BBC Jazz Library – Featuring Bobby Wellins

Today’s excellent edition of Jazz Library featured Alyn Shipton talking to Bobby Wellins about his career of over 50 years and discussing some of his finest recordings, from his Dankworth big band sessions through his time with Stan Tracey to his more recent quartet sessions, with mentions of Pete Jacobsen, Spike Wells, Ronnie Scott, Jimmy Knepper and Claire Martin along the way.

The interview is a very warm one, recorded last week at the Oxford Jazz Festival2011, and opens with Alyn introducing Bobby as “one of my favourite saxophonists in all of jazz – and I mean not just in the UK, not just Europe but everywhere in the world”.

You can listed to the programme until 7th May 2011, here.
