Fed up with all this lockdown? Let’s unlock some jazz instead – a new monthly radio show all about jazz in Leeds, Leeds clubs, musicians and jazz fans Welcome to the new weekly Jazz Unlocked programme on East Leeds FM.

Steve Crocker from Jazz Leeds together with James Fernie from Chapel FM will be keeping you in touch with the jazz scene in Leeds during the lockdown. James and I have a broad definition of jazz so we’ll be including blues, big bands, jazz poetry and more. Jazz Unlocked will feature interviews, album recordings, and specially recorded performances

Leeds is a great place to play and listen to jazz – before the lockdown there were more than twenty venues where you could hear regular live sessions and the city has some of the finest jazz musicians in the UK too and we’ll be hearing from some of those people in the coming weeks.

Show goes out 9pm on Thursdays.
