Claire Martin talks to saxophonist and composer Tim Whitehead about his latest project, responding to sketches of JMW Turner. Plus a concert by bassist and vocalist Nicola Farnon.
Jazz Line-Up this week interviews saxophonist and composer Tim Whitehead about his latest project "Colour Beginnings", responding to the colour sketches of the painter JMW Turner.
Tim was appointed "Artist in Residence" at Tate Britain where he explored in depth the work of this great painter. Tim has had a lifelong love of painting and visual art, both as an observer and practitioner and has a strong tonal and textural relationship between these inspirational works and sound in music.
Also on Jazz Line-Up this week is bassist and vocalist Nicola Farnon now making Sheffield her home and in demand in the Northwest Jazz circuit and beyond. With her unique talent as swinging vocalist and double bass player she has accumulated many years of experience and performed with some of the worlds top musicians. Jazz Line-Up recorded Nicola at this year Jazz on a Winter's Weekend in Southport and she brings us a mix of standards and originals.
