Duration:
1 hour, 30 minutes
First broadcast:
Sunday 03 February 2013

Julian Joseph interviews extraordinary New York Jazz Singer Tessa Souter, quoted in the Boston Globe as "One of the finest and most fearless jazz vocalists to have emerged in recent years". Souter's own hauntingly evocative lyrics are set to exquisite classical melodies, and she is partnered with six of the jazz world's elite -- pianist Steve Kuhn's superlative trio with bassist David Finck and drummer Billy Drummond, vibraphone master Joe Locke, saxophonist Joel Frahm, and Gary Versace on accordion. Her new release "Beyond the Blue".
Julian talks to her prior to her Pizza Express Jazz Club visit on 9th February.
Also on the show, Julian features the 2nd part of a concert at Edinburgh's Jazz Bar with Phil Robson's Immeasurable Code, which was recorded last September.
