    n.p.: ... a winner IMO!.

    Amok Amor - We Know Not What We Do.



    “You are gonna love this quartet“, writes American journalist Kevin Whitehead. „This quartet was preceded by 'the Starlight trio' of the Berlin players Christian Lillinger, Petter Eldh and Wanja Slavin, but Peter Evans is obviously a full partner in a new band. He brought some prime material, and shows uncanny range. His improvising is airy and abstract, tuneful, and tinged with the blues. His lines and Slavin’s can be disarmingly lovely; the blend is bright and fizzy.”

    “Yeah, they’re all great, but this music is about how they come together, showing creative tradition some crazy love: amour run amok. (Kevin Whitehead, Liner notes)”

    https://intaktrec.bandcamp.com/album...not-what-we-do

    Credits:
    released May 19, 2017

    Christian Lillinger: Drums
    Petter Eldh: Bass
    Wanja Slavin: Saxophone
    Peter Evans: Trumpet

    Pura vida!!.

    Tyshawn Sorey - Pillars


    I’m beginning to explore his music and projects: “Pillars” caught my attention immediately Hippypants!.

    I have “Imagine Sound Imagine Silence” by Ocean Fanfare: an internacional quartet consisting of Tomasz Dąbrowski (trp), Sven Dam Meinild (sax), Richard Andersson (bs) and Tyshawn Sorey (drm): my highest recommendations Hippypants.

    More:

    Finally, from Firehouse 12 Records too and apart of Mary Halvorson’s great ones (IMO), I would like to recommend you/gang “Argonautica” by experimental trumpeter Nate Wooley: a 3 parts/chapters voyage:

    “The group is compositionally set in different duos and trios, working together and separately throughout the fifty-plus minutes of music to slowly build to a shattering climax that raises the question of what jazz-rock can be in the twenty-first century.”

    - Agree 100%.

    Here we go Hippypants, lots of good music my friend!!.

    Enjoy!

    Anyone familiar with Wolfgang Muthspiel and this quartet? I might have to get a couple of these albums.

    Been a Muthspiel fan for a while....last three albums are great, but Rising Grace gets the most play for me lately. I do like the new one....maybe I need to give it more time.

    Just got hold of this - it's a superb album, & a big step forward from their debut. (this is referring to the link to the new Maisha album)

    Who did you like from that gig, Trane? - I saw Ezra Collective a few weeks ago, & they were stunning. On record, I'm also really enjoying the work of Nubya Garcia (who plays in Maisha), & also Nérija (for whom Nubya again plays).

    This is such a fertile scene that has developed in South London - exciting times!

    Pithecanthropus Erectus...

    Jannick Top from Magma composed a track called Epithecantropus Erectus - released as a single in the early seventies. "Utopia Viva" on the other side.

    Maisha were the best thing from that 2-days 6-cpncerts proposed, along with Joe Armon Jones... There was also Theon Cross' tuba and his trio as well, but I thought that after 15 minutes, we'd heard the whole point, and it became boring
    Nubya was quite fine when playing ith Maisha... and guesting with Theon
    Maisha and Theon are coming back in mid-January, and Yazz Ahmed will also be there the previous w-e...

    Has Ezra released anything yet?? Ditto for Nubya and Nerija

    Weird thing about that Maisha album, released by Brownswood records: no catalogue number anywhere on the disc or the sleeve, though.


    I saw Dinosaur last night (Laura Jurd), and tonight, I will see HH's HH, but without Herbie.

    I hope you enjoy Dinosaur - I think Laura Jurd is making some really interesting music!

    Nubya Garcia's new record is called Nubya's 5ive. It's got that Maisha groove right across it: https://nubyagarcia.bandcamp.com/album/nubyas-5ive

    The first Ezra Collective outing starts with the wonderful "Enter the Jungle" - but their follow-up record, Juan Pablo: The Philosopher, is much more consistent, & a real step-up: https://ezracollective.bandcamp.com/...he-philosopher

    Nérija have released a self-titled ep: https://nerijamusic.bandcamp.com/

    I particularly enjoyed the township workout, "Valleys", which has a feel of a big band dance arrangement of classic Abdullah Ibrahim!

