Jazz A Love Affair 203.

This weeks show "Jazz A Love Affair 203" is a show of two halves, part 1, is mainly new and recent releases. There are two birthdays to celebrate, both on the same date, yes they were born on the same day, Sonny Rollins and Harry South. As Harry recorded nothing as leader, although his influence was wide and bright, I chose a Tubby Hayes track for him, which he wrote, arranged and play on. Harry worked with the best of British jazz legends, John Dankworth, Joe Harriott, Ronnie Scott, Ronnie Ross, Dick Morrissey, Annie Ross and his work with NYJO. Then part 2, my way of saying happy birthday from me and UKJR to the great Sonny Rollins, he gets the second hour to himself. Here is your link
