Bobby Wellins and Wynton Marsalis

I picked up the following alert from Alan Parr on the Jazz West Coast Yahoo Group:


I haven’t listened to it yet, but UK listeners may like to know that available on Listen Again for the rest of the week is “a specially-assembled big band led by Guy Barker and special guests including Cleo Laine, Wynton Marsalis, Stan Tracey, Bobby Wellins, Soweto Kinch, Jason Yarde, and many more.

This concert was recorded last year at London’s Barbican to celebrate the British Big Band in all its styles and guises. Julian Joseph and Geoffrey Smith take us though this evocative journey that features an all-star cast that sadly included the last broadcast by British veteran trumpeter Harry Beckett.”

It lasts for 90 minutes and you should be able to find it at:

Enjoy!
