Happy marriage of jazz and ‘contemporary’

The Jazzlines commission from pianist and composer Hans Koller, Twelve Re-inventions for George Russell, which had its world premiere at the CBSO Centre in Birmingham on Saturday as part of the Frontiers Festival, was a really successful coming together of players from the jazz and contemporary classical music worlds. I haven’t written about it on this site because I was asked to cover it for Jazzwise magazine.

  • There’s a brief online review here with two pictures from John Watson, and look out for a fuller one in the May edition of the magazine.
