Last month I wrote a short list of what was jazz and improv I'd programmed during September. We're still in the middle of this (Asaf Sirkis and Sloth Racket to go!), but I thought I would give a heads-up, because there are a lot of gigs to check out!
- 7 Oct—Atlas (Derby Jazz): Rebecca Nash's lush new quartet. Nick Malcolm is in this too...
- 21 Oct—Alexander Hawkins Ensemble (Derby Jazz)—by default this is the start of The Week, even though it's a Derby Jazz gig. Shabaka Hutchings is in this.
- 22-26 Oct—The Week: five days, ten gigs (Dave Kane's Large Ensemble, Yana, Poulomi Desai, Madwort's Menagerie, Inclusion Principle, Htrio, Alex Bonney, Deemer, Robert Mitchell, WHM).
I'm extremely excited by the prospect of The Week: I hope you are too!
