Stan Tracey has a chat

Upcoming this Saturday on Radio 3 is my interview from Gateshead International Jazz Festival 2010 with “godfather of British jazz” Stan Tracey. With such a voluminous catalogue there was no time to cover everything, but Stan was in great form reminiscing for the audience and we had to get special permission from Radio 3 to use what I suspect will be flagged up before the show as “strong language”. The interview was recorded as a prequel to the CD launch of Stan’s new CD “Later Works”, played by the Octet a bit later on that night.
