Image Joey.Monk.Live!
Till minne av Thelonious Monks 100-årsjubileum gav den unge pianisten Joey Alexander en konsert på Jazz at Lincoln Center sommaren 2017. Joeys trio med Scott Colley, bas, och Willie Jones III, trummor, utforskar Monks musik med stor upptäckarglädje och värme. Liveskivan rymmer såväl solo- som duo- och trioarrangemang, där Joey Alexander hyllar sin stora inspiratör och förebild, både som pianist och kompositör. Som lyssnare undrar man nästan om Thelonious har återfötts i denna lilla (endast 14 år), men ack så stora pianist.

Bassist Kyle Eastwood has an unbridled passion for jazz and the innate talent to share it. He is an artist that strives to reinvent the genre by not only respecting its masters, but also pushing the boundaries in search of a new tradition that looks ever forward. Following on the success of his first two Jazz Village releases, Eastwood's In Transit features songs by some of his favorite composers as well as original tunes by Eastwood and his band. Guest artists include saxophonist Stefano Di Battista. The mood of the album's ten tracks ranges from hard bop and rhythm 'n' blues to a decidedly contemporary sound. With its powerful rhythms and catchy melodies, Eastwood's In Transit is guaranteed to please.

You have to see Magma live on stage once in your life! For Magma, live performance is a must. On stage there is no room for
mistakes and no forgiveness. The musicians are laid bare and give their all, all at once. They are on a tight rope, with no
safety net and no turning back. Too late for second thoughts. The thinking done, body, hands and instinct speak out.
Spontaneity (the fruit of earlier thought), raw sound and savage energy make each of these live concerts a wonderful,
magical moment in time.
Köhnzert Zünd is a sumptuously presented collection of all the group's official live performances, recorded between 1975 and
2000. Two more CDs contain extracts from concerts between 2005 and 2011, and another two feature unpublished tracks
from an unforgettable concert given in 2009 at the Paris Alhambra.

180 gram DOUBLE VINYL LP WITH DOWNLOAD CODE Magma is joining up with Jazz Village to celebrate its 45th anniversary with an impressive series of new and classic titles scheduled for release between September 2014 to November 2015. A legendary French group if ever there was one, Magma has continued to influence the course of contemporary music since their debut in 1969. Combining the energy of rock and the ecstasy of jazz, as well as numerous classical influences from Béla Bartók to Carl Orff to the Viennese school, brick by brick Magma has built a unique musical monument that is destined to be a worldwide beacon, as long recognized by their large and devoted following. A long-box format promotional CD is available with details of the release programme and 14 tracks from the band's catalogue.

Image Merci (LP)
Released in 1985 and dedicated to John COLTRANE, MERCI is the last studio album by MAGMA to be released before Christian VANDER dedicated himself to his new group, OFFERING. Recorded between June 1982 and October 1984 at Studio Davout, with the help of a galaxy of musician friends, MERCI perfectly demonstrates the seamless transition from the electric music of MAGMA to the acoustic serenity of OFFERING. The album is, in effect, divided into two sections. The four opening titles present the MAGMA rhythm'n blues of the early 1980s, a cool, soul-wrapped unit full of melodic richness, and embellished with fabulous brass and vocal arrangements. The final two pieces by contrast are in a stripped-down, purified style which declares what the quest of OFFERING will be to touch the human being in the depths of his soul via a music which has been reduced to its essentials.

This vast selection of 1677 reference gives priority to American jazz, for European jazz, and even Asian and Latin American music of that period too, was badly distributed and more research is required as to the real origins of such recordings.
Hopefully others with more means and time at their disposal will undertake this very necessary work that will help to further our knowledge of music and its genres across the world.
Only a few examples from Scandinavia or France, two of the better known sources, are scattered across this compendium, so what remains to be covered to give them their rightful place in this story concerns the English, the Italians, the Belgians, the Germans and the countries of Eastern Europe.

Music is a multi-faceted universe and Ray Charles made a major contribution to changing its boundaries, bringing different kinds of material into play in order to express their full emotional impact. It takes a rare kind of energy and sensitivity to succeed in the tour de force of combining elements of jazz, blues and country music, trustingly and with no false pretenses, simply using your sense of soul. Ray provides a great example of this, having brought about several stylistic revolutions in the name of the blues, which, without his input, wouldn't have the same spacing, the same breath of life, or the same essential impulse. A one-of-a-kind character, Ray Charles can be compared to Louis Armstrong in many ways. Their extremely distinctive voices aside, Ray & Louis also share a totally liberated form of inspiration, an eclectic range of styles and a musical sensitivity which allows them to work in different musical styles, no matter how diverse. Remarkably, they always get the tone just right and fit in perfectly. They also share a tireless and thoroughly exploited love for live performances, an ever-present sense of humour and were extremely generous; all qualities they eagerly brought to bear in their stage work around the world. Tainted at first by tragedy and drama, the path Ray Charles took through life demonstrated his unwavering energy and determination. In spite of his success, he never forgot where he came from not who he was. This shy and discreet man enthusiastically let himself go on stage, sometimes reaching a state of trance, and revealing a rare ability to really get something across to the audience, which made him one of the most impressive showmen of his time.

