Clean Feed Fest and the New Languages Festival Reviewed writes about both of these festivals.

By default and by design, there is no firm center of avant-garde jazz culture. Its music can be freely improvised or densely plotted, ecstatic or brooding, concussive or tranquil. So on some level it was fitting that an accident of timing brought an overlap of the New Languages Festival, in its fifth year, and the Clean Feed Fest, in its fourth. Both present a cavalcade of independent-minded artists, but neither makes any comprehensive claims.

Moving Sounds Festival Review has words about this avant-garde fest.

The Moving Sounds Festival means its title to be taken in every possible way. The works performed during this three-day event are meant to be moving, if not always emotionally then viscerally or intellectually. Some of the pieces make significant use of spatial elements: the sounds move around the stage. And because the ambitious schedule of concerts, symposiums and exhibitions is split between two locations — the Austrian Cultural Forum and Le Poisson Rouge — the sounds are moving around town as well.

All About Jazz is publishing a seven-part review of the festival.

New York City’s annual Vision Festival is a unique showcase for avant jazz in such profusion and diversity that it attracts a returning audience from across the US and indeed the globe. At a time when other outlets for the music are closing or moving out of Manhattan, the Vision Festival has cemented its place in the calendar as a reliable must-see event for hometown fans too, with some 37 performances concentrated into seven nights.

Perspective on Vision Festival XIV

Lyn Horton reviews the recent Vision Festival.

Response to the Vision Festival, held in NYC for the past fourteen years, resists prosaic declarations and superlatives. Rather the Festival inspires poetry because the senses are stimulated beyond simple sentences; it is a cultural event that includes visual art, dance and music. In the words of William Parker: “There is nothing not to enjoy.”
