The Drift will be returning to 3RRR from 23 July in the new slot of Saturdays 4-6pm. Though the show and host will be familiar, the resurrected Drift will have a decidedly jazz/global/avant skew. Here’s the new brief:
The Drift explores the intersections of jazz, ethnic and improvised music. Follow the unpredictable traces of traditional and improvised sounds through the modern music that they’ve inspired and informed. Rather than attempt to pin down origins, definitions and derivatives, The Drift chases the rhythms, timbres and moods of jazz, improvised and traditional music. In the words of James Brown, “what it is is what it is.”
See you Saturday!
