Looks like there's good stuff on the way from the BBC:

Jez Nelson and the Jazz on 3 team continue to prove that Jazz is not dead (and neither is it smelling funny) with a great selection of gigs and sessions from cutting edge bands. Upcoming are sets from the trio of Ellery Eskelin, Andrea Parkins and Jim Black (13th Feb); drummer Bobby Previte's homage to surrealist painter Joan Miro featuring some of the finest players from Downtown New York (20th Feb); plus a live set from young Britjazz outfit Polar Bear, led by ace drummer Seb Rochford (27th Feb). As usual, all the programmes will be available to listen to for a week online... Jazz on 3 - Fridays, 11.30 pm, Radio 3
