Europe Jazz Media Chart, januari 2018

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.

Bobo Stenson Trio: Contra La Indecisión (ECM)

Bobo Stenson has long been a key person in the European jazz scene through his long-standing commitment with ECM Records since the first year of the label with his clear-edged lyrical piano playing.
He has been international successful with his longlived own trio, since 2007 with swedish bandmates drummer Jon Fält and bassplayer Anders Jormin.
On the first trio disk since 2012:s Indicum, the trio continuous with it´s characteristic deep poetical, lyrical, sophisticated vocabulary with clear features of chamber, folkmusic and jazz.
The sound is characteristic but the music still offers a strong organic, rhythmic and very dynamic feeling.

Dmitry Ilugdin Trio: Reflection (ArtBeat Music)

This is the second album recorded by Moscow-based pianist Dmitry  Ilugdin as a leader, an honest jazz acoustic piano trio record with  fiery drumming (Peter Ivshin) and rock-solid acoustic bass (Viktor  Shestak,) but also with a twist of Russian classical music sensuality, European power jazz rhythmic ambivalence, and several very nice melodies to add to the pot.
