BBC Proms '21: Nubya Garcia
A hot new tenor saxophonist with a groovy new album, Source, some of which she performed here in quite a lengthy concert.

Louis Armstrong with his All Stars
A pleasant show from probably the late 60s. Besides decent jazz pieces, he did Mack the Knife, What a Wonderful World, Bare Necessities and You'll Never Walk Alone, also sharing the singing at times. They finished on When The Saints Go Marching In.

Later w/Jools Holland - Nubya Garcia
Clearly, she's big news. She picked Abdullah Ibrahim and the McCoy Tyner Trio from the archives, and played a track herself to close the show. She started on sax at 10, and has another new album coming, and played Brixton last night (or expected to).

Keith Jarrett - The Art of Improvisation
This 2005 looked at a formidable jazz pianist who had his own trio, recorded great albums, but whose career was affected when his health took a bad turn.

Jazz Voice - 2021 
From the EFG London Jazz Festival, a concert MC'd by Jumoke Fashola, whose material didn't always match her enthusiasm. Acts performing included Georgia Cecile, Ayanna Witter-Johnson, Michael Mayo, Lakecia Benjamin and Ego Ella May, whilst Guy Barker conducted the Festival Orchestra in accompaniment.

Blood Sweat & Tears - Live In Stockholm
Perhaps more jazz rock than jazz, but a pleasant change anyway, a steady set from 1973, including a cover of God Bless The Child along the way.

Chasing 'Trane
A lengthy look at John Coltrane, whose centenary will come in 2026. The sax legend was tributed by many other sax players, from the great Sonny Rollins to the less great Bill Clinton. John Densmore saw him live a few times and was moved, Carlos Santana was similarly impressed, his children and other biographers also had plenty to say in his honour.

Jazz All Stars: Cheltenham Jazz at 25
The festival returned this year to mark its 25th anniversary. This gig was hosted by YolanDa Brown, and included performances from the Guy Barker Big Band and the BBC Concert Orchestra, backing variously acts like Gregory Porter, Paloma Faith, Vanessa Haynes, Tommy Blaize, Adi Oasis, Joe Stilgoe, Georgia Cecile and Giacomo Smith. Very entertaining.

Ella Fitzgerald Sings
Presumably made sometime in the 1960s, she belts through a range of numbers ranging from Don't Rain On My Parade and Every Time We Say Goodbye, through to Mack The Knife and That Old Black Magic.

Jazz UK: Spitting Fire
An odd showcase concept, with Tina Edwards linking features on towns like Bristol and Manchester, and new lights on the scene ranging from Alabaster dePlume and Emma-Jean Thackray, to bands like Get The Blessing and Run Logan Run.

Oscar Peterson - Black & White
A major profile on the piano prodigy who some considered in the same league as the great Art Tatum. A great many colleagues and admirers spoke warmly, from Herbie Hancock and Branford Marsalis through to Billy Joel. There was plenty of archive of Oscar himself talking too. When he suffered a left-side stroke, it slowed him down but didn't stop him.

Famous jazz saxophonist Pharoah Sanders has died at the age of 81. Born in Little Rock, that apparently became a nickname too. RIP  Sad

Music Box: Listening To Kenny G
The last of this series saw Seattle's jazz legend giving his side of the story, and some critics exasperated at his link to the lineage of jazz history. A spot on the Johnny Carson show changed everything, and then Clive Davis got involved, and he never looked back.

Cleo Laine - Spring Collection
A show at the Collegiate Theatre, London form 1974, accompanied as ever by Johnny Dankworth and his band. She ran through a great mix of material from On A Clear Day You Can See Forever through to Unlucky Woman (Born on a Friday). She also did a version of Mad About The Boy from three viewpoints. Shown to mark her 95th birthday last week.

Cleo Laine at the BBC
As was this. Material spanned from 1961 to 2011, some talk shows, concerts, collaborations with the likes of John Williams, Des O'Connor, Tony Bennett and Dudley Moore, and more. A fine tribute.

Sir John Dankworth at the BBC
In fact a repeat from soon after his death, in 2010, and introduced by Cleo Laine. Material included didn't always include Cleo, there was plenty of music in its own sake from the late 1950s onwards (he and Cleo did make it to Jools Holland's show).

Guy Barker, Kurt Elling and Friends at Jazz Voice 2022
I had the vague sense this was a repeat, but in fact as I see it's been almost a year. Jumoke Fashola was back again to MC the acts, who included Ian Shaw, Dana Masters, Carroll Thompson, Amythyst Kiah, Mica Millar, Marisha Wallace, Kurt Elling and former Noisette Shingai. Guy Barker conducted the Festival Orchestra again.
