Jazz, But Not As We Know It: Cosmic Mass

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 Jab will be assembling a smouldering mixture of cosmic tunes from space rock to interstellar funky bass. Paving the way for Mononeon’s only UK appearance, IN BIRKENHEAD, next month we have some material from his 2021 album Basquiat & Skittles. Mononeon was Prince’s last bass player and is truly otherworldly. Also in the show are some cheeky record shop finds from Jab’s recent trip to Amsterdam and two moving pieces from one of the UK’s top contemporary spoken word/jazz artists.
