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.

This month, Jab scoops a rare and exclusive interview with multi-Grammy winners Snarky Puppy’s guitarist and leader of his own group, Mark Lettieri. Currently on tour with Snarky, Grammy-nominated Mark is bringing his group to Liverpool’s District on Thursday November 3rd, promoted by Parrjazz. Ahead of the gig, Mark will tell us about his influences, his latest project and what happened last time he spent a very late night in Liverpool after a kebab. As well as tunes from Mark Lettieri and Snarky, Jab will be playing a selection from the new Emily Francis Trio album, Luma.
