Jazz, But Not As We Know It (November ’19)

Jab & Cath Thompson


We welcome Jab to the airwaves for one hour of “Jazz, but not as we know it.” 

Jab has been a Liverpool resident since 1988 after moving to the city in-part because of his love of the Liverpool music scene. He is a professional musician and has been involved in the jazz, rock, funk, hip-hop scene for more than 30 years. He’s been promoting Liverpool’s famous jazz scene for 10 years now and has built up an understanding of musicians, venues and audiences alike.

Through his musical endeavours, Jab has amassed a large record collection including progressive rock, punk, new wave, hip hop, jazz, classical and acid house. This month he invites pal Cath Thompson on air to share some of her favourite records and the anecdotes behind them. Tune in to explore the sounds of jazz and post-punk.
