"One of the most influential jazz labels in music history, Blue Note, celebrates its 80th birthday this year - reason enough for Siggi Loch, founder of the jazz label ACT, to curate a unique band that will follow in the footsteps of its founders, Alfred Lion & Francis Wolff."

For the 2019 London Jazz Festival, the line-up features: Émile Parisien - sax and leader, Theo Croker - trumpet, Glenn Ferris - trumpet, Yaron Herman - piano, Joe Martin - bass, Gerald Cleaver - drums, plus special guests: Benny Golson and Axel Zwingenberger, curated by Siggi Loch.
