Albert Schimmel
Growing up with trad jazz in Europe I still enjoy this type of music.
One can't go past the Dutch Swing College Band but my favourite band is Chris Barber and his Jazzmen. This gives you an indication of the type of program to expect from me.
I do play the older bands like Jack Teagarden, Humphrey Lyttelton, Sidney Bechet with a few big bands thrown in. My favourite being Benny Goodman. I have a good selection of Australian trad jazz records from Graeme Bell to the New Melbourne Jazz band.

Maurie Besgrove
I like various types of jazz, especially instrumental, but not very much of the highly technical improvisational playing.
I particularly like the modern jazz of Don Burrows, James Morrison and Bob Barnard and their associates and older music of performers such as Dave Brubeck, Kenny Ball and Acker Bilk.
Other jazz types I like and present are nostalgia, traditional, Dixie, swing, big bands, Latin, gospel, blues.

These and other presenters of great jazz invite you to tune in every Tuesday and Thursday night
