  • Brenda Earle Stokes “The Consequences of Falling” from Solo Sessions Vol. 1
    • Allsheeneeds Music
    • a solo piano/voice project that was recorded in just under 4 hours in my hometown of Sarnia, Ontario, Canada. As a follow up to my 2014 studio release Right About Now, I wanted to go back to the simplicity of my favorite jazz records by recording live with no overdubs, edits or corrections. What you hear is exactly what came out in the moment.
  • Azimuth “Azimuth” from Azimuth
    • the debut album by British jazz trio Azimuth featuring trumpeter Kenny Wheeler, vocalist Norma Winstone, and pianist John Taylor recorded in 1977 and released on the ECM label.
  • Heather Bambrick “You’ve Got To Be Carefully Taught” from Fine State
    • JUNO & ECMA-nominated Canadian vocalist. The project is a very personal undertaking for Bambrick, with songs that address themes of racism, homophobia, and the general tone of divisiveness in the world today.More than anything, Fine State is a new sound for Heather, demonstrating a more pop-oriented sensibility. “It brings together more of the things that inspire me overall, not just in jazz, and not just in music. The arrangements bear the influence of rock, pop, and folk music, and the tunes we’ve chosen have a strong connection to events happening in the world around me, and to who I am as a musician and as a person.”
