Jazz in the Round: 2014 EFG London Jazz Festival

Jez Nelson presents highlights from a 2014 EFG London Jazz Festival edition of the Jazz in the Round event, featuring clarinettist Oran Etkin and British septet Quadraceratops.

Highlights from a special EFG London Jazz Festival edition of Jez Nelson's barrier-busting, monthly Jazz In The Round event.

Joining Jez at Southbank Centre's Clore Ballroom are acts that represent the best in both international and homegrown talent at the festival. British band of the moment Roller Trio perform material from their new album 'Fracture', drawing on rock, electronica and hip-hop, while US clarinettist Oran Etkin is joined in a quartet featuring guitarist Federico Casagrande, bassist Linda Oh and drummer Jeff Ballard - watch out for a set of squelchy grooves and earthy bass clarinet sounds. Also over from the States is violinist Regina Carter performing a rare solo set. And getting things started, a band first discovered by Jazz on 3 via the BBC Introducing Uploader - young British septet Quadraceratops led by altoist Cath Roberts. The band performs music from their recent self-titled debut, embracing lush horn arrangements and clever rhythmic writing.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producer: Chris Elcombe.
