International Jazz Day special from the man formerly known as 6 foot stereo. Our man, Chris Cracknell, has engaged some of the great and the good from the underground music world to give us a take on some of their favourite tracks, in order to encourage those non-jazz fans to think again. A little nudge in the right direction if you will. The guest selectors include, Rebecca Vasmant, Marc Mac, Tamar Collocutor, Idris Ackamoor, Robert Luis, Sarathy Korwar, DJ Format, Chip Wickham, Jessica Lauren, Shabaka Hutchings & Mr. Scruff.

As you see the list contains a small selection of some of the finest players on the contemporary Jazz scene, as well as those whose Dj and production styles have been influenced by Jazz. Either way, this show makes for a compelling insight into the hearts and minds of some of our favourite players within the scene/s that we love.

Do you not like Jazz? Are you sure about that?
