Europe Jazz Media Chart, augusti 2017

Europas ledande jazztidskrifter och webbsidor som skriver om jazz har gått samman under namnet Europe Jazz Media (EJM). Målet är att arbeta objektivt med gemensamma mål för att uppmuntra och stärka intresset för jazz och sprida kunskap och medvetenhet om utvecklingen och mångfalden inom jazzen. Ett av de första initiativen är Europe Jazz Media Chart som uppdateras månadsvis. Listan är inte försäljningsrelaterad utan ställer samman uppgifter om vilka skivor de olika tidskrifterna och webbsidorna rekommenderar och tipsar om.

Henning Bolte, Jazzism
Marcelo Dos Reis & Eve Risser: Timeless (JACC Records)

This is musical sounds on the fringe mostly JUST HAPPENING. It is surprising how it finds open places for beautiful musical sound and how it opens to the music of the spheres and inside the listener.

Johan Jacobsson, OrkesterJournalen
Pat Thomas: The Elephant Clock Of Al Jazari (OTOroku)

Cim Meyer, Jazz Special
Olli Hirvonen: New Helsinki (Edition Records)

A personal approach to composing, arranging and new lines for the six strings – and a focused live band as well.

Lars Mossefinn, Dag og tid
Bergen Big Band & Dag Arnesen: Norwegian Song IV (Odin)

Dag Arnesen has released Norwegian Song I-III as trio recordings. Here we have some of the material arranged for bigband, and the lyricism from the trio recordings is well preserved. Bergen Big Band demonstrates once again why they are one of Norway’s leading bigbands.

Axel Stinshoff, Jazz thing
Roscoe Mitchell: Bells for the South Side (ECM)

Luca Vitali, Giornale della Musica
Luca Aquino: Aqustico Vol. 2 (Riverberi – Losen Records)

Paweł Brodowski, Jazz Forum
Adam Bałdych & Helgie Lien Trio: Brothers (ACT)

Following Bridges from 2015, this is the second outing on ACT of the Polish violin whiz and Norwegian piano trio, with a guest appearance by saxophonist Tore Brunborg. Dedicated by Adam Bałdych to his departed brother, the new recording – blending jazz, classical and folk music – is based on his original compositions, one exception being Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah. Polish lyricism, Norwegian melacholy, empathy and musicianship of highest order. To be released on CD and vinyl by the end of August.
