"Jazz in 2018 (New and Anticipated Releases) "


  

          

This post worked out really well last year and is bookmarkable in terms of the amount of recommendations people gave. I'm still getting to records in that post. Let's do it again. I'll start off by asking what is anyone anticipating for this year - announced releases that you are looking forward to? Or maybe something dope has already came out.

Right now I'm looking forward to:

Mary Halvorson's Code Girl
Shabaka Hutchings - Sons of Kemet
Thumbscrew (announced that they would be releasing an album of covers and an album of originals)

1. "Question"
In response to Reply # 0


          

Can we do local (Jazzish) artists as well? I'm in South Florida and there's this band called Shenzi from the U that's really really really good. They've been performing around town and most recently they performed at (Aja and Umi's) Smoke Signals (http://www.thefader.com/2016/01/28/aja-monet-smoke-signals-interview) Our Basel concert. Where Eryn Allen Kane performed (Shenzi played behind her) Samaora Pinderhughes performed (he's working w/ Glasper and Terrace on Herbie's new project) Jesse Boykins performed and Talib was a surprise special guest (My brother James Klynn and his outfit Royal Court opened for Talib). Well here is a track Shenzi put out last year and their project will be coming out this year.
https://shenzimusic.bandcamp.com/
And last year Yasiin was a surprise guest at Smoke Signals Our Basel concert that was filmed by Boiler Room (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xyaHSGQGgwA)

In response to Reply # 0


          

Been looking forward to this since I saw The Glasper Expermient w/ Yasiin @ the Blue Note in NYC in ‘09. And The Experiment hasn’t sounded as good since Chris left. Dude is definitely unmatched on the drums and he has a really nice band around him. All three leaks are pretty dope too. Track list and guests looks crazy! Anderson .Paak is on two tracks, so is SiR. Really interested in these tracks w/ Bilal and Shafiq.

while the record is solid, I don't really find myself coming back to it as often as I would if it were not a Glasper-ish compilation. Then again I find myself more interested in jazz(y) stuff with more improv these days.

3. "Soulive is due in February..."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I'd say Soulive are my favourite band ever but I can't honestly say I know what a Soulive album sounds like in 2018. It's been so long since their last release: Krasno productions are really bluesy now and Alan Evans is all funk. I'm excited about how they've all evolved but I'd like to see them go a bit more towards their Blue Note years ('Doin Something' and 'Next'). Still very excited though!

Save room for this one, out in two weeks. The new record from trombonist Ryan Porter (a member of the West Coast Get Down with Kamasi): https://worldgalaxyrecords.bandcamp.com/album/the-optimist

This is a nice peek into the explosive UK Jazz scene right now.

That Kokoroko track is pure magic in any genre

https://quinkirchner.bandcamp.com/album/the-other-side-of-time

really dope stuff, definitely influenced by people like Sun Ra and Mingus who he covers on a few tracks here. Favorite track is probably "Brainville" or "Wondrous Eyes"

18. "Incredible looking doc series - Jazz Cosmopolitanism in Accra"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

http://der.org/community/new-releases/new-releases-february-2018

http://www.der.org/films/jazz-cosmopolitanism-in-accra.html

Five one-hour video collaborative documentaries (two with additional shorts) reveal Accra's resonances with jazz histories, styles, and performance practices ranging from New Orleans to bebop and the avant-garde, featuring famed percussionist Guy Warren/Ghanaba, multi-instrumentalist, afrifone inventor, and sound sculptor Nii Noi Nortey, percussionist and guitarist Nii Otoo Annan, the horn honking La Drivers Union Por Por Group, and master puppeteer J.C. Abbey. The Jazz Cosmopolitanism in Accra films series, alone or joined by the companion book and CD series of the same title, convey a sense of diasporic intimacy and musical cosmopolitanism in Ghana.

Films in the Jazz Cosmopolitanism in Accra series:
Hallelujah! (60 min, 2009)
Accra Trane Station: The Music and Art of Nii Noi Nortey (60 min, 2009)
Includes the short film From Accra to Santa Fe (18 min, 2009)
A Por Por Funeral for Ashirifie (60 min, 2009)
The Story of Por-Por (60 min, 2013)
Includes the short film M.V. Labadi (20 min, 2013)
J.C. Abbey, Ghana's Puppeteer (55 min, 2016)

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I'd recommend ya'll to check this one out even if you didn't like her previous stuff, the inclusion of a vocalist and Mary showing more of her rock/folk influences in some of the compositions here make it pretty different from her previous records. This track is insane - https://maryhalvorson.bandcamp.com/track/the-unexpected-natural-phenomenon

This is such a fun record. Even though it is mainly groove based, meaning that there is a bit less room for improvisation, Shabaka Hutching still finds room for some dope improvisation and generally I found it hard to sit still during this one. I'd really like to see this band live: https://youtu.be/twjaSC5Ym9s

i've been pushing it - and the sons of kemet - on everyone. i even got miles mosley to download it after kamasi washington's recent show here!

but, yeah, the musicianship on the toshio record is stellar. the covers are sublimely chosen and the one original is a fiercely funky jam.

