GERMANY: Jilman Zilman, Simon Nabatov ‎– The Loft Recording(GLM 2018)

 Tilman Herpichböhm describes his new record “The Loft Recordings”. The album was named after the recording location, the Loft in Cologne. The not quite ordinary line-up consisting of drums (Tilman Herpichböhm), ​​piano, Fender Rhodes, synthesizer (Simon Nabatov), ​​alto saxophone (Julian Bossert), alto saxophone (Johannes Ludwig) and double bass (Peter Christof) is appearing especially good in this unfolding free space. There, the alto saxophones can meet sonically, in order to completely alienate themselves again in the next moment – they are the figurehead of the band. Simon Nabatov is new to the crew, after joint concerts Tilman Herpichböhm wrote the pieces especially for him, making him part of Jilman Zilman. He brings a breath of fresh air to the band – together new and playful compositional and improvisational possibilities are explored. .GLM

Recorded live at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola in NYC, this exciting new reimagining is West Side Story like you’ve never heard it before as performed by the amazing multi-Grammy nominated 21 piece Bobby Sanabria Multiverse Big Band. This set includes an accompanying 16 page booklet containing rare photographs of Maestro Leonard Bernstein, along with the timeless music of West Side Story featuring the rhythms of various Latin American countries with exciting breaking-down-the-wall instrumental big band arrangements all done through the lens of the Latin jazz continuum.

It’s the most ambitious reimagining of the music I have ever heard!”
- Jamie Bernstein

Partial proceeds from this special commemorative set will be donated to the Jazz Foundation of America's Puerto Rico Relief Fund. The island has been completely devastated by hurricanes Irma and Maria and the government’s response has been less than adequate. What better way to help my ancestral homeland Puerto Rico and its people, than through the music of West Side Story Reimagined. - Bobby Sanabria

USA:Rob Brown Trio- Breath Rhyme(2018)

Rob Brown Trio | Breath Rhyme
"Breath Rhyme establishes a high level of creativity right from the first few minutes of Firewalk and maintains it for over an hour. This is one of the best trio record I've heard in some time. It makes a strong case for Brown's place amongst today's better alto improvisers and is another unqualified winner for Silkheart. His Breath Rhyme is an artistic triumph."
Carl Baugher, Cadence, May 1991

Rob Brown alto saxophone
William Parker bass
Dennis Charles drums

Watching this trio in the studio was fascinating. For a fledgling leader, Rob Brown was almost eerily calm. (Technically this is his second album, but his first – Sonic Explorations, co-led with pianist Matt Shipp, for Cadence Jazz – had been privately recorded and then sold. So this was his first real studio date.) Brown quietly went over cues and solo orders with his rhythm section, and proceeded methodically from one composition to the next without pausing for many playbacks. He was undistracted by the trickle of kibitzers and fellow musicians (like tenorist Frank Lowe) who stopped by to check him out. But when Brown took up his alto and hollered on his horn – he'd lean back, bending his knees and rising on his toes, like a basket player at the foul line – another side of him poured forth. It's as if there's a part of him down deep only music can touch.
