From Louis Armstrong's unforgettable trumpet to Billie Holiday's haunting vocals, together we'll explore their contributions to the world of jazz and play some of their iconic tracks. So, grab your favourite beverage, find a cozy spot, and let the soothing, swinging, and improvisational sounds of jazz take you on a journey. This is where the magic of jazz comes alive, and it's just the beginning. If you would like a request, a shout out, or to engage directly with The Jazz Hour, you can email Harry direct at thejazzhour@abbey104.com.
