There's so much good jazz being recorded around the world....a lot of it on small labels....and yet it rarely gets airplay. JAZZ TODAY....in it's own small way....tries to put that right!

JAZZ TODAY is a fortnightly radio show on Cambridge105 Radio. It is broadcast live in Cambridge UK on 105FM, on digital and online at cambridge105.co.uk.
