Sven Hammond Soul: Tivoli de Helling
Although its music might sound like the sound track of any 1970s American car chase movie, the band Sven Hammond Soul is from the Netherlands. This steaming soul machine is headed by Sven Figee, who prefers to attack rather than play his Hammond organ. In April 2012, the band was augmented with vocalist Jenny Lane. Today’s recordings were made at a steaming live performance at Utrecht’s Tivoli in 2012.

New Morning: Randy Brecker #1
The New Morning is a Paris club that specializes in jazz and blues. It was 1981 when the club opened its doors for the first time. Since then, many jazz and blues giants have made their appearance on the stage, with Chet Baker, Dizzy Gillespie, Dexter Gordon and Kenny Clarke among them. Tonight’s concert features trumpeter Randy Brecker. He has often shared the stage with his brother Michael Brecker, but tonight he plays the New Morning Club with pianist Niel Lan Doky, bass player Pierre Boussaguet, and drummer Alvin Queen. Brecker is known for creating a coherent mix between jazz, rock and R&B. This evening’s performance is no exception: all styles pass by, thereby proving Brecker’s talent.

Legends of Jazz: American Songbook
With the exception of DJAZZ.tv, there is hardly any jazz on television. Jazz pianist and broadcaster Ramsey Lewis has addressed this vacuum with his programme series ‘Legends of Jazz’. This interesting series brings together musicians who are not usually paired. Today’s episode is all about the American Songbook. From the 1930s to the 1950s, American songwriters created an unequalled body of work we now call ‘The American Songbook’. Many of these tunes have become ‘standards’, which are linked forever to the jazz and pop singers who gave them life. Guitarist/vocalist John Pizzarelli and top jazz singer Jane Monheit discuss with Ramsey Lewis what jazz has taken from (and given to) the great American popular song composers, from Irving Berlin to Gershwin and beyond. John Pizzarelli and Jane Monheit sing both separately and in duet to demonstrate why they are as well-loved as are the songs they perform... and why this great music continues.

Every year since 1982, the days around Ascension Day have been devoted to the ‘Jazz sous les Pommiers’ festival in French Normandy.

In 2011, Ron Carter gave an outstanding concert at ‘Jazz sous les Pommiers’. Carter, who is among the most original, prolific and influential bassists in jazz, has more than 2,000 albums to his credit. He has recorded with the who’s who of jazz: from Tommy Flanagan and Gil Evans to Lena Horne, Bill Evans, B.B. King, the Kronos Quartet, Dexter Gordon, Wes Montgomery, and Bobby Timmons. In the early 1960s, Ron Carter performed throughout the United States in concert halls and nightclubs with Jaki Byard and Eric Dolphy. He later toured Europe with Cannonball Adderley. From 1963 to 1968, he was a member of the classic and acclaimed Miles Davis Quintet. He was named ‘Outstanding Bassist of the Decade’ by the Detroit News and ‘Jazz Bassist of the Year’ by Downbeat Magazine.

Night of Blues: John Lee Hooker Jr.
Like father, like son: there’s blues running through the veins of the Hooker family. Father John Lee Hooker, the famed blues guitarist and singer, passed in 2001. A decade later, his son John Lee Hooker Jr. plays at the Rhino Jazz Festival. Like his father, Hooker Jr. plays the blues on an unparalleled level. He has paid his dues as a blues musician from an early age: as a little boy, he often joined his father on tour, and he made his radio debut at age 8. Only in 2004 the bluesman releases his first solo album: ‘Blues with a Vengeance’. It earns him a Grammy nomination. The moment has come that John Lee Hooker Jr. is approaching the legendary status of his father!

Reggae Sun Ska: Natty Will Fly Again
During every late July since 1998, the French Gironde swings to the rhythms of reggae when the Reggae Sun Ska Festival takes place near Bordeaux. The ever-growing festival contributes to the fact that the reggae genre, which has roots in Jamaica, has become inseparable from the popular music of today. Reggae has roots in ska and rocksteady, two music genres that in turn derive from soul and rhythm-and-blues. The bass and drum provide ‘riddim’, the typical drum and bass accent that’s such an instantly recognizable element of reggae music. Reggae is closely related to the Rastafari belief of Jamaica. Each year, the French festival presents the biggest names in reggae - and DJAZZ brings the special rhythms of reggae to your living room! In this episode, DJAZZ broadcasts a concert of the American reggae band Natty Will Fly Again, an unique trio that brings a poignant tribute to Jamaican reggae music!

