FINLAND: Joonas Haavisto Trio - Gradation (2018)

Joonas Haavisto - Gradation”Joonas Haavisto is one of the most talented pianists of his generation.” - Der Spiegel (November 2016) ”Joonas Haavisto Trio is one of the best piano trios in Europe.” - Sounds & Books (November 2016) ”Latest masterpiece from the fast rising Nordic Star.” — Jazz Critiques Magazine (March 2016) ”This trio´s real thrill lies in its unique balance and those breathtaking moments in their nuanced playing.” — Toshiaki Uemura, CD Journal (February 2016) ”Every tune sounds excellent!” — Takashi Kubota, Jazz Japan (February 2016) ”Pianotrion taikaa korkeimmalla tasolla. Myös levyn nimi oku on japania. "Sisäinen tila" on siinä ilmaistu vain kolmella kirjaimella. Ja kun kolme mestarillista muusikkoa löytää yhteisen okun, siinä sitä ihastelemista riittääkin.” — Pentti Ronkainen, Keskisuomalainen/Savon Sanomat 5/5 ”Hämmentävän jäntevältä kuulostava kokonaisuus pulppuilee tavalla, joka imaisee vastaanottajan mukaansa. Harmonisessa ympäristössä täyteläinen bassottelu, soljuvat pianovaeltelut sekä irtonainen rytmitys poikivat hurmaavan euforian.” — Juha Seitz, Ilkka/Pohjalainen 5/5 ”Haavistos pianospel känns exklusivt. Hans stycken bjuder på en bred palett av stämningar och stilar utan att splittra helheten, som stöttas av den mångårige trions utmärkta samspel.” — Jan-Erik Holmberg, HBL ”Hiljaisuus ja tilantuntu kasvoivat sen myötä osaksi yhtyeen ulosantia – herkkyys kuunnella kanssasoittajia toi lisäarvoa lähestymistapaan. Upea esitys!” — Matti Komulainen, Turun Sanomat

USA: John Moulder - Decade: Memoirs (Origin Records 2018)


Decade: Memoirs

Exceptional performances and an indelible musical chemistry mark this exciting, breathtaking and intimately personal work by Chicago guitarist/composer John Moulder. With longtime rhythm section mates, bassist Steve Rodby and drummer Paul Wertico, they're joined by two towering British artists - pianist Gwilym Simcock and saxophonist Tim Garland. Recently inspired by meaningful events and cherished individuals in his life, Moulder penned seven new compositions for this highly intuitive band to explore.
'One of the most adventurous, technically accomplished and ferociously committed guitar virtuosos working today. ' --- Chicago Tribune

'Moulder has a distinct and exciting approach that ensures that his albums sound like nothing else out there. ' --- All About Jazz

FRANCE: Claude Nougaro ‎– Nougaro Jazz(2018)

"Dès 1956, Claude Nougaro et moi avons commencé à écrire des chansons ensemble. Malgré sa jeune expérience, il possédait une syntaxe d'une stupéfiante maturité : rugueuse, incisive, très rythmique, avec une vaste connaissance du langage, un goût aussi pour les onomatopées. Nougaro, c'était moins un auteur qu'un acrobate du verbe, un jongleur de mots. Avec lui, les épousailles de la langue française avec le blues, le swing, le bop semblaient naturelles. C'est moi qui ai convaincu Jacques Canetti, éminence grise du label Philips, de me laisser enregistrer le premier 25cm vocal de Claude sur ce label, avec notamment Le Cinéma, Les Don Juan ou Le Jazz Et La Java. Je suis fier d'avoir contribué à métamorphoser un poète connu des seuls habitués du Lapin Agile en chanteur à succès. Je n'oublierai jamais la formule fétiche de Claude : "Toi et moi, nous suivons la même voie : chanter juste, juste chanter". Michel Legrand

USA: Keith Oxman -Glimpses (Capri 2018)


Glimpses

Keith Oxman joins forces with legendary saxophonist David Liebman for his latest release, Glimpses. The title track was composed by Liebman who plays soprano and tenor saxophones on the recording. They are backed by Keith's regular trio of Jeff Jenkins, Ken Walker and Todd Reid who are featured on previous recordings and perform with him regularly. Highlights include a duo between pianist Jenkins and Liebman on Ellington's In a Sentimental Mood, Oxman and Liebman's interactions on Cedar Walton's Afreaka and Oxman's feature with the trio, the rarely heard I Sold My Heart to the Junkman. Four of Keith's originals make up the remainder of the session.
