1) Jamie Cullum’s BBC Radio 2 show kicks off at 7 pm tonight with eg an interview with Ramsey Lewis and live set from Polar Bear. The aim is to show the breadth and range of jazz. I like it – a very good starting-point indeed!
2) For the next seven days you can hear BBC Radio Oxford’s round-up of the Oxford Jazz Festival. ‘it launches straight into some gypsy magic from Dunajska Kapelye The Festival showcased a lot of British jazz.
