NOTES
Ivo Perelman and Roscoe Mitchell “One” from Reed Rapture In Brooklyn
Roscoe Mitchell “Spatial Aspects Of The Sound” from Bells for the South Side

double album recorded live in 2015 at Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago in the context of “The Freedom Principle”, a 50th-anniversary exhibition devoted to the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, and released on ECM.
Lionel Beuvens “49 Steps” from 49 Steps To Heaven
After years of touring and recording as a sideman, that saw him play on forty records, and also
release two of his own very contemporary sounding albums,”Trinité” and “Earthsong”, drummer Lionel Beuvens presents this ambitious new project via the Hypnote Records label. Reuniting the
talented Alexi Tuomarila (piano), Brice Soniano (double bass) and Kalevi Louhivuori (trumpet),
joined at times by Ewout Pierreux (rhodes) and Franck Vaganee (alto saxophone). This offering confirms the richness of his repertoire, nourished by jazz as well as classical and latin music.
George Colligan “Kiings Dream” from Kings Dream
The album’s title track and spiritual core is a modal anthem that brings to mind the late-1960s vibe of Gary Bartz. Inspired by the post-racial vision of Martin Luther King Jr., the composition is part celebration, part affirmation, and all heartfelt plea
Matt Booth & Palindromes “Howard Beach Memoirs” from Live Mash For Now
featuring Matt Booth: bass , Brad Walker: tenor and alto saxophones , Chris Alford: guitar , Doug Garrison: drums. The third release from New Orleans-based quartet Matt Booth & Palindromes. A continued presence in the Crescent City’s creative improvised music scene, the band presents original music that offers a fresh counterpoint to what is generally acknowledged there as “New Orleans music”. This album is a collage of three different live performances dating to 2019, weaving together an assortment of original songs, group improvisations, and including three covers from touchstone inspirations (Paul Motian, Ornette Coleman, Melvin Gibbs).
Mathieu Soucy “Lennie’s Changes” from Recollecting
Mathieu Soucy is an up-and-coming jazz guitarist with his own sound and fresh approach to playing straight ahead jazz. This is his debut album on Inner-Bop Records. Soucy is joined by pianist Gentiane MG, bassist Mike De Masi, and drummer Jacob Wutzke plus singer Caity Gyorgy (who has two guest vocals) on Recollecting for an invigorating set of new music that points the way towards swinging jazz of the future.
