Jazzowy Alchemik was waiting for You at 8pm CET (28.11.2010) with Billy, Johnny and Ken

Today at we'll have another strange mix. We'll start with Billy Strayhorn's classic "Take the 'A' Train" (birthday today), then celebrate late Johnny 'Mbizo' Dyani (birthday tomorrow) with couple of pieces, all of this interlayered with
-Ken Vandermark solo inspirations (Ken is playing solo today at Alchemia)
-two pieces from just reviewed Locksmith Isidore cd
-two pieces by Cukunft (polish answer to Radical Jewish Culture movement, they're plaing in Krakow this friday)
-and 1 improv selected from "Resonance" box  by Tim Daisy, Mark Tokar, Steve Swell, Mikolaj Trzaska (group called "Inner Ear" with Tim, Steve, Mikolaj and Per-Ake Holmlander is playing tomorrow the last concert of this year's Krakow Autumn Jazz Festival, followed by a party with Ken Vandermark as a DJ (!); Mark is playing on saturday with Waclaw Zimpel, Klaus Kugel and Robert Kusiolek).
We'll finish with "now for something completely different" two pieces of Trifonidis Downtown Project which is very much a soundtrack to a not created yet movie about Warszawa (very different project with the same leader - Trifonidis Free Orchestra is playing on saturday as a part of Jazz Juniors festival).
