Giovanni – 20 sep

In 1969, in Munich, Manfred Eicher founded ECM Records. It was to become the pre-eminent Jazz label representing heavy weights such as Jan Garbarek, Chick Corea, Keith Jarrett and my current favorite, Arvo Part who along with the likes of Nils Frahm make up the new school of Modern Classical. Next weekend we celebrate with concerts by one of ECMs newest greats, pianist, Giovanni Guidi. Jonno Sweetman plays drums, Rus Nerwich sax, Hein vd Geyn upright bass and Lee Thompson trumpet. Youngblood on the 20th
