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.

Jazz, Modern Creative | Label: EmArcy | Year: 2011

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.

All eight of the albums Wes Montgomery issued on Verve in the mid-'60s (including the two he did with organist Jimmy Smith) are on this limited-edition, five-CD box set. With the addition of 20 bonus tracks (none previously unreleased, some of them alternate takes or overdubbed versions) and a 76-page booklet that includes readable reproductions of the original LP sleeves, it's the definitive compilation of his work for the label. By its very size, of course, its appeal might be limited to completists and serious collectors.

R&B / Soul / Jazz / Gospel / Deep Soul / Quiet Storm / Soul Blues / Southern Soul

Aretha Franklin has simply been one of the greatest singers of the modern generation, and whether bringing her powerful, passionate voice to bear on gospel standards, songs from the Great American Songbook, jazz standards, pop ditties, or deep Southern soul and R&B, she has always had the presence – much like Ray Charles – to make anything she touches unmistakably hers. Franklin began her career in gospel when she was still a teenager, and her amazing vocal talents, coupled with her fine piano playing, marked her as a once-in-a-lifetime kind of artist, qualities very apparent to legendary talent scout John Hammond, who signed her to Columbia Records.
