Recorded in 1969, these sessions were released only 39 years later. They took place at the same time as the sessions for the Chris McGregor Septet album Up to Earth, also abandoned at the time and unearthed in 2008 by the Fledg'ling label. Our Prayer features McGregor in a rare small setting, a trio with bassist Barre Phillips and drummer Louis Moholo. The 45-minute set runs the gamut of the pianist's range, for an album that might have been heralded as a landmark, had it been released then. In retrospect, it offers a beautiful, progressive listen, and a valuable look into McGregor's musical thought, right before the formation of his Brotherhood of Breath…

These eight intriguing free improvisations feature bassist Lisle Ellis, drummer Don Robinson, and Lawrence Ochs (who is best on tenor). The musicians listen closely to each other and seem to form fully formed compositions out of thin air. Although there are some violent moments, attention is paid to exploring a variety of moods, from very lyrical stretches and unaccompanied ballads to intense interplay. Although not quite essential, this outing holds one's interest.

Style: Jazz | Label: Audio Cave

Doors Not Shut is a project that sheds new light on the concept of jazz sextet. Formation created by five outstanding and meritorious musicians in the company of Australian drummer Philip South on his debut album proposes a full breath and freshness approach to improvisation and playing in the collective. Over the course of ten compositions, the composition is subject to almost constant rotation and we do not hear the play of all the artists involved in the project. This peculiar treatment favors the continuous evolution of the sound, thanks to which February is a disc that shines with many colors, escaping clear classifications. All this makes it an ideal proposition not only for those who are familiar with the rich art of Krzysztof Szmańda or Wacław Zimpel, but also those who are just taking their first steps in improvised music. Diversified and multidimensional Doors Not Shut music will surely provide them with a considerable amount of inspiration to undertake further searches.

Après le succès des deux albums de son trio Un Poco Loco et de sa création franco-cubaine en grand orchestre autour de la rumba ¿ Que Vola ?, le tromboniste de l’ONJ présente Animal, un trio inédit qui réunit, pour la première fois autour de ses compositions, deux musiciens parmi les plus en vue sur la scène jazz actuelle : Joachim Florent à la contrebasse et Sylvain Darrifourcq à la batterie. Pour ce répertoire original, hommage vivant et joyeux au monde animal, Fidel Fourneyron travaille sur le blues dans la mélodie et les inflexions, sur la recherche et l’originalité des sons, le groove toujours, le zapping et la surprise comme source d’inspiration dans l’improvisation, et la finesse des lignes et contrepoints comme tremplin à l’euphorie du jeu collectif.

Environ Days is a document of compositions played by an aggressive improvising group of musicians led by John Fischer at his performance space in the mid-'70s called Environ, the first and most well known of the loft jazz scene's spaces during that magical era. Most directly collaborating with Fischer is Perry Robinson, clarinetist and vanguard jazz wildman…

New York City can be like a jungle. With a menagerie of people intermingling in seemingly never ceasing action, the City has ecosystems within ecosystems. Vibraphonist/composer Yuhan Su has been inspired by her chaotic new home and her experiences with the individuals she has met there. Her new recording, City Animals, captures her enthusiasm for the craziness of the City and the adventures she has had since her arrival. Originally from Taiwan, Su came to the States in 2008 to further her music studies at Berklee College of Music in Boston, where she expanded her classical percussion knowledge to the world of jazz and improvisation. In 2012, Su moved to New York…

One of the great free jazz tenor saxophonists, Frank Wright was a high-energy player with a large tone and a style that made him often sound possessed. On this previously unissued ESP set, he is joined by pianist Bobby Few (who during the latter part of the set hints at his roots in more mainstream jazz), the virtuosic bassist Alan Silva and the powerful drummer Muhammad Ali at the 1974 Moers Jazz Festival. The two selections are continuous, never run out of intensity, and feature some intense playing, particularly from Wright and Ali. Free jazz collectors will definitely want this powerful performance.

RÉVÉLATION ! Nouveauté. Jeune trompettiste espagnol né en 1991, Bruno Calvo s’est installé en 2013 à Amsterdam pour y étudier. Parmi ceux qui lui ont prodigué leçons et conseils, on trouve Avishai Cohen ou Ambrose Akinmusire. Très actif comme sideman, il se présente ici son premier opus en tant que leader. En guise d’introduction minimaliste sur un tapis rythmique obsédant, Erytheia ouvre l’appétit. Offrant le même espace au drumming de Iago Fernandez, Dolores séduit par ses contours mélodiques et un phrasé incisif et bondissant, avant un premier solo où le leader affirme une aisance souriante : parfois proche d’un Freddie Hubbard par le style et la sonorité, avec ici ou là des pointes plus échevelées à la Don Cherry.

Seed Triangular is the first collaborative album from adventurous multi-instrumentalist Robbie Lee and virtuosic guitarist Mary Halvorson. The album features Halvorson and Lee not only improvising together on a rarely-heard combination of instruments for the very first time, but also documents Halvorson touching these instruments for the very first time. She explores the extended high and low strings of an 18-string Knutsen harp guitar (circa 1899), the vintage quirks of a 1930 Gibson L-2 guitar, and the gut strings of an 1888 SS Stewart 6-string banjo as Lee performs on equally unusual woodwinds, such as baroque flute and the world's smallest saxophone.
