Friday 12 August 2005 23:30-1:00 (Radio 3)

Jez Nelson presents the third of a four-week season of Jazz on 3's most popular concerts of this year, as requested by listeners. This week, a rising star and three true legends of jazz in performance at the Barbican.

Pianist Herbie Hancock and saxophonist Wayne Shorter were band mates in Miles Davis' legendary quartet of the mid-sixties, and British-born bassist Dave Holland joined Miles in the late Sixties. Since then the three have won international acclaim as band leaders and remain among the best-loved jazz musicians anywhere in the world.

Teamed with Wayne Shorter's current drummer Brian Blade, this concert is a rare opportunity to witness such massed talent on one stage.
