  • Benny Rubin Jr. “Know” from Know, Say, or See (Self Released)
  • Benny Rubin, Jr, a talented tenor and alto-saxophonist, made a strong impression with his debut release What’s Next. His second set as a leader, Know Say Or See, covers a lot of ground and features the saxophonist at his best at the head of a talented young quartet comprised of pianist Lex Korten, bassist Adam Olszewski and drummer JK Kim. The group performs six of Rubin’s originals plus fresh versions of two standards.
  • Ivo Perelman Trio “Garden of Jewels” from Garden of Jewels (Tao Forms)
  • saxophonist Ivo Perelman, pianist Matthew Shipp, and drummer Whit Dickey
  • recorded in June 2020 as the coronavirus pandemic raged across the globe. On the day that these three longtime collaborators warily (and safely) entered the studio for the first time since the virus forced us all indoors, the un-precedented circumstances provided the trio a profoundly urgent source of inspiration. At the same time, the country was in the midst of a series of turbulent protests that added an additional layer of vitality to the proceedings.
  • Vanessa Tagliabue Yorke “Indonesiana” from Diverso Lontano Incomprensibile (Artesuono)
  • Diverso Lontano Incomprensibile which can be translated as “Different, distant and incomprehensible” is the latest album by Vanessa Tagliabue Yorke, which was released on September 4th 2020 by Artesuono. In this album Vanessa has tried in every way to evade traditional ideas of harmony, drawing inspiration from Eastern and Middle Eastern music, from French music of the twentieth century and free jazz. The different languages in which she sings across the album, with their own diversified idioms, allow for an atypical rhythmic and melodic approach, with accents and intentions different from the traditional approach to jazz vocals .
  • A more strictly jazz ensemble composed of Francesco Bearzatti on clarinet, Paolo Birro on piano, Enrico Terragnoli on electric guitar, banjo and podophone, Salvatore Maiore on cello and double bass, Giovanni Maier on double bass and Michele Rabbia on drums is complimented by musicians with a classical background including Laura Masotto on violin, Stefano Menato on second clarinet and Cmelody sax, Eva Impellizzeri on viola and Leonardo Sapere on cello.
