Thursday : 8pm - 10pm
2 hours of jazz with Adrian Riley featuring new releases, certified classics and obscure gems with plenty local and British jazz in the mix. Plus weekly listings of where you can hear jazz live in the Yorkshire region and beyond. From bubbling bebop to frenetic funk, if it's jazzy and it grooves Adrian probably plays it.
Presented by: Adrian Riley
Adrian's love affair with jazz began as a child hearing an Amercian style 'drum corps' playing big band arrangements. He earnestly misspent the rest of his youth hitting, crashing and shaking various instruments to try recreate that magic whilst soaking up music shared between friends - exotic sounds such as the roaring brass of the Stan Kenton Orchestra, the screaming hammond of Jimmy Smith, the rumbustious rhythms of the Fania record label and the searching wail of John Coltrane. Adrian still hits, crashes and shakes things in various bands.
