New York Jazz
Show TimesFriday - 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
David has been presenting ‘New York Jazz’ at RPP FM since 1986. The program indulges in Mainstream and Modern Jazz, Bebop, Hard Bop, Post Bop, Soul & Grove, Cool Jazz, Piano Trios, Voices – from Minton’s to the here and now. The program guideline is ‘only jazz that swings or that is beautiful is presented’.
Small group recordings are the main feature from the 50s up until the present. Each program includes a half hour feature on a jazz identity or group and the last half hour is devoted to jazz vocalists. David organizes Jazz at the Bowl at The Frankston Bowls Club every 3rd Sunday of the month and invites special guests to perform and record.
David, who has lived in England, Japan, the Middle East and Australia since 1982, is a very experienced jazz drummer himself and runs a jazz club in Frankston. He endeavours to present tasteful jazz music that not only pleases the ardent jazz fan but is appealing to the fringe listener.
