A weekly, later twice-weekly jazz show from Southern, featuring regulars The Dudley Moore Trio and Bobby Samson. The show was directed by Peter Frazer-Jones and also featured Alex Orgar as reporter.


There was an audience present for each show and the set design resembled a jazz club. It's probable that Moore was recording these shows while performing in Beyond The Fringe in the West End.


The show was scheduled to run for 13 shows but was extended, until it was replaced by another jazz show Tubby Plays Hayes.
