emuliJazz podcast

The emuliJazz podcast ran for 23 episodes starting in October 2020; the final episode went live on 1 October 2022. Sadly, due to pressure of other commitments with Jazz in Britain, among others, I decided to call a halt and the podcast is no longer available to download. However, if  anyone is interested in copies of any of the episodes, I have compiled a complete playlist below; please feel free to email me on contact@emuli.uk and I will send the episode of your choice via WeTransfer.
