Jef Neve has become one of Europe's most acclaimed composer/performers, combining jazz and classical influences into a piano style of his own. He has appeared twice at the Wangaratta Jazz Festival and also visited ArtSound in 2013 to record a concert for FNL.  Since 2003, Jef has released several albums with his Trio, and has also performed as guest soloist and composer with several leading orchestras in Europe.

This week, Jef will be playing music from his new CD ONE in a concert presented in January by the Bungendore Wood Works Gallery, Cafe WoodWorks and Artsound FM in association with the Embassy of the Kingdom of Belgium. 

Produced and presented by Chris Deacon OAM.

 

FNL is kindly sponsored by B2B, Canberra's leading business and government magazine.

FROM WWOZ-FM NEW ORLEANS, this is New Orleans Calling - 4PM Sat 4 JULY 2015

We've just completed our first full year of New Orleans Calling from WWOZ in New Orleans!  The program brings the music, sounds, people, and life of New Orleans to listeners around the  world.  

To celebrate, and as a special thank-you to our listeners, George Ingmire has assembled a program of some of the very best moments from this past year, including a little R&B, a little jazz, a couple of secret New Orleans recipes, and a visit with a Mardi Gras Indian. Plus a special bonus, or "lagniappe" as they like to say in the Crescent City -- some new and unreleased music, recorded just for New Orleans Calling at the historic Basin Street Station. And in the words of trumpeter Leroy Jones, this is "Mo Cream From The Crop!" .  Presented by George Ingmire.

THE BEN MARSTON PROJECT AT THE STREET

One Sunday afternoon in 2008, we recorded Ben Marston (trumpet) with a number of his long time collaborators in a big band setting at Canberra's Street Theatre. Billed as "The Ben Marston Project", the concert featured what was then some of the "cream"of Canberra's jazz talent in a stunning afternoon of largely original material:

Chris Thwaite (drums), James Luke (bass), and Lachlan Coventry (guitar), Valdis Thomann, Rob Lee, Alastair Clarke, Dave Hicks (trombones), John Mackey, James LeFevre, Andrew Pogson, Adam Matthews, Joe Lloyd (saxes), Miroslav Bukovsky, Dan Maclean (trumpets), Wayne Kelly (piano).  The concert was sponsored, in part, by the ACT Government's ArtsACT.

Kindly sponsored by B2B - Canberra's leading business and government magazine. Produced and presented by Chris Deacon OAM.