Would've liked maybe one more vocal track - Jose James would've been perfect but I'm being picky. Still holding strong amongst the year's releases for me.

26. "New 2CD/4LP Kamasi Washington - Heaven and Earth (out June 22)"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Same usual suspects on personnel. Should be dope.

https://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/kamasi-washington-previews-heaven-and-earth-with-new-songs-w518939

Jazz saxophonist Kamasi Washington unveiled two new songs, "Fists of Fury" and "The Space Travelers Lullaby," from his forthcoming double-LP, Heaven and Earth, out June 22nd via Young Turks.

"The Space Travelers Lullaby" and "Fists of Fury" – which is a new arrangement of the theme song from the classic kung-fu movie of the same name – open the album's Heaven and Earth discs, respectively. Washington also shared minute-long videos for each song. The clips are from director Jenn Nkiru's forthcoming film project to accompany Heaven and Earth, expected to arrive later this year.

"...Washington recorded Heaven and Earth with his band, the Next Step, as well as members of the Los Angeles collective known as the West Coast Get Down. The project's contributors include Thundercat, Terrace Martin, Ronald Bruner, Jr., Cameron Graves, Brandon Coleman, Miles Mosley, Patrice Quinn and Tony Austin. Along with Washington's take on the Fists of Fury theme, Heaven and Earth will also feature his new arrangement of Freddie Hubbard's "Hubtones" and a new song by bandmate Ryan Porter."

In response to Reply # 26


  

          

I was a bit disappointed with the lack in progression of his sound/writing. I didn't like Harmony of Difference because I felt the band (outside of Truth, which was awesome) was a bit too constrained in those short songs, so I was really looking forward to this record (despite me taking forever to check it out).

The new album from London saxophonist Sean Khan is now out on Far Out Recordings which looks excellent. His last album 'Muriel' a few years ago is soooo good too!

33. "The Return - Kamaal Williams (from Yussef Kamaal)"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

https://kamaalwilliams.bandcamp.com/album/the-return

Shortly after Yussef Kamaal dropped Black Focus (a must listen if y'all haven't copped), the band broke up. One half of the London band just dropped his next project, and it appears it picks up where Black Focus left off. I still need to go through it but it sounds on point so far.

In response to Reply # 33


  

          

Am I the only one who liked this but thought it really missed Yussef's drumming. I just can't avoid it due to the styles of the two albums being similar lol. This is good, but the dynamic between them both was out of this world on black focus, it's a shame they broke up.

You know I never looked at it like that. To me it was a solid project just like Yussef will have a dope project (hopefully with Alfa Mist). You wish that Kamaal and Yussef would’ve stayed together, but what can you do?

Brilliant new album from Conte and his supergroup of musicians. Benching the bossa for this release and embracing spiritual jazz for a lush selection of tunes. Zara McFarlane appears on a track as well.

52. "RE: Jazz in 2018 (New and Anticipated Releases) "
In response to Reply # 0


          

I know we're all digging on that new Kamasi right now, but just a suggestion to take some time and check out Charles Lloyd and the Marvels' new record w/Lucinda Williams, "Vanished Gardens" ...

(in fact, though Lloyd's general vision and aesthetic is rather different from Kamasi's, his actual style of playing shares more than a few similarities...)

Fair warning though: the first half of the album is pretty dark and soul-crushing, particularly the tunes w/Lucinda singing.

On that: Lucinda, Lucinda, maybe this is your time to take center stage in my listening life? I've always liked Lucinda, never *loved* her (though loved many of her tunes and admired both her voice and lyricism), often thought I just needed to spend more time with her and really dig in. This album doubles down on that: her voice on "Dust" is just... so rich with age and time and experience and all things that make music a force of cosmological scope and power. (It comes from Williams' most recent album, itself no small thing to be reckoned with.)
And could you come up with a more perfect match than Frissell's steel guitar and Lucinda's natural folkish cadence...

We don't talk enough about Lloyd around here --- that's a shame. He's on a roll right now at the end of a career that has been nothing but one long roll (from what I know of it, which is quite little in relation to his productivity): he's got a kickass band, kickass guests, and an impeccable sense of how to bring the many genre currents of American music together into something surprisingly organic and seamless.

Since ECM's stuff is available on streaming now, maybe time to visit that part of his catalog for a bit...

I listened to this last weekend and it was a decent listen. To me the vocals kinda took away from the project.

