24 September 2004

Friday 24 September 2004 23:30-1:00 (Radio 3)

Tonight's Jazz on 3 features a live recording from earlier this year of alto saxophonist Greg Osby with his US quartet at London's Pizza Express. Osby was a leading figure in MBASE - New York's jazz movement of the eighties - where he established his reputation for a rich, passionate and rhythmically complex approach. Today he is signed to the legendary Blue Note label where over the last decade he has released a string of intensely creative albums. This gig finds him exploring a selection of newly arranged jazz standards.

He is joined by Megumi Yonezawa on piano, Matt Brewer on bass and Damion Reid on drums.

Presented by Jez Nelson.
