The festival now starts on 16th April at the Vortex and is just now getting confirmed. But we are particularly excited that it will also include Irene Schweizer who is celebrating her 75th birthday this year and hasn’t visited UK for over a decade. (Though she was here in 1961 working behind the bar at Ronnie Scotts making sandwiches!) And others hopefully involved will include Sylvie Courvoisier, Alexander von Schlippenbach, Louis Moholo (who first played with Irene in 1963 when the Blue Notes first left South Africa), Aki Takase, Ingrid Laubrock, Sleepthief, Mark Feldman and a number of the leading Swiss musicians such as Lucas Niggli, Pierre Favre, Christoph Irniger and Sylvie Courvoisier.

It has been about 4 years in the making since initial discussions with Patrik Landolt in Zurich. Until the funding was sorted out was not simple and so, only now, can we start firming up the line-up.
The only other time that Intakt has done something similar is when they did a two week festival at the Stone in New York.
It is also the first time that the Vortex is giving over such a substantial period to one particular festival like this.
Unfortunately, the concert by the London Jazz Composers Orchestra on 15 April has now been cancelled. What a shame.
