Jez Nelson and Jon Newey select their favourite new releases on vinyl and pay tribute to pianist Paul Bley, who died in January.
Jez Nelson is joined by Jazzwise Magazine's Jon Newey for a vinyl special, including brand new LP releases from Matthew Bourne, Phronesis and GoGo Penguin. Also in the programme, The Bad Plus' Ethan Iverson pays tribute to Canadian pianist Paul Bley.
A jazz luminary and lifelong innovator, Bley cut his teeth playing with greats such as Charlie Parker and Charles Mingus, collaborated with Ornette Coleman in the early days of free jazz and became one of the most distinctive and influential voices on the avant-garde scene. He died last month at the age of 83.
