This week, Jamie features one of his favourite British jazz bands, London-based modern jazz outfit Empirical. They perform some music from their latest record Elements of Truth, which was released last year.

The young quartet introduce the tracks, explaining how they take influences from outside jazz, and tell us why they love playing live.
