my Desert Island discs – in Spanish


A few weeks ago, back in Gijón, Carlos Pizarro, excelentisimo jazz guitarist, invited me to talk about the music I like on his jazz radio programme, La Voz del Arbol. I had a wonderful time putting it together, starting with the earliest LPs that made their way into my Norfolk home in the late 50s, King Joe Oliver and Miriam Makeba – through to Janelle Monae. And, apart from King Oliver, and Hasaan Ibn Ali, I´ve heard nearly all these amazing musicians live. The interview´s in Spanish – but whether you understand it or not, I promise you that the music is very well worth a listen. Thank you, Carlos, for your patience with my relaxed delivery! It´s not that I´m struggling in Spanish, I´m the same in English!
