Yorkshireman Roger Beaujolais has been a regular name on the British jazz scene for over 30 years. He began playing jump and jive with Ray Gelato in The Chevalier Brothers in the 1980s following through with one of the defining sounds of the 'Acid Jazz' era emerging from London clubland soon after with his band Vibraphonic in the early 1990s. Along the way he has also played with some big names and bands in pop and rock but over the last 20 years has concentrated solely on playing his jazz in his own comfort zone. Roger dropped in to speak with Chris Philips on The Blueprint to talk about his latest quartet album 'Sunset.'
