The Sarah Ward Collection
Sarah presents Sarah Ward's Collection 7pm - 10pm Sundays, and Jazz Travels, Tuesdays from 6pm.
Sarah Ward's Collection is the perfect way to relax and unwind at the weekend, a shimmering collection of ballads from iconic players like Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter and Bill Evans to the deep, passionate voices of Sarah Vaughn, Carmen Mcrae, Billie Holiday and many of the newer stars in the jazz firmament.
Sarah also presents Jazz Travels a unique journey around the world with music in the backpack, snapshots of fabled cities and exotic destinations and delightfully personal stories from the likes of Madeline Peyroux on busking in Paris to Japanese pianist Hiromi learning to 'hug' when she first arrived in America and saxophonist and composer Tim Garland taking inspiration from stormy seas and skies.
Sarah's love of music and meeting and talking to the people making it has taken her through the BBC, Capital Radio and Classic FM but home is Jazz FM, revelling in playing the music she adores and passing on rich and moving stories from jazz's fabulous history and brilliant new adventures.
