Belgian-born pianist Jonas Cambien currently resides in Oslo and is supported by first-rate regional musicians on his debut outing as a leader. No doubt, this trio possesses a distinct personality as the artists seemingly concoct a horde of magic potions on a per-track basis. Here, free-form maneuvers evolve into tangible themes amid quirky advancements and spunky, off-kilter interplay. Each piece stands on its own. And from an avant-garde jazz perspective, the musicians often equalize the blustery improvisational segments with hummable melodies, signaling a welcome and rather unanticipated surprise for 2016.

My introduction to the band known as Tub Ring was back in 2008 when they opened for Mindless Self Indulgence. I hadn't listened to anything from them and was more excited that they were touring with the guitarist of Creature Feature. I was absolutely taken aback when they took the stage and performed their brand of chaotic everything and the kitchen sink music. Since then I've been following them vigorously. Unfortunately they all but disappeared after their 2010 album The Secret Handshake. However following a successful crowd funding campaign to make a best of vinyl the band is back with a brand new full length album called A Choice Of Catastrophes. So does this album deliver after seven years? Or is it just a catastrophe?

There Once Was A Night Of "Choko-Muro" The Paradise is the second album by Japanese band Providence. Is a exciting blend of dynamic jazzrock (great guitar and synthesizers) and mellow symphonic rock like early King Crimson (wonderful violin-Mellotron eruptions). The line-up includes a new guitarist and an additional saxophone player. Providence were formed in 1985. For some years around their foundation they had changed the members or produced some demo tapes but they could not appear upon major scene in those days. In 1989 they saw the light with solidifying their members and recording their debut album 'And I'll Recite An Old Myth'…

Composer Hans Zimmer's jaunty theme for Guy Ritchie's muscular 2009 re-imagining of the world's most recognizable super-detective, Sherlock Holmes, dutifully reflected the newly installed humor and 21st century action star pathos that the director brought to the character. For Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, Zimmer once again infused the series with wit and wickedness, stacking his already established themes with an effusive Romanian flair, reflecting the addition of Girl with the Dragon Tattoo star Noomi Rapace's turn as a Gypsy fortune teller.

Gary Husband has been at the forefront of the international jazz scene for many years. He is that rare breed: a musician equally fluent in expression, and internationally lauded, on two instruments, in this case, drums and keyboard. Gary’s latest album, "A Meeting of Spirits" is an innovative re-interpretation of the music of legendary guitarist, bandleader and composer John McLaughlin that in many ways demonstrates the totality of Husband’s multifaceted talent.

With every recording Omar Sosa releases, his horizons continue to broaden within the context of world ethnic fusion, but with Across the Divide, he's bettered himself yet again. This collection of jazz-influenced, Latin-tinged music crosses the disparate genres of country folk and tribal sounds, recognizing the migration of the banjo from Africa to the Eastern seaboard of America, and percussion from the griot village to the rural Mid-Atlantic. In collaboration with vocalist and story teller Tim Eriksen, Sosa merges rhythm and ancestry via inspiration from Langston Hughes, John Coltrane, King Sunny Ade, Pete Seger, and contemporary bluesman Otis Taylor as popular reference points.

Unicorn were definitely a band influenced by the British neo prog movement of the 1980s. The band was started by Swedish musician Dan Swanö, who is currently the vocalist, guitarist, ex-bassist and ex-drummer for the band Nightingale, lately vocalist, keyboardist and drummer for the band Witherscape, as well as the Owner of Unisound but he achieved fame as the vocalist and songwriter of progressive death metal band Edge of Sanity. This album have been originally released in Demo format on cassette. For this remastered re-release Dan have re-recorded all vocals and done the new remix. “A Collection of Worlds – Resurrection” is a brave project. But it shows the talent that Dan Swanö had as a teenager mixing with the talent that he has now.
