Joe Pettitt

 

Bass player and big band leader Joe Pettitt talks about the blues, running a big band and finally explains what “swing” actually is.

He's worked with the Ronnie Scott's Big Band, the John Wilson Orchestra, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and South Bank Symphony Orchestra. If that wasn't enough he's also travels the country as the leader of the Len Phillips Big Band.

Music this week includes John Mayall and Dr John and this week's guest request comes from Joao Wolf all the way from Brazil.
