This music helped define one era and augur in the next. Buddy Tate was one of the “Texas Tenors”, players from the Lone Star State who share the trademark big, warm tenor sax sound drenched in the blues. From 1939-48 he was a featured soloist in the iconic Count Basie Orchestra, playing the riff-laden Kansas City swing style that presaged R&B, rock & roll, and bop. At the time of this 1970 recording, Tate’s band presided at NYC’s Celebrity Club, extending that KC tradition. Afro-American poet-writer Amiri Baraka marveled, “(they played) not just danceable music, but that heavy music people have to dance to…” 1930s swing classics Undecided, Airmail Special, and Tuxedo Junction, and the KC anthem Moten Swing define that last word’s meaning. Candy and Body and Soul feature Tate’s lyrical side and his debt to Coleman Hawkins and Ben Webster. The boogie-woogie Ben’s Broken Saxophone boasts hip “head” arrangements, buttery trombone and soulful sax solos, while pianist Nat Pierce’s One for Johnny is a lushly orchestrated walking ballad. A tribute to an era, these are soulfully swinging pieces and a hell of a lot of fun.

iLenKa is an ensemble of varying dimensions (2 to 6 musicians) playing the music of composer and multi-instrumentalist Robert Len united with the screenings and scenarios created by violinist Carole Meneghel.

iLenKa’s entrancing music is the fusion of world music with lounge and jazz influences. Sometimes smooth, sometimes intense, sometimes cinematographic, sometimes virtuoso, the melodies and performances are characterized by their subtlety and wide range of emotions, combining the violin’s warmth with a multitude of surprising instruments from around the globe such as Tibetan bowls, Armenian duduk, Australian didgeridoo, Native American, Irish and Romanian flutes, Argentinian moseño, Peruvian and Cuban cajón, traditional flugelhorn, trumpet, cymbals, and more.

iLenKa is a very original new world music experience. Give it a listen.

Already 30 years that his first album as a band leader, «Spleen», was released with the “New Musette” Quartet. Already 30 years that he restored the image of a so called old fashioned instrument, bound to play for Saturday nights ballrooms. Already 30 years that he is navigating in all kinds of musical styles, flirting with salsa, merging with tango, without losing his soul, deeply anchored in his French-Italian roots.

Recorded: 2014

‘Creation’ signals a departure from the ‘traditions’ of Keith Jarrett’s many ECM recordings of solo improvised piano. Earlier concert recordings have reflected the flow of musical ideas and inspirations as developed in the course of an evening but this album – drawn from concert recordings made in Japan, Canada and Europe in 2014 – is different.

Jolie Holland has always embodied everything weird and wonderful in the history of American music, but Wine Dark Sea takes it to a new level. Raw and unrestrained, bristling with kinetic energy, Wine Dark Sea is unlike anything she’s ever recorded, but is also the purest and most assured evocation of Holland’s vision to date. A joyfully unrestrained masterwork, the record delivers: louder, noisier, raw and visceral. It is an inventive and fiery reimagining of delta blues, free jazz, classic r&b and country, infused throughout with a no wave abandon.

„This solo piano set by George Shearing is quite eccentric and unpredictable. Freed from the constraints of his popular Quintet, Shearing lets his imagination loose on songs that include ‘My Ship,’ ‘Happy Days Are Here Again,’ ‘The Entertainer’ (which is turned into jazz after a rag beginning), ‘Londonberry Air,’ and — unfortunately — ‘Send in the Clowns,’ on which he makes the mistake of singing. Some of the classical allusions are a bit too cute, but Shearing’s wit and charm eventually win one over.“ (Scott Yanow, AMG)

„George Shearing, after over two decades as leader of his popular Quintet, was largely taken for granted as a pianist. His trio recordings for MPS in the mid-’70s did a lot to salvage and restore his former reputation as a virtuoso and a distinctive player.

„The most underrated recordings of George Shearing’s career were his trio sets made in the mid-’70s for MPS after the breakup of his popular Quintet. This particular LP is one of three that feature the brilliant pianist in a drumless trio with guitarist Louis Stewart and bassist Niels Pedersen.
