Judson Trio (Joelle Leandre/Gerald Cleaver/Mat Maneri)Light & Dance ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2021. New Copy 2CDs ... $22.99 25.99
We always love the basswork of Joelle Leandre, and finds that she can really bring something special to a session – which is definitely the case here in a double-length set of trio recordings with Matt Maneri on viola and Gerald Cleaver on drums and percussion! It's a bit hard to describe in words, but Leandre has this way of soundshaping on her instrument that's always very human and personal, even when moving into more abstract territory – something we can't always say for Maneri, but which is definitely part of his performance here – as the three musicians work on these spacious tracks that really take their time to find the right mode, with all sorts of unusual sonic elements that bubble through the improvisations in a wonderful way! CD1 features eight live tracks, all numbered titles of "Wild Lightness" – and CD2 features ten studio numbers, all numbered as "Bright Dance". CD

Rob MazurekAll Distances Inform ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2022. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
Really fantastic solo work from the great Rob Mazurek – an album that features only performances on piccolo trumpet, recorded with this echoey sort of majesty that just seems to further enhance the poetry in the tunes! Rob's an artist we've been happy to follow for many years – and he just keeps on opening new doors in his creativity, especially in recent years – and an album like this marks a new landmark in his rich musical landscape – territory that might have been explored by others over the years, but never with results that are this wonderful! The performances vary in length, which further expands the palette of the recording – and titles include "Through Small Room To End", "As Distance Reveals", "Small Room North Building", "CH3", "Partitions", and "Backwave Movement".

Jeff Parker & Rob MazurekSome Jellyfish Live Forever ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2021. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
A great reunion of the Jeff Parker/Rob Mazurek duo – a pair who've only continued to grow strongly in the years since their Chicago Underground classics – and who bring all that sense of energy to play in their music! The sounds here represent the deeper, more mature styles that both musicians have hit – a way of almost being more powerful by being less aggressive – especially from Mazurek, who's got this wonderfully gentle touch on his horn at times – wrapped up in these waves of sound that come from Jeff's guitar. Parker also contributes some other effects, which really map out a creative collage of electric shades – but again, without ever being too overpowering – and Rob responds with some very interesting acoustic shades of his own. Titles include "Proton Stolons", "Water Flower Medusa", "T Dorhnii", and "Beauty Hydroid". CD

Matthew Shipp & Evan ParkerLeonine Aspects ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2017. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
Beautiful sounds from two dark-tinged improvisers – coming here together in a performance that's supposedly a tribute to John Coltrane, but which comes across in a spirit that's very much their own! Shipp is able to serve out these effortless clusters of notes with that new sense of imagination that's really marked his growth in the past decade – notes that are always full of brooding energy, but never in a way that's sleepy or sloppy. Parker responds with some of his sharpest, fastest lines in years – blowing both tenor and soprano sax, but never in ways that are Coltrane-like – which is no surprise, as Evan's helped evolve jazz tremendously in the decades since Trane's passing. The CD features one extended improvisation "Leonine Aspects 1", which runs for 51 minutes – and the shorter "Leonine Aspects 2". CD

✨✧ Joe McPhee/Michael Bisio/Fred Lonberg Holm/Juma SultanSweet Spot ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2021. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An album that really lives up to its title – as it seems to find a magical sweet spot between all four of the improvising giants on the session – at a level that really makes the record way more than the sum of its parts! The string players here are especially amazing – as Fred Lonberg Holm feels more deeply soulful than usual, and fits perfectly next to the deeper bass talents of Michael Bisio – as the pair create sounds that are complex, but very organic too – given equally organic progressions from the tenor and soprano saxophone work of Joe McPhee. The percussion of Juma Sultan is like the icing on the cake – and titles include "AMS", "Free 3", "Malachi", "Human Being", "The Sweet Spot". CD

✨✧ Tony Malaby/Angelica Sanchez/Tom RaineyHuapango ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2022. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fiercely fluid outing from saxophonist Tony Malaby – a player who always seems to work with a very dexterous spirit, but who really unlocks a special sort of magic here in the company of pianist Angelica Sanchez and drummer Tom Rainey! Tony himself plays tenor and soprano, and Angelica adds in some occasional Wurlitzer electric piano as well – and the group have this way of coming across with different feelings and flavors on every different track – very different than some improvising combos, who might deliver slight variations on the same idea throughout a single album. Instead, it's as if these guys are recasting the mold with each new track – both from a sonic and ideological perspective – on titles that include "Lava Painting", "Lift Off The Sun", "Pie In The Face", "Bird People", "Huapango", "Jump Cliff", and "Water Flowing Flying Stones".

