Film: “John Jack – I improvised”

John Jack (1934-2017) was a great friend of the Vortex and the music that it promotes. He came several times a month until his death in September 2017.

I interviewed him in August 2017, particularly focussing on his early years, up to and including his management of Ronnie Scott’s Old Place. This version was originally shown at a seminar of Radio Jazz Research in Germany in April 2018.

We were most happy that the film got made. It is directed by Leo Hoffmann and co-produced by Oliver Weindling and Bernd Hoffmann. There will be more to come. Your comments on this would be most welcomed, as to how we could get it better. Email
