On the 39. Deutsches Jazzfestival Frankfurt 2008 (30.10. – 1.11.) they have an evening dedicated to Robert Wyatt ("The Wyatt Variations"). The festival programme so far:

30. October

* Mingus, Monk & Me“
– hr-Bigband feat. Bill Frisell, conducted by Michael Gibbs

31. October
The Wyatt Variations – An evening curated by Robert Wyatt
* Max Nagl “Market Rasen“
* Dondestan! – The Wyatt Project feat. Karen & Michael Mantler
* Annie Whitehead's "Soupsongs" feat. Gilad Atzmon

01. November
* Gilad Atzmon & The Orient House Ensemble
* “Citizen Caine“
– hr-Bigband feat. Uri Caine, conducted by Örjan Fahlström
* The Exploding Star Orchestra feat. Bill Dixon

Since John Surman is playing on the same festival, the night before the Wyatt evening, let me just repeat my old wish (or dream), a Robert Wyatt - John Surman duo album.
