We found out last week that a track from the Anton Hunter Trio‘s album is to be played tonight on BBC Radio 3′s Jazz on 3. I’m obviously excited about this, especially as we are being played alongside some truly fantastic musicians. The show appears to be focussing on the freer side of Jazz and will feature music from Ornette Coleman, Wadada Leo Smith, Lol Coxhill, Mats Gustafsson/Paal Nilssen-Love/Ingebrigt Haker-Flaten trio, and you’ll hear a lot throughout the program from the wonderful improvisers Alison Blunt (vln), Viv Corringham (vx), John Bisset (g) and Dave Leahy (b) recorded at Jazz on 3 studios.
So tune in to Jez Nelson’s Jazz on 3 tonight at 11pm. You can also come and see us play on Wednesday (September 18th) at Matt and Phred’s Jazz Club, Manchester.
