    Eamonn talks to Laurence Hobgood

    Dave Brubeck described Grammy-winner Laurence Hobgood as "one of the most incredible pianists". Best-known for his 20 years as Kurt Elling's pianist/arranger, Laurence has also enjoyed a solo career. And he's just released a Christmas album. All of the above were mentioned when Laurence popped into our Limerick studios during his most recent visit to these shores.

    The Dankworths: Sept  15th - 21st

    This week, our common thread is an English jazz dynasty: the Dankworth family. Reed-player-cum-bandleader John Dankworth worked in film and TV (he wrote “The Avengers” and the “Tomorrow’s World” themes). Wife, Cleo Laine, often recorded with him. All this week, we’ll also hear from their children, Alec and Jacqui Dankworth.