This is the first chapter in the long story of Ray Charles' career as an artist. The second is covered by our album "The Complete ABC Recordings 1959-1961" (3CD Le Chant du Monde 2742190.92).

The phrase 'Atlanta King of the Twelve String Guitar' shows the fascination Blind Willie McTell's music exerted over his audience, making him the most emblematic blues musician in Georgia. His work logically (and unfairly?) overshadowed that produced by many of his peers along the East Coast, even though they were fairly major artists themselves. McTell alone cannot be blamed for this state of affairs, especially since he was in fact happy to work with anyone he bumped into. Modest, but aware of his talent, and a subtle storyteller, McTell provided the blues world with some sophisticated and unique compositions. He alone incarnated the East Coast Blues just as Robert Johnson was the figurehead of the Delta blues.

Although Pop Jazz is Some Like It Odd's first album, the result is fully mature and impressive. Some Like It Odd's music conveys instant emotion while mixing several influences such as pure jazz, soul and pop music. Lady Gattica's voice is soft and sensual though strong and powerful and she is often compared to Sade. Mathieu Dersy who is both a composer and an awarded piano player has played with many musicians like Yaël Naïm, Vanessa Paradis, Ken Norris, and Peter Volpe. These open minded talented artists are embodying the creative bridge between pop and jazz, which appear to be after all artificial boundaries.

Image Let's Have a Party
When Wanda Jackson, the justly crowned Queen of Rockabilly, recorded "Let's Have A Party," a tune she made into a hit of her own in 1958 even after one-time boyfriend Elvis Presley had released a version of it, her delivery of the chorus wasn't so much a suggestion as a command. Jackson was recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, honored with a long-time-coming, Early Influence accolade for her pivotal role in the evolution of popular music, especially where female artists were concerned. As a teenager in the mid-50s, the diminutive Jackson was the first woman to perform unadulterated rock and roll - and she one-upped the boys defining this new genre, Presley included, with her exhilaratingly forthright approach. The young Jackson, an Oklahoma native, came across as both gritty and glamorous; a playfully suggestive growl to her voice matched the daring, handmade outfits she wore, short skirts and fringed dresses that have inspired would-be bad girls for decades to come. A tireless touring artist for more than 50 years, Jackson continues to win over new, young fans.

Gainsbourg charmed us and repelled us, sometimes even charmed us and repelled us, which made him a familiar enigma, a dazzling mystery. Simultaneously both Jekyll and Hyde, shy and provocative, modest yet exhibitionist, Gainsbourg and Gainsbarre, Yin and Yang, masculine and feminine, God and the devil, he undoubtedly represents the two extremes of desire and natural urges. Gainsbourg is almost unique in French music. Only he and Léo Ferré developed their own texts and their arrangements to such an extent. Serge Gainsbourg wrote and composed not as an author or a musician would, but like a painter. He used words, notes and instruments as he would have done colours and paintbrushes. Light or dark, gentle, cynical, wild with excitement, pastel, bright, warm or cold, peaceful or violent, his poetic images are impressed upon us as if he had painted them.

More than just a singer, Eddie Cochran was first and foremost a guitarist and musician. He was a gifted one too, with an original style using the slide technique, but also excelled at the picking guitar. He was a good instrumentalist, and was often employed as accompanist for other singers. His compositions have been taken up by various groups. First of all, 'Summertime Blues'.
Many musicians recognise the debt they owe to some aspect or other of Cochran's work. These include The Clash, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Rod Stewart, Brian Setzner, Led Zeppelin... Incidentally, it was because John Lennon was so impressed by the way Paul McCartney played 'Twenty Flight Rock' that he asked him to join his group, The Quarrymen, later known as The Beatles!

