Mixed Marriage

Tuesdays Noon – 2pm – This show ended in December 2013

Presented by Lloyd Swanton

A perennial favourite with Eastside listeners since its inception in 1998, Mixed Marriage revels in the fruitful results occurring when jazz blends with something else. Presenter Lloyd Swanton says “jazz has been a hybrid music since its very beginnings, and to my ears the most interesting things happening these days are when it is again being reinvigorated by fresh blood from outside.” He should know what he’s talking about, as outside his spot on Eastside, Lloyd is one of Australia’s most experienced musicians; bassist with the legendary Necks and leader of renowned jazz/world ensemble The catholics.
