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’s Jazz But Not As We Know It is all about stories. Stories are what make us human. All the selected tracks have stories in their words or implied in their names. You can dive into your imagination, string their titles together to build a new personal narrative.

Jab is really pleased to play a demo by Liverpool’s own sexyprogfunksters Bonk! at the top of the show. Bonk! believes bass lines to be, “a societal sort of glue.” Very keen to get these guys on the show doing a session, so watch this space.

This will be a very eclectic show.
