21 October 2005

Friday 21 October 2005 23:30-1:00 (Radio 3)

Jez Nelson presents a solo concert recording by British saxophonist John Surman. One of the few British musicians who have made a career on the international stage, Surman has nevertheless maintained a style heavily rooted in the English folk and church music of his youth.

This concert sees him play a rare solo date originally broadcast only in part last March from Gateshead International Jazz Festival. It features his complete performance.
