The chiming notes of a very Mahavishnu Orchestra sounding guitar open the tension-rich "Fire Mountain" hotly pursued by Theo Travis' intense tenor sax soloing and coruscating axe work from Mike Outram. A change of pace is heard in the title track, beginning slowly but gradually building-up in pace and volume, Outram's fuzzy guitar twinned with Travis' sax comprise the melodic driving force, all underpinned by organ from Pete Whittaker and crackling drums from seasoned percussionist Nic France. The pressure continues to build courtesy of a keen ensemble riff reaching a climax until it dies back into the opening reflective sax-led balledic theme.

Expert en polyrythmie virtuose, Nasheet Waits est un improvisateur brillant mais aussi un leader assez charismatique comme le prouve ce véritable premier album de son groupe Equality. A 45 ans, ce batteur influent du jazz contemporain s’inscrit dans l’évolution d’un jeu sans faille, subtil, fougueux, loin des codes d’accompagnement traditionnels. Son usage atypique et complexe de la polyrythmie ouvre la voie à une expression plus libre et authentique qui brille de mille feux tout au long de Between Nothingness And Infinity.

This collection on the U.K.'s Soul Brother imprint is a very compelling look at a big slice of Freddie Hubbard's long career as a leader, and one that gets ignored for the most part. Hubbard recorded over 20 records between Backlash, his Atlantic debut in 1966, and Ride Like the Wind for Elektra in 1982, with lengthy stops at Columbia and CTI (as well some straight hard bop and post-bop outings for labels Fantasy and Pablo). In many cases, some of these original recordings were not only disregarded by more traditional jazzheads, they were regarded with outright hostility. It didn't matter to Hubbard, however, because at the time, these were among his best-selling albums and connected with the public deeply.

Eric Marienthal has always had limitless potential. Primarily known as an altoist but also an excellent player on tenor and soprano, Marienthal came to fame with Chick Corea's Elektric Band and tends to sound at his best when teamed with players of that caliber. Many of his own projects suffer from overproduction, a lack of spontaneity and commercial material, but that is not true of Crossroads. In groups ranging from quartets to sextets, Marienthal is challenged by the material (all group originals), matching wits with the likes of keyboardist Russell Ferrante (from the Yellowjackets), bassist John Patitucci and, on three selections, Chick Corea. Crossroads contains some of Eric Marienthal's finest playing outside of the context of the Elektric Band.

In Memoriam. Larry Coryell, a guitarist who played rock 'n' roll as a teen but wound up pioneering jazz-rock fusion starting in the mid-1960s and then psychedelic fusion in the early '70s, died on Feb. 19. He was 73. RIP Mr. Coryell. In the 1970s, Germany's Radio Bremen simulcast a series of modern jazz concerts from all across the spectrum, and wisely archived them. Record producer Consul Bodo Jacoby was looking for a new project after losing the rights to reissue the MPS catalog and recalled them. His Promising Music label is issuing a number of these vintage performances in what he calls the Livelove series, of which January 1975 is the first volume.

Over the last few years Aki has quietly been building a name in the international jazz world both as a leader and as a sideman. With Amorandom, he delivers his most authoritative work to date. There’s a fluidity in his playing and a boldness in his composing that deserves widespread praise and real recognition for one of the finest young European pianists. Described by Downbeat as a ‘rising star around Europe, Amorandom is the work that will introduce Aki Rissanen’s startling new talent to a global audience.

Gravat als Ground Studios sota la direcció del guitarrista Jordi Matas, el segon disc dels Threejay ha arribat amb aires d’òpera prima. El fet que el nouvingut sigui tractat pels seus progenitors com si fos el primer, explica l’alt nivell de compromís i l’energia que ha necessitat el projecte. Threejay els va reunir, i aquest Our Voint of Piew els situa en un escenari complex, que parla de jazz des de la música simfònica, i es deixa portar tant pel ritme agressiu del heavy metal com per les tonades del pop. He de dir però, que la primera escolta em va traslladar al territori de les bandes sonores. I és que la música que han escrit aquests tres artesans-aventurers construeix un relat amb vocació de novel·la fantàstica, una fantasia que va força més enllà del simbòlic intercanvi d’inicials que exterioritza el títol.

Chicago-born saxophonist Steve Coleman has been a controversial figure since the emergence of the multi-idiomatic, free-funk M-Base movement he inspired in America in the late 1980s. Coleman's music through the past decade has seemed to suggest the steady maturing of a new Sun Ra, Anthony Braxton or George Russell for contemporary jazz - yet his struggle with form has also sidelined his reputation into an enthusiasts' tributary.

Miroslav Vitous is best known as one of the foremost young bassists in the jazz-rock movement of the late 60's and early 70's. He was a founding member of Weather Report and made numerous solo albums. This album, Magical Shepherd, is making its worldwide CD debut. It features such jazz luminaries as Herbie Hancock, Jack DeJohnette & Airto Moreira. It was originally issued on LP in 1976 on Warner Brothers.

As he was developing his formidable career in the early era of smooth jazz, the saxman proved an invaluable sideman of Chick Corea's Elektric Band, David Benoit's touring ensemble and a studio player for projects by such artists as Keiko Matsui and Mike Garson. Yet as a solo artist, he spent his first three albums searching for an identity that ranged from pop (Round Trip) to electronic mainstream jazz (Crossroads). With Oasis, his search came to a diverse, exciting, and highly enjoyable end. Marienthal applies his stellar blowing techniquest to styles ranging from folk to gospel, but the overall attitude he conveys is sweet and soulful R&B, as in the hoppin' grooves of the funky opening tracks "Hustlin'" and "Seafood to Go."

Primo disco live del quartetto del sassofonista Tino Tracanna, formazione ormai attiva da molti anni e dedita a un jazz apparentemente tradizionale, ma non privo di aperture sperimentali. Ne и subito esempio “Born in the Zoo”, che Tracanna aveva registrato in precedenti occasioni, ad esempio nel 1999 in duo con Paolino Dalla Porta nell'album Nudes. Il brano, condotto dal leader al soprano, ha una struttura anomala e si basa su riff ripetuti. Forse piщ tradizionali "Imaharat" e "Monkeys" (che era giа presente nell'album del 1994 Ensalada mistica, del quintetto di Paolo Fresu, nel quale Tracanna и da sempre membro stabile), mentre "Casta Rumba" и una godibilissima ballad, nella quale Massimo Colombo e Tracanna hanno spazi per assoli di grande espressivitа, che trasmettono l'atmosfera del concerto.

Genre: Jazz, Fusion | Label: GRP Records | Catalog: GRD-9571

With the exception of 1992's Born Again, saxophonist Tom Scott's output for GRP was consistently disappointing. Although obviously a talented player, Scott's willingness to play arrangements whose main goal was to gain radio airplay resulted in commercial and quickly dated music. Scott is heard with smaller groups throughout this 1988 effort, which include keyboardist Randy Kerber and guitarist Dean Parks, plus guest appearances by guitarists Eric Gale and Michael Landau; all this looks promising but is actually quite routine. None of the nine funky originals were infectious enough to catch on; Scott sounds fairly anonymous in spots, particularly when he utilizes a WX-7; and it is obvious that the music was made strictly for the money. At best, this is superior background music
