His shows feature a fantastic collection of ‘backstage with…’ interviews with jazz musicians from the London scene and around the world, all sharing their own histories, music, recommendations, and musical passions.

He also shares his recommendations of books and films on jazz, helping his audience dive deeper if they desire.
Shows will feature music from classic artists such as Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, Frank Sinatra, John Coltrane, Oscar Peterson, and Nat King Cole, to the contemporary musicians leading the genre today.
