Radio Three’s Jazz Line-Up on Sunday 6 January features excerpts from the London Jazz Festival concert by Kurt Elling and Sheila Jordan.
What the BBC’s publicity for the programme doesn’t mention is that Sheila Jordan’s band on the night was none other than the “excellent empathetic” trio led by “estimable” Brian Kellock (with Kenny Ellis and Stu Ritchie). According to one reviewer Kellock “dazzled throughout with his sparkling, searching solos”. And the critical consensus seems to be that Sheila Jordan and Kurt Elling weren’t bad either.
Jazz Line-Up goes out at 11.15pm tomorrow. Fortunately for those of us with day jobs it will be available online for a week after that.
