PMB S02E05 Jean-Jacques Perrey Jamboree (Jean-Jacques Perrey, Kai Winding, Gershon Kingsley, Billy Mure, Harry Breuer, Gilbert Sigrist, David Chazam, Dana Countryman)

PMB S02E05 Jean-Jacques Perrey JamboreePatron saint of the show, Jean-Jacques Perrey, recently moved on from this planet to spend eternity with the stars. His music was a perfect example of all the things we love at PMB: humour, virtuosity, ping-pong stereo, the Moog synthesizer, tape loops, farmyard animals and even the electric sitar.

This is our tribute to the great man – and such was the quality and quantity of his output that we’ve managed to put together a whole show of his music without playing a single track we’ve played on the podcast before.
