Jazz, But Not As We Know It: Keys & Mees

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, Jazz But Not As We Know It is delighted to have Mees Olthoff as Guest Selector. Former chef and current cabinet maker/furniture restorer, Amsterdam-based vinyl nut Mees bring three great tracks to add to the show. Jab has been trying to get Mees to refurbish his Pianola, so he’s dug deep into his records to find some keyboard driven tunes to make August even more splendid. Hot Hammond meets Dutch Avant Garde, Piano complements Harpsichord.
