Julie Sassoon + Hannes Riepler / Jasper Blom

LONDON Vortex Downstairs
11 Gillett Square
N16 8AZ


Julie Sassoon returns to London from her new home in Berlin with a new international quartet, involving saxophonist Lothar Ohlmeier on saxophone, Meinrad Kneeron bass and Rudy Fischerlehner on drums. They will be launching a new album on the Jazzwerkstatt label. Her last visit playing solo opposite Enrico Pieranunzi was mesmerising.

Hannes Riepler's guitar has rung out in the Vortex regularly over the past three years, not least as the host of the venue's Sunday sessions. Here he invites one of the great Dutch saxophonists, whom he first met when he was studying in Amsterdam. Jasper is playing at the Vortex for the first time.
