Matthew Garrison/Paco Sery, London
It might not be the catchiest title ever, but the Findamorale festival is due to run every June from now on at Shoreditch's fast-expanding Charlie Wright's. This first outing is devoted to the late Joe Zawinul, a legend of contemporary jazz through his co-leading of Weather Report, through his compositions, his revolutionary use of electronics, and through his Syndicate group - a world-jazz Weather Report for the 21st century. Zawinul's loss last autumn left a gaping hole in contemporary music but these gigs find some of his closest later associates celebrating his memory. On Saturday, bass guitarist Matthew Garrison appears with a trio featuring pianist Scott Kinsey and Cuban percussionist Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez. Sunday's show is led by Zawinul's favourite drummer, Paco Sery, who delivers a mix of groove, Afrobeat, funk and jazz in a group including bassist Alioune Wade and percussionist Jeorge Bezzeras.
