“Pleased to announce we are returning to Europe for the first time in twelve years; while also making our first trip to Russia. We look forward to the company of old friends, years removed, and the pleasure of making many new ones. See you all soon.” – says Alexis Marshall, Daughters vocalist.

Daughters is vocalist Alexis Marshall, guitar player Nick Sadler, drummer Jon Syverson and bass player Sam Walker. Following the release of their 2010 self-titled album, the band took an indefinite hiatus, returning in 2013 for a pair of sold out hometown shows in Providence, and a subsequent smattering of live dates in the intervening years, including joining Dillinger Escape Plan for their final live outings in December of 2017. Daughters have been hailed for their visceral performances, both live and on record,   described as “manic” and “pummeling” with “frantic energy”. The evidence from the three videos in this post is fairly clear!

2018 Driff Records 1801

Dijkstra and Hollenbeck have been collaborating as a duo since the mid-nineties. Recorded as a follow-up on their well-received album Sequence (Trytone Records, 2005), Linger adds French prepared piano master Benoît Delbecq to the mix. Dijkstra and Delbecq met at the Banff Jazz Workshop in 1990 and have collaborated occasionally over the years. As on Sequence, the same process of instant composition was used in the studio: to establish some textures and atmospheres first, then record a few takes per texture, and choose the best takes afterwards without further editing. The titles of the ten tracks all reflect movement of some sort, represented by the multi-layered rhythms, the dense microtonal textures, and the lyrical, lingering melodic interactions of Dijkstra and Delbecq. Delbecq’s mumbling bass synth lines, Dijkstra’s analog synth and processed saxophone sounds, and Hollenbeck’s hard-hitting grooves and almost electronic-sounding percussions give the album a unique sound that defies categories.

2018 CLT Records

CLT consists of three notable musicians who has made a significant mark on the Danish and international jazz scene – both through acclaimed releases as leaders and as solid sidemen. Now they have joined forces in this new trio that combines an energetic and intense expression with a subtle responsiveness to the finer nuances.

The debut album Every Second Is a Blues consists of seven spontaneous improvisations recorded during a single day in the studio in the spring of 2017. Without any prior planning CLT creates a musical universe where there is room for both raw bursts of energy and thoughtful explorations. A common goal for the members of the trio is to let their personal expressions merge so that every track appears as a unified entity. With this in mind they change between abstract soundscapes, romantic tableaus and subtle grooves, all the time using as a point of departure the intense energy that occurs when musicians comes together and develops and explores the music in the moment.

No Hell

Potsdam, New York-based experimental hardcore architects Sunflo’er (pronounced sun+flow+ur) released their second full-length last month via Ottawa, Canada-based Noise Salvation Records, the label helmed in part by Fuck The Facts’ Topon Das. Titled No Hell, the ten-track album was composed between July 2016 and June 2017, recorded, mixed, and mastered at Topon Das’ Apartment 2 Studio, and engineered by Scott Burniston

The band utilizes a multi-layered vocal delivery, over dynamic and hectic hardcore that takes its cues from the likes of Converge, La Dispute, Cursed, Circle Takes The Square, and Dangers. The CD release comes packaged in an art and lyric ‘zine, featuring collages and photos by the band, as well as written and artistic contributions from other members of the New York punk scene.

Guitarist/vocalist Carter Jones says, “The rowdy rock ‘n’ roll vibe in ‘No Hell’ was a welcome discovery during the writing process of the album. We’d been listening to a lot of CCR and going into writing sessions with the goal to capture a similar energy, but also retain our identity as a mathcore act. There were demos of several tracks in the same vein but most were abandoned for just slightly missing the mark in some way or another. ‘No Hell’ came together quickly as a band and we all consider it one of our best compositions, despite being our shortest ever.”

Formed in 2010, the band released two EPs on their own label before signing with Magnetic Eye Records in 2015, which saw the release of their first LP, 1963. They were  also featured on Magnetic Eye’s Helmet tribute, Meantime [Redux] and the forthcoming Pink Floyd tribute, The Wall [Redux].

  • Ethan Shantie – drums, vocals

PROGRAMME NOTES

Itamar Borochov – Blue Nights – Blue Nights (Laborie)

After the excellent “Boomerang” album released in 2016, critically acclaimed in France and around the world, Itamar Borochov once more exhibits what he can do best: putting forward his talents as an experienced melodist and a musician inhabited by a dominant spirit.

Though his hardbop past may come out at times in the structure of his compositions, this new journey proposed by Itamar Borochov (trumpet), his brother Avri (contrabass), Rob Clearfield (piano) and Jay Sawyer (drums) transports us into a space so deep and so dense that we find ourselves sucked up by all these calls from the tradition and this so modern music.

As a deep believer, Borochov also throws his authenticity into his search for “the Divine” even in the music he offers. He catches glimpses of it in various settings, both sacred and profane.
Doug Webb – Ah Leu Cha – Fast Friends (Posi-tone)

Doug Webb saxophone
Michael Dease trombone
Mitchel Forman piano
Chris Colangelo bass
Roy McCurdy drums

2018 Posi-Tone Records
His eighth release for Posi-Tone. This hard hitting session features the inspired virtuosity of Michael Dease on trombone, the cool comping of Mitchel Forman on piano, the steady underpinning of Chris Colangelo on bass, and the bombastic metrics of Roy McCurdy on drums. Not one to be outdone, Webb continues to scintillate and astonish with his effortless mastery of the idiom and technical prowess on his instrument. With an amazing combination of talent, brilliant performances, and an exciting program of music, including several amazing new original compositions, Doug Webb’s latest record “Fast Friends“ is sure to bring bright moments to jazz fans everywhere.
Get The Blessing – If It Can It Will – Bristopia (Kartel)

Get The Blessing set the pace for the current UK Jazz revival, demonstrating that the early pioneers of the scene still have something important to say. Formed back in 1999 by bassist Jim Barr and drummer Clive Deamer (rhythm section of seminal act Portishead) alongside Jake McMurchie (on sax and electronics) and Pete Judge (trumpet and electronics) the Bristol-based four-piece boast a truly international fan-base, having forged a unique signature sound that defies easy classification, yet never loses sight of thumping tunes, monstrously infectious beats, or joyous collective spontaneity. After eighteen years, their ability to produce such creative and intelligent music – balanced with wit and passion – is testament to the free spirit that they embody.

