Vibraphonist Matthias Lupri has gained international attention because of his mastery of this percussion instrument, a rare one in the jazz idiom, but one that he induces to speak in a beautiful array of musical colors and textures. On Same Time Twice, the Berklee graduate teams up with guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel, saxophonist Mark Turner, acoustic bassist Reuben Rogers, and drummer Gregory Hutchinson, all excellent leaders in their own right. But despite the giant-sized talent of this ensemble, there are no conflicts of jazz interests here, just splendid complementing and soloing and audacious improvising.

To hear many hard bop hard-liners tell it, all avant-garde jazz is nothing more than atonal screaming. The problem with such sweeping generalizations is that some avant-garde jazz is, in fact, quite musical. A perfect example is Dave Douglas' Convergence, an experimental, adventurous outing that incorporates everything from classical and chamber music to Jewish, Middle Eastern, and East European music.

There is indeed a spirit that moves through Dave Douglas' first Brass Ecstasy recording: the late Lester Bowie. Bowie's Brass Fantasy group cut a few compelling albums that combined cover versions of all sorts of music – as well as originals – that were arranged for a brass orchestra. The most famous of these, The Great Pretender, is an obvious model for Douglas on this outing. The four brass players include Vincent Chancey on French horn, Luis Bonilla on trombone, Marcus Rojas playing the tuba, and Douglas, of course, on trumpet.

“A memoria d’uomo coulisse e tasti non si sono incrociati così spesso senz’altra compagnia che loro stessi. Tra le opere compiute in tal senso vi è quella più recente (2002) firmata da Wycliffe Gordon ed Eric Reed:«We». Risalendo il colle del tempo ci s’imbatte nella coppia Willem Van Manen & Misha Mengelberg condue brani incisi nel 1979 alla Bimhuis di Amsterdam e inseriti dell’album BvHaast che porta il nome del trombonista olandese. E già questo attira.” (Alceste Ayroldi, Musica Jazz 10/2013).

J'aime écrire de la musique de chambre et des chorales, et particulièrement de la musique pour orchestres.

This release, Shimmering, is part of a twin set of the works of Ketil Bjornstad. The sister album, Images, is being released simultaneously, and they will also be released as a double set. Both albums were recorded by Ketil Bjornstad himself, on the same piano, but two years apart in two different studios. Solo piano holds an important place in the compositional work of Bjornstad. His piano albums often morph into an improvised recital. Some parts of the album will have completely improvised segments, and some will have musical fragments that have a profound meaning for Bjornstad. Shimmering consists of a concert which was held in the studio with a small audience of 40 people. Bjornstad states that the presence of the audience, as well as the timing of the recording session, had a great impact on the result.

The Shape of Water is a science fiction fairy tale written and directed by Guillermo del Toro, starring Sally Hawkins, Richard Jenkins, Octavia Spencer, Michael Shannon, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Doug Jones. It’s an odd mishmash of a film – it’s one part romantic drama, one part monster movie, one part spy thriller, and it explores additional themes that range from one character’s closeted homosexuality to another’s love of classic Hollywood musicals – but somehow it all works beautifully. Hawkins plays Elisa, a shy mute woman who works as a cleaner on the night shift at a military research facility in the 1960s.

Frank Sinatra never stopped singing love songs; arguably, it was what he did best. From the start of his career, Sinatra positioned himself as a singer of romantic songs, and he was believable in the role – who could fail to fall to that voice? The holders of Sinatra's other major-label output – Sony and Warner Bros. – have previously released collections of the key love songs Sinatra recorded for them, so it's surprising that it took Capitol this long because many of his greatest romantic ballads and up-tempo swingers were the product of his tenure with that label (a good many of them were found on 1955's momentous Songs for Swingin' Lovers! album).

It is a rare pleasure these days to hear a singer with a completely original sound, an immediately recognizable voice and style that mesmerizes with sheer tonal beauty. Such an artist is Maysa, who, like Anita Baker (to whom she is sometimes compared) occupies a completely unique niche in the musical cosmos, at the intersection of jazz and soul. But Maysa has ranged far more widely, into the realms of Acid Jazz, as a featured vocalist with Incognito, and dance music. Her multi-faceted artistry is part of what makes her special but it may also be a reason why she has not been more widely known, despite the fervor of her fans, in a world that depends far too much on easy categorization. The release of her seventh album, METAMORPHOSIS, an impressive set of all-original material that follows up on her two acclaimed albums of classic soul, may well be the album that takes her to the next level of appreciation as one of the foremost contemporary vocalists on the scene today.

Une habitude, presque un rite. C'est la rencontre avec un musicien, qui détermine mon désir d'un album. Vincent Llê Quang, entendu pendant une jam, a déclenché cette nouvelle aventure. Ce concert au Triton, je l'ai voulu complètement ouvert, sans partition, comme un chemin sans repère, seulement l'inspiration du moment. Du "free jazz"? oui, enfin. Je dirais plutôt de l'improvisation totale. Un art aujourd'hui souvent oublié, que nous avons beaucoup pratiqué avec l'indispensable Henri Texier, a différentes périodes de notre parcours. "Liberi Sumus" m'a redonne l'envie d'explorer, encore, une forme de musique qui demande une écoute particulière entre les musiciens, et un public ouvert à la prise de risque que cela implique. Liberi Sumus! Nous sommes libres! Free at last! Vous aussi."

No matter where you look this year – at least in the realm of Latin-Jazz – you are unlikely to find a recording where the bass is played with greater melodic beauty than here on Bajo Mundo by the Puerto Rican musician Oskar Cartaya. It is also true that no attempt has been made to ‘lose’ the rhythmic role of the instrument – whether in its electric fretted or fretless incarnation, or as the more traditional contrabass. If anything Oskar Cartaya makes it a point to emphasise this rhythmic character. However, Mr Cartaya simply leans naturally towards melodicism and because he is so gifted his ability to present the bass as both a melodic and harmonic instrument as well is simply sublime, and, it becomes necessary to stress, that too in the kind of company he keeps on this recording.
