Pori Jazz Festival New Confirmations!
Seven new acts will be added to the line-up of Pori Jazz main concerts. Among other acts are the high-profile bands lead by percussionist Jack DeJohnette and saxophonist Steve Coleman. The line-up for the Concerts in Kirjurinluoto is now complete and the stage-specific programmes have been released. Jack DeJohnette will be playing in Pori on Thursday July 14th. Along with saxophonist Ravi Coltrane and bassist Matthew Garrison. DeJohnette – Coltrane – Garrison is all about closing of the circle because half a century ago DeJohnette was part of a band lead by Ravi Coltrane’s father John Coltrane and the bassist was Matthew Garrison’s old man Jimmy Garrison. This big-name, two-generation Trio recently released their new album with the legendary record label ECM. Learn more here.
