Belgium’s A New Wave of Jazz label – curated by Dirk Serries – has always connected with the current free improvisers from the UK. The label catalogue output proves it. Their style of interacting and creating is so uniquely in tune with Dirk’s vision and what the label stands for. This, and his fondness for Hundred Years Gallery has motivated him to organise his 2nd label festival in the heart of London’s free improvised music scene.
The festival is a 2-night event on Friday February 7th and Saturday February 8th 2020.
The two nights have their own musical character; Friday evening consists of only duo performances while Saturday night is reserved for trio combinations.
FIRST NIGHT : DUOS
Alan Wilkinson (baritone saxophone & bass clarinet) & Dirk Serries (acoustic guitar)
