Tuesday, July 30, 2013 0 comments


TOPICS: Knowing who your ideal clients are, April Ennis, Michael Port, Steve Farber


We welcome April Ennis to the podcast. She graciously stepped in when Roger was unavailable recently.

Jane and April talk about finding the right clients for you. Rather than chase everyone, they discuss the idea of seeking out a well-defined client who suits your needs and who will enable you to do the very best work you can.

  • Liane Carroll (piano & vocals)
  • Roger Carey (electric bass)
  • Clive Fenner (drums)
We’re privileged to kick-off our new season with the world-class Liane Carroll. Born in London and raised in Hastings, where she currently lives with her husband, bassist Roger Carey, East Side favourite Liane has been playing the piano since she was three and performing professionally since the age of fifteen. She has toured and recorded with artists such as Gerry Rafferty, Long John Baldry and Paul McCartney. Liane enjoyed success as double winner in the 2005 BBC Jazz Awards and 'Best female jazz vocalist' at the first Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Awards. Liane went on to pick up the 2008 Parliamentary Jazz Award for 'Musician Of The Year.' Later that year Liane formed an exciting new collaboration with the acclaimed Scottish jazz pianist Brian Kellock, and in November the pair toured throughout Scotland, at which The Herald declared, "This may well be British jazz's greatest double act." In 2009 Liane and her trio went stateside for the first time and performed to rapturous audiences at Dizzy's Jazz Club at the Lincoln Centre and the Rochester Jazz Festival. "No one who hears Liane Carroll in person is likely to forget the experience. It's not just that she's a brilliant pianist and a mesmerising singer, but that, like Stevie Wonder, she seems in some magical way to be made out of music. No recording has managed to capture this quality until now, but this one comes close" - Dave Gelly, The Observer (reviewing Liane's CD 'Up and Down'). Liane's latest CD 'Ballads' was released in mid April to great critical acclaim.

Leytonstone Festival present Omar Puente special guest virtuoso Cuban violinist with the East Side Latin All Stars

Tonight we get in the Cuban groove with our good friend Omar Puente and I defy anyone to sit still for long. The infectious cross rhythms from this authentic combo are guaranteed to get the club cooking. Omar began serious music studies at the age of 8. At 12 he left his family to take up a place at the prestigious Escuela Nacional de Arte in Havana. His education was furthered by playing with fellow students and visiting tutors such as Paquito d’Rivera and Dizzy Gillespie. In 1998 he formed the group Raices Cubanas (Cuban Roots). Since arriving in England, Omar has maintained an international profile, playing all over Europe, USA and Africa with such musicians as Tito Puente, Kirsty MacColl, Jools Holland, Courtney Pine and recently Nigel Kennedy 's new, three-electric-violin "Chilling-est Violinists". Omar teaches jazz violin at Leeds College of Music and conducts workshops in schools on the cultural and musical development of Cuba.

Business Jazz – 6th July 2013 – The 45 Conversation Episode

TOPICS THIS WEEK: 45 Conversations, Mamukko bags


A year ago, Jane and Roger didn't know each other. The first time they had any real contact was during Jane's first run over 45 Conversations recordings.

Twelve months later Jane is connecting with the original 45 people she spoke to. So we decided to incorporate her round 2 conversation with Roger into an episode of Business Jazz.

From left to right: Attila, Levi and Roger holding the Mamukko "Digital Storyteller" bag. The bag will soon have its own webpage from where its story will be told.

Son of the late Jimmy Skidmore, also a tenor saxophonist, Alan has toured and recorded with Elvin Jones, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Joe Henderson, Dexter Gordon, Mike Gibbs and Mike Westbrook, Chris McGregor’s Brotherhood of Breath, John Dankworth and Tubby Hayes Big Bands, the widely influential SOS group with Mike Osborne and John Surman as well as a continuing association with Georgie Fame’s Blue Flames. “Skidmore - one of the most ferociously virtuosic saxophonists to have emerged out of the British sax generation that worked up its momentum around 1970 - is no mere mirror of Coltrane’s glory. When he attacks the master’s long, twisting odysseys into melodic and harmonic density, he plays as if the effort is fearsome. To watch his chest pumping after a five-minute double-time avalanche of improvisation, you almost wish he would sit down and recover with a bit of Coltrane-like yoga breathing” - John Fordham, Guardian
