Radio 3 Highlights

The 200th show of 3 O'Clock Jump

This week 3 O'Clock Jump presents its 200th show. That's 200 weeks of jazz of many types, all of it the best that can be found on the airwaves.

In those 200 weeks Charles Martin has introduced new jazz artists like Snarky Puppy and Brandee Younger, said farewell to old ones like Ornette Coleman and Charlie Haden, and noted the continued achievements of stalwart players and singers who still have plenty to say than we thought - people like drummer Jimmy Cobb and singer Catherine Russell. He's unearthed buried treasures from Peggy Lee and Wes Montgomery, gone to Cuba, Israel, France and beyond to find music that makes you tighten your earbuds and send texts like "TURN ON RADIO 3 NOW" to your friends.

This week, 3 O'Clock Jump will present - what else? - the best of the best. Charles Martin will cherry pick some of his favourite tracks from the past 199 shows, and we promise they will be gems - hard swinging, intriguing, soulful and great fun. Don't miss this once-every-200-weeks edition of 3 O'clock Jump.
(1 August, Saturday from 3 to 5 p.m.)
