The Vortex & Cafe OTO celebrate Evan Parker's 70th. 21, 23, 25 Oct at The Vortex
Performing music from the forthcoming album “Living Standards”, this dynamic group, part of the innovative F-IRE Collective explores the edges of jazz territory, re-imagining the poetry of the standard, its rich colours and subtle tonalities. Drawing inspiration from Paul Motian’s seminal recordings “On Broadway, Vols. 1-5″, this collaboration between some of the UKs most individual musicians puts out the feelers for new directions in the jazz format.
Also presenting a new project of songs by the great composer and bassist, Charles Mingus.
