Novelist and poet John Harvey is a dedicated jazz fan. His website is called Mellowtone and jazz features in many of his novels and poems. Heâ€™s been working with this quartet for several years celebrating in words and music some of the great jazz musicians of the past - Chet Baker, Billie Holiday, Charlie Parker, Milt Jackson, Thelonious Monk, Lester Young - and, with the 12th and final Charlie Resnick novel published last year, a nod in the direction of Nottinghamshire's own jazz-loving detective.
This performance is part of Derby Book Festival and starts at 9.30 to follow on from Carol Ann Duffyâ€™s show at Derby Cathedral.
