Peter has been listening to modern jazz for over 50 years.
Inspired initially by the American Avant-Garde of Ornette Coleman, Archie Shepp and the Art Ensemble of Chicago, he soon encountered the talented British, European and South African musicians who were taking jazz in different directions
After retiring from a proper job, Peter spent some years working with London’s F-IRE collective, the key initiator and inspiration in the collectives movement that revitalised the jazz scene in both UK and Europe. Peter now broadcasts on community radio in West London, and writes for London Jazz News. Peter also broadcasts a programme of more experimental European jazz on www.mixcloud.com/ukjazz
As well as playing some classic jazz, Peter's show will focus on the exciting new generation of young bands making waves today and converting listeners from the rock and urban music scenes into jazz fans.
Many of the bands will be new to British listeners and Peter enjoys hearing from anyone who has just discovered and enjoyed something new.
I will be playing some great music on my monthly show and sharing some great music with you.
