Jez Nelson presents a session from composer and improviser Veryan Weston's nine-piece vocal group Vociferous.

Vociferous brings together nine singers from Austria, Serbia and Armenia with skills as varied as Swiss yodelling, beat-boxing and South Indian vocal techniques. They perform Weston's Tessellations II, which is based on a sequence of 52 closely related pentatonic scales, with the spirit and energy of jazz and improvisation at its core.

Plus Veryan Weston and jazz writer Kevin le Gendre join Jez in the studio for a round up of the latest CD releases.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producer: Rebecca Aitchison.