The pianist, singer and composer Clara Ponty's diverse musical background is the source of inspiration for the development of her unique musical body of work. Born in Paris and raised in Los Angeles, Clara was immersed in many musical genres thanks, in large part to her father, world-renowned jazz violinist and composer Jean-Luc Ponty. She began studying violin and piano when she was five, wrote her first piece when she was eight and won her first piano competition at age 11. Today, Clara Ponty is that rare artist, whose enticing and virtuoso level playing fuses her classical heritage with jazz and pop rhythms into a seamless stream of captivating sounds.

Now well established as a composer and pianist of rare distinction, what a pleasure it is to discover Clara as a singer, taking a new direction on an album of beautiful pop-soul songs (with lyrics in English). For this her fifth album Clara has invited contributions from her father, and from Nigel Kennedy, Vincent Segal, Stephane Guillaume and others.

Image PORTUGAL! / Amalia Rodrigues & Legends
As the beat pulsing behind the mists of time, lost love, the human condition and nostalgia for the dead, Fado still fascinates us. The word means 'fate' and for the Portuguese, Fado is a song from out on the seas, swollen with memories and the nostalgia of mariners who were tossed from one side of the Atlantic to the other. This form of music, with its hints of ardent sentimentality, passionate love, murderous jealousy and wounds to the heart made a permanent name for itself in casas de fado. From these genuine temples of the genre came most of the great names of contemporary Fado, such as António Menano, Joaqim Pimentel, José Porfirio. Maria do Carmo, Alfredo Rodrigo Duarte, Edmundo de Bettencourt, Alfredo Duarte and Maria Silva. At the end of the war, a new, largely feminine, generation of Fado singers was born, of which the undisputed queen was Amalia Rodrigues.

Image I'm A Man
In the 1950s, as a founder of rock 'n' roll, Mr. Diddley - along with Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis and a few others - helped to reshape the sound of popular music worldwide, building on the templates of blues, Southern gospel, R&B and postwar black American vernacular culture. His original style of rhythm and blues influenced generations of musicians. And his Bo Diddley syncopated beat - three strokes/rest/two strokes - became a stock rhythm of rock 'n' roll. Yet the rhythm was only one element of his best records. In songs like "Bo Diddley," "Who Do You Love," "Mona," "Crackin' Up," "Say, Man," "Ride On Josephine" and "Road Runner," his booming voice was loaded up with echo and his guitar work came with distortion and a novel bubbling tremolo. The songs were knowing, wisecracking and full of slang, mother wit and sexual cockiness.

Originally from Ark-La-Tex (the south west of Arkansas, the north west of Louisiana and the north-east of Texas), the socio-economic area of over a million residents which had the town of Shreveport at its heart, William Huddie Ledbetter, alias 'Lead Belly', was one of the representatives of the initial generation of 'country musicians' born before 1890, who learned their art at a time when blues music was no more than a vague promise. His repertoire was originally made up of all the styles which were played in his home county (narrative ballads, work songs, cowboy songs, dances, marching music, pop or generic songs etc.) A genuine walking music archive, he knew an incalculable number of songs which would have been lost in the meanders of time.

Along with Blind Blake and Blind Willie McTell, Reverend Gary Davis is one of the three main figureheads of the 'East Coast School of Ragtime Guitar'. A character as loveable for his generosity as he was irritating for his unwillingness to compromise (or perhaps on the contrary 'remarkable for his uncompromising nature and irritating in his generosity') the man was always glad to give advice and share his teachings. He often got ripped off and denied his rights, but he never wavered from the content or the form of his art. He was never tempted to sell his soul at the crossroads for an extra dose of genius. He left behind him enough recordings to continue, almost half a century later, to inspire and stimulate hundreds of musicians and delight thousands of listeners.

The artists behind this new genre were Tom Jobim, Carlos Lyra, and especially Joao Gilberto (to which list, by rights, should also be added the poet Vinícius de Moraes). Their compositions, the fruit of a group of musicians sharing their ideas, had an innovatively casual feel, and used new harmonies with jazzy or European influences. All these young artists, who were mainly active at night, led a bohemian existence and were driven by the same unshakeable confidence in Brazil's future, and their hope that democracy and the economy would progress. They expressed this newly light-hearted atmosphere through recurrent themes like the sea, the waves, the beach, the sky, women and love.

B.B. King became a universal star and a figurehead for the blues, through longevity, perserverance and sheer talent. He met with appreciation and recognition wherever he went. As of 1990 and up until his death, the most official tributes, rewards and honours rained down on him regularly like so many signs of affection and recognition. A both modest and generous character, over the space of seven decades, B.B. King kept a mischievous and kind-hearted eye on all those - both laymen and celebrities - who came to show their attachment to and admiration for him.

