Piano Jazz

Today* we present a pro­gramme of jazz on the keys from a vari­ety of peri­ods. The empha­sis is on piano, but you’ll also hear some great pieces per­formed on elec­tron­ic key­boards includ­ing some mar­vel­lous com­po­si­tions by Ian Lynn – notably his For­got­ten Sum­mer, pre­sent­ed in two seam­less parts cor­re­spond­ing to the com­plete sides of the orig­i­nal vinyl album.

The ZBS Radio Hour

Then at 11am or 7pm Pacif­ic Time, that’s 19:00 or 03:00 GMT, tune in for the final episode of Jack Flan­ders in Dreams of Rio – fol­lowed by a nice lit­tle curio: a col­lec­tion of ZBS Foun­da­tion’s Two Minute Film Noir series — a mar­vel­lous col­lec­tion of tales with a Noir feel. Don’t miss it!

After today’s pro­gramme, the ZBS Radio Hour will be tak­ing a short break – but it’ll be back in the Autumn.

*So why aren’t we broad­cast­ing a pro­gramme of Clas­sic Elec­tron­i­ca to cel­e­brate the birth of Lev Sergeye­vich Ter­men (aka Léon Theremin, inven­tor of the Theremin) yes­ter­day? Well, apart from the fact that we did one just the oth­er week, his birth date was August 15 1896 in the old-style cal­en­dar in use in Rus­sia at the time, and that cor­re­sponds to August 27 in the cal­en­dar we use today. That’s my excuse and I’m stick­ing to it (writes Elrik Mer­lin).
