In England, they will be performing @ Barbican (London) with a superband, in celebration of his 75th birthday (he was born on June 22, 1936).

Described by Miles Davis as “one of the most important musicians on the planet” and nicknamed the ‘Sorcerer’, he is as likely to produce a piece for kitchen utensils as improvised solos on keyboard or flute - or leading his long established, infectiously swinging Brazilian band in partnership with the all star British band formed back in the 90s to play his exhilarating big band music.
