Neil n’ Dud – the other side of Dudley Moore

Neil Cowley’s tribute to his hero Dudley Moore, with material from Jazz FM’s archive.

Neil Cowley is an award-winning jazz musician. He is also Dudley Moore’s number one fan.

Dudley was known mainly for his comedy and movie career, but actually he was more at home in front of a piano.

This is Neil Cowley’s revealing and personal insight into his hero, featuring music from Dudley’s many album releases plus anecdotes and stories alongside a good dollop of humour.

The programme also includes exclusive audio from a recently uncovered interview between Dudley and Jazz FM founder Dave Lee recorded for Christmas Day in 1990.
