Bass player Huw V Williams is one of the most exciting new arrivals on the jazz and improvised music scene in the last five years. In addition to his work as a musician he also hosts the highly celebrated Improvised Music Agenda Podcast chatting to fellow musicians about life and music within the jazz and improvised music world.
For this Newcastle Festival of Jazz and Improvised Music edition Huw is in conversation with Tyneside Bassist John Pope, one of the most active musicians on the regional jazz scene who has released his own Quintet album this year, also performing at the festival.
This is a rare festival opportunity to sit in the audience or stream the live recording session for the Improvised Music Agenda podcast.
Following the one hour talk Huw and John will be joined by violinist John Garner to form a short unique improvisational string trio performing off the cuff for around half an hour.
