Soweto Kinch presents a concert from London's Milton Court by the quartet featuring Swedish pianist Bobo Stenson and British saxophonist Martin Speake. Stenson has a glittering career including not only his own recordings for ECM, but work with Jan Garbarek and Tomasz Stanko. He and Martin talk to Jazz Now's Al Ryan about improvising and the art of playing in duo. Emma Smith meets guitarist Femi Temowo, to hear about his current work with the award-winning Engines Orchestra, and she chats to Tori Freestone about her new album El Barranco.