Muddy Waters is the most emblematic character in the history of blues music. He's a sort of electrified version of Robert Johnson. When he arrived in Chicago in the spring of 1943, he brought with him the rural blues of the Deep South, which, in his hands and with the city's simmering energy behind it, lost none of its strength or expressiveness. Music no longer tuned into current fashions; instead, it was the modern world which adapted to the bitter and generous sound of country blues.

Christina Rosmini is one of those rare performers capable of skilfully expressing both her convictions and her indignation with force and panache Her golden voice, like the caress of the southern sun, floods her songs with lively and subtle emotions. Rebellious and profound, languid and sensual, naïve, yet convincing, filled with ardour and carried by a breath of freedom that defies all "fads", she invites us into her world with a personal tone that sets her poetry against the backdrop of the Mediterranean, whose stories she has to tell. Her singing captures and captivates, it brings us from the burning verses of Federico Garcia Lorca to the front lines of the French Front Populaire, bringing us home to the revolutionary songs we hold deep in our hearts.

Dramatic diva with a haunting voice and stunning stage presence. For her second album, Daughter Of The Spring, singer Mor Karbasi explores roots: remembering and recalling childhood, parents, family, "the fire of" youth, first love, the search for true love and the passing on of wisdom and tradition through one's own family. "Mor Karbasi is one of the great young divas of the global music scene, alongside the likes of Mariza or Yasmin Levy. But Karbasi has her own, highly individual approach to the music and she sounds as dramatic as she looks, switching effortlessly from songs that mix flamenco and North African influences. Like many of the best new songs here, it was written by Karbasi herself, along with her impressive co-producer Joe Taylor. This is surely one of the albums of the year".

The Italian singer-songwriter is a major star in continental Europe, with sales of his most successful album Il valzer di un giorno reaching 80,000. Sadly Testa's incessant touring schedule has still not brought him to the UK, but at least we have his latest (his eighth overall) album to savour. The booklet has lyrics in English, Italian and French.

Gianmaria Testa was born near Cuneo (in Italy's Piedmont region) in 1958. He grew up in a family of farmers and he learned as self -taught to play guitar, writing his first songs as soon as he learned his chords. Gianmaria played and sang in several local rock bands before discovering his true, solitary vocation. In 1993 and 1994 he won first prize at the Recanati Festival for emerging singer-songwriters, where he met a French producer (Nicole Courtois) who took a liking to his demo tape. His first CD, Montgolfières, came out on Label Bleu in 1995. Gianmaria's warm, dusky voice tells stories of wind and memories, earth and fog, objects that soar from one horizon to another and ladies in train stations ("Donne nelle stazioni") who head off on someone else's arm without looking back. His music is personal and richly melodic, flecked with accents of tango, bossa nova, habañera and jazz, but as spare and essential as a pencil sketch, imparting great beauty with simplicity and directness.

Image ESPANA! /Grandes Personajes del Flamenco
A dance, a way of singing and of playing the guitar: Flamenco is all this, even if originally, it was a secular, popular type of song which was rough, plaintive, wild, exalted, powerful, barren and incantatory. Its origins can no doubt be traced back to Antiquity.

"Flamenco, flame, the fire cantaores fan in their throats... It's a fire which must be extinguished to put an end to suffering." (Lucien Clergue).

Song is the main mode of expression for Flamenco and its ritual never changes. Over the years, some great male and female vocalists have left their mark on history: Carmen Amaya (who was both a singer and a dancer), La Perla de Cádiz, Tia Anica La Piriñaca, La Paquera de Jerez, La Nina de los Peines, Porrina de Badajoz, Canalejas de Jerez, José Menese, Curro de Utrera, Camarón de la Isla, Juan Talega, Beni de Cádiz, Manuel El Agujeta, Terremoto de Jerez, Manuel Soto El Sordera, Pepe Marchena, El Niño del Almadén and Rafael Farina are among the most remarkable figureheads of Flamenco. Guitar music shines just as bright in the hands of Paco Aguillera, Pedro Bacan, Paco Cepero, Roman El Granaino, Pepe Habichuela, Paco de Lucia, Melchor de Marchena, Carlos Montoya, Nino de Ricardo and Sabicas.

Massilia Sound System is a reggae band formed in Marseille, France in 1984. They developed a Provençal hybrid version of reggae, rub-a-dub and raggamuffin with lyrics in the French and Occitan languages, sometimes referred to as trobamuffin (from the Occitan word trobador and the musical style raggamuffin), though they have also performed in Portuguese and Italian. They incorporate many rhythms, beats and samples from the local tradition or other musical colleagues, and their lyrics indicate a profound parochialism for Marseille and the south of France in general.Massilia Sound System re-popularised the city of Marseille in the 1990s, in conjunction with the success of Olympique de Marseille, the local soccer club. Along with that empowered an entire generation of young Marseillais with a positive identity, proud of their city and their capacity to embrace different cultural traditions.

