"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)

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!

Trance-y electronica influenced jazz. Insanely good shit on this release, such as these two:

“Strid”

“Transient State”:

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

It's *really* good.

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

Walter Smith is a great sax player and this is a great straight ahead release.

There is a lot I really like here, but "Ask Me Now" and "The Peacocks" are fantastic imo
