Featured on Jazz Up Late this week... tracks from Splinters, Henry Cow, Fast'n'Bulbous, Massacre, Lacy Pool and The Subterraneans.

Our main feature comes from a cassette recording made in 1972 that documented an incredible musical meeting of British jazz greats. Splinters was a one-off band convened by alto saxophonist Trevor Watts featuring tenor sax giant Tubby Hayes, trumpeter Kenny Wheeler, pianist Stan Tracey, double-bassist Jeff Clyne and legendary drummers John Stevens and Phil Seamen. The recording of their first public performance at London's 100 Club was recently released on CD.

Also on the playlist, guitarist Ren Walters from Melbourne, Sydney's The Subterraneans and the Gerard Masters Trio, Jeff 'Tain' Watts, Henry Threadgill's Zooid, Pandelis Karayorgis, and the Gebhard Ullman/Steve Swell 4.
