We welcome Jab to the airwaves for one hour of "Jazz, but not as we know it." 

Jab has been a Liverpool resident since 1988 after moving to the city in-part because of his love of the Liverpool music scene. He is a professional musician and has been involved in the jazz, rock, funk, hip-hop scene for more than 30 years. He's been promoting Liverpool's famous jazz scene for 10 years now and has built up an understanding of musicians, venues and audiences alike.

Through his musical endeavours, Jab has amassed a large record collection including progressive rock, punk, new wave, hip hop, jazz, classical and acid house.

This month Jab selects a couple of De La Soul classics to mark the sad passing of Trugoy. In true JBNAWKI fashion, an eclectic list of rare tunes – Sons of Kemet, Michael Gibbs and Visitor 2035 – are partnered with some lovely jazz tunes by Chrissie Hynde (The pretenders), Hard Bop from Tommy Chase plus the contemporary sounds of Xhosa Cole and spoken-word jazz of Anthony Joseph.
