    Hideko Udagawa

    I hope you'll enjoy listening to my conversation with violinist Hideko Udagawa.

    Nostalgic Russia - Hideko's latest album - is out now and features some of the most gorgeous pieces written for violin and piano, and transcriptions of two pieces that were originally written for solo piano. We discuss all this and more and I hope you enjoy listening.

    Thanks to Hideko for allowing me to play extracts from Nostalgic Russia alongside our conversation.

    Lisa Swerdlow

    I hope you'll enjoy listening to my conversation with pianist and composer Lisa Swerdlow.

    Lisa's latest single is All Is Not Lost and we discuss that, together with her Coming to America concerto, which is also available now. Lisa is a beautiful pianist and these compositions have a great deal to offer, both musically and philosophically.

    Thanks to Lisa for allowing me to play extracts from both All Is Not Lost and Coming to America alongside our conversation.

    Another delightful and hugely talented guest on Harmonious World and this time it's bassist, Marc Johnson.

    Marc's latest album, Overpass, is out now on ECM Records. and I hope you enjoy listening to the sample of the tracks on the podcast. It's a fascinating album and beautiful music - some standards and some originals.

    Thanks to Marc for allowing me to play extracts from Overpass alongside our conversation.

    Season 6 trailer

    Season 6 trailer

    Welcome to season 6 of Harmonious World. I can't quite believe that I've been doing this for so long, nor that I'm getting so many listeners now. I'm grateful to all of you.

    I've been looking back at my previous episodes, listening to some of the music and I have really spoken to many, many extraordinary musicians.

    I am particularly looking forward to spending some time listening to some of them in person - October and November are getting busy with gigs already.

    There are some great conversations coming up in season 6 and I hope you continue to enjoy listening in.

    Igor Butman

    Igor Butman

    With apologies for the quality of this interview, where technology between the UK and Russia wasn't always reliable, but this is nevertheless a great interview with an outstanding sax player, Igor Butman.

    We had a fascinating discussion about his music and the bridge he is constantly building between Moscow and New York. His new album - Only Now -  is available now. I cannot recommend it highly enough and I hope the two tracks I've included here give some indication of the quality you'll enjoy. And if you have ever considered a trip to Moscow, this time next year will be the time to go, when Igor is set to help celebrate 100 years of Russian jazz with a concert at the renowned Bolshoi Theatre on 1 October 2022.
     
    Thanks to Igor for allowing me to play extracts from Only Now alongside our conversation.

    Another blast from my past - I discovered on interviewing guitarist Chris Standring that we were undoubtedly in the same room or on the same stage in the past.

    His album - Wonderful World -  is out now and it's a delightful collection of jazz standards accompanied by stunning strings.  We discussed my two favourite tracks - Green Dolphin Street and Autumn in New York - and it's great to play extracts from both to accompany our conversation. I hope you enjoy listening to our chat, especially as we deviate into name dropping our mutual friends.
     
    Thanks to Chris for allowing me to play extracts from Wonderful World alongside our conversation.
