  • On this weeks show new music from Marcus Klossek, Mary Halvorson, Bjorn Ingelstam, Emi Makebe, Javier Subatin, and Cyclone Trio but first the Marco Rottoli Trio….
  • HOUR ONE
  • Marco Rottoli Trio “Acacia” from New Years Eve (AMP Music and Records)
    • In his first release as a leader, bassist Rottoli features two of the most acknowledged italian young musicians: Simone Daclon on piano and Pasquale Fiore on drums. Years of collaboration and occasional have gigs slowly built up a tight and distinctive acoustic trio sound, characterized by a high degree of interplay. The record features five original tunes, two old songs from the early jazz repertoire and a fresh view on a Thelonious Monk classic.
  • Marcus Klossek Electric Trio “Like 4 Minutes Ago” from Time Was Now (DoubleMoon/Challenge Records)
    • MARCUS KLOSSEK -GIT, COMP W/ CARSTEN HEIN -BASS & DEREK SCHERZER -DRUMS
    • Marcus Klossek is one of the growing number of guitarists who perform Jazz on a Fender Telecaster, the archetype of the electric guitar. A class of musicians that consists of many extraordinary artists; from Jimmy Bryant to Ed Bickert, Bill Frisell, Mike Stern, Jim Campilongo or Jakob Bro, just to name a few. An established name within the Berlin jazz scene who knows how to get to the point with his Electric Trio. A guitar, bass and drums; that’s all it takes to make the songs of Marcus Klossek sound great! His brand new album „Time Was Now“, the 8th release as a bandleader and the first one for Double Moon/Challenge Records, is another proof of exceptional storytelling composing skills which go far beyond the average guitar release. Really good stories don’t need to be flashy and loud to lodge themselves firmly in our hearts.

    • Take a close look at the cover of Swedish trumpeter Björn Ingelstam’s self-titled debut album and you will notice a pair of glasses in the top right corner.

  • Emi Makabe “Joy” from Anniversary (Greenleaf)
    • Her debut album featuring her original songs – sung in English, Japanese and wordless vocalese – in airy, artful arrangements, with improvisation naturally part of the mix. The record features Emi on vocals and shamisen (a traditional Japanese string instrument) alongside a trio of New York jazz virtuosos: Vitor Gonçalves on piano/accordion, Thomas Morgan on bass, and Kenny Wollesen on drums/vibraphone.

    • Javier Subatin (guitar and composition – arrangements in ‘C Jam Blues’ by Duke Ellington)
    • Daniel Sousa (alto saxophone)
    • Diogo Alexandre, drums
    • “When listening to the Trance trio, we find completely improvised parts, complex written counterpoints, accented rhythms and textures resulting in a “fresh” project with an eclectic style that utilizes elements from Argentinian folk music, free improvisation, classical music and contemporary jazz. Trance is the last album by Javier Subatin that will be released by Ears&Eyes records
  • Marco Rottoli Trio “Snowball” from New Years Eve (AMP Music and Records)
  • Marcus Klossek Electric Trio “Unexpected Skies” from Time Was Now (DoubleMoon/Challenge Records)
  • Björn Ingelstam “Tiny Capers” from The Start of Something (Fiol Sessions)
  • Mary Halvorson’s Code Girl “Bigger Flames” from Artlessly Falling (Cuneiform Records)
    • also featuring Robert Wyatt
    • The second release by Halvorson’s Code Girl, following on from self-titled debut in 2018 (which was on Firehouse 12) It’s the usual thumbscrew team Halvorson, Fujiwara, and Formanek with vocalist Amirtha Kidambi and trumpet Adam O’Farrill instead of Ambrise Akinmusire on the first album , with the addition of tenor saxophonist Maria Grand, who also joins Kidambi occasionally on vocals. The three cameos by Robert Wyatt, after a recording hiatus begun in 2014 is itself noteworthy.
