  • Cliff Korman Trio “Gaudaloupe” from Brasilified (Tiger Turn) – Throughout his career, Cliff Korman has always loved and been inspired by Brazilian music and modern jazz. At the same time, the pianist has consistently resisted the temptation to play in a predictable fashion, instead stretching out and coming up with fresh interpretations. Brasilified features Korman, along with bassist Augusto Mattoso and drummer Rafael Barata, really digging into a set of rich compositions in surprising ways. Paulo Levi joins the trio on Alto Saxophone for Wayne Shorters “Speak No Evil” which is featured later in the show.
  • Ernesto Jodoas “Creo, Miente, Nunca” from Dónde el mundo ocurre (ears&eyes). Jodos has been an important influencer and has guided what Argentine jazz is today. This new album is a grand culmination of his vision. The group on the album comprises a mix of young lions as well as one of the most influential and important voices in not only jazz, but also rock, Latin Grammy Award winner & drummer Sergio Verdinelli, plus Inti Sabev (clarinets), Juan Pablo Hernández (guitar) & Diana Arias (contrabass).
  • Matias Formica, Rocío Giménez López, Matthew Golombisky “forty nine” from 4.9 (ears&eyes) – Golombisky says “A friend and previously recorded ears&eyes artist, Matias Formica, invited me to record for a project of his which was released as Hastío y Paranoia on the Neue Numeral Label (which I featured on World of Jazz 469). He also invited the talented and highly creative pianist, Rocío Giménez López, I had never met her, but the chemistry was immediate, and felt like we already had deep history. Though Matias only needed a couple of takes for his project, what was leftover was three hours of recorded music. Of course, in my mind, I went to “we have to release an album of our own, proper, on ears&eyes.”
  • Xiomara Torres “Filomena” from La Voz Del Mar (Patois) Released by Patois Records on July 15, 2022, La Voz del Mar introduces the stunning singer Xiomara Torres (pronounced See-o-mar-a), who hails from one of the Columbia region’s most illustrious musical families. Spearheaded by San Francisco vibraphonist Dan Neville, a deeply skilled jazz musician who has spent years studying with master musicians in Cuba and Colombia, the album was created in tribute to the recently departed maestro Diego Obregón, Xiomara’s uncle, a revered marimba player, instrument builder and repository of música del Pacífico.
  • Julia Hülsmann Quartet “Fluid” from The Next Door (ECM) – The follow-up to 2019’s Not Far From Here sees Julia Hülsmann reconvening with the same line-up as last time, in Studios La Buissonne, and entering into intense interplay with a band that has been extensively worked-in on the road. The Guardian called the quartet’s debut “a standout, for understated reinvention of the familiar and cool virtuosity” and spoke of “clever, thoughtful, inquisitively contemporary jazzmaking”. These virtues have been further refined and new idioms added to the blend on the quartet’s second stance, with each member – tenor saxophonist Uli Kempendorff, Heinrich Köbberling on drums, Marc Muellbauer on bass and Julia – contributing original material to The Next Door.
  • Shawn Lovato “Modular Ascension (for alto saxophone)” from Microcosms (ears&eyes) – Lovato composed the suite with each improviser’s unique perspective in mind, giving them freedom to express their individual artistic voices as they engage with and directly develop the composition to realize a unified vision. The work is a balancing act of sharp composition and multi-faceted improvisation, with transitions that blur the two. Shawn Lovato – bass/composition, Patti Kilroy – violin, Michaël Attias – alto sax, Hannis Brown – guitar, Santiago Leibson – piano, Vinnie Sperrazza – drums, Colin Hinton – percussion
  • Jessica Pavone, Lukas Koenig, Matt Mottel “Spam Likely” from Spam Likely (577 Records) – Made up of Jessica Pavone (Viola, electronics), Lukas Koenig (Drums), and Matt Mottel (Keytar, 3-string Guitar), all three players are drawn to the improvisational, experimental nature of their self-described, “free-range sonic stew,” a constellation of instruments served up for hungry ears. Their first performance together in 2019 was marked by the tragic, unexpected death of Steve Dalachinsky, a poet and artist well-known in their shared community, who had passed the day before. The night was full of cathartic music—and since then, their sound has been influenced by kindred spirits, merging images, and resonant emotions. Throughout the two wryly-named, extended tracks, Mottel lays thick keyboard and keytar riffs, while Pavone and Koenig contribute interlaced tremolos and sharp sopranos. The album’s title, Spam Likely, plays on the increasing number of spam calls everyone’s receiving these days, asking the obvious question: what happens if you pick up? Spam Likely will be available in CD and digital editions in September 2022.