Solo Session: Gonzalo Rubalcaba
What happens if you ask a jazz artist to just sit down and play in front of a camera, without any further ado? Some of the greatest jazz musicians in any style - from blues and boogie-woogie to bebop and beyond - rise to the challenge, in these intimate and exciting jazz solo sessions. Pianist Gonzalo Rubalcaba displays in this solo session his remarkable sensitivity toward the musical traditions from which he emerged and later embraced. Rubalcaba, one of the most important figures to emerge from Afro-Cuban jazz in the 1990s, is an extraordinarily versatile pianist who knows how to mix disparate strands of Cuban and the American jazz tradition of pianists Thelonious Monk, Bud Powell, and Oscar Peterson into a fresh, modern whole. After playing around Havana by night for twelve years, Rubalcaba met bassist Charlie Haden by chance – who instantly recognized Rubalcaba as one of the great virtuosos of the music, and talked about him to Blue Note records. It marked Rubalcaba’s arrival on the international jazz stage in the late 1980s, and, as they say, the rest is history.

Al Di Meola: One of These Nights
"One Of These Nights" was a very special event for Al Di Meola - a night like his legendary "Friday Night In San Francisco", recorded almost a quarter of a century ago. Al Di Meola assembled a thoroughly excellent group of musicians for this review of the highlights of a career spanning almost three decades - a fantastic combination of romantic chamber music, traditional Latin American music and free jazz, constantly switching between off-the-cuff improvisation and intricate set-pieces. Time and again the musicians manage to vary familiar pieces with surprising rhythm changes and brilliant soundscapes. Pianist Mario Parmisano and the two master drummers Ernie Adams and Gumbi Ortiz are always congenial partners, and Hungary's Sturcz String Quartet give the music an unusual flavor. Masterful solos, riveting, sometimes humorous dialogs and fascinating group playing round off this live recording, a stroll through Al Di Meola's rich repertoire of classics in a new, attractive sound. A truly magical concert.

Stéphane Grappelli: Jazz Festival Warsaw
All of Poland anticipated the event: Stéphane Grappelli was coming to perform in Warsaw for the first time in his long and impressive career. It was October 1991, the weather was already cold but the thought of the maestro actually playing for the citizens of Poland warmed the hearts of jazz enthusiasts throughout the country. The French jazz violinist began his career in Paris playing with Django Reinhadt as the principal member of the "Quintette du Hot Club de France". Later, Grappelli had a long association with George Shearing touring throughout Europe. The violin virtuoso has recorded with many of the world's greatest jazz stars including Gary Burton, Earl Hines and Joe Venuti. His playing was rooted in the swing idiom and has always been characterized by his sweet tone. This programme, recorded live in October 1991 to a packed Opera House in Warsaw, concludes with a thunderous ten minute standing ovation. The press confirmed the success of the historic event when they called the concert you are about to see, "the greatest event in Polish jazz history".

Free Jazz in Kongressaal Munich: Cecil…
In the midst of the blossoming of the free-jazz scene, pianist Cecil Taylor (1929) probably represented the non-jazz aspect of the movement better than anyone else. Many of the innovations of the 1960s were pioneered by his records. His fusion of exuberance and atonality was particularly influential. Like saxophonist Ornette Coleman, who initially overshadowed him, Taylor was one of the first musicians to release jazz improvisation from fixed harmonic structures. Influenced by both classical music and jazz, Taylor became a virtuoso pianist with a unique range of dynamics, attacks, and harmonic resources, including many tone clusters played for percussive, not harmonic, effect. During this 1984 Müncher Klaviersommer concert, he shows his mastery of improvised jazz.

Les Musiciens du Nil: African Swing
Les Musiciens du Nil are a symbol. They were the first Arab music group to, thanks to Alain Weber, achieve acknowledgement in 1975, before the appearance of Arab-oriental music and raï music. Originating from the North of Egypt, wearing heavy jellabiyas, Les Musiciens du Nil have been touring throughout Europe for about three decades, performing at festivals and musical celebrations. Their shows are a burst of spontaneity strengthened by powerful percussions. As invincible and iconic as the Egyptian pyramids, the group stands up to time and survives trends.

Every year since 1982, the days around Ascension Day have been devoted to the ‘Jazz sous les Pommiers’ festival in French Normandy. This 10-day festival in Coustances showcases a beautiful variety of local musicians, art performances, and renowned jazz names. ‘Jazz sous les Pommiers’ was founded by two local amateur musicians, teacher Thierry Giard and cultural animator Gerard Houssin. Today’s broadcast, a 2009 concert, shows a spectacular performance of master percussionist Mamady Keita. Keita was born in Balandugu, a small village in the West African Guinea near to the border of Mali. Before his birth, his mother was told that his name would travel beyond Balandugu, beyond Guinea and beyond all of Africa. She did not know what that meant until Mamady was born: before he could even walk, he would turn over anything that looked like a bowl and he would start hitting it like a drum. His parents gave Keita the nickname ‘Nankama’, meaning ‘born for it’, and brought him to the master drummer of the village, Karinkadjan Kond. After his education, Keita started to work with the National Ballet of Guinea, the Ballet National Djoliba. In 1986 he decided to establish himself as an independent drummer. At this point there is no West African music world imaginable without Mamady Keita.
