England calling - and Swinging - on the MCG Jazz Spotlight Hour - Friday and Sunday Nights at 6

MCG Jazz just got back from a swinging trip to England with Smithsonian Jazz - and on reflection, Marty Ashby and Renée Govanucci realized how many great jazz artists come from England.

On this edition of the MCG Jazz Spotlight, sounds and stories from jazz artists with British roots - Annie Ross, Jamie Cullum, Marian McPartland - and even Rolling Stones drummer, Charlie Watts.

Plus a charming story - with hamburgers - about George Shearing with Nancy Wilson at MCG Jazz in Manchester (the one in Pittsburgh, not England!)
