After opening last May in its new premises in Dalston the Vortex jazz club has carefully built up an eclectic and challenging programme that last week saw the last ever gig by the Gilad Atzmon Orient House Ensemble shortly to be followed by two rare gigs by John Taylor on 23 and 24 January, one with the trio of Palle Danielsson and Martin France and the other a solo set. Tickets are bound to go fast so book early!
