July 17-19. Konfrontation Festival. Nickelsdorf, Austria.

In the tiny town of Nickelsdorf on the Austria-Hungarian border at the Konfrontation Festival.

On the 17th I played solo. Tonight I play with my trio with Jon Rose and Gerry Hemingway. Lovely to play again with these long-time friends and stellar musicians.

The festival itself is a phenomenon. Now in something like its 37th year, it is one of the major festivals of improvised music and free jazz in the world, in the most unlikely little truck-stop town. People fly in from around the world to be here! There is only one reason it is here, and that is the passion and hard work of Hans Falb, the festival organizer and proprietor of Nickelsdor’s only real restaurant. An extraordinary person.
