The Vortex offers perhaps the most diverse lineup of any London jazz club, ranging from traditional, contemporary and commercial jazz acts to rock crossovers and the outer reaches of the avant-garde...
'...The atmosphere is incredible & the music is always high quality.
Recommend it highly!' - Phil Robson
In a corner of London, a jazz club, run by volunteers is regarded as one of the most important clubs on the circuit. This short film documents the spirit and love of jazz in London.
The Lume nights return monthly from February. Sunday nights, with doors opening at 7.30.
Jeff Williams is one of the most feted drummers on the New York scene, with a history of collaborations like a Who's Who of jazz, including Stan Getz, Dave Liebman, Dave Holland, Bill Frisell. So his gig on Friday 10 April with his British Quintet (Phil Robson, Josh Arcoleo, Sam Lasserson and Kit Downes) will be a privilege and a joy.
John Renbourn played several times at the Vortex, with Bert Jansch, Robin Williamson and, most recently, a couple of times with Wizz Jones. He enjoyed playing a jazz club! There was indeed quite an overlap between musicians from folk and jazz especially when Pentangle started in the 60s, with jazz bassist Danny Thompson. Click for a video of him at the Vortex last year.
