The pair discuss Stephen's latest BBC Two series, Dancing On The Edge. Set in 1930s London, the series follows the fictitious Louis Lester Band as they try to make it among the city's aristocratic audiences. The pair talk about the rich music and fascinating characters of the era, like Snake Hips Johnson and Duke Ellington.
Stephen also shares some of his new-found favourite early jazz tracks with Jamie, as well as original tracks from his series' soundtrack.
