The ever morphing Flying Luttenbachers return with a monolithic 7 track 70 minute work entitled "Imminent Death". Joining the core group of Weasel Walter, Tim Dahl (Child Abuse, Lydia Lunch), Matt Nelson (GRID, Battletrance) and Brandon Seabrook is legendary guitar player Henry Kaiser, plus a special guest contribution by Brad Laner (Medicine). "Imminent Death" has a very distinctive focus on pounding, relentless rhythm and hypnotic repetition, torn asunder by maniacal soloing and slashing textures. Matt Nelson steps up to bat on this release, shredding his ass off on multiple reeds. Some of Henry Kaiser's most maniacal guitar overload in recent memory scars this acrid sonic landscape as well. The Flying Luttenbachers are no Pop Group, but the Material here is completely Contorted and it's Miles beyond anything you will hear in 2020! Definitely "Rated X" for "excessive"!

Parker, Guy, and Lytton are no strangers to one another. According to a quick and dirty count, this is their 17th release as a trio since 1983. And even with nearly four decades of collaboration, they still have new statements to make as a group. Recorded in October 2017 at the Vilnius Jazz Festival, the aptly titled Concert in Vilnius is about 55 minutes in length and spans four tracks. Parker plays the tenor and soprano sax, Guy the double bass, and Lytton drums and percussion. (But that instrumentation probably goes without saying, right?)

Many musicians consider Jean-François Jenny-Clark to be one of the greatest bass players of his generation, and I now realise that over the years and in many different projects and contexts, I was fortunate enough to share my rhythmic role with one of the greatest contemporary improvisers. Jean-François knew his instrument so well that he was able to assert his strong personality so quickly that it wasn’t always easy to adapt to his idea of tempo – it could be fragmented, loosely defined, deliberately variable or merely hinted at. His premature death makes one suspect that he never fully realised the importance of his personal contribution to music, nor the admiration we all felt for him. (Daniel Humair)

The first thing that attracts the eye is this cover – the Jimi Hendrix posture. Noah Howard, one of the great underestimated figures in free jazz, in concentrated rapture. It’s an iconic picture of him which was also used for his 1979 recording “Ole”, on which he presents a fabulous version of the Coltrane composition. All of Howard’s commitment, his ability to listen, his grandeur is expressed in this picture.

Resonance Records goes out of its way again to unearth yet another significant chapter in jazz history, and once again, it's one that relatively few fans have ever heard. This performance of Jaco Pastorius' Word of Mouth Big Band was captured during George Wein's Kool Jazz Festival at Avery Fisher Hall. It was broadcast on NPR's Jazz Alive program, but this double disc contains the entire performance, with more than 40 minutes of additional music.

All these artists that have seemingly well-established cult fanbases… How do people discover them? Where do they hide out? It would seem that sextet The Bureau Of Atomic Tourism are ‘a considerable force in avant-garde jazz’, and while I’m not exactly 100% on the pulse when it comes to the genre, I do have numerous inroads into the musical milieu. But in a well-populated but spacious and divergent field, it’s perhaps not entirely shocking that The Bureau Of Atomic Tourism have slipped under my radar, especially considering the fact that their last long-player, Hapax Legomena, was four years ago.

Blurring the edges between philosophy and mysticism, modern art and radical political critique, the Afrofuturist impulse has been a cultural force since the mid-20th century. That’s when jazz visionary Sun Ra and his Arkestra first touched down on Planet Earth and told humanity that space (outer and inner) is indeed the place. It’s an impulse that in the new millennium has only grown more diverse thanks to a proliferating number of African-American musicians who use Afrofuturism as a platform to launch their own, unique visions. Among these explorers are cosmic jazz saxophonist Kamasi Washington, post-everything beat maker Flying Lotus, R&B cyborg Janelle Monáe and dystopian noise-rappers Death Grips.

Avant-Garde Jazz, Psychedelic, Fusion | Label: Rune Grammofon

Fire! is a Swedish trio comprising Mats Gustafsson (The Thing), Johan Berthling (Tape) and Andreas Werliin (Wildbirds & Peacedrums) that came together with the idea of a fresh approach to improvised music, with a number of influences from free jazz, psychedelic rock and noise. Fire! is also their vehicle for rekindling their instrumental skills and playing outside their comfort zones, or collaborating with prestigious guests such as Jim O´Rourke (Unreleased?, 2011) and Oren Ambarchi (In The Mouth A Hand, 2012). A parallel but no less powerful project is their gargantuan Fire! Orchestra, previously a 30 piece behemoth (now scaled down to a mere 18 piece) of a band that convened for the first time in January 2012 for a memorable concert. She Sleeps, She Sleeps is the trio´s fifth album and displays an intriguing cocktail of dark and brooding, hypnotic slowcore jazz.

Recorded April 2018 at Willimantic Records in Willimantic, Connecticut. This is the American debut release from Lao Dan, China’s emerging free player on bamboo flute, suona and alto saxophone. Dan’s voice is starkly unique, even among the blurred lines of international Improv/Jazz. He’s steeped in native traditions yet eagerly obliterates those boundaries with ecstatic intensity and haunting melodies. His dense reedy, drones and jagged melodic shrieks are described as a “Whitmanian yawp,” by Marc Medwin in the liner notes.

John Surman (on baritone, soprano, bass clarinet and synthesizer) meets up with drummer Jack DeJohnette (who also plays congas and electric piano) for this typically introspective and spacy ECM set. Surman's playing (especially on baritone and bass clarinet) during nine group originals is worth hearing.

Surman is a musician of gentle persuasion and even gentler philosophy. One can always count on an immersive experience, Such Winters of Memory being but one carefully brushed example. And while one may be hard-pressed to see into the autobiographical details of these titles, at least in their articulation one gets an immediate sense of the environments they so meticulously render into graspable sound.

Label: ASTIGMATIC RECORDS

A musical visionary, some outstanding instrumentalists, the 10th anniversary of the collective's founding, a reflection on Polishness, and finally - a 4,000 km-long walking pilgrimage of 100 solo concerts in 100 temples. These events, symbols, experiences and facts have somehow been combined into one coherent whole - the 'Polska' LP, the first release by Piotr Damasiewicz & Power of the Horns Ensemble since 2013.
Led by trumpeter Piotr Damasiewicz, the recording also features saxophonist Maciej Obara and pianist Dominik Wania, who have released two albums on ECM as members of Maciej Obara Quartet.
