A New Wave of Jazz

Dutch label tone­float and the pro­lific Flem­ish musi­cian Dirk Ser­ries have been work­ing together closely for years now, but this month, they are tak­ing their col­lab­or­a­tion to a new level. A New Wave of Jazz is the title of a new sub­la­bel of tone­float and its descrip­tion sug­gests that it will be home to music with a ded­ic­ated impro­visa­tional approach, inspired by the free jazz and DIY philo­sophy of Sun Ra and the El Sat­urn label. In this case, that means albums cur­ated by Ser­ries, released on lim­ited edi­tion LPs in cus­tom sleeves.
