Swiss composer and guitarist Dimitri Howald has, with his band ILJA, created a six-headed mythical beast, a fantastic, romantic creature whose limbs reach out in all imaginable harmonic directions. Yes, this thing sprints at 180 miles per hour, barefoot, straight as an arrow, light and free. Its voice a mixture of horn and guitar, its claws drum, tap, brush, until the song fades out, and night closes in over the tundra. Howald sends his six-headed, twelve-handed being, sometimes veering off course, sometimes singing as one, out into the wilderness - a godforsaken place whose bland emptiness is waiting to be filled with delicate poetry, playful rhythms and the harmonies of modern jazz.

VORTEX FUNDRAISING T-SHIRTS:

March 2 2018 two iconic musicians and old friends Dave Holland and Evan Parker joined forces in a fundraiser to show, as well as give their support to the Vortex Jazz Club – a fine institution that has help many a musician at the start of their career. The club has existed without any core funding after its establishment by founder David Mossman over twenty-five years ago. The club needs financial help to keep its operations going. We hope you will show your support by taking out a membership, coming to gigs or donating. You can make a donation by clicking the “donate” tab. We also have some new fundraising T-shirts with a fab design that was commissioned by Tim Berne (Snake Oil) with graphics by Steve Byramn.
