A key example of why the Japanese scene was so great at the start of the 70s – really mindblowing work from keyboardist Masabumi Kikuchi, and every bit as wonderful as some of our favorite American sides from the time! Kikuchi acoustic piano with a warmly soulful sensitivity – alongside the Fender Rhodes of Masahiro Kikuchi, who has a hard-edged sound that almost takes off from Joe Zawinul's use of the instrument, then soars into even mightier territory. The style is somewhat loose at times, but never too free – and the group here is a sextet that also includes amazing alto from Kosuke Mine – an excellent player who's never gotten his due on this side of the Pacific. Titles include "Love Token", "Tenacious Prayer Forever", "Roaming In Darkness", "Young Bloods", and "Piece To Peace".

Around this time in their heyday, the Crusaders were experimenting with orchestral/jazz fusions in concert – and MCA thought enough of them to capture the music in London's Royal Festival Hall one fine summer. Crusader pianist/sparkplug Joe Sample evidently arranged and orchestrated all of the Royal Philharmonic's parts himself, not necessarily with the expertise of a full-time practitioner of the craft. Too often, the orchestrations are piled on with a shovel; the orchestral "Overture" is a particularly mawkish piece of work.

Julian Lage fortunately has met the wizard Zorn and this has discovered the wildest side of Lage. The explosive combination of Lage and Matt Hollenerg to the guitars with a session, really surprising of combinations with Trevor Dum on bass and Kenny Krohoswski on percussion, under the incredible musical sense of Zorn, produces this album where it fits everything, pok, rock , atonal jazz and whatever you can think of, sometimes in the same song. Accustomed to a technically perfect and exquisite Julian Lage, see the collaborations with Nels Cline, this one that goes out of its way with an unimaginable elegance and strength. It is another Lage and a wonderful CD where it is shown once again that good musicians have no limits. Excellent.

Zonjic sounds like he could develop into a talented flutist with time.

In the summer of 1999, Steps Ahead founder/vibraphonist Mike Mainieri joined Eliane Elias, Bob Berg, Marc Johnson and Peter Erskine for a reunion tour of Europe. They recorded several of those shows but Mainieri didn’t listen to the tapes for two years. He eventually did, and the result is the two-CD set Holding Together (N.Y.C.). The musicians perform the tunes with great sensitivity to one another, both as an ensemble and in solo spotlights. “Uncle Bob” just swings along, while Mainieri’s gliding vibes impart an almost magical quality to a lovely version of Ellington’s “In a Sentimental Mood,” and “The Time Is Now” is a 22-minute-plus opus that gives everyone a chance to shine. There are too many high points on this solid set to mention, but it should be noted that Berg’s playing is vigorous and inventive throughout and provides a poignant reminder of the profound loss the jazz world suffered when he was killed in a car accident.

Life I Know is the third and much anticipated album from British guitarist and composer Ant Law. Utilising some of the finest musicians in British Jazz today, Ant Law has crafted a masterpiece, merging wide-ranging stylistic and genre influences, virtuosic musicianship and melodic accessibility into one career-defining album.

It’s these influences that inspire Ant’s ambition and motivation to create.

Seckou Keita has arguably become the most influential and inspiring Kora player of his generation, an exceptional and charismatic musician, and returns with his new album 22 Strings, Seckou explores what it means to be a modern global citizen, and yet to live with seven centuries of tradition and heritage expressed through music. He gives us the kora in its purest guise, a wondrous instrument that can soothe the bloodlust of warriors and take the human spirit to a place of deep meditation, stillness and beauty.

For several years, decades in fact, a lost gem issued originally not just in the US but in the UK as well (and our vinyl pressings were always much better than their US counterparts), on Chrysalis records who, for a while, had some very good material in this genre, for example the two Auracle albums (and wouldn't lots of us like to get those on CD). But finally it's now reappeared on CD and how very nice it is to be reacquainted with it in that format. Anyway, this album ~ his second, as far as I know ~ features a host of jazz luminaries of the day (Hancock, Erskine, Pastorius, Carlton, Ritenour, Gadd, etc.) and its only failing is its mildly raw upper registers, though thankfully there are no vocals to pollute the proceedings and Jaco Pastorius' electric bass work is of truly sterling calibre. On this album, if anywhere, you can hear why he was held in such very high esteem by his contemporaries.

Another clean album filled with lightning bass work from Stuart Hamm. Exuding a city vibe, Outbound is thick with layered guitar, keyboard, and the aforementioned bass. While his technical skill is almost unrivaled, Hamm seems content to stay in the same Neo-Prog Rock groove for this, his fourth album.

Genre: Ethnic Fusion

On the first day of the Intifada, a concert was recorded in front of a six people crowd. This date gave a special meaning to the music that was played, and took it into a different state of mind and atmosphere. This made this special encounter - between the Armenian spirit of Djivan Gasparyan with his unique voice, and the ethnical Mediterranean music of Amir Perelman - the true quest for serenity, not only in the studio, living room or concert hall, but in the hard and hostile environment that man is too often responsible for. We truly believe that music in general, and this album in particular, are true messengers of the power and beauty of music, to give hope and light to all and, unlike any other way, to make a difference in the heart of people.
