Jez Nelson presents a special live edition of Jazz on 3 from the 2015 Edinburgh Festivals, featuring musicians from Scotland and the north of England. Broadcast from the BBC's Potterrow site, the show features bassist Andy Champion, who performs with his prog-jazz outfit ACV (featuring pianist Matthew Bourne and guitarist Chris Sharkey among others), while reeds player Fraser Fifield and his trio evoke the Scottish folk music tradition.
Also in the line-up are a pair of duos: Edinburgh improvisers Emma Smith (bass) and Lauren Sarah Hayes (electronics), and Herschel 36, a drums and keys 'avantronica' outfit whose improvisations weave together electronica, breakbeats and noisy soundscapes.
Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producer: Chris Elcombe.
