Keith Jarrett

Bordeaux Concert documents a solo perforamce, the last that Keith Jarrett would give in France, at the Auditorium de l’Opéra National de Bordeaux on July 6, 2016, and finds the pianist at a creative high point.

Natsuki Tamura

Iyaho out August 5 via Bandcamp, features Tamura in the unaccompanied solo format for the sixth time in his career. This time, however, he adds a few new twists, focusing on his enigmatic vocalizing and recent interest in home-made percussion as well as his lyrical trumpet playing. Recording at his home studio, Tamura also overdubs voice, percussion, and trumpet into performances that are truly beyond category. “I never think about whether it is jazz or not,” Tamura says. “I just express the music that comes out of me.”

5 Trumpets out October 7th via Bandcamp, Tamura takes brass music to the edge with a trumpet quintet featuring some of the most creative brass players in Japan. p. Rabito Arimoto, from
Osaka, is a current member of the Satoko Fujii Orchestra Kobe. Nobuki Yamamoto, who also plays slide trumpet on the album is a former member of Orchestra Kobe. Kobe resident Ari Morimoto is also active on the city’s music scene and operates a recording studio. Masafumi Ezaki is an extended technique virtuoso widely known in the quiet world of lowercase improvisation. “

Doug Stone & Marcelo Magalhães Pinto

The recording project was conceived by Marcelo and Doug to be a musical register where the
two genres of contemporary music – Jazz, and Brazilian Music – could share the same space.
Thus, the pieces that were written exclusively for this project have distinct features of the
national genres of the composers.

Doug Stone, for instance, wrote tunes that embrace Bebop, Swing, Free Jazz, Modal Jazz, and
Soul. On the other hand, Marcelo Magalhães Pinto wrote tunes that go through a variety of
Brazilian styles, such as the Congado, Choro, Baião, and Samba, among others. From the
musical perspective, the outcome is extremely interesting because even though the composers
had written pieces with genres that are particular to their own countries (Brazil and United
States), there are common elements that unified the compositions: the harmonic treatment and
the improvisation.

● Doug Stone – Soprano Saxophone
● Marcelo Magalhães Pinto – Piano (Marsello MargalHay-es Peento)
● Quinn Sternberg – Acoustic Bass
● André “Limão” Queiroz – Drums (Andrey Limow Kay Roz)

Harry Bartlett

Wildwood is an exciting new release by the Harry Bartlett Trio. Rooted in the jazz tradition, this album draws heavily on American Folk and Western styles. The trio’s unique, focused identity offers a fresh path through the infinite potential of improvised music.

The compositions on Wildwood were written and recorded on Gambier Island BC over a 6 month period. The rugged, isolated character of the BC coast permeates into the songs, lending qualities of reverence and peace. Through this process Harry was working closely with Toronto based guitarist and composer Geoff Young who lent his wide ranging experience and razor sharp focus as an artistic advisor.

The Harry Bartlett Trio features Harry Bartlett (guitars), Caleb Klager (bass and modular synthesizer), and Harry Vetro (drum set). The Trio began in 2018 with the release of a debut EP, The Harry Bartlett Trio, and has since performed extensively, appearing in major venues and festivals across Canada.

Enrico Rava & Fred Hersch

The Song Is You documents the inspired meeting of two master improvisers. Italian trumpeter and flugelhornist Enrico Rava and US pianist Fred Hersch share a love of the music’s history and together explore standards including Jerome Kern’s “The Song Is You”, Thelonious Monk’s “Mysterioso” and “’Round Midnight”, Jobim’s “Retrato em Branco e Preto”, and George Bassman’s “I’m Getting Sentimental Over You”. They also play their own tunes, Fred’s “Child’s Song” and Enrico’s “The Trial”, and create music freely together. It’s a subtle and far reaching performance: when jazz reaches this level of understanding and interplay, a performance becomes less about the material – however distinguished it may be – than what the interpreter brings to it. Rava and Hersch bring vast experience and a finely honed sense of jazz improvisation as a storyteller’s art.

Matias Formica

This project is a preamble to what the musicians hope will soon be the first recording of the
trio’s first album. The general idea was to have a well-recorded and filmed initial material to be
able to publicize their work.
