Hannes Riepler’s guitar has rung out in the Vortex regularly over the past three years, not least as the host of our Sunday sessions. Here he invites one of the great Dutch saxophonists, whom he first met when he was studying in Amsterdam.
Julie Sassoon returns to London from her new home in Berlin with a new international quartet, involving saxophonist Lothar Ohlmeier on saxophone, Meinrad Kneer on bass and Rudy Fischerlehner on drums. They will be launching a new album on the Jazzwerkstatt label. Her last visit playing solo opposite Enrico Pieranunzi was mesmerising.
