News & Grooves from the Vortex Jazz Club


Greetings, Supporters and Friends!

 

Our quick run down for the next 7 days. Friday night we have an exciting double representing two different styles of the ‘jazz’ genre. First up is ECM artist Elina Duni (voice), performing with Rob Luft (guitar) and Fred Thomas (piano/dums). This is followed by a late night special with scandi trio Human Being Human: Esben Tjalve (piano / keys), Torben Bjørnskov (bass) and Frederik Bülow (drums). We still have a few tickets left for both ...get them while you can.


Saturday, get tickets for a quartet led by pianist Simon Purcell with a bunch of UK A-listers: Jean Toussaint (sax), Steve Watts (bass) and Mark Taylor (drums).


Sunday’s Vortex Jam is hosted by Helena Kay with a supporting house band that includes Will Arnold-Forster (guitar), Mirko Scarcia (bass) and David Ingamells (drums).


Wednesday we’re back with Trons Tew - a fun quintet, and Thursday, a quintet led by east-London vocalist Meg Bird with the theme a celebration of influence.


Windrush Day is Wednesday 22 June. Two years ago we sucessfully produced the Windrush Suite during lockdown. You can relive the moment. The album is available to download from Bandcamp. See below.

 

Have a good weekend and see you at the club soon.


Stay safe and well,
The Vortex Team
