This week's PBS Feature Album is Hearing by icon of the Australian and international jazz scenes, Mike Nock. In a career spanning more than 65 years, including 25 years in the US, he has worked with the world’s top jazz artists and garnered a swag of awards, including being inducted into the Australian Jazz Hall of Fame. 

His discography of more than 35 albums, recorded with his Trio, Quartet, Big Small Band and many other collaborators, includes ARIA, AIR and Jazz Bell award winners, but this is his first solo album since the chart-topping Touch, released 30 years ago almost to the day, in 1993, and recorded in the very same space, the ABC’s Eugene Goossens Hall. The 13 tracks on Hearing explore the vast range of colours and moods that can be conjured from keys of a piano, and prove again Mike Nock’s incomparable genius as both composer and performer. 

Tune in all this week to hear tracks from Hearing, and PBS Members have the chance to win a copy of the album on CD, simply email your name and membership number to   before midnight Sunday September 3.
