Jazz, But Not As We Know It

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.

Summer is here in full effect, so Jab is wearing his baggies for this month’s Jazz But Not As We Know It. We’re going to the beach in our newly refurbished Woody to pull out a vintage balsa board, hit out through the foamies and try not to look like a Barney stuck in the chowder! This show features original and new music from the Surf Beat genre – a jazz informed style of rock and roll originating from early 1960s California, instrumental and vocal tunes. From the Pyramids to Guantanamo Baywatch, we’ll be hanging ten and avoiding the landlords.
