    Just got back from 9 days travel, this had been released on Bandcamp. Funky, big-band-ish, tightly woven, big drive. Even jetlagged, waiting for my espresso machine to heat up, I feel the motion. Allison Miller, Myra Melford, Jenny Scheinman, and more. A wake up call!

    And now for a completely different new release (ECM via ProStudioMasters). Spacey instead of earthy, more conceptual than playful.

    Adam Hopkins - Crickets

    This one has been on my wishlist since its release but I just didn’t have the time to buy and listen...until today.
    And this goes straight into my top list for the year, despite being released in October -18. Check it out, it’s not at all too far out there.

    Very pretty jazz. Always wanted to see Ravi play, never managed to. Can you imagine trying for a career playing jazz on the tenor sax--w/the last name, "Coltrane"? It's impossible. But he's done it--has played consistently at the highest level for 30+ years.

    Yes, he's really worth listening to live. I was lucky to hear this trio last year. From the stage, Ravi Coltrane and Matt Garrison (son of jazz bass great Jimmy Garrison) shared how Jack DeJohnette was their musical "uncle" in Chicago when they were teenagers. It was amazing to hear the three together, with DeJohnette in the superb form that he has shown in the last several gigs I've heard him at. They have a beautiful trio album "In Movement."

    Some recent listens, no mini-reviews, but (*) are the repeat listens:

    Shuffle Mode, Rosa Brunello/Los Fermentos
    Revisiting Grappelli, Mathias Lévy (*)
    Dancer in Nowhere, Miho Hazama m_unit
    Extended Circle, Tord Gustavsen Quartet
    Imaginary Friends, Ralph Alessi (*)
    Glitter Wolf, Allison Miller's Boom Tic Boom (*)
    Magdalena, María Grand

    Qobuz has arrived in the US and I've started to explore what I can get there, like Revisiting Grappelli.

    Something else, via Qobuz, really delightful in its lightness and blues inspiration, listen to the whole album!

    Another Qobuz-routed wonder. Matthew Shipp does not record much and was rumored to have retired, but no, he's just out with this amazing effort. Intense, many layers, hard to describe, but definitely more avalanche and rushing water than foot-tapping.

    Thanks for introducing this, I have been enjoying it immensely. There is a new album out today on bandcamp, which is even more delicate. Re eyes is stunning.
