Mixing It will be at this year's London Jazz Festival, which takes place next month, and one of the events we'll be recording is Matthew Herbert's food project.
Here's your chance to be a part of it: On the 21st of October as part of Apple Day, a celebration of apples, orchards and local distinctiveness, Matthew Herbert requires 65 people to appear, apple in hand, at the Dairy Studios in Brixton, South London between 3 and 8.
There, they will be recorded one by one, taking a single bite from their apple. The apple should only be British, organic if possible, and preferably a rare British variety.
The recording will be used on his new record and as part of the London Jazz Festival show next month.
