From London’s Vortex:

Winters / Marshall / Adato
The fine voice of Portia Winters and the percussion / electronics forays of Illi Adato are joined by the astounding, and much in-demand tuba player Oren Marshall. A Mopomoso debut for this established trio, well known to the London free improvisation scene, they promise a music of energy, colour and lightness of touch.

Sylvia Hallett solo

The Haman Quintet
Welcome UK debut for this Berlin based quintet – Alison Blunt (violin), Anna Kaluza & Manuel Miethe (sax), Horst Nonnenmacher (bass) an Nikolai Meinhold (piano) – whose collective CVs range from Sam Rivers to the Linchopinger Symphoniker and Paul Bley to the Berlin Improvisers Orchestra taking in cabaret, dance, film and theatre music along the way. Intellegent broad canvas free improvisation to delight the imagination.

Tuesday 20 | 8.30pm | £7 adv / £8 door | Book online

Hanslip, Hurley, Sanders

Comprising two of the new generation of UK improvisers – Mark Hanslip (saxophone) and Mike Hurley (piano), along with Mark Sanders (drums), one of the established masters in the field, the three members’ diverse musical backgrounds combine to create an intense, free-flowing and melodic music that defies easy categorization. Mark Hanslip (tenor saxophone) is… “Rapidly becoming one of the more original voices on the London improv scene” (Daniel Spicer, BBC Music).

Wednesday 21 | 8.30pm

Hadouk Trio

After the success of the albums ‘Utopies’ and ‘Baldamore’, and having been awarded the prestigious prize ‘Victoires de la Musique Jazz’ in 2008, Hadouk Trio is back with a new album, ‘Air Hadouk’. Didier Malherbe (doudouk, soprano saxophone, khen & flute), Loy Ehrlich (hajouj, gumbass, keyboards, kora) and Steve Shehan (percussion, djembe, hang), follow in the footsteps of Hermann Melville and Saint Exupéry, Hadouk give us escapism. Thus the khen, (Laotian mouth organ), is wrapped in electrical energy, the hang, (steel drum), enters into the world of chromaticism – the doudouk steps into of the shoes of jazz – le hajouj, a bass originally from the desert made from camel skin, becomes a piccolo, while the bahu flute, with its free Chinese reed, creates a wave of movement.

Thursday 22 | 8.30pm

Celebrating the release of the new CD “Together in Zero Space”, on the psi label, ‘Grutronic combines electronic and acoustic sound to create a textured, shifting soundscape, bringing many different influences to the music – contemporary classical, free jazz, improvisation, funk and abstract electronica. Stephen Grew (keyboards / processing), Richard Scott (WiGi / Buchla Lighting / Blippoo Box), Nicholas Grew (transduction), David Ross (drosscillator) and Evan Parker (soprano saxophone).

From the Montreal Gazette:

Spontaneous, audacious, innovative, passionate, and free.
These are among the adjectives used by organizers Wednesday to describe the nine-day Off Jazz Festival as they unveiled the program that begins Friday, Oct. 7. This year’s theme is rediscovering childhood innocence, the challenge for 180 musicians playing 27 concerts at nine city venues. A mix of written, or charted, and improvised music, the festival is a showcase for local musicians and their creative energy.
