Jazz / Afro Beat / Funk / Jazz Funk / Bebop

Ce n’est pas parce que cette fanfare issue du monde alternatif exhibe fièrement une faute d’accord dans son patronyme qu’ils sont coutumiers des fautes de goût ou des fausses notes. C’est davantage le sens de l’audace et l’irrespect pour les conventions qui animent ces canassons du son, dont certains membres forment la section cuivre du gang du contrebassiste Fantazio. Champions de la course d’obstacles, ils sautent avec aisance d’une compo sous influence afrobeat ou éthio-Jazz à un morceau de be-bop, rendent hommage au P-Funk de George Clinton avec leurs invités Push Up, Sandra Nkake et Allonymous, ou font sonner leurs conques pour défricher des terres inconnues, seuls ou en compagnie de la chanteuse italienne Bianca Iannuzzi. Joyeux et débridé, ce Colis Suspect finit bel et bien par nous sauter à la figure, mais on ne regrette pas de l’avoir ouvert.

Mehr als fünfzehn lange Jahre hat es gedauert, bis Jazz-Ikone Lisa Ekdahl nun endlich auch eine ihrer unnachahmlichen Liveperformances verewigen liess. Auf "At The Olympia Paris" präsentiert sie der Hörerin das ausverkaufte Abschlusskonzert ihrer fulminanten Europatournee aus 2009/2010 und interpretiert, neben einigen eigenen Songs, vor allem zeitlose Jazz-Standards wie "April in Paris", "Nature Boy" oder "Tea for Two" - natürlich in gewohnt Ekdahl`scher Manier.

Jazz, Modern Creative | Label: ECM (ecm 2228) | Released: June 2011

“Celestial Circle” is the recording debut of the band of the same name. First assembled for Marilyn Mazur’s season as artist-in-residence at Norway’s Molde Jazz Festival in 2008, the group has since become a popular institution on the concert circuit, and the present disc, recorded in Oslo’s Rainbow Studio in 2010 is issued on the eve of a European tour. It’s a band of diverse strengths and changing moods, song-oriented but also instrumentally expressive.

The music in Bailador is abundant, torrential, brilliant and sophisticated. Everything in Portal is here: rigour and fun, knowledge and generosity, dazzling technique, pleasure in profusion, precision, and jeté… You can hear him everywhere: a playful hedonist enamoured of sharing and, at the same, a cerebral, cutting-edge musician.

Jazz, Modern Creative, Crossover Jazz | Label: Universal Music (Verve) | Year: 2011

For this recent release, I couldn't find any reviews by the "professionals," so I'll give it a go myself:
After listening to the record a couple of times, I still don't know what to make of it. Whereas previous Tigran Hamasyan albums seemed to be organized around a central theme, his latest effort seems to be a mixed bag without obvious connection between the individual songs. Of course, Tigran remains Tigran - a brilliant pianist who knows how to give every tune his own personal seal.

[:SITD:], with their apocalyptic and ravaging approach to electro/industrial, have stated themselves to be somewhat of a ruling class in this genre, having received a number of awards from 2003 to 2007. With Icon:Koru, the band sets out to take the listener on a massive if somewhat inconsistent journey.

The emotional content, lyricism and direct appeal of Gavin Bryars’s music are unique, reflecting a contemporary composer’s absorption and transformation of several centuries of musical craftsmanship in order to reflect his, and our, own epoch. Originally written for harpsichord, After Handel’s Vesper is a strong illustration of Bryars’s post-minimal interests in early music repertoire. Ramble on Cortona, derived from 13th-century music, makes expressive use of the piano’s resonant qualities, while in the highly-coloured, almost impressionistic The Solway Canal, landscapes pass by as if in a dream.

Label: Flower Machine Records | Release Year: 2002-2011

Never realised the breadth of the "Pop-Sike" genre until I heard Fading Yellow, a really fine compilation that hangs together beautifully as an album. That most of the tracks are obscure isn't surprising: everything is a little odd, a little ramshackle, with a strong melancholic undertow and not a little creepiness. Of course, this music is also specific to a particular time in Western pop music history so there's a strong nostalgic element, but the knowledge this music could never be exactly replicated is what also makes it so fascinating. Recommended, in a warm and loving 60s way.
