Delighted that two Babel-related artists showcasing at Jazzahead in 2018. Hermia/Ceccaldi/Darrifourcq and Emilia Martensson. 2 out of 17 in European Jazz Meeting is a pretty good strike rate! http://jazzahead.de/en/…

Celebrating Mike Gibbs’ 80th birthday – First of 2 Nights...
Mike Gibbs is one of this country’s leading composers and arrangers, since arriving here at the end of the 1960s. It is a thrill to the Vortex that the London shows for his birthday should be at the Vortex. It’s going to be a stellar big band, worthy of the musician that Mike is.
