Jazz London Radio has teamed up with the excellent The Jazz Rag magazine to provide two CD reviews each month from their esteemed Reviewers.
Since 1987, The Jazz Rag magazine has been at the heart of the British jazz scene, published bi-monthly and containing news, reviews and features on both the rich history of jazz from across the globe, and exciting new album releases, tours and festivals.

With the current lockdown due to Coronavirus, Jazz London Radio will dust off the archives and feature some of the excellent interviews we have put together since the station started broadcasting in 2014.
Starting week beginning 20th April, we will feature three artists per week. We will announce which three artists will be the featured artists of the week every Sunday. Not only will we run their interviews but play their music throughout the week.
This week’s featured artists:
Wednesday 8th July: Robben Ford interview with Laurie Burnette from July 2019
Thursday 9th July: Janette Mason interview with Andrea Vicari from May 2018
Friday 10th July: Simon Phillips interview with Laurie Burnette from May 2016
