It takes more than enthusiasm to spend hours every evening spending hours evaluating old piano rolls. Self-playing mechanical pianos became fashionable at the beginning of the 20th century. A pianist - often the composer - once had to play his piece. The music was punched on mechanical rollers (similar to punch cards) and could then be played over and over again. Thousands of these old reels existed until the record pushed them more and more.

Through the course of over 50 years Karsten Vogel has had an immense impact on the Danish music scene. His personal and recognizable Saxophone style has been at the front of more than 70 jazz- and jazz-related releases. In the last couple of years Vogel has released two albums, one with focus on Vogel’s great inspiration Charlie Parker, and one in cooperation with Per Aage Brandt, exploring their avantgarde roots. Now, Karsten Vogel is ready to release a new album with focus on his compositions and especially on his Saxophone playing. The album, entitled This Is It, should be seen as the completion of Vogels journey within music, as it is the final expression of what his great storytelling can amount to. Consequently, the are no plans for future recording sessions.

Jazz | Label: Porter House Press

Trumpeter and composer Charlie Porter exhibits his innovative spirit and his brilliant musicianship on his self-titled debut as a leader. Working with a rotating cast of Portland (Oregon) area musicians, Porter performs ten of his originals and one cover with a refreshingly unique style and captivating spontaneity. Similar in concept to tenor saxophonist Benny Golson's Take a Number from 1 to 10 (Argo, 1961), Porter's release starts off with the unaccompanied trumpet piece "Prologue" that quotes motifs from the other tunes on the recording. Porter then adds an instrument per track until the intricately constructed and dramatic "Brown Study," that features a sextet. Here the similarity with Golson ends as Porter goes back down to smaller and smaller ensembles until his solo, the baroque tinged, "Epilogue."

'The Uncarved Block' is Baxter's most searingly personal work to date, performed entirely solo and with gorgeous illustration on guitar and piano. It's a beautiful and elegant return to his very core as a songwriter and a human being. "I feel like I've been though a very slow metamorphosis over the years," he says. "Even I'm not sure into what, but I can say I'm calmer inside, and I thought it was time for a full-on new release." While other artists rush so readily to provide the personal information that feeds the beast of self-promotion, Tom has kept his counsel, determined to be defined only by his music, and at his own pace. But it has been a tumultuous ten years. He married the longtime girlfriend for whom he wrote the Ivor Novello Award-nominated 'Better,' but then endured a divorce and, more recently, was happily remarried. Along the way, he lived in Devon, travelled to India, Los Angeles, Spain and then to Brazil, the place that inspired him to find the impetus to write again.

Miles to Go is Colin James’ ambitious sequel to his critically-acclaimed 2016 CD, Blue Highways, and it continues James’ story with a collection of carefully curated songs handpicked from some of the greatest blues artists. In the months leading up to the recording, as James was reflecting on songs for the album he decided to reacquaint himself with a beautiful red Gibson ES-335. It was just like the guitar he played as a teenager, but regretfully had to sell for rent money. While James reconnected with this guitar, Miles to Go seemed to just flow onto the studio floor.

The consummate performer and man for all seasons, Philadelphia’s Frank Bey boldly declares he is “back in business now” in the opening voice over on the title track of his fourth album. Recorded and produced in Nashville by two-time Grammy winner Tom Hambridge, the title track is both autobiographical and symbolic of Bey’s inspired return to the singing career he began as a child in his hometown of Millen, Georgia and will be a fine accompaniment to the new documentary film “When You Ask Me How I Feel: The Life And Music Of Frank Bey.”

This old proverb 'strike while the iron is hot' quickly comes to mind when reviewing the new album “Prime Blues” from pacific Northwest guitar man, Jim Allchin. For it clearly alludes to the imagery of the blacksmith at his forge; if he delays shaping the iron when it is hot and pliable the metal soon cools and hardens, and the opportunity is lost. Allchin astutely heeded this council while hard on the heels of his critically-acclaimed and chart-topping 2017 album “Decisions” and continued running with its winning formula.

Clara Vuust is a Danish jazz singer from Copenhagen, a capital of jazz in Northern Europe and once home to great musicians such as Ben Webster and Dexter Gordon… In September 2018 she is releasing her third studio album "Before You Walk Away" - recorded in both Copenhagen and Catania - from the very north to the very south of Europe. The sound combines a Nordic, lyrical vocal tradition with the Mediterranean warmth in the arrangements by Italian composer and arranger Francesco Calì - and as such it makes sense to have created the album in the two places that also come together in the music.

On 2015’s Aesthesis Australia’s Dead Letter Circus showed signs of mellowing into their stride, subtly putting aside the robust and pain-stricken crescendos that first caught our attention with the expansive This Is The Warning. Aesthesis pointed them in the direction of radio-friendly territory where there’s little place for pronounced heaviness. With their eponymous album, thank goodness, they haven’t done away with the riffs altogether and those twinkling guitar tones, not to mention Kim Benzie’s consistently dreamy vocals, the standout drumming of Luke Williams and production by Forrester Savell (Karnivool, Skyharbor), have afforded Dead Letter Circus a recognisable sound.
