Finn Peters interview

57 minutes
First broadcast:
Tuesday 25 September 2012

Jamie is joined by one of his favourite jazz artists, the composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Finn Peters.

They discuss the adventure and inventiveness in Finn's music, from being brought up in a house with a recording studio and his love of Charlie Parker, through to his involvement in the acid jazz movement.

Finn also talks about his recent experiments turning his own brain waves into jazz music, and what projects he's got coming up next.
