Alyn Shipton presents a selection of listeners' jazz requests, including tracks by Red Nichols, Miff Mole, the Modern Jazz Quartet and Joel Brandon.

Alyn Shipton selects music from listeners' letters, tweets and emails, including hot jazz suggestions, first experiences of jazz and unusual instruments. This week, the choices range from Red Nichols and Miff Mole in 1920s New York via the suave counterpoint of the Modern Jazz Quartet to the avant garde jazz whistling of Joel Brandon.
