Alchemia signals a certain comeback to more traditional forms for master clarinetist Theo Jörgensmann. Recorded live in Krakow, Poland, in May 2006, this collaboration with the Oles Brothers rhythm section perfumes the aural air with scents of Ornette Coleman, David Murray, and Jimmy Giuffre. Agile and delicate as ever, Jörgensmann's playing covers a wide range of expression, from heartfelt tenderness in the clarinetist's "Giuffree" to a much cruder and harsh sound in his "Direction." Despite standing at opposite ends of the album's spectrum, these two pieces share a clarity of thought fans of Jörgensmann's music have known for quite some time now…

This is the one to purchase if you decide to own one Urbani in your collection. Why? The quartet (Luigi Bonafede on piano; Furio Di Castri on bass; and Paolo Pellegatti on drums, with Urbani, of course, on alto sax) performs with uncommon synchronicity on a varied set. While the album is dedicated to Ayler and Coltrane, the music is anything but free-style, as might be implied. Instead, the wonderfully diverse pick of tunes (Coltrane's "Naima," Bird's "Scrapple form the Apple," Waldron's "Soul Eyes," Weill's "Speak Low," among three originals) is played with exquisite passion and precision. "Scrapple," where Urbani is backed only by acoustic bass, is a masterpiece, while "Soul Eyes" is blown with heart-rendering grace. Urbani's own "Dedications" burns, leaving behind little, if any, tread. Think of Urbani as a sort of super-Phil Woods and you might get the idea. Very cool.

Madness and esthetics, humor and beauty, seldom go together well in music, often the one goes at the expense of the other, but not so with this band. Their music is beyond description. There are laughs and crazy vocalizations, sometimes chattering of musical instruments like monkeys in trees, birds in the jungle, maybe pigs, possibly horses, sometimes incomprehensible and a seemingly pointless scattering of notes that never really evolve into phrases…

Free jazz, Avant-garde | Label: Slam Productions - SLAMCD 2105

With his brass project 'Maha Samadhi' saxophonist/composer Paul Dunmall takes a rare step into the world of composition; the suite is based on episodes from the life of Sri Ramakrishna, 19th century Indian mystic and yogi. The group includes trumpeter Percy Pursglove and drummer Tony Bianco. Paul's four previous albums on SLAM have defined his Coltrane interests and influences; the choice of the brass project picks up further on his love of everything Coltrane. Paul writes: "I've been wanting to do a brass project for many years and finally I got the chance. I've enjoyed writing for it and have had some very positive feedback so maybe this will encourage me to do more writing in the future."

This seemingly unbalanced band - two drummers, two bassists, three horns - founded by opera-writing polymath Lukas Kranzelbinder have forged a fierce reputation for sprawling sets that nod to the '60s spiritual Jazz of Alice Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders undercut with Sons of Kemet's interlocking rhythm fluidity. If those parallels are apparent amid the full force of I Can Feel The Heat Closing In and slow-burning, spectral progressions of So He Spoke, the 19-minute Grilling Crickets in a Straw Hut is different level, as guesting guitarist Tobias Hoffmann and flute-wielding resident Johannes Schleiermacher soar above Kranzelbinder's boombastically grooving guembri.
Able to blind you into a trance and make you dance to your knees, Gris Gris twists, blisters and burns like a fevered dream.

This album was written by Composer Joshua Cusack in late 2018 to celebrate his graduation from his undergraduate degree at the Western Australian Academy of Performing arts. The concept of the album was to write a modern jazz album for large ensemble heavily featuring free improvisation as well as electronics.
"The outcome was dark brooding and like no large ensemble jazz I have heard before." - Joshua Cusack, Composer arranger.
"His willingness to take risks, go for ideas, and break the rules which makes this project an ambitious and exciting first recording for someone who will no doubt go on to producing interesting and creative music in the future. Congratulations Josh and welcome to the large ensemble club, we've been expecting you." - Mace Francis
