EAC Rip | FLAC (tracks+.cue+log) - 222 MB | MP3 CBR 320 kbps (LAME 3.93) - 102 MB | Covers included
Genre: Avant-garde Jazz, Free Jazz | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Sackville (SKCD2-3020)

The adventurous playing and writing on this reissue hint at both avant-garde jazz and 20th century classical music. Pianist/composer Anthony Davis (who wrote all of the music for the set) is joined by violinist Leroy Jenkins, cellist Abdul Wadud, and drummer Pheeroan akLaff on the three-part "Suite for Another World" and "Estraven," while taking "Of Blues and Dreams" as a solo piano feature. The music is episodic and somewhat cinematic, with some intriguing interplay among the musicians.

After thirteen years from their last album “Brevi Momenti di Presenza”, Italian cult band Anatrofobia comes back with a new release, the seventh one in their 30-year long career. With some news this time. Starting from the line-up that alongside founders Luca Cartolari and Andrea Biondello, includes Cristina Trotto Gatta (already in Masche) who with her voice magically manages to enrich the sound of a traditionally instrumental band, and the punk soul and instruments of Paolo “Makhno” Cantù.

Genre: Avant-garde Jazz, Free Jazz | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Koch Jazz (KOC-CD-8501)

The Art Ensemble of Chicago's first (and arguably most significant) period concluded with this high-quality studio session, Fanfare for the Warriors. The quintet (trumpeter Lester Bowie, Roscoe Mitchell and Joseph Jarman on reeds, bassist Malachi Favors and drummer Don Moye) provides concise but adventurous performances. High points include Mitchell's "Nonnaah," Bowie's humorous "Barnyard Scuffel Shuffle" and "Tnoona," but all of the selections have their own musical personality. It's a fine showcase for this important avant-garde unit.

This laconic yet lasting statement from Terje Rypdal marked the Norwegian guitarist’s third ECM appearance as composer and leader. Its crucible continues to yield an enticing tincture of prog-rock and classical stylings for the weary musical mind. The reverberant French horn that animates “Silver Bird Is Heading For The Sun” betrays nothing of its cooption by a punchy g/d/b constituent. Floating on a well-aged mellotron, it bows out gracefully as Rypdal rolls in like a fuzzed haze.

Nuovo lavoro per il flautista di Pordenone (incisione del 2012), in trio con due fedelissimi quali Cesselli e Turchet, e nuovo centro. Persino prevedibile, verrebbe da dire (ovviamente nel senso migliore del termine), perché da Massimo De Mattia, ormai da molti anni figura nodale sulla mappa del jazz nostrano (magari non tutti se ne sono accorti, ma pazienza…), non ci aspettiamo mai di meno. Il disco, breve (39'), si sviluppa attraverso sedici brani di ammirevole concisione (a parte il primo "Trilemma," nessuno raggiunge i quattro minuti, e sette rimangono addirittura sotto i due) in cui i tre musicisti scovano abbinamenti strumentali variegati, senza che nulla venga mai dato per scontato (il che è ovviamente pregio non da poco). Dopo il citato "Trilemma" d'avvio, episodio scuro, quasi spettrale, una sorta di memento, a firma di Cesselli, si alternano guizzi e segmenti in cui tutto sembra invece stemperarsi.

Jay Campbell (JACK Quartet) and Michael Nicolas (Brooklyn Rider) are two of the greatest cellists in new music. Long-time members of Zorn's inner circle, here they perform four compositions written expressly for them. Featuring two works for solo cello and two works for cello and rhythm section, the music is filled with spectacular leaps, intense textures, dizzying tremolos, hypnotic ostinatos, scordatura and more! As always, Zorn pushes the envelope of what is technically possible on the instrument and Mike and Jay come to the plate full force, exhibiting a new level of virtuosity in these breathtaking and dramatic works. With Ches Smith on drums and Jorge Roeder on bass this is a cello recital unlike any other!

