Portamento

Label curator Dirk Serries hosted a radioshow called ‘Blah-Blah Café’ on Radio Centraal in Antwerpen (Belgium) about 34 years ago. Followed by a second show ‘Membraan’ on that same radiostation. After an abscence on the radiowaves for more than two decades, he joined the exquisite Concertzender Nederland in late 2018 with a new show called PORTAMENTO, focusing on the free improvised, minimal, musique-concrete and all in-between, below and above. A monthly one-hour show, bridging his fascination for new, essential and undiscovered music with New Wave Of Jazz’s own artistic output.  Visit the radioshow’ on the concertzender itself here. Or stream any of the shows here below.
