Adventures in Sound

Highlights from Adventures In Sound, an afternoon of cutting-edge improvisation at the EFG London Jazz Festival, curated by Jazz on 3.

This year's event features short sets from Polish piano trio RGG, Danish saxophonist Julie Kjaer, virtuoso harmonica-player Philip Achille, and Dinosaur, a young London-based quartet led by trumpeter and BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Laura Jurd. The bands are also scrambled into one-off groups who have never played together before, and these improvisations also feature British improv veterans John Edwards and Steve Noble, and American drummer Gerry Hemingway among others.
