BBC Radio 3 Freeness: Surprising Solos

Corey Mwamba features soloists who expand the possibilities of their instrument, including a famous drum solo by Art Blakey. Nestled amongst a series of hard bop tracks on the 1964 album The Freedom Rider.

Blakey’s solo shows how moments of freeness and liberation are fundamental to jazz. Plus there’s new music from guitarist Chris Sharkey whose debut solo album sounds nothing like what you think of when you hear the words ‘guitar solo’.
