Why is Latin music less egotistical than jazz? Can you really fit a whole latin big band inside one Air B&B cottage? Why is it important that jazz musicians continue to tour to less populated locations? Is it tempting for jazz musicians to give up the city life after the pandemic?
All of these questions are answered and more in this bumper episode where Fliss delves behind the scenes of Jazz Jurassica Festival, the first live jazz festival to return to the UK in May 2021- after the first three lockdowns of the pandemic.
Be transported to Lyme Regis, Dorset, with the sound of the waves crashing, sea gulls squawking (and kids crying unfortunately!) as Fliss interviews leader of Dockside Latin Orchestra Joe Longridge, festival director Julie Sheppard and jazz pianist Matt Carter.
