L'anno nuovo inizia nel migliore dei modi per il Vortex Jazz Club londinese, beneficiario di un cospicuo finanziamento biennale da parte della Paul Hamlyn Foundation a sostegno della programmazione culturale e musicale all'interno del club e soprattutto all'esterno, nell'antistante Gillett Square e più in generale nel quartiere di Dalston. Congratulazioni!

The Vortex is a volunteer-led, not-for-profit organization, based in the heart of Dalston providing a platform for music outside of the mainstream, including jazz, improvised and experimental music. Now celebrating its 25th birthday, the core of the club’s activity relates to the programme of gigs at its 100 capacity venue within the Dalston Culture House, as well as other larger spaces, which adds up to nearly 400 performances a year.
For 25 years The Vortex has maintained a reputation for innovative programming and has provided a platform for both emerging and established talent in the jazz, experimental and contemporary music scene and is proud of an international reputation that belies the venue’s size. It is consistently selected as one of the top 150 jazz clubs in the world by Downbeat magazine, was short-listed by Music Week as one of the best live promoters of 2011 and voted into the top 10 London venues by readers of Time Out in 2012.
