Adventures in Rhythm

Rod Wellard

Each week our adventure takes us into the musical territory of contemporary Jazz and its close musical neighbours.  We explore the many and varied rhythms that musicians create and play.  Musicians whose credo could well be “I Got Rhythm” or “It Don’t Mean a Thing if it Ain’t Got That Swing”.  Musicians who play with soul, who love to improvise and who play with pizzazz.  From Burrows to Basie; Davis to Deodata; Morrison to McLaughlin, Harris to Hassell, Ellington to Eno – they all make their presence felt on Adventures in Rhythm.
