Alan Plater's Jazz Story

2 hours
First broadcast:
Sunday 16 March 2014

Alan Plater wrote about the Seven Ages of Jazz. Alan Barnes wrote the music and assembled a cast of top British musicians to record it. In this programme we hear another track and it's the one where the bar has to close and it is time to go home! Also there's jazz from the Crane River Jazzband, Roy Hargrove, Howard Rumsey, Jimmy Cleveland, Pete Cater and John Horler and more plus a very busy list of live jazz gigs.
