The Jazz Show

with David Wares

with David Wares

An eclectic blend of jazz, improvised and world music.


Jazz isn’t a genre, it’s a language, it’s a mindset, it’s a living thing: a spirit of sonic adventure. Every Sunday at 9pm we bring you the best of jazz, improvised and world music – plus a sprinkling of downright strange noise made by aural adventurers – from across the globe and throughout the decades.

Whether your taste runs to big band, bebop, hard bop, post-bop, cool jazz, trad, west coast, east coast, Korean, Moroccan, Scandinavian, fusion, or just weird electronic noises, we’ve got the show for you. We very much welcome listener involvement too, and love to showcase local jazz musicians and acts, so feel free to get in touch with a request, a comment, or even a live session here at Spark.
