Hank Mobley – Thinking Of Home

null

For what would be his final of over 20 Blue Note albums, tenor saxophonist Hank Mobley uses a sextet that also includes trumpeter Woody Shaw, the obscure guitarist Eddie Diehl, pianist Cedar Walton, bassist Mickey Bass, and drummer Leroy Williams for a typically challenging set of advanced hard bop music. For the first and only time in his career, Mobley recorded a “Suite” (consisting of “Thinking of Home,” “The Flight,” and “Home at Last”); the remainder of the set has three of his other attractive originals plus Mickey Bass’ “Gayle’s Groove.” This music was not released for the first time until 1980. It is only fitting that Hank Mobley would record one of the last worthwhile Blue Note albums before its artistic collapse (it would not be revived until the 1980s) for his consistent output helped define the label’s sound in the 1960s. Mobley’s excellent playing and the adventurous solos of Woody Shaw make this hard-to-find LP (his last as a leader) one to hunt for. ~ Scott Yanow

Personnel: Hank Mobley (tenor saxophone); Woody Shaw (trumpet); Cedar Walton (piano); Eddie Diehl (guitar); Mickey Bass (bass); Leroy Williams (drums).

Portico Quartet still sound like nothing you ever heard before. The Mercury nominated East London based outfit’s unique brand of hypnotic minimalism has expanded to embrace new sonic territories. Drawing on the inspiration of electronica, ambient, classical and dance music as they take their strange, beautiful, cinematic, future music to exciting new vistas where the inspiration of Burial, Mount Kimbie and Flying Lotus rubs shoulders with the textures of Arve Henriksen and Bon Iver and echoes of Steve Reich and Max Richter. But all underpinned by a shared joy in collective music making as the band push their inimitable music into the future.

Esperanza Spalding – Radio Music Society (Deluxe Edition) (CD+DVD)

null

It has not taken Esperanza Spalding long to emerge as one of the brightest lights in the musical world. Listeners familiar with her stunning 2008 Heads Up International debut, Esperanza, and her best-selling 2010 release Chamber Music Society, were well aware that the young bassist, vocalist and composer from Portland, Oregon was the real deal, with a unique and style-spanning presence, deeply rooted in jazz yet destined to make her mark far beyond the jazz realm. That judgment was confirmed on February 13, 2011, when Spalding became the first jazz musician to receive the GRAMMY® Award for Best New Artist. With the release of Radio Music Society, her most diverse, ambitious and masterful recital yet. Each of the 12 songs are accompanied by conceptual music videos, which further express Esperanza’s inspiration and story behind each track. Shot in various locations including New York City; Barcelona, Spain; and Portland, Oregon.

 Radio Music Society is a celebration of the men and women who have helped cultivate Spalding’s talent, as well as those who have nurtured her vision and inspired her along the way. “I’ve had the honor and blessing of working with so many phenomenal jazz musicians over the years,” she says. “As I’ve gotten to know them and their music, I’ve grown to love them as family and colleagues. I wished for an opportunity for us all to interpret songs together, so that they can be heard and received by a larger audience. That music is realized by many of the brilliant musicians who are part of Spalding’s ever-expanding universe. In addition to longtime partners Lovano, keyboard player Leo Genovese and drummer Terri Lyne Carrington, the ranks contain jazz legends Jack DeJohnette and Billy Hart; guitar heroes Jef Lee Johnson and Lionel Loueke; an array of master vocalists including Algebra Blessett, Lalah Hathaway, Gretchen Parlato, Leni Stern and Becca Stevens; hip-hop giant Q-Tip (who performs on and co-produced two tracks); and two Portland-based musicians, Janice Scroggins and Dr. Thara Memory, who provided essential mentorship in Spalding’s youth.

Enrico Pieranunzi – Permutation

null

If it were not for the unmistakable sound of Enrico Pieranunzi’s piano playing it would be hard to determine, when first hearing it, that “Permutation” is the new album by the Roman pianist. As reveals the title of this CAM Jazz release, it’s an album of great changes and transformations, because Enrico Pieranunzi – unlike many musicians in the world – has a unique gift: his ability to listen to his partners and truly converse with them. Some would call this pure interplay.

Nine songs written by the hand of Enrico Pieranunzi and recorded in the famous Bauer Studios of Germany which, on the one hand, reveal a different facet of the pianist but, on the other hand, enhance his talent as a composer and improviser: the qualities that have made Pieranunzi one of the most respected personalities in the world of jazz today.

The Unity Sextet – The Unity Sextet

null

Buddy Franco, Fats Young Jr., Cassius Farqhuar, Junior Oliver, Chuck Waldron and ‘Fat Thumbs’ Ronnie met in spring of 2011 whilst playing at different jazz festivals in different bands with different genres ranging from traditional to experimental jazz. Buddy Franco had an idea: being friends with renowned producer and Freestyle Records recording artist Lack of Afro, he asked him whether he would be up for an impromptu, spontaneous session and act as producer, arranger and engineer.

