Chris Gilvear

Chris Gilvear presents Jazz FM Breakfast at the Weekend from 6am on Saturdays and Sundays.

Chris says the best time to listen to jazz and blues is when you are not quite awake and you let the music sink into your soul. To that end, join him each weekend for some chilled out vibes, funky grooves, classic tunes and cutting edge cuts, everything from classic Donny Hathaway and Steely Dan to the newest sounds like Gregory Porter and Jose James. 

Always a record collector, Chris soon became engrossed in the diverse range of music offered by the station and has become hugely passionate for all things jazz, blues, funk, soul and swing. He tries to see as many live events as possible, always on the lookout for exciting new music. He says his highlight of the year has to be the Love Supreme Festival with so many incredible performers and broadcasters in one location - heaven!
