Jazz Britannia repeated

by Modculture 29 December, 2005

Humph For anyone who missed the BBC’s excellent three part series on the introduction and development of jazz in the UK in the 50s and 60s, you’ll be pleased to know that Jazz Britannia is repeated over three days from Sunday 1st January 2006 at 11:55pm.

If you want to catch a preview, the mini website for the show is still online, along with trailers from the show. Visit: http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcfour/music/features/jazz-brit1.shtml

Also showing is Jazz Britannia Live At The Barbican (an accompanying live concert) and Smokey Dives, George Melly’s look at the sleazy jazz clubs of the 50s and 60s.