Have you checked out these two releases?

Joshua Redman - Still Dreaming

Binker & Moses - Alive in the East

thank you, man... glad you dig it, that's pretty exactly what i heard in it too
a nice blend of the brass traditionalism with just enough of the beat generation timing / edge to it

we're working on remixes for it now, should be fun

Put me in the mind frame of In the Moment. Nevertheless it is definitely a good listen and worth the purchase.

Released a few months ago through Brownswood - another name in the long list of emerging UK jazz talent with the usual names involved (Nubya, Moses). Really good!

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Not really a jazz record but it's from the bassist from Kneebody plus it's from Ropeadope Records which is another great reason to check it out. Chris Dave drums on like 4/5 tracks and Becca Stevens appears too.

Outside of Kneebody, Rastegar has played and produced for De La (Anonymous), Meshell, Ledisi, Cee Lo, ANthony Hamilton, Beck. Hell of a resume.

92. "Yeah it’s not too bad!!!!"
In response to Reply # 90


          

Went through it a few times. It should be good rotation music for the rest of the year... can’t wait for that Maisha to drop.

Also if you get a chance try and check out that reissue from Takeo Moriyama called East Plants. If I can find a link I will post it.

It's basically avant-garde jazz that you can bob your head to - the drums are so tight throughout and the horns can be extremely wild/harsh. Love it.

There are other records that I’m waiting for i.e. Maisha, Makaya, Keith Jarrett (live solo), and I am getting that 1000 Kings. I spent a ton of money getting my Sun Ra collection complete. So Sonic Creed is going to have to be put on hold.

Sam Gendel, the saxophonist really steals the show. Kind of a stripped down spiritual jazz with some ambient production. Love this album.

Hey the music on this album is top notch. The emceeing though... not so much.

Planning on giving it a few more listens to see if the rappin’ grows on me.

Great post though

You might find the emceeing to be on par with the music (which is phenomenal btw).

Just gave it another listen, and I really love the music. It one of those albums where I would suffer though the bad rappin.

Went and checked out their other album as well. Very cosmic in their approach. They blend very well together. I would like to see them get more out there in the future. Their live recording that they just released is great as well.

In response to Reply # 138


          

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves!!!!

The Makaya is dope, but better than Kamasi?

That’s tough!!!!!!

But in reality there are a couple of records that I put ahead of those two for right now. Things could change by the end of the year with the Maisha release.

I get it... Makaya’s sound is a more raw than Kamasi. For me H & E flows better.

My tops so far that I prefer over those two are Earth (Emanative) and La Fenice (Keith Jarrett) with Kudu (Antelopes) not too far behind. I also like Origami Harvest (Ambrose Akinmusire) a ton as well.

It is still a couple of more sure fire releases left. Can’t wait to see everyone’s top pucks of the year. There have been a ton of great releases and reissues.

it's been overwhelming!

Origami Harvest is something special, for sure.

Listening to the Emanative album now. Definitely quality!

Yes it’s too much music out!!! So many releases to take in.

That Anteloper is nice to... Jaimie Branch and Jason Nazary did a great job with the electronic fusion on this.

Still digesting it all but god Tomeka Reid sounds amazing on "Tall Tales". McCraven is really fucking good at chopping these performances up. Really great rhythms here. It's one of those albums that works great as background music AND for concentrated listening.

They should’ve done more songs. They put more into their Dilla project than this one.

With the year closing there isn’t a new release left to wait on. Just about everything left that will be released are reissues.

What are your best or favorite albums of the year? There was a gang of good records that were released this year. Both new issues and reissues alike.

My initial jazz picks are:

'LOVEPLAYDANCE' by Toshio Matsuura Group
'Let Your Light Shine On' by Nicola Conte & Spiritual Galaxy
'Starting Today' by Joe Armon-Jones
'Palmeras Fantasy' by Sean Khan
'Life' by Vivian Sessoms

My Maisha CD hasn't arrived in the post yet and I imagine that will make the list.

164. "Top 10, in order"
In response to Reply # 160


  

          

order/list subject to change by the end of the year, of course. I'm also not counting stuff like the "new" Coltrane (reissues and newly unearthed old recordings).

Mary Halvorson - Code Girl
Binker & Moses - Alive In The East
Thumbscrew - Ours (their other record, Theirs, which is all covers, is also good but this one, which is all originals is much more creative and free)
Jonathan Finlayson - 3 Times Round
Cecile McLorin Salvant - The Window
Jason Palmer - At Wally's Vol. 2 (Vol. 1 is also basically just as good)
Makaya McCraven - Universal Beings
Noah Preminger - Genuinity
Anteloper -Kudu
Quin Kirchner -The Other Side of Time
