04 Jazz on a Clear Day

Broadcast September 28, 2014

The show was put together as a sequel to an earlier set called Mysty Jazz, and the title also borrows from the title of the classic  film of the Newport Jazz Festival of 1958, “Jazz on a Summers Day”.  The theme is live tracks, with an outdoors, festival feel and Cool, for the most part.

03 British Progressive Rock, pt. 1

Broadcast September 14, 2014.  Part 1 of several.

Prog, and especially Brit Prog is hard to pin down but is mostly characterised by quirky titles, odd time signatures, lots of improvisation and a tendency towards sly humour.  Sometimes it can go over the top a bit as well.  There will be more…

The playlist for our first show:  Titled “Introductions” it was, as you might expect, about introducing ourselves and the show.  All the tracks are either concert openers or first tracks from first albums.  Apart from “Listen To The Music” which is more of a gentle suggestion.
