This was the launch of the first ever Match&Fuse Zürich! A 3-day festival with a debate, gigs and a late-night party, doing it in proper stylee. Full line ups are below.
Huge thanks to all the musicians and promotors and venues and photographers involved. Once again the risk of putting contemporary improv next to deep electronica and including artists who completely defy definition paid off and it was a real music treat.
A Facebook gallery and videos will be online shortly. London Jazz News review.
