18th Listening Post: Around the World in 80 minutes
 
 
Jazz is the voice of a people trying to find their place in a constantly changing environment. Though the voices and the techniques may be contemporary, the issues are universal, stitching cultures and milieus together across time.

In 1872, Phileas Fogg and his valet, Passerpartout set out to travel around the world in eighty days to win a wager. 140 years after the publication of Jules Verne's amazing novel, we set out to recreate the journey - musically. This fortnight's Jazz Listening Post presents the music one can hear as one retraces this epic journey. A journey of discovery of our collective roots through Jazz.
