In a live edition from Sage Gateshead for the 2015 Free Thinking Festival, Alyn Shipton presents listeners' requests. With music by Barbara Thompson and Henry Grimes.

Alyn Shipton is joined by listeners who introduce their own requests for music that tears up the rule book in a live edition of the programme from Sage Gateshead as part of Radio 3's Free Thinking weekend. There'll be music from all eras of jazz, including pieces that challenge our ideas from fusion saxophonist Barbara Thompson and bass playing legend Henry Grimes.
