Swiss surveyors of superior jazz sides Intakt are set for a series of colossal happenings in London next year. Taking place between 15-27 April 2017, the label will launch its festival with an opening-day event celebrating the 70th birthday of bassist and improv pioneer Barry Guy. Kings Place is the party plaza which'll host a performance by Guy’s London Jazz Composers Orchestra (the ensemble’s first UK performance in over 15 years).

The festivities then relocate to venerable jazz venue The Vortex, where final programme details are still being shored up. However, expect iconic artists such as Irène Schweizer, Louis Moholo-Moholo, Alexander von SchIippenbach, Ingrid Laubrock, Aki Takase and Mark Feldman all to be in extremely close attendance.
