WELCOME TO INTERNATIONAL JAZZ DAY

2PM - 3PM

Jazz On The Beach presenter Adam Sieff starts off the day’s jazz broadcasting with an introduction to International Jazz Day and the music it inspires.

Adam started out as a session guitar player and record producer/writer. He managed Tower Records UK Jazz dept before becoming Sony Music’s Director of Jazz, UK & International. He worked with Tomorrow’s Warriors jazz development organisation and helped establish vinyl-led Gearbox Records. He lives in Deal, is a regular writer for London Jazz News and ‘Aww…Pick it, Wilson’ and still plays guitar.

COVER TO COVER

3PM - 4PM

Nik Huggins presents an eclectic hour of jazz versions of popular songs. From contemporary rock to classic standards, tune in to hear tracks you’ll recognise and some you won’t. 

 

Nik is a freelance writer living in Deal. His musical interests range from bluegrass to techno and plenty in between. He’s a recent but very dedicated convert to the world of jazz. 

JAZZ AT THE MOVIES

4PM - 5PM

Larushka Ivan-Zadeh features music from essential movies that span the history of motion pictures from The Jazz Singer to Soul. 

 

Larushka is the Chief Film Critic of Metro, the UK’s biggest national daily newspaper. She is also a regular contributor to The Times, Times Radio and various bits of the BBC, mainly BBC Radio 4.

GLOBAL UNDERGROUND: JAZZ SPECIAL

5PM - 6PM

Roger Brockbank presents a special edition of the Global Underground show with a special focus on jazz music.

 

A former manager of Mental Health services in London and a mature student in African music and performance, Roger became an accidental DJ on Deal Radio and channelled his musical obsession into a hugely satisfying hobby where he communicates with listeners, musicians, record companies and DJ’s from around the world.

JAZZ JOY

6PM - 7PM

Rudy de Belgoenne presents a set for global unity on International Jazz Day. 

Rudy is an artist and freelance designer who moved to Deal in Summer 2021 with his wife and 2 dogs. He grew up in the 80s obsessed as a teenager with the likes of Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong when everyone else he knew was listening to Duran Duran and Rick Astley.

In the decades since, his tastes have broadened and deepened to encompass Jazz in its truest sense – where freeform expression intersects with soul, funk, folk, world and every other genre of music.

JAZZ SOUTH EAST

7PM - 8PM

Spotlight on jazz musicians in South East Kent

Adam Sieff plays music from some of the fine jazz musicians who are based in South East Kent, including Norma Winstone, Paul Booth, Jennifer Maidman, Daniel Cano, Doug Sides, Jessica Lauren, Sabina Desir and Michael McEvoy.

FRIDAY NIGHT AT TOTTENHAM ROYAL

8PM - 9PM

David Augustin presents an hour of jazz funk inspired by the legendary Friday nights at the famous North London venue.

An ex 1980s/90s guitar and bass session player, David now writes and records music for film and TV with his partner Teresa. His music tastes are fairly catholic, but jazz, thanks to his father, has always been a passion.

ECM RECORDS

9PM - 10PM

Peter Purton chooses music from one of the great independent jazz record labels.

Peter is an engineer turned psychology student turned journalist, folkie turned new waver turned jazzer. Introduced to jazz by a guy who was anxious to show off his new electrostatic loudspeakers, and couldn’t think of a better album to demonstrate them than Keith Jarrett’s Köln Concert. He hardly noticed the HiFi but fell in love with the music. 

AFROJAZZ JUKEBOX

10PM - 11PM

Will Vine presents a celebration of the African influences on British jazz.

‘I chose to describe myself as a Jazz Messenger during a decade long stint as publicist for the Hertsjazz organisation. Even for many famous and fashionable jazz heroes bums on seats is not always given in the UK, a country that hosts a population largely determined not to dig what’s good for it. Boy, if Art Farmer, Benny Golson and Tal Farlow knew the flyposting I did to get a decent audience in for them….. Musically I know what I like if not always why. I have a bit of an aversion to big bands but nothing will ever part me from my Brotherhood of Breath LPs nor will I ever let go of Roland Kirk’s The Inflated Tear, the first jazz record I ever spent money on and am still playing.’

JAZZ ON THE BEACH PARTY

11PM - MIDNIGHT

To close the evening, Adam and whoever else happens to be in the studio will host a jazz party to end the day’s celebrations.
