An interesting interviewee on Jazz in the City on JazzFM tomorrow Monday at 6pm. Julia Hobsbawm (career synopsis here) will, she’s written to me from Boston, be talking about the influence of her father Eric Hobsbawm, historian and author, who is now 94 years old, “about his record collection and how he introduced me to Jazz.”
Eric Hobsbawm wrote about jazz – including the the book above – under the pseudonym Francis Newton. There’s not yet an iPlayer link.
