This episode is a marvellous miscellany of Fliss’s guest so far, talking about anything and everything & concludes the first series of ‘Journeys In Jazz’.
British jazz trumpet legend Enrico Tomasso talks of his friendship with Louis Armstrong and his great grandfather’s migration from Italy to the UK. Canadian jazz vocalist Lauren Bush tells us how every single ‘yes’ makes up for the countless rejections when striving for a wider audience as a jazz musician. Bassist Arnie Somogyi talks of why jazz degree courses work, and bassist Charlie Pyne mentions the progression in equality of the sexes in the jazz profession. ‘Best British Jazz Vocalist’ Sara Dowling talks of the trials of studying classical music at music school as a child and jazz pianist Jack Honeyborne speaks of his home being bombed in WWII and his wife’s shopping trips with Dizzy Gillespie.
