artist Gwilym Simcock gives an improvised piano solo on a theme written by the great composer.
