Joe Lovano and Hank Jones

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

On tonight's Jazz on 3, Jez Nelson presents an evening of laid-back classics recorded just a few weeks ago at the Barbican Hall in London.

Alongside the likes of Branford Marsalis and Michael Brecker, Joe Lovano is lauded as a candidate for the title of best jazz saxophonist in the world. He's certainly the fans' and connoisseurs' favourite, a fact borne out by the warm and enthusiastic reaction he received from the Barbican audience.

For this concert he was joined by a quartet of fine pedigree: Hank Jones on piano, George Mraz on bass and Dennis Mackrel on drums. At 83, Hank is the oldest surviving member of the remarkable Jones brothers jazz family. Trumpeter Thad and drummer Elvin - whose death was announced only a few months ago - are his much-mourned siblings.

The quartet returned to the ever-fertile soil of the jazz standard, celebrated on Lovano's latest album I'm All For You, and they also paid moving tribute to the memory of Elvin Jones, performing music from the drummer's repertoire.

Also in the programme, Jez will be announcing the results of the BBC Jazz Awards, which took place yesterday evening, and playing music from some of the winners.
