Alexander Hawkins – Song All The Way from Iron Into World (Pears from an Elm) (Intakt)

Alexander Hawkins piano

Recorded September 22-23, 2018 at Radio Studio, Zürich

2019 Intakt CD 330

Alexander Hawkins is a creative epicentre from the London jazz scene and is regarded in the UK as one of the most innovative musicians of the younger generation with a surprising radius of action. He plays with Evan Parker, Wadada Leo Smith, Taylor Ho Bynum, Louis Moholo, Shabaka Hutchings and Elaine Mitchener. ‘Iron into Wind’ is the name of his new piano solo.

The phrase “Iron into Wind” evokes for him both the transience of improvisation and a fascination with solid material, represented by the powerful blocks of sound to be heard in several of these pieces. Richard Willimas writes in the liner notes: “The mood varies from the two-handed avant-gospel figurations of “Congregational” to the hurtling “Étude” via the austere ruminations of “Tumble Mono”, the knotted blues of “Strange Courage” and the explosive accelerations of “It Should Be a Song”, with a diversion, in “Pleasant Constellation”, by way of variations on an element from Sun Ra’s “Fate in a Pleasant Mood”. What he achieves here is a fine balance of all his interests, creating a self-portrait of a wonderfully inventive modern musician.”
Carlos Bica, Daniel Erdmann, DJ Illvibe – Caruma from I Am The Escaped One

Portugese double bassist Carlos Bica joins forces with German saxophonist Daniel Erdmann and turntablist DJ Illvibe, the son of pianist Alexander von Schlippenbach, for a unique album of improvisation blending experimental and jazz approaches with substantive layers of genre-blending from Illvibe’s record arsenal, all handled with accessible control and lyrical sophistication.

Recorded at Culturgest, in Lisbon, Portugal, on March 2-3, 2018

2019 Clean Feed CF519CD

“Double bassist and composer Carlos Bica has carved out a jazz niche for himself with his inventive style of lyrical-indie-jazz. Among the several musical projects he leads, his trio AZUL has become his showcase as a bass player and composer. For more than twenty years Bica’s trio AZUL with Frank Mobus and Jim Black has fascinated its listeners. Living in Berlin, Portuguese Bica again and again creates a music that seems familiar yet excitingly new and personal at the same time.

With his new album I Am the Escaped One in association with two of the most idiosyncratic figures of the German scene, saxophonist Daniel Erdmann and turntablist DJ Illvibe, the music goes even beyond anything he did before. Daniel Erdmann, a major voice in the European jazz scene, has developed an unique tenor sax sound in ensembles like Das Kapital or Velvet Revolution, built on top of the jazz tradition but committed to find new paths. DJ Illvibe is and remains a sound innovator, a gold digger for the craziest sound-shreds, Vincent von Schlippenbach is DJ Illvibe and the world is a record.

If you’re searching for something different and fulfilling you found it, I Am the Escaped One is the perfect soundtrack for the movie that still has to be made.”-Clean Feed
Sam Dillon – Force Field from Force Field

Saxophonist Sam Dillon unleashes his horn to create a powerful “Force Field” on his first release for Posi-Tone. Joining Dillon on the date is the rhythm section of pianist Theo Hill, bassist David Wong, and drummer Anwar Marshall, along with a few performances by guest artists Michael Dease on trombone, Andrew Gould on alto saxophone and Max Darché on trumpet. With a program of exciting original compositions, and a few tasty covers, the whole session swings into action and shines with bright moments.  As saxophonist and band leader, Sam Dillon is noticeably shifting into another level. Avid listeners will certainly agree that this record is a captivating performance that will encourage jazz enthusiasts to explore the wonders of “Force Field” with amazement and delight.
Gonçalo Almeida, John Dikeman, George Hadow – Pentagon from O Monstro

An album of intense and passionate free jazz from the Netherlands trio of John Dikeman on sax, George Hadow on drums and Goncalo Almeida on bass, captured live at Zeal 100 in Amsterdam on March 4th 2014 for four romps in creative conversation, balancing technical playing with enthusiastic joy and wild energy, an unusual but very welcome album in the Creative Sources catalog.
