Karin Plato – This Could Be The One – This Could Be The One

Vancouver-based vocalist  The album is a result of a decade of Plato composing and arranging music specifically for her Vancouver-based Quintet.

Plato describes the songs and themes as “characters” many of us meet on life’s journey. Some are related to a feeling, or an experience, reflecting life’s joys and sorrows:

This Could Be The One was recorded in the famed Warehouse Studio in Vancouver (Bryan Adam’s studio) with recording Engineer Sheldon Zaharko who was able to capture a spacious, warm, and natural “live off the floor” sound. Special guests include blues star Jim Byrnes and Rebecca Shoichet who each sing a duet with Plato, and trombonist Rod Murray who is the featured guest on two other songs.

Plato’s  band is Chris Gestrin (piano) James Danderfer (clarinets) Laurence Mollerup (bass) and Joe Poole (drums)

“This Could Be The One” is her eighth recording of jazz standards and originals. The recording is an audiophile delight, with all the ambience and exquisite detail captured in a “live off the floor” session. The interplay of each instrument perfectly complements Karin’s voice as she weaves her tales of love, joy and sadness.

This Could Be The One will be officially released worldwide on Friday, April 12th, 2019 on Stikjazz Music.

Sunjae Lee – World on Fire – Entropy

Entropy is the first studio album released by Sunjae Lee since moving to Korea in 2014, featuring trumpeter Peter Evans, a longtime collaborator from Sunjae’s upbringing in Boston, MA. They are joined by regular trio members Minki Cho on Bass and Junyoung Song on Drums, and guest Chris Varga on Vibraphone as well. Entropy is a celebration of randomness and chance, represented by compositions that focus on guided improvisation or indeterminate elements. The album seeks to capture the meeting point between order and disorder, and the gradual progression towards chaos that is implied in the title.
