This is a special event at the Vortex, a club which thrives on the chances to hear new and partnerships. Luís Vicente is a Portugese trumpet player, improviser and composer. He has recorded several times for the Clean Feed label and works with the likes of John Dikeman, Rodrigo Amado and Wilbert De Joode. This tour will be Luis’ first meeting with Vortex regulars Olie Brice and Mark Sanders.
“Trumpeter Vicente is a significant emerging talent, a brassy, forceful trumpeter with a quick mind…”
Stuart Broomer, Point Of Departure
Olie Brice is not just an innovator of the new generation of bass players and as a foundation of bands such as Entropi, but also as a leader of his own band, and also bringing into to the Vortex some musicians who don’t (but should) play here enough, such as with Achim Kaufmann, Kirk Knuffke and others. “Versatile and slinking” (Peter Margasak, Downbeat)
