Which brings us to Norwegian Grammy-winning pianist and composer Wesseltoft's latest for his own Jazzland label. Halfway between the lounge lizard irony of Dimitri from Paris and the lyrical quartet settings of Dave Brubeck or the acoustic Herbie Hancock, Sharing is one of those mould-breaking sets that tend to outlast the vagaries of musical fashion.

Elis Regina was one of the most ferociously talented singers to emerge from Brazil. A perfectionist who was frequently dissatisfied, Regina drove herself and members of her band relentlessly, leading to her being dubbed "Hurricane" and "Little Pepper" by musicians and journalists. Her tempestuous nature aside, she commanded the respect of Brazil's leading songwriters, who lined up for the chance to have her record one of their songs, and for much of her short life was the country's most popular female vocalist.

UK producer Aaron Dolton (aka HUW) is a disruptor. He looks at things not for what they are, but for what they can become. On Wood/Water, the source materials are the solo piano works of New York jazz musician Richard X Bennett. The piano is sampled, transformed and reimagined through modular synthesis into new sounds that beguile and intrigue, as they explore unknown terrain. All underpinned by the aesthetics of downtempo electronica.

This is an excellent collection of jazz and fusion numbers featuring the wholesome, peerless vocals of Maysa Leak and group newcomer Mark Anthoni. With gritty, urban rhythms and painstaking arrangements, Leak's radiant vocals ring with invitation. The lyrical content is upright and substantive. All the songs have an aggressive backbeat regardless of their tempo, providing an unobstructed platform for these artistic musicians to express their chic brand of music. Group leader Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick's vision of intertwine various genres of music (bebop, soul, classical, dance, etc.) into one incomparable sound is exemplary.

Genre: Trip-Hop, Acid Jazz, Downtempo | Label: Toshiba EMI | Catalog: TOCP-66364

Télépopmusik's sophomore effort is filled with beautiful backing tracks. Pillows of soft synth slowly emerge while pianos, harps, brass instruments, electronic ticks, and glitches stroll in and out of the picture as they please. This subdued electronica landscape is something to get lost in, and while it's nothing you haven't heard before, it's exactly what headphones crave on rainy days and almost enough to excuse the hackneyed lyrics and overindulgence.

Vincent Pongracz und seine Band experimentieren fern jeder Einschränkung nach Lust und Laune, sie fügen die Elemente und Versatzstücke unterschiedlichster Richtungen in einem neuen Kontext zusammen und basteln sich auf diesem Wege einen Sound, der sein ganz eigenes vielschichtiges und enorm abwechslungsreiches Eigenleben entwickelt. In den Stücken trifft die Vertracktheit des Jazz auf die Kraft des Hip-Hop, hinzu gesellt sich die Eleganz der zeitgenössischen Klassik.

EAC | APE (image+.cue, log) | Covers Included | 31:03 | 204 MB
Genre: Acid Jazz | Label: Blue Note | Catalog: 493916 2

Truffaz's quartet has been awhile, evolving considerably. It's morphed from an all-acoustic mainstream group in 1997 to a more aggressively rock-informed unit in recent years, influenced by but way less dense and angular than Miles's late-60'/early-70's electric works. These days Patrick Muller is often found feeding his Rhodes through a distortion box, with more powerful rhythms coming from bassist Marcello Giuliani and drummer Marc Erbetta. This early work keeps Erik Truffaz new approach into today's modern jazz.

Genre: Acid Jazz, Downtempo | Label: Downsall Plastics | Catalog: 7 24381 10982 3

Right down to the hip, pleasant cover model, Buscemi's second album of groovy productions is a near-perfect match for his debut, 1998's Mocha Supremo. Producer Dirk Swartenbroekx flaunts his love of breezy, continental rhythms and late-night atmosphere. Though the scattered Latin-dance fusions bossa nova meets disco, salsa meets drum'n'bass, samba meets downtempo house aren't exactly pioneering ideas, Swartenbroekx is an able hand who knows when and how to freshen what could be a stale production.

Latin Jazz | Label: Concord Jazz

Pianist Eliane Elias follows her Latin Grammy win for 2017's magnificent Dance of Time with this set of tunes from the iconic musical Man of La Mancha. During the mid-'90s, Elias was approached by Mitch Leigh, the Tony-winning composer of her musical; he'd followed her career and greatly admired her work. Accompanied by Neil Warner, arranger for the original musical, he commissioned the pianist to rearrange songs from the show. Elias was given complete freedom to choose which songs she wished to record. She hired two rhythm sections: One featured drummer Jack DeJohnette and bassist Eddie Gomez; the other bassist Marc Johnson, drummer Satoshi Takeishi, and master percussionist Manolo Badrena (who plays with both groups). Elias and her sidemen recorded nine songs live in studio. Unfortunately, the completed album was shelved due to contractual issues and seemed doomed to obscurity. Leigh passed in 2014 and never saw its release. Concord rescued the album and added it to their catalog some 23 years after recording.

EAC | APE (image+.cue, log) | Covers Included | 39:39 | 263 MB
Genre: Acid Jazz, Downtempo | Label: Studio !K7 | Catalog: 237052-2

Koop, the duo of Oscar Simonsson and Magnus Zingmark, seem to grasp what many other trip-hop production units never did – that, no matter which instruments are used in your productions, digital or acoustic or electric, a sense of place is what should never be lost. Their debut album Waltz for Koop, with its languruous textures and tugging sense of melancholy, one-upped a parade of other deservedly recognized acts who had come in the wake of Air (groups like Royksopp, Zero 7, and Groove Armada).

Guitarist Nicola Conte's sixth recording as a leader is a vocal tour de force, as five different singers split up duties on select tracks. With a substantial horn section pulled from the jazz ranks, Conte takes on the role of producer more than instrumentalist, while exploring various strains of Latin jazz backings for his words and music that are mostly from his personal book of tunes.

An odd reissue of sorts, Bending New Corners combines tracks off two of trumpeter Erik Truffaz's previous albums. It is unclear why Blue Note felt the need to repackage these tracks yet again; however, here they are and they are worth a listen. Containing tracks from the sessions that produced The Mask and its European version, The Dream, Bending New Corners is a groove-oriented work that draws heavily on late-'60s and early-'70s Miles Davis.
