The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra with guest Randy Brecker can be heard on Radio 3’s Jazz Line-Up tonight.

Here’s what the BBC website has to say about it:

Jazz Line-Up present a unique event celebrating BBC Jazz presenters from all its Radio stations, both local and national. Julian Joseph introduces the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra, directed by Tommy Smith. During the 90 minute concert there are featured songs and tunes from Linley Hamilton (BBC Radio Ulster) and Clare Teal ( BBC Radio 2). Co-presenters of the concert are: Trudy Kerr (BBC Across The South), John Hellings (BBC Hereford and Worcester), Stephen Duffy (BBC Radio Scotland), Alyn Shipton (BBC Radio 3), Walter Love (BBC Radio Ulster) and Kevin Le Gendre (BBC Radio 3). The finale of the concert was given by trumpeter Randy Brecker who solos with the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra.

I can’t make out from that quite how much of the SNJO we’re going to get, but it will still be well worth a listen, particularly for those of us who were unable to get along to their concerts with Brecker when they played here in late May.

Jazz Line-Up is broadcast at 11pm on Radio Three. Stephen Duffy’s own show, The Jazz House, is on Radio Scotland at 8pm. Both will be available online for a week.