    (ps - I really like Yazz Ahmed - her tone on her trumpet/cornet on last year's La Saboteuse is just gorgeous - & I think that the way she is blending Arabic & Middle Eastern melodies & rhythms into her jazz compositions is very exciting!)

    I read a concert announcement in which she was called 'the highpriestress of psycadelic middle-eastern jazz'.

    Says it all really.

    Just got this in the post today and I checked: cat. no. is on the spine of the sleeve at the top, but it's barely legible. It's also on the inner ring of the playing side of the CD.

    Sad news.Clarinet master Perry Robinson died at age 80.Robinson recorded his first session as a leader in 1962.Titled "Funk Dumpling", the session featured Robinson on clarinet, Kenny Barron on piano,Henry Grimes on bass and Paul Motian on drums.

    RIP.

    Hello Gang!.
    Great recommendations and talk ... as usual !.

    Of interest:
    I've been listening to the music/albums of the polish ensamble, a septet nowadays, EABS (Electro-Acoustic Beat Sessions).

    The following words summarize their proposal:

    “The growth in popularity of jazz music in recent years has been described as a renaissance or new chapter for the genre.

    Attracting new audiences has seen a growth in acclaim for international artists including Kamasi Washington & The West Coast Get Down collective or BadBadNotGood.

    This resurgence has also been felt within british jazz scene. Musicians such as Yussef Kamaal, Shabaka Hutchings, Ruby Rushton, Nubya Garcia or Moses Boyd have put a new stamp on jazz music by fusing elements of classic jazz with modern sounds.

    Polish septet, EABS applies a similar philosophy to their music, blending traditional Polish Jazz with sounds from other genres, thus creating a new and personal interpretation of modern jazz.

    EABS have created their unique compositions by employing an approach exercising the idea of “reconstruction from deconstruction” where sampling and looping are merged with jazz improvisations. The injection of hip-hop, jungle, funk, gospel and electronic music add a futuristic tone to the tracks.”
    http://www.eabs.pl/#section-5

    - Repetitions (Letters to Krzysztof Komeda).
    https://eabs.bandcamp.com/album/repe...zysztof-komeda

    “This album is an analysis of conscientiously selected compositions by Komeda between 1962-1967. EABS explores some of Komeda’s lesser-known compositions featured in ballet etudes, movies, short films, documentaries, animations and compositions illustrating Polish poems recited in German. ”

    - Repetitions (Letters to Krzysztof Komeda) Live at Jazz Club Hipnoza (Katowice) ****
    https://eabs.bandcamp.com/album/repe...pnoza-katowice

    - Kraksa/Svantetic is the final part of a dedication to Krzysztof Komeda, recorded straight to tape at Radio Opole in Poland featuring Tenderlonious on flute and soprano saxophone.”
    https://22amusic.bandcamp.com/album/kraksa-svantetic

    - Video:

    Finally, I’m not familiar with their first one:
    - Puzzle Mixtape ... will see! -

    Enjoy!
    Pura vida!!.

    Digging’:

    Savtta Jazz Project - Savtta 0101. (México-2017).



    “Founded in 2012 by drummer Adrián Oropeza and guitarist Jorge Retana, Sattva Jazz Project ventures into electroacoustic music on 0101, its second album. In it, they interpret works of composers in charge of creating works for jazz quartet and new technologies.”
    Pura Vida!.

    Fergus McCreadie is one of the most exciting talents on the Scottish Jazz scene. In keeping with many of the most interesting figures in this scene, with his trio, he explores a musical space in which Scottish folk music connects with the US West Coat cool jazz & more contemporary European/Scandinavian jazz.

    He also plays with Graham Costello's Strata - an altogether different proposition: Strata veer more towards the large group prog-jazz compositional improvisations of Jagga Jazzist, & the serialist grooves of Nik Bärtsch's Ronin.
