John Cage's austere Four Walls was composed in 1944 for Merce Cunningham's dance play of the previous year, and marks the beginning of a long and productive collaboration between the two artists. Except for the dance's structure, which was carefully planned in advance, Cage's music operated fairly independently of Cunningham's choreography, and its strictly timed sections alternated between fragmentary, song-like passages in modal harmony and aggressive bursts of expanding and contracting patterns, often in bare octaves.

Avant-garde, experimental and misogynist in the bargain, this oddball film is about 17 men named Frank who make their way through Helsinki in a commandeered subway car. Their goal is to reach the symbolically peaceful, perfect coastal town of Eira. Along the way they perform some pop music, one of them is shot, they split up, and finally two manage to reach the sea. Once there, they discover that the water is filled with dead fish, and a decrepit rowboat somehow becomes an object of contention.

So long, Eric! For this tribute to Eric Dolphy, Alexander von Schlippenbach and Aki Takase have put together an ensemble with some of the best interpreters of Dolphys music. In addition to pianists Aki Takase and Alexander von Schlippenbach, Han Bennink and Karl Berger, two of Dolphys former collaborators, can be heard on drums and vibraphone. The band is completed by one of the most exciting front lines on the European jazz scene: Rudi Mahall, Nils Wogram, Axel Dörner, Henrik Walsdorff and Tobias Delius. Bold arrangements and visionary playing bring out the exploding expressivity of Dolphys compositions and prove that even 50 years after Dolphys death they sound fresh and relevant.

The poignant, deadpan films of Aki Kaurismäki are pitched somewhere in the wintry nether lands between comedy and tragedy. And rarely in his body of work has the line separating those genres seemed thinner than in what is often identified as his “Proletariat Trilogy,” Shadows in Paradise, Ariel, and The Match Factory Girl.

Aki Takase's phenomenal technique and her talent for improvisation is well known, as is her love for the jazz classics. She has already paid tribute to Fats Waller and recorded with saxophonist Silke Eberhard an "Ornette Coleman Anthology". Now she takes a close look at the arguably most influential jazz pianist of the jazz tradition: Duke Ellington.
