Simple but stylish Nordic modern pop with touch of jazz - new Beady Belle album "Cricklewood Broadway".

They call this music "future jazz" in Northern Europe - you'll hear these songs in every respectable club during nearest weeks for sure

Billy Martin (of Medeski Martin and Wood) released new solo album  - "freaky brass big band with Downtown feel". Not essential listening but contains some nice moments (fortunately humor is presented). Especially I like only composition with vocals (great female vocalist reminds me some last Nina Hagen jazzy albums - not by voice (she is obviously better vocalist than Nina) but by atmosphere)

French baritone saxophonist Celine Bonacina's second album on German Act label is pleasant surprise on European contemporary jazz scene. French leading fusion guitarist Nguyen Le protegee, differently from many smooth/chamber overpolished  faceless hybrids her album is alive - with freer adventurous moments and lot of fun.

a relaxing album, tribute to composers Mauricio Einhorn et Johnny Alf known for their great contribution to the Bossa Nova style



great piano playing by Kenny Barron
I think the problem with a lot of the fusion music is that it's extremely predictable, it's a rock rhythm and the solos all play the same stuff and they play it over and over again ...

I liked it, I don't have a lot of jazz albums where baritone is so prominent, so that was really good to hear.
Is that song fairly representative of the album?

songs vary (what is serious plus for me) in genres, some are more world/latin influenced, other - with freer improvs, but with lot of tenor on the front everywhere (agree, rare case). Plus guests vibraphonist , German nu jazz piano star Michael Wollny and Danish great contemporary jazz bassist Lars Danielsson. 

Few more samples are here:

Even though it was released last year in Japan as an import, Hiromi's new album "Move" comes out in March, and I'll be getting it. I could have gotten it when it first originally came out, but I procrastinated, and now the price for the import skyrocketed. Why her albums are released in Japan before the rest of the world, and for months before the "official" release confuses me, especially because she is based in New York.

Just checked this out http://www.jambands.com/news/2012/11/30/the-return-of-john-scofield-s-uberjam-band

John Scofield is reuniting with his "Uberjam" band, otherwise known as The John Scofield Band.

Quote
Scofield will both tour and record with the Uberjam group in 2013.

Louis Cato and longtime Uberjam member Adam Deitch will alternate drums duties on Scofield’s new album as well as on the road (Deitch is confirmed to play Dallas, TX’s Lights All Night Festival on Tuesday with Break Science). The Uberjam band’s new release is due out in May on Emarcy/Universal. They are expected to tour throughout 2013.


Really excited!!! Uberjam and Up All Night are two of my favorite Scofield albums, and especially excited because I haven't looked forward to a new Scofield album since "This Meets That" way back in 2007.

I know Israeli reeds player Gilad Atzmon mostly from his collaboration with English ska/rock'n'rollers The Blockheads and later -from work with Robert Wyatt. This his new solo album is a collection of musical souvenirs from different world's cities where Gilad played his music - from Buenos Aires to Tel Aviv and Paris. Living in UK for two decades he's a household name on British jazz scene. With main accent on emotional side and not on musicianship virtuosity, this album is probably his most relaxed,lyrical (even old-fashioned-romantic) Gilad work for years.

Last year noisy Scandinavian  trio The Thing (Swedish sax player Mats Gustafsson, Norwegians bassist Ingebrit Haker Flaten and drummer  Paal Nilssen-Love) released unusual for them easy accessible album The Cherry Thing (with Don Cherry step-daughter Neneh Cherry on vocals). Really nice album if a bit too lightweight received a great media and was one between most popular year's releases around Europe.  

listen here:

This early January Mats Gustafsson continued the project with much more ambitious release - on a base of his another full-Swedish band Fire! (with bassist Johan Berthling and drummer Andreas Werliin (Tonbruket)). This time he increased Fire! trio till Fire!Orchestra adding more 27(!) members (5 singers, 10-piece reeds section, 4 guitarists, 3 bassists,3 drummers, keyboardist and electronics wizard) to existing trio. Some wellknown North European musicians as guitarist David Stackenas, former EST bassist Dan Berglund and Atomic trumpeter Magnus Broo participate.

The result is fantastic: avant-garde jazz big band , modern day "Escalator Over The Hill" or Centipede. May be I'm wrong but I expect we have one among few best this only started year's releases here

Still for listeners who expect some more jazzy music from him instrumental versions of songs are added as bonuses.


Songs all are melodic, some - even catchy and vary from urban r'n'b to world beat to old-fashioned melancholic pop-jazz. First (pop) media reviews are positive so it's enough reason to expect some album's commercial success, at least around Benilux and France.

Formerly classical pianist, Stefano Battaglia for two decades was one of leading Italian contemporary jazz musician with series of albums mostly on domestic labels ( avant-garde,contemporary jazz and sometimes third stream). Few years ago he was signed by ECM, this album is his fifth on this German label. 

If during last three-four years ECM most advantage releases are usually related with NY scene musicians, Battaglia's music cover their more traditional segment - chamber European contemporary jazz. Fortunately his playing is far from genre's cliche, probably his avant-garde experience helps here. As with other South European pianists, his music is warmer than usual ECM "Nordic sound" , melancholic and dreamy in moments. Recorded in Switzerland, sound is different from ECM German or Norwegian studios (same sound usually have their Udine studio's recordings). In all - don't expect any news but traditional ECM music, upper segment though.
