Hace tres años, Nueva Orleans fue arrasada por el Huracán Katrina dejando tras de sí cerca de 1.500 muertos. Esta catástrofe fue la que inspiró al cubano Chucho Valdés para componer su nuevo disco, Canto a Dios, una oración para que "no vuelva a suceder nada igual", ha explicado hoy el músico. En este álbum, que se presenta ahora en España, Chucho Valdés (hijo del también músico cubano Bebo Valdés) ha reunido cinco temas, dos de ellos inéditos, en los que junto con la Orquesta y el Coro Nacional de Cuba fusiona el jazz con la música sinfónica en un tributo a la ciudad de Nueva Orleans, el río Misisipi y África.

In 2009 Chucho Valdes, a pianist, instrumentalist, and composer who already had four Grammy Awards and is regarded by specialists as one of the top four jazz players of the world, won the Grammy in the category of Best Latin Jazz Album. He shared the award with his father, Bebo Valdes, with the album Juntos Para Siempre (Together Forever). Father and son, both Cuban piano virtuosos and exceptionally talented composers got together to record this example of their musical greatness after their tour “Juntos para siempre” in Spain.

Influenced by releases on the Stax label, Carla Thomas or Booker T & The MGs, Arthur Conley, Sam and Dave, Otis Redding and Aretha Franklin, German producer Siegfried E Loch formed Memphis Black as a studio group in the late 60s to highlight the Hammond playing of Ingfried Hoffmann. The "Soul Club" album features 12 tracks, one third original, two thirds covers, of soulful Hammond funk. "Why Don't You Play The Organ, Man" and "Hang 'Em high" were immediately pulled off the original release for DJs and consequently released on 7" in the UK, having a great impact in the Northern Soul scene right up to the present day. Obviously original copies of this LP are very thin on the ground, so take advantage of this reissue!

After years of playing avant-garde jazz and post-bop music, Jay Hoggard returned to the straight-ahead bop-oriented tradition with this CD. On "Put on a Happy Face," a swinging "Blues Bags," and a medium-tempo version of Thelonious Monk's "Ruby, My Dear," Hoggard emulates Milt Jackson a bit. He also sounds quite comfortable playing Afro-Cuban jazz on "Aguacate" and his solos on the two other swinging originals is very much hard bop, although never overly predictable. Pianist Geri Allen, sounding more conservative than usual, is nevertheless still a stimulating soloist and accompanist, with bassist Ed Rozie and drummer Frederick Waits keeping the music swinging and moving.

Jay Hoggard's lone date for Contemporary (reissued as an OJC CD) was one of the vibraphonist's finest early sets. The music (all six songs are Hoggard originals) falls into the area of advanced hard bop. Chief among the sidemen are Chico Freeman (heard on tenor, soprano and bass clarinet), keyboardist Kenny Kirkland, and colorful percussionist Paulinho Da Costa; two songs utilize three vocalists, and there is a strong African feel to some of the ensembles.

Se è vero che la musica di questo CD è nata per accompagnare due film (Il più crudele dei giorni e L'isola), è altrettanto vero che Paolo Fresu non 'subisce' tale condizione, assemblando i brani in maniera tale da dar vita ad un lavoro unitario, dalla forte identità e tale da sintetizzare varie fasi della sua ormai già lunga carriera.

Vibraphonist Jay Hoggard gained his initial recognition for his playing in avant-garde and adventurous settings. By the late 80s, Hoggard had decided to explore hard bop and straight-ahead jazz. On this out of print but worthy CD, the vibraphonist recalls Bobby Hutcherson and Milt Jackson in spots, swinging on a variety of originals, Stevie Wonder's "You And I" and "Sonny's Themes" (which covers Sonny Rollins' "Alfie" and "Sonnymoon for Two"). The young Benny Green is a major asset on piano, bassist Marcus McLaurine and drummer Yoron Israel are excellent in support, and Hoggard's songs are full of variety and color.

Cette nouvelle formation en quartet offre à Nicolas plus de liberté d’improvisations, détail qui a son importance lorsque l’on travaille avec un artiste comme Joe, personnage fantasque, virtuose et imprévisible. La musique oscille entre swing, bop et modal. Les influences se promènent entre Dexter Gordon et Sonny Rollins pour le ténor et Charlie Parker et Jackie Mc Lean pour l’alto.

Nostradamus: The Death of Satan, the ninth release by Zorn’s most intense 21st century ensemble, is a triumph. In this wildly varied program ranging from the softest sacred whisper to the most heretical hysteria, Zorn brings his unique compositional blending of classical, jazz and rock to new heights. The Simulacrum band is tighter than ever and the recording is richer and more powerful. With a stunning clarity of sound, brilliance of performance and towering compositional vision, Nostradamus is Zorn at his very best.

"Un progetto su Jimi Hendrix è come un progetto su Mozart: tanto complesso quanto entusiasmante. Abbiamo accettato la sfida, partendo dal presupposto che dovessimo cercare in Hendrix le caratteristiche che sottostavano al suo modo di intendere la musica, provare ad assimilarle e tradurle usando i nostri linguaggi. Abbiamo deciso di utilizzare un organico il più possibile lontano da quello che era solito usare per i suoi gruppi: una voce femminile e un violoncello (Naomi Berrill), un fender Rhodes, un synth e un pianoforte (Simone Graziano e Alessandro Lanzoni), una batteria (Stefano Tamborrino) e due sax tenori (Francesco Bigoni e Dimitri Grechi Espinoza).

Norwegian trumpeter Nils Petter Molvær made his small mark on fans and critics alike in the United States with his fine pair of ECM recordings. After a couple of years working in Europe, he returned to the release scene in the U.S. with An American Compilation in June of 2006. That disc was a selection of tracks from this album, his remix disc, and live cuts of tunes from the ECM period. In fact, ER is being issued simultaneously with Streamer, the live CD.

Saxophonist Houston Person and bassist Ron Carter have a duo partnership that goes back at least as far as their two 1990 recordings, Something in Common and Now's the Time! Since those albums, the legendary artists have released several more duo collaborations, each one a thoughtful and minimalist production showcasing their masterful command of jazz standards, blues, and bop. The duo's 2016 effort, the aptly titled Chemistry, is no exception and once again finds Person and Carter communing over a well-curated set of jazz standards. As on their previous albums, Chemistry is a deceptively simple conceit; just two jazz journeymen playing conversational duets on well-known jazz songs.

SELWA marks the second pairing of fusion guitarist Steve Tibbetts with Tibetan Buddhist nun Choying Drolma. Like 1997's CHO, SELWA is a deeply atmospheric, musically adventurous journey that remains true to the spiritual underpinnings of Drolma's practice. A monk whose resonant, mellifluous vocals evoke both the solemnity and the serenity of her chants and prayers, Drolma's singing gifts strike the listener immediately. Even more striking is how perfectly Tibbetts's percussion, effects-drenched guitar work, and production flourishes suit Drolma's voice. Tibbetts's accompaniment is supremely sensitive, supporting and echoing Drolma's phrases and inflections with a variety of suitable instrumentation.
