The Piper Sunday Service with DJ Tony 'Jazz Dad' Higgins (BBE) - 1pm - Free entry
Praise be! The Piper welcomes his eminence Tony 'Jazz Dad' Higgins to deliver the Sunday Service on 8th December. Spreading the groovy gospel of a divinely righteous all-vinyl sermon of jazz, funk, Latin, Afrobeat and other spiritual goodness direct to your soul. What better way to ease in a Sunday afternoon? As Charlie Mingus said: "Better git in your soul!!"
Recently, Tony has worked closely with renowned disco/jazz//funk label @bbemusic on 'J Jazz', a compilation and album reissue series of Japanese jazz rarities from the 70s and 80s. Volume 2 of 'J Jazz' is available now from @bbemusic: www.bbemusic.com/downloads/j-jazz-volume-2/
With a background in music/artist/producer management, press and promotion, Tony also worked in TV for several years, working on landmark BBC documentaries including 'Jazz Britannia' and 'Seven Ages of Rock'. He produced a live concert film in Los Angeles with multi-Grammy winning legend Emmylou Harris and is a music consultant to several specialist record labels, providing sleeve notes and advising on deep archive reissues.
