Terri Lyne Carrington, Joe Lovano and Lucia Cadotsch added to EFG London Jazz Festival

EFG LJF May

This year’s EFG London Jazz Festival, its 27th edition, runs from 15 to 24 November with a number of key additions now confirmed by organisers Serious. Chief among these will be a Kings Place residency from multi-Grammy Award winning drummer, singer and producer Terri Lyne Carrington (above centre) throughout the first weekend of the festival. Known for her work with the likes of Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter and Esperanza Spalding, Carrington has also led her own Mosaic Project to huge acclaim. Her residency will feature her band of saxophonist Morgan Guerin, vocalist Debo Ray and drummer Kassa Overall who will collaborate with a range of UK-based musicians.

Concerts marking the ECM label’s 50th anniversary in the programme include a previously announced headline slot for Norwegian sax star Jan Garbarek at the Royal Fetstival Hall on 17 November, as well as new labelmate Joe Lovano (above left) who’ll be playing music from his ECM debut as a leader, Trio Tapestry, at Queen Elizabeth Hall on the same night. The US tenor titan is joined by the record’s line-up of pianist Marilyn Crispell and percussionist Carmen Castaldi. ECM-signed Polish pianist Marcin Wasilewski also appears with his Trio (Cadogan Hall, 15 Nov). Elsewhere UK free-improv sax heavyweight Trevor Watts, marks a more personal anniversary with his 80th Birthday Celebration at the Purcell Room featuring a stellar line-up of bassist John Edwards, drummer Mark Sanders and his key collaborator Veryan Weston on piano (15 Nov). Also announced is highly-rated US pianist Christian Sands who tops a double-bill with London-based saxophonist Camila George (Cadogan Hall, 19 Nov); and renowned Panamanian pianist Danilo Pérez brings his new Global Messengers band to town for its UK debut (QEH, 22 Nov).

Further concerts include Swiss jazz singer Lucia Cadotsch (above right) who performs music from her album, Speak Low (Purcell Room, 19 Nov), and the hard-swinging legacy of Art Blakey is fired-up over two concerts with former Jazz Messenger Jean Toussaint delivering originals from his Blakey-inspired album, Brother Raymond, for a matinee show, while drummer Ralph Peterson brings a crack-troupe of fellow Messengers alumni – bassist Essiet Essiet, saxophonists Bobby Watson and Bill Pierce, trumpeter Brian Lynch and keyboardist Geoff Keezer – for an evening show (23 Nov). And there's a chance to see SEED Ensemble, saxophonist Cassie Kinoshi's talent-packed 10-piece, at the Jazz Cafe (24 Nov).

These concerts join those already announced in Jazzwise (media partners for the festival) and include: Jazz Voice (RFH, 15 Nov); Cécile McLorin Salvant and Sullivan Fortner (Barbican, 16 Nov); CrossCurrents (Cadogan Hall, 17 Nov); Lars Danielsson Group: Liberetto III (Wigmore Hall, 19 Nov); Makaya McCraven (Village Underground, 19 Nov); Marius Neset: Viaduct (QEH, 21 Nov); Eliane Elias, plus Vinicius Cantuária (Barbican, 22 Nov); Omar Puente and Friends (Kings Place, 22 Nov); BBC Concert Orchestra, Nu Civilisation Orchestra, String Ting, Misha Mullov Abbado (QEH, 23 Nov); Swingin’ With Strings feat. Claire Martin (Cadogan Hall, 24 Nov) and Dan Tepfer: Natural Machines (Kings Place, 24 Nov).
