Basement Tapes with Kit Downes/Giacomo Smith

Unaccompanied solos, unorthodox ensemble configurations, extended orchestral compositions, overdubbing: Giuffre was there early on, if not first, on all counts. He became famous for his development of forms of jazz which allowed for free interplay between the musicians, anticipating forms of free improvisation. This Wednesday, Giacomo Smith and Kit Downes reunite for a special night in honour of his legendary legacy.
