Vision Festival 2011

Duration:
2 hours
First broadcast:
Monday 27 June 2011

Jez Nelson presents some of the best bits from the 2011 Vision Festival in New York. The festival celebrates the avant-jazz scene of the lower east side of the city, also programming international musicians who share its innovative disregard for convention. Among the festival highlights this year are hard-hitting trio Pulverize the Sound, Paradoxical Frog with guest viola player Mat Maneri, and the debut of Planetary Unknown, a supergroup that features the first collaboration in 30 years by saxophonist David S. Ware and pianist Cooper-Moore.

Also in the programme, New York poet Steve Dalachinsky reads poetry about the Vision Festival, commissioned specially by Jazz on 3.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Studio guests: Nate Chinen & Steve Dalachinsky