✨✧ Rob MazurekFather's Wing ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2022. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderfully poetic performance from Rob Mazurek – dedicated to the memory of his father, presented with a poem penned by Rob in the notes, and delivered by a quartet who really help Mazurek move into the most spiritual side of his musical spectrum! The group features tremendous work on drums from Chad Taylor – no stranger to Mazurek in performance, but maybe working with an even more essential quality here – alongside the always-great bass work of Ingebrigt Haker Flaten, and some especially nice piano from Kris Davis – who has a way of punctuating the performance to really balance out the sound. Rob plays piccolo trumpet and electronics – and the selections on the recording almost seem to work together as a unified suite, even though they sometimes have a different flavor – titles that include "Spooled", "Sun Ohm 3", "From Here To There", "Signal Frame", "Father's Wing", "Ice Castles Of Saturn", and "Crimson Wing".

✨✧ Myra Melford's Fire & Water QuintetFor The Love Of Fire & Water ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2022. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous quintet of top-shelf improvisers – all coming together here in a reading of a 10 part suite composed by group leader, pianist Myra Melford! The album's easily one of the boldest that Melford has recorded in years – a fantastic reminder of her power when she's really at her best – and her ability to create real magic at a spontaneous level, working alongside Mary Halvorson on guitar, Ingrid Laubrock on tenor and soprano, Tomeka Reid on cello, and Susie Ibarra on drums and percussion! All four other players are key leaders on their own – but come together here seamlessly, in music that's often strongly directed by Melford's piano presence, but explosively creative in all the other parts of the spectrum as well. The set features the long title piece, divided up into ten segments – beautiful throughout! CD

✨✧ Pride Of Lions (McPhee/Lazro/Abrams/Seguron/Taylor)No Questions No Answers ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2022. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic quintet, and one who definitely earn the "pride" in their name – a set of fantastic musicians who could all let their egos get in the way of the music, but who instead come together with a collaborative achievement that's really mesmerizing from the first note to the last! The set begins with one long improvisation, followed by two shorter tracks – but all seem to have this cohesive, organic quality that builds slowly out of the inspirations of individual group members contributing to the whole – both Joshua Abrams and Guillaume Seguron on basses, Chad Taylor on drums and Mbira, Daunik Lazro on tenor and baritone, and the mighty Joe McPhee on alto, soprano, and pocket trumpet! The versatility of McPhee should come as no surprise to anyone who's enjoyed his music over the years – and that spirit really seems to infect everyone here, especially Lazro, who's maybe sounding more essential here than we've heard in awhile. Chad Taylor, as always, is magnificent – and titles include "An Unanswered Question", "An Unquestioned Answer", and "Enough". CD

✨✧ Joshua AbramsCloud Script ... LP
Rogue Art (France), 2020. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Tremendous work from Joshua Abrams – a set that's very different than some of his other work in recent years, but every bit as great! The set's got a lean group – Abrams on bass, Jeff Parker on guitar, Gerald Cleaver on drums, and the great Ari Brown on tenor – of Awakening fame – a group that delivers a more stripped-down version of some of Josh's more spiritual ideals – but in ways that also touch base with more conventional jazz expression! Make no mistake, there's nothing conventional about this set – the approach is very unique, and very striking – and the presence of the younger musicians really sets Ari Brown on fire, and reminds us of what a great soloist he can be when he's pushed to his limits. Titles include "Collapsing Novelty", "Duke Hill", "Echo Tracer", "In Place Of Memory", and "Coniunctio". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ William Parker & Matthew ShippRe-Union ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2021. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Bassist William Parker and pianist Matthew Shipp are no musical strangers to each other – as they've been recording together for many decades, even on more contemporary albums that make the title here a bit misleading! And yet, there's definitely something special about the set – wide-open tracks that really have the duo coming together with energy that's all their own – almost as if Shipp and Parker are saying "yeah, we've played together with others recently, but let's save all the good stuff for a time when we can make a record like this!" The recording quality is superb – not a subtle moment of Parker's basswork is lost, and Shipp's balanced perfectly, both in his approach to the piano, and the way he comes across in the mix – a sublime presentation of the magical improvisational work between both players, on titles that include "Further DNA", "Song Of Two", "Re-Union", and "The New Zo".

