Musical Selection & Additional Production by J. Scott Fugate

Here's the story:

Back in the mid-80's on National Public Radio (NPR) in America, a show ran called Sidran On Record. Presented by Ben Sidran, a musician, author, lecturer and journalist, the show featured interviews with the great and the good from the world of Jazz. Miles, Dizzy, Herbie and Grover were amongst 60 interviews that ran over the course of 5 years. Many of the legends featured are sadly no longer with us, but the recordings are, and several years back Ben released these as part of a wonderful, 24 CD box set called Talking Jazz—bringing to life a golden period of entertainment and understanding as we learn about the masters, their thoughts and their works. Whilst this may seem like an advert for this prestigious box set, it isn't really. Promise. We've been in touch with Ben and asked for his permission to use these interviews and create our own shows based on his works. Ben gave it two thumbs up and we're delighted to present to you Talking Jazz with Ben Sidran, our most ambitious project to date.

Episode 3 features Don Cherry, a complex man, whose playing not necessarily always made for comfortable listening, yet who continually pushed the boundaries of Jazz with both his philosophy and unique use of both the cornet and pocket trumpet. It is believed that no known recordings exist of Don Cherry playing a standard trumpet. Certainly one of life's true individuals and a compelling interviewee shines through in conversation with Ben. It's a dialogue that Scott Fugate has further enhanced in his intricate production with seventeen tracks interwoven into this fifty- three minute show. Truly fascinating. If you fancy buying the essential box set, which includes the full sixty interviews, then here's where you need to go: talkingjazz.com

The other two episodes that we've previously remixed and released featuring Miles Davis & Dizzy Gillespie are available on our website: soulandjazz.com