Said and done: The Unity Sextet was formed a couple of weeks later, setting up shop in the former warehouse (now recording studio) known as The Playhouse. They lived and worked there through to the end of the summer before moving to Lack of Afro’s studio in a former factory just down the road near Exeter. The result of the session is simply called „The Unity Sextet“ and features thirteen original tracks.

Jameszoo – Guanyn Psittacines

null

Jameszoo is a 20 year old Dutch producer named Mitchel van Dinther. This 10” called ‘’Guanyin Psittacines’’ serves as an introduction to that album. It contains 4 instrumentals of which the inspiration was drawn from the like of Hermeto Pascaol, documentaries on nature and his parrot Roberto. The recordings float somewhere in the realm between spiritual Jazz and modern Electronic music. Special additions to this E.P. come from the 2 pianists Wiboud Burkens and Gideon van Gelder, both known for their releases on Kindred Spirits. ‘Guanyin Psittacines’ is Jameszoo’s first E.P. and sure to be not the last one. It serves as a perfect introduction of what’s coming up later this year: a full album featuring guest performances by long-time Brazilian heroes such as ‘Arthur Verocai’ and ‘Carlos Dafé’. Experience this perfect mixture between naturalistic sounds and contemporary experimental beat making !

Mo Kolours – EP2: Banana Wine

null

As the UK’s FACT Magazine remarked about EP1: Drum Talking, “The wonderful Mo Kolours laces his loping, hashed-out Madlib-meets-Theo Parrish beat confections with melodies from the folk music of his homeland”, and while those Mauritian influences still give Mo Kolours’ work an otherworldly feel, EP2: Banana Wine is more evocative of the his current home in South London than his debut release.

Opener Ridda Mountain sets the tone: a hypnotic blunted incantation which draws heavily on a love of dub. Twelve sees a loose hip-hop rhythm paired with Mo Kolours’ unique sound palette, turning something familiar into something altogether strange. His percussion skills come to the fore on the fast-paced Afro-Latin workout Mini Culcha as he seeks to explore what dance music can sound like in 2012. The witty Keep It Up roots Mo Kolours in the here and now, a tale of a life spent disturbing the neighbours, while the astonishing Banana Wine takes its cue from a Sega classic and sounds something like dubstep imagined on an African island in the 1970s. Talking Move and Temi offer two more chances to dance to a different drum before Beautiful Swimmers from Washington’s cult Future Times label rejig Mini Culcha into the kind of compelling leftfield house that they’ve made such a stir with.

Marcus Miller – Tutu Revisited

null

When i wrote the music for “Tutu” in early 1986, I had no idea that I’d be “revisiting” it more than twenty years later. When we recorded it with Miles, it was music for that time. Apartheid was still in place in South Afirca, cats were wearing jackets with shoulder pads and the osund of the drum machine dominated music. I took a look at that particular landscape and created a sound taht i thought blended the feeling of that time witht the sound of Miles. Although i played most of the instruments on the album, it was important that Miles’ horn was the centeripee. I tried to find melodies taht were worthy of his glorious sound. On Tour we replace some of the the super electro-sounding elements from the album, but the ssence of Miles’ cool still prevails. People seem to be felling it twenty-five years later and the musicians (most of whom were kids when the original album was released) are definitely feeling it. We challenged ourselves to see where we could take this music to make it refelect the world today. In such turbulent times there is plenty to felect on and we had an amazing time working it out!  (Marcus Miller)

Jaco Pastorius – Jaco Pastorius

null

With one album, this self-titled first release, bass phenomenon Jaco Pastorius was catapulted into the position of the greatest electric bass player that ever lived. Officially discovered by Blood, Sweat & Tears drummer Bobby Colomby, Jaco’s revolutionary use of the bass as a solo instrument made him one of the most compelling instrumentalists of the electric era. Indeed, this record marked a turning point in the history of music–from the period before Jaco Pastorius and the period since.

Personnel includes: Jaco Pastorius (bass); Sam Moore, Dave Prater (vocals); Wayne Shorter (soprano saxophone); David Sanborn (alto saxophone); Michael Brecker (tenor saxophone); Howard Johnson (baritone saxophone); Randy Brecker (trumpet); Peter Graves (bass trombone); Peter Gordon (French horn); Hubert Laws (piccolo); Max Pollikoff, Arnold Black (violin); Julian Barber, Al Brown (viola); Kermit Moore, Beverly Lauridsen (cello); Herbie Hancock (piano, Fender Rhodes piano, keyboards); Alex Darqui (Fender Rhodes piano); Homer Mensch (acoustic bass); Narada Michael Walden, Lenny White, Bobby Economou (drums); Othello Molineaux, Leroy Williams (steel drums); Don Alias (bongos, congas, bells, okonko y iya, afuche, percussion).
