As a teenager, she was heavily influenced by Ray Charles, Nina Simone, Muse and Tom Waits, this fed into her interest in jazz as a vocalist as well as piano player. From the age of 17 she started writing her own songs to help her get through the bullying she went through at school. She then went on to study Pop Composition and Jazz vocals at Leeds College of Music from 2014-2017 for which she graduated with First honours. Today we feature her new album, Shadow Boxing. PROSTATE CANCER: REAL TALK™A supportive community of prostate cancer survivors...Listen on: Apple Podcasts   SpotifySupport the show

Michael Wolff

Michael Wolff

2022-04-2550:08

In the summer of 2015, a grueling and often bewildering four-year battle with a rare cancer had the acclaimed pianist-composer Michael Wolff on the ropes. He’d fallen into a coma at a New York hospital, and the prognosis had moved from doubtful to defeated. His sons Nat and Alex, in the midst of their ascent as two of the most talented actors of their generation, had returned home to be with their father and try to comfort him. They played guitars and sang at his bedside, tapping into the sweet, winsome gifts that had made the Wolffs a famous musical family nearly a decade earlier, via the hit TV series The Naked Brothers Band. At one point, as Wolff was being cared for by his wife, the award-winning actress, director and writer Polly Draper, a doctor asked her if she’d signed a Do Not Resuscitate order. Through the haze of drugs and debilitating illness, Wolff interjected. Lifting his head up, he growled: “Resuscitate me!”“I guess it just wasn’t my time,” he recalls! Today, he joins us on The Jazz Podcast for a chat about the journey. PROSTATE CANCER: REAL TALK™A supportive community of prostate cancer survivors...Listen on: Apple Podcasts   Spotify Thoughts from a Content CreatorLet's become full-time content creators together!

Natsuki Tamura

Natsuki Tamura

2022-04-1830:28

Japanese trumpeter and composer NATSUKI TAMURA is internationally recognized for a unique musical vocabulary that blends extended techniques with jazz lyricism. This unpredictable virtuoso’s seemingly limitless creativity led François Couture in All Music Guide to declare that “… we can officially say there are two Natsuki Tamuras: The one playing angular jazz-rock or ferocious free improv… and the one writing simple melodies of stunning beauty… How the two of them live in the same body and breathe through the same trumpet might remain a mystery.”Born on July 26, 1951, in Otsu, Shiga, Japan, Tamura first picked up the trumpet while performing in his junior high brass band. He began his professional music career after he graduated from high school, playing in numerous bands including the World Sharps Orchestra, Consolation, Skyliners Orchestra, New Herd Orchestra, Music Magic Orchestra, and the Satoko Fujii Ensemble, as well as in his own ensemble. He was the trumpeter for numerous national television shows in Japan from 1973–1982, including The Best Ten, Music Fair, Kirameku Rhythm and many others. PROSTATE CANCER: REAL TALK™A supportive community of prostate cancer survivors...Listen on: Apple Podcasts   SpotifySupport the show

Norma Winstone

Norma Winstone

2022-03-2850:46

Iconic British jazz vocalist Norma Winstone joins the show to chat about her life, career, albums, heels and wine. Norma Winstone was born in London and first attracted attention in the late sixties when she shared the bill at Ronnie Scott’s club with Roland Kirk. Although she was known initially for evolving her own wordless approach to improvisation, her extraordinary versatility means she is equally at home with the standards repertoire, performing with small groups, orchestras and big bands. In the late seventies she joined pianist John Taylor and trumpeter Kenny Wheeler to form the group Azimuth, which was described by Richard Williams of The Times as “one of the most imaginatively conceived and delicately balanced of all contemporary chamber jazz groups“. In this setting she combines the instrumental use of the voice with words, most of which she writes herself. Azimuth has recorded several albums on the ECM label (the first three of which have been re-issued as a CD boxed set).PROSTATE CANCER: REAL TALK™A supportive community of prostate cancer survivors...Listen on: Apple Podcasts   Spotify Thoughts from a Content CreatorLet's become full-time content creators together!

Sonny Rollins

Sonny Rollins

2022-03-0548:17

WALTER THEODORE ROLLINS was born on September 7, 1930 in New York City. He grew up in Harlem not far from the Savoy Ballroom, the Apollo Theatre, and the doorstep of his idol, Coleman Hawkins. After early discovery of Fats Waller and Louis Armstrong, he started out on alto saxophone, inspired by Louis Jordan. At the age of sixteen, he switched to tenor, trying to emulate Hawkins. He also fell under the spell of the musical revolution that surrounded him, bebop. In late 2020, the saxophonist released Rollins in Holland, a 2-CD/3-LP deluxe set via Resonance Records. The collection of unheard live and studio trio recordings from Rollins’s 1967 Netherlands tour feature “take no prisoners” performances with bassist Ruud Jacobs and drummer Han Bennink. Support the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/thejazzpodcast)

Luca Manning is an artist who questions rigidity. Shaped initially by the buzzing Glasgow music and arts scene, Luca now finds their heart stolen by all that East London has to offer.In their words, Luca’s music could be described as : ‘An ethereal art-pop adventure peeking down alleyways of Improvisation, storytelling and Spoken Word.’Luca’s most recent work : ’noises with friends e.p’, is perhaps their most honest and adventurous to date. It is a self proclaimed antithesis to the performative perfection that has us chasing our tales amongst the current rat race, fogging our creative process. ‘noises with friends’ sinks in to the messiness and spectrum of emotions intrinsic to our experience as we try to figure it all out. As a 2021/21 Resident artist at London’s iconic Roundhouse, right now feels like an exciting time for Luca.  In their spare time Luca enjoys dancing to disco, turning lewks and dreaming of the day they’ll own a baby sausage dog called Aretha.lucamanningmusic.comSupport the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/thejazzpodcast)

“The best new thing that has happened in European jazz for a long time” (Le Monde), Emile Parisien has formed a top-flight American-European sextet for this album, his seventh as leader or co-leader on ACT. The band will be touring in 2022, the year which also marks the tenth anniversary of Parisien’s first appearance on an ACT album.The saxophonist developed his strong sense of direction in music remarkably early: he was 10 years old when the news reached his family in Cahors that a new music school would be opening up roughly 200 kilometres away in Marciac. The youngster told his parents that this was the school he wanted to go to as a boarder...and so, with their support and approval, off he went. And it was through the school and the festival in Marciac that he received mentorship from some of the greats of North American jazz: Wynton Marsalis (who appeared as a guest on the album Sfumato Live), Clark Terry, Bobby Hutcherson, Oscar Peterson…https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=iePU0KXS610Support the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/thejazzpodcast)
