Three new albums dominate the show….

Mark Kelso is an award-winning Jazz drummer who has worked with artists such as Donny McCaslin, Pat Metheny, Holly Cole, Gino Vannelli and numerous others. As the leader of the Juno nominated Jazz Exiles, Mark is no stranger to the world of music. Playing in every genre from Jazz to Pop to Latin to Orchestral, Mark has been able to finesse his technique as a drummer and composer, as well as open himself up to a wide variety of influences. His new solo album is a departure from the Fusion styles of the Jazz Exiles, and instead explores a more traditional style

In their first duo album “CATCH A FALLING STAR”, just released for the newborn Gibigiana Records founded by the artists themselves, besides original music, singer Alice Ricciardi and pianist Pietro Lussu pick through their favorites from various musical sources: the majesty of the American Songbook, Pop Music from the 50s and 60s , Contemporary Music. In a very eclectic musical program the “fil rouge” is embodied by the unique sound and cool approach of the duo.

The Faculty of Music, University of Toronto bring us Embargo, an album of new music by the University of Toronto Jazz Orchestra. This collection of new music represents several facets of their Jazz Program, with students demonstrating their skills as composers, arrangers, large ensemble performers, and improvisors.

Also featured music from Gorilla Mask, Ivo Perelman, Paul Dunmall and Sam Gill.

      Rudi Fischerlehner drums, percussion2019 Clean Feed CF540CDPeter Van Huffel’s journey through the combination of jazz and rock, alien to the fusion tradition of the seventies and the collage of the nineties, proceeds with yet another opus from the Gorilla Mask gang, as always inclusive of the mindblowing rhythm section of Roland Fidezius and Rudi Fischerlehner. “Brain Drain” is a mishmash of punk, metal, jazz, free improvisation and written avant-garde music, always in the process of construction and deconstruction, going from persistent, headbanging riffs and grooves to abstract and puzzling situations or vice-versa, without excuses nor preconceptions. Black Sabbath is in the house, as are John Coltrane and Albert Ayler, two primary influences of the Berlin-based canadian saxophonist. The energy is overwhelming, but there are melodies on it, not only hammering rhythms or crazy textures. Highly emotional, but also structurally complex with fractured rhythms and bended tempos, this is the music of our present times: full of rage but also of joy. Deep, restless, invigorating and open to any possibility, all the qualities we expect from the art of sounds. –CF
