London, United Kingdom

A fantastic opportunity to see two huge talents Dave Holland & Evan Parker close up in the intimate setting of the Vortex Jazz Club. Holland and Parker have been friends since first meeting in London in the 1960s. During that time they performed together frequently, often at The Little Theater Club, and played on the landmark recording Karyobin which has just been remixed and reissued on Emanem Records. Holland and Parker, along with Craig Taborn and Ches Smith, appear on a new recording Uncharted Territories, due for release in May 2018 on Dare2 Records.

Parker who has had a monthly residency at the club for a number of years described the Vortex as 'my haven from the demands of the road... the Vortex is for me, a space to play "free jazz". I cannot imagine life without it'. New York-based Holland has dropped into the club on a few occasions to take in the odd Evan Parker gig as well as to take in the unique Vortex vibe created by the musicians who perform here and volunteers who look after the place. Holland says '...the Vortex plays a vital role in the cultural life of London providing performance opportunities for both a UK and international community of musicians... its imaginative programming introduces new listening experiences to its audience'.

We are delighted that Holland and Parker have joined forces to play together at the club Friday 2 March 2018. These two giant musicians will donate 100% of ticket sales to the club. The benefit concerts consist of two independent sets. The first set will start at 20:15 and end at 21.30. People will need to leave as quickly as possible so that ticket holders for the second set can come in. The second set will start at 22:00 and end at 23:00.

'I hope you will join us to support a healthy future for the Vortex and if you can, please show your additional support by making a contribution' - Dave Holland
