Contemporary Jazz and Improvisation
NOTES: Working closely to the brief - with Andy Park - largely due to the challenging nature of improvisation and the realisation of a production which has no/little form or structure:
- 'Great Black Music' - the Art Ensemble of Chicago in studio and location in Chicago, Illinois. (TX 1983)
- 'Crossing Bridges' - six notable guitarists of improvisation including Ron Geesin, Keith Rowe, Fred Frith, Hans Reichel, John Russell, Brian Godding, recorded in studio. (TX 06/08/83)
- 'Hoarded Dreams' - a commissioned improvised work by jazz composer Graham Collier for the Bracknell Jazz Festival. (TX 06/03/85)
- 'SleeveNotes' - a selection of clips from the music specials, presented by Peter Clayton. (TX 03/11/82)
Commissioning Editor: Andy Park
Why digitise and remaster?
With renewed interest in the Bright Thoughts product particularly with the 'boomer' generation - viewers who are 45+ - there is a great potential for some shows to be digitised and remastered specifically targeted to those audiences to meet the growing demand in 'view-on-demand'.
