In May this year, Jack abruptly left Capital FM with news later unfolding that he had actually been pushed out in a restructuring plan that also saw the exit of Vincent Ochieng a few months later. His dedicated fans and avid listeners of Jazz music can now find a new home at Nation FM and still get some of the unique features that Jack introduced them to such as the Jazz Quotient or JQs as he refers to them.
His new show, though called Jazz Essentials, will still feature Jazz, Blues and Soul music with a lot of listener engagement both on the show as well as on Social media. He was already getting listener requests in his first show.
Andy Mutua – Hey Jack can you please play Fences and Barriers by Incognito off their album Adventures in Black Sunshine …in keeping with the Funky theme …
Finally Jazz lovers can now have a choice every Sunday on which channel to tune in to. With that, leave you with my type of Jazz as we count down to Sunday.
