Next collaboration is a brave cross genre mix were the legendary saxophonist Steve Williamson (from Jazz Warriors and a succesful solo career) will team up with the Swedish folk star Emilia Amper on keyharp and vocals, and the amazing drummer Marque Gilmore (Joe Zawinul, Omar Sousa and others).
The first in a series of six collaborations in which Swedish and UK-based musicians will create and perform new live music together during 2018-2019 will take place at the Vortex on 18 November featuring Emilia Martensson, with Swedish harmonica wizard Filip Jers.
At the event, all the UK-based artists will be presented. The project is organised by Musikcentrum Öst/Sweden, the Vortex Jazz Club and Emilia Mårtensson in collaboration with The Embassy of Sweden and Svensk Jazz. Jazz Alloy is supported by Musikverket.