✨✧ All Set (Ingrid Laubrock/Stephane Payen/Chris Tordini/Tom Rainey)All Set ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2021. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Twin saxes, coming together here with a really wonderful sound – the tenor of Ingrid Laubrock and straight alto sax of Stephane Payen – criss-crossing beautifully next to the drums of Tom Rainey and bass of Chris Tordini! There's a really special sort of sound going on here – the reed interplay never sounds too cold or academic, as can sometimes happen – and both players have a very intuitive sense of energy – rising and cresting together, breaking off in individual explorations – and often having this sort of inherent swing, even when things get pretty wild. Titles include "Knock Whack", "Dice", "Evaporating Dew", "The Chant", "Out Of Thin Air", and "Harmonization" – the last of which might be a good title for the album! CD

Soft Head (Hugh Hopper/Elton Dean/Alan Gowen/DaveSheen)Rogue Element (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ogun (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
That's Soft Head, not Soft Heap – which is another way of saying that the fantastic music here is yet another strong evolution of the original Soft Machine sound! The quartet features bass from Hugh Hopper and amazing work from Elton Dean on alto and saxello – plus sweet electric piano and electronics from Alan Gowen and drums from Dave Sheen – all spinning out in ways that are right up there with some of the jazziest late work by Soft Machine – no vocals at all, and more than enough free-thinking ideas to have placed the record on the avant jazz label Ogun. Gowen's electric piano is maybe worth the price of the record alone, and Dean is tremendous too – as the group work in a great late flowering of Canterbury ideals, on the titles "Seven Drones", "Seven For Lee", "Remain So", "CRRC", and "One Three Nine". CD features the unissued bonus tracks "C You Again" and "Ranova". CD

Paul Dunmall/Matthew Shipp/Joe Morris/Gerald CleaverBright Awakening ... CD
Rogue (France), 2021. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
A bold, bright awakening from this freely improvising quartet – a crack lineup who work nonstop here for 56 minutes, in a performance captured at the Vision Festival 17 in New York! Paul Dunmall is ferocious on tenor, and really seems to set fire to the piano of Matthew Shipp – as Shipp's moving at a pace and intensity that's even stronger than usual, as if he's trying to keep up with the constantly creative energy of the tenor. And both the bass of Joe Morris and drums of Gerald Cleaver complete the intensity – working as two more sides of a very strongly-shaped quadrangle of sound. The set features one long track – "The Bright Awakening". CD

✨✧ VariousHeroes & Villains – The Sound Of Los Angeles 1965 to 1968 (3CD set) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A deep dive into the sound of Los Angeles in the middle of the 60s – a really well-done box that somehow manages to mix together all the different strains of music that were going on in the city of angels at the time – sunshine pop, garage rock, psych, pop, and even more experimental modes – served up here in a set list that's full of some of the coolest, hippest groups of the time! The box takes its title from a Beach Boys tune, but this isn't a set of well-played oldies from AM radio – and instead, the selection demonstrates the continued appreciation of this period of music over the decades, and the shift in interest to some of the more groundbreaking, obscure groups of the period – served up here with bigger names as well – all with the detailed notes and overflowing amount of tracks that we love from these boxes on the Grapefruit label! There's a massive 90 tracks in all – with work from Mark Eric, Jim & The Lords, The Heroes, Candy Company, Odds & Ends, Spirit, The Misunderstood, Urban Renewal Project, Peanut Butter Conspiracy, Captain Beefheart, Ruthann Friedman, The Rogues, Music Machine, Whatt Four, Velvet Illusions, Merrell & The Xiles, Sanctions, Grass Roots, New Wave, West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, Grains Of Sand, Merry Go Round, Human Expression, Love, Laughing Wind, Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Of Friends, Boystown, Gene Clark, and many others!
