Jazztronica trio Szun Waves have just released the video for 'Moon Runes', the second single to be taken from their critically acclaimed sophomore album, New Hymn to Freedom, which is out now on the Leaf Label. Featuring electronic music producer Luke Abbott, renowned Australian drummer Laurence Pike and saxophonist/electronics man Jack Wyllie (of Portico Quartet) the trio explore nebulas soundscapes, space jazz and rolling beats. Here the video for 'Moon Runes' is directed and created by video artist Sam Wiehl – and features surreal, cellular moons morphing and moving to a dystopian electronica soundtrack.

Catch Szun Waves on tour this autumn at the following dates: Broadcast, Glasgow (21 Nov); Oval Space, London (w/Ulrich Schnauss, 22 Nov); Soup Kitchen, Manchester (24 Nov); Headrow House, Leeds (26 Nov); Hink Festival, The Hague, Netherlands (1 Dec); Norwich Arts Centre, Norwich (2 Dec); The Exchange, Bristol (4 Dec) and NCI Club, Cambridge (6 Dec).

The Royal Albert Hall's venue-within-a-venue, The Elgar Room, has a busy Late Night Jazz programme throughout this year's EFG London Jazz Festival. Pianist Alex Curtis' genre-hopping Sonic Brew sextet kick things off (16 Nov), with vocalist Daisy Chute, violinist Thomas Gould, six-string bass wiz Kevin Glasgow and double-drums/percussion from Jamie Murray and Sophie Alloway all combining on originals and covers from the group's forthcoming debut album, Patterns.

This is followed by acclaimed pianist Elliot Galvin (above left), of Mercury-nominated band Dinosaur, who appears with his Trio (19 Nov), while guitarist Jon Speedy leads his Afro-jazz-fusion band The Boom Yeah (20 Nov). Four emerging vocal talents complete the festival week with appearances from hotly tipped singer Cherise Adams-Burnett (above centre, 21 Nov); Sarah Vaughn and Billie Holiday-inspired Jo Harrop, who lines-up with compelling young saxophonist Alex Hitchcock (22 Nov); imaginative vocalist Fini Bearman (above right), who launches her new album, This Is Not America (23 Nov) and Australian chanteuse Karen Lane explores classics from the Great American Songbook (24 Nov).

Further late night jazz gigs include Alina Bzhezhinska (27 Sept); The MGM Musicals (4 Oct); Joanna Eden Quartet (11 Oct); The Jazz Of Dudley Moore (18 Oct) and Bahala (25 Oct). Jazzwise is media partner for the Late Night Jazz series.
