Mace Francis is a big band composer that hails from Western Australia, he has a new recording out called "Isolation Emancipation." He will be talking to us about how he got into composing for big band, how his studies with legendary composer Bob Brookmeyer has shaped him as a composer and how it has guided him as artistic director of WAYJO, the Western Australian Jazz Youth Orchestra.
We will also feature a track that friend to the podcast Elly Hoyt has kindly given us access to, it is called "Speaking in Code" written by another friend of the show and amazing composer Nat Bartsch.
Then to finish the podcast we will hear a new track from my latest recording which is out September the 5th 2022. The recording is called “In the Blood” and the track is “Another Green.”