Contemporary Jazz, Avant-Garde Jazz | Label: ECM Records

A fascinating solo album from the Swiss pianist, composer and conceptualist best known as leader of the bands Ronin and Mobile, Entendre offers deeper insight into Nik Bärtch's musical thinking.As the album title implies Entendre is about hearing as a creative process, referencing the patient unfolding of Bärtch's modular polymetric pieces, with alertness to the dynamics of touch, finding freedom in aesthetic restriction, serving the flow of each piece's development while also taking the music to new places. Recorded at Auditorio Stelio Molo RSI, Lugano, in September 2020, and produced by Manfred Eicher.

Avant-Garde Jazz, Hard Bop | Label: Rhino Entertainment

Originally recorded in January 19, 1974, Mingus At Carnegie Hall was released as a 1LP that only featured 2 long tracks ("C Jam Blues" and "Perdido") from the concert; one track per LP side, and features Jon Faddis, Charles McPherson, John Handy, George Adams, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Hamiet Bluiett, Don Pullen, and Dannie Richmond. Yet the original concert in January of '74 included 2 hours of performances, but nearly 70+ minutes were left on the cutting room floor. With jazz music on the decline in the US in the 1970s, Atlantic Records was probably concerned about releasing a 3LP set at a higher price point that only the most ardent fans would purchase at the time.

Trumpet is a unique three-CD boxed set of solo trumpet music recorded over one week in the beautiful natural acoustics of St. Mary's Church, the medieval stone church in the Town of Pohja on the Southern Coast of Finland. All compositions by Wadada Leo Smith. Trumpet represents a culmination of Smith's recorded solo trumpet work that has comprised of six albums before Trumpet, starting with his very first album as a leader, Creative Music - 1: Six Solo Improvisations, in 1971 and ending with his dedication to Thelonious Monk, Solo: Reflections and Meditations on Monk, in 2015.

Peak Inn joins Brooklyn-based drummer Vinnie Sperrazza with regular sparring partners, pianist Jacob Sacks (they work together in altoist Matt Blostein's group) and bassist Dave Ambrosio, on four standards, Sperrazza's tune "Hyde" and six collective improvisations. The set teeters between dissonant, impulsive freedom and a fresh, lyrical take on the "book"—albeit with the former directly informing the latter.

Finnish trumpeter/composer Verneri Pohjola comes from a well-established family of jazz musicians: both his father, famed bassist Pekka Pohjola, and his younger brother, trombonist Ilmari, join him here. Pohjola was voted Musician Of The Year by Finnish jazz critics in 2004, but Aurora is his debut as leader. This is a work of immense beauty which benefits not only from Pahjola's expressive trumpet playing and writing, but also from exceptional musicianship from every single one of its 15 players.

To describe saxophonist Greg Ward's Touch My Beloved's Thought as his magnum opus is to impede his development as a composer. Let's just say for many a jazz artist, if this recording were included in their discography, it would be their signature piece. For Ward, it just represents the possibilities.

La DANZA# и una struttura complessa di spazio-tempo per l'improvvisazione. Tale struttura si compone di tre elementi base: lo spazio definito (scrittura in notazione), lo spazio aperto (improvvisazione statica) e la danza (improvvisazione dinamica). Nell'esecuzione delle composizioni questi elementi si costruiscono attraverso il suono e possono comparire in tutte le combinazioni a seconda delle indicazioni della partitura.

This second release from the Claudia Quintet (and their first on the Cuneiform label) not only offers Claudia's great blend of instrumental textures from tenor sax/clarinet, vibraphone, accordion, acoustic bass, drums, and percussion, but also provides a satisfying stroll among multiple musical genres. Drummer John Hollenbeck is the group's composer, and his clever pieces move effortlessly from funky chamber jazz to minimalism (both rhythmic and ambient), with some African elements and "new music" vocabulary thrown in for good measure. A good example of Hollenbeck's eclecticism (one of many) would be the piece "…Can You Get Through This Life With a Good Heart?," which was inspired by a quote from Joni Mitchell in a PBS documentary. It opens, in Hollenbeck's words, with "the harmonic clouds and space of Morton Feldman," which eventually give way to a pensive folk melody stated by accordion and vibes.
