London Jazz Festival Special

Kevin Le Genre presents live music from Terri Lyne Carrington, Julia Hülsmann, Angel Bat Dawid, and Rob Luft and Dave O'Higgins, recorded at this year's London Jazz Festival.

Kevin Le Genre presents four star acts from this year's London Jazz Festival bill, recorded live at the Royal Festival Hall's Clore Ballroom.

Terri Lyne Carrington was playing with Herbie Hancock and Pharoah Sanders when she was still in her early twenties and has since gone on to become one of the leading drummers and bandleaders of her generation. She performs music from her Grammy-winning album Money Jungle: Provocative in Blue.

Elsewhere, German pianist and ECM recording artist Julia Hülsmann plays a lyrical set; rising star UK guitarist Rob Luft teams up with saxophonist Dave O'Higgins to tackle the music of Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane; and Chicagoan multi-instrumentalist Angel Bat Dawid invites us to explore her extraordinary musical world.

Produced by Dominic Tyerman for Somethin’ Else.
