Jazzahead Festival 2011
Jez Nelson presents highlights from the 2011 Jazzahead festival in Bremen, Germany. Over the last six years this has become a major international convention for the jazz industry and its fans, and a showcase for mainly European jazz. The programme features music from Finland's Kalle Kalima & K-18, inspired by the films of Stanley Kubrick and David Lynch; Berlin-based sextet Transit Room, whose finely balanced textures blend free and composed material; and French quartet Ozma, combining high-energy riffs and angular top-lines.
