Adventures in Sound

Duration:
1 hour, 30 minutes
First broadcast:
Monday 18 November 2013

Jez Nelson presents highlights from Adventures In Sound, an afternoon of improvisation at the London Jazz Festival curated by Jazz on 3.

The event features short sets from established acts as well as one-off collaborations. This year's line-up includes British electronic improviser Leafcutter John; a rare UK performance by Dutch cellist Ernst Reijseger alongside pianist Harmen Fraanje and Mola Sylla on vocals and percussion; experimental Swiss vocalist Andreas Schaerer; a group led by drummer Jeff Williams and the Anton Hunter Trio. A guitarist from Manchester, Anton's spiky melodies and heavy riffs reveal his roots in experimental post-rock.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producers: Peggy Sutton and Chris Elcombe.