2018 Posi-Tone Records

his fourth leader album for Posi-Tone Sunward Bound displays a clear sense of creative continuity that can be traced back on his previous albums .The program of original compositions are lyrical and clearly suggestive of a modern jazz sensibility, but the focus of the music always remains straight forward with some hard swinging highlights.
Barre Phillips – Inner Door Part 1 – End to End

End to End is a solo bass album by one of the great pioneers of the idiom.
Over the last fifty years Barre Phillips, California-born but long a resident of France, has periodically issued solo recordings, considering them the musical equivalent of diary entries (the first one, in 1968, was called Journal violone), updates on his ever-evolving relationship to his chosen instrument.
This one, he says, will be the last of his albums in this format, so it is of special interest to those who have followed the story so far and, indeed, to anyone wishing to hear a masterful improviser at work,
refocussing lessons learned in the course of a long, creative life.
“It’s the end of a cycle,” says Barre, now 83, of the present recording. “Not a summing up, but the last pages of a journal that began fifty years ago.”
Marcus Klossek Electric Trio – Two Way Mirror – Taken From The Skies 

Marcus Klossek -git, comp
/ Carsten Hein-bass & Derek Scherzer -drums + special guest: Finn Wiesner-saxophone

A Fender Telecaster, bass and drums;
That’s all it takes to make the brand new songs of Marcus Klossek sound great!

Thanks to the multilayered original compositions of the bandleader and the virtuosity of the 3 musicians, a completely varied music emerges, which nevertheless is deeply rooted in the tradition of jazz.

Trygve Seim – Sol’s Song – Helsinki Songs

With its overt lyricism, strong themes and a sense of perpetual melodic invention, Norwegian saxophonist Trygve Seim’s new album quickly identifies itself as a classic-in-the-making. Themes of dedication run through Seim’s Helsinki Songs album, a set of tunes composed – for the most part – in the Finnish capital, and radiating tributes in many directions. Here are songs referencing Igor Stravinsky and Jimmy Webb, pieces dedicated to each of Seim’s gifted bandmates, and tunes that tip the hat, obliquely, to Ornette Coleman and Bill Evans. The quartet plays superbly throughout, with outstanding solos from leader Seim and pianist Kristjan Randalu. Helsinki Songs was recorded in Oslo’s Rainbow Studio in January 2018 and produced by Manfred Eicher.

Wheelhouse is Tom Tallitsch’s fifth outing for Posi-Tone Records (eight overall) from one of the most consistently solid performers in that label’s stable of quality jazz performers. Though this 2018 release again sees the tenor sax master heading up a roster who have led their own notable dates for the label, but this one pairs Tallitsch with a trumpeter for the first time on a Tallitsch record

Combine the proven quintet format with Tallitsch’s penchant for penning memorable post-bop and hard bop tunes in the classic style, and Wheelhouse is akin to Blue Note pulling out a vintage mid-sixties session from the vault performed by label heroes Paul Chambers, Donald Byrd, Herbie Hancock and the like. Even the spotless, analog-warm production by Marc Free evokes Rudy Van Gelder.

Tom Tallitsch’s Wheelhouse is all in a day’s work for this underappreciated tenor saxman, who once again demonstrates the continued vitality of the hard bop form. If that kind of jazz is in your wheelhouse, then this album is sure to be as well.

Mark Turner & Ethan Iverson – Temporary Kings – Temporary Kings

Mark Turner, tenor saxophone
Ethan Iverson, piano

2018 ECM 2583

With Temporary Kings two of the most distinct voices on today’s jazz scene present their debut on record as a duo: Engaging in inspired dialogue Mark Turner and Ethan Iverson here explore aesthetic common ground in the atmosphere of a modernist chamber music-like setting at the Auditorio Stelio Molo RSI, Lugano. The saxophonist and the pianist had begun their association in the Billy Hart Quartet, where the two players featured sympathetically on two ECM albums by that band. The new duo album now contains six originals by Iverson (among them the nostalgic solo tune “Yesterday’s Bouquet”) and two by Turner (including “Myron’s World,” which has acquired near-classic status among contemporary jazz players). There’s an off-kilter blues (“Unclaimed Freight”) and a strikingly melodic, almost Ravelian opening track dedicated to the town where the album was recorded under ideal sonic conditions (“Lugano”), plus an interpretation of Warne Marsh’s playfully serpentine “Dixie’s Dilemma.”

Billy Higgins – drums

the 1958 debut album by jazz saxophonist Ornette Coleman. According to AllMusic, the album “shook up the jazz world”, revitalizing the union of blues and jazz and restoring “blues to their ‘classic’ beginnings in African music”.[2] It is unusual in Coleman’s output in that it features a conventional bebop quintet instrumentation (saxophone, cornet, piano, bass and drums); after this album, Coleman would rarely use the piano, creating a starker and more fluid sound.