Image A thin sea of flesh: Dylan Thomas poems
I discovered Dylan Thomas through the funeral song Stravinsky composed in his memory using the poem entitled 'Do not go gentle into that good night'. At the time I was looking for texts to set to music and this work helped me to delve into the texts of this poet who I really didn't understand properly, but his writing lent itself so well to being used with music. When I discovered the translations some time later I was intrigued and delighted by the absence of any reference to a definite era or civilisation: out of the twelve texts I selected for this album, and with the exception of 'Paper and sticks' (that Dylan Thomas wanted to exclude from his complete works because of its realistic tone), 'The hunchback in the park' (a childhood memory) and 'The tombstone told when she died (inspired by a short news item) everything was in fact about the origins of the universe, human destiny, the transformations and gestation of man and the Earth, the violent break between the subject and his social environment, the violence of sexual impulses, or immortality.

In Elmore James' brand of blues, more than the harshness of his guitar - amplified until it is almost too loud - his voice is what stands out and drives us almost to distraction. Like dozens of others, Elmore James was an outstanding guitarist, a determined bandleader, a reliable composer and an imaginative songwriter. Like some others, the title of 'King of the Slide Guitar' seemed to be one he deserved, but like almost no one, he had the rare ability to generate extremely varied emotions and express the inexpressible, to pierce people's souls and brains with his unique, inimitable and completely novel voice. Elmore James erases all boundaries between 'urban' blues and 'country' blues. A genuine desperado of this brand of music, he managed to break free of the constraints of a profession which reduced creative freedom to the hypothetically inescapable demands of clients and the market.

Image BRAZIL: Um Rio
Márcio was born in Alegrete, a small town in southern Brazil. From the early age of seven, he came into contact with the varied cultures of his vast homeland thanks to the different postings held by his father in the course of his job. This kind of enforced nomadism meant that the young Márcio was able to integrate most of the forms of traditional music, including the samba, the choro and the baião, very early on... Thus equipped, he and his family settled in Brasília in 1975, where he launched into his life as an artist. He was now just 16. After winning prizes at various regional festivals, he decided in 1988 to try his luck as a songwriter/composer/singer in Rio de Janeiro. Small jobs and some commissions encouraged him to take the step of leaving his homeland, and in 1991 he went to live in the South of France with his French wife, whom he'd met a few years earlier in Rio. Rémy Kolpa Kopoul, 'talent-spotter' on Radio Nova says: "Like a self-questioning, serene stage in his itinerary, one bordering on asceticism, Faraco has marked out his territory."

Image Crossroads Blues
In March, 1937, Vocalion released Robert Johnson's first '78. The record was an immediate hit. The most mysterious thing about Robert Johnson is not that he left Robinsonville as a mediocre guitarist one day in 1930 to return two years later as the undisputed king of the Delta Blues. Whether, to reach this aim he sold his soul to the devil, or received lessons from some obscure benefactor does not tell us anything about the impact the rediscovery of his work as of 1959 was to have. In the space of 7 months, Robert Johnson left to posterity 29 tracks which, over a century later, still fascinate an ever growing audience. "The most important blues musician who ever lived" (in Eric Clapton's words) never knew anything of this since he never returned to the studio again: he was poisoned to death on the 16th of August, 1938 in Greenwood, Mississippi.

Big Bill Broonzy is one of the most prolific musicians in blues history. He also wrote around 200 original blues tracks. His art fed off the music of the Delta as much as that of the East Coast and New Orleans. He could perform equally well as part of a jazz ensemble, a gospel band or as a solo artist with a more specifically folksy playlist. His deep, penetrating voice with its expressive, subtle changes in tone conveyed very varied emotions and feelings. By refusing any particular allegiance, Big Bill Broonzy, who always worked with the same subtlety, humour and sense of rebellion and tragedy, was able to charm any audience and capture anyone's attention. He was the first artist to turn the blues into a universal language.

John Lee Hooker's brand of blues stands out from all others. As soon as his first note strikes up, always borderline saturated, as soon as his gravelly, unrelenting voice rings out, as soon as he sets in motion his nagging and obsessively repetitive rhythm, even the most ill-informed listener knows what to expect. There is no other bluesman so immediately identifiable. Hooker's blues seems to have sprung from nowhere. It is impossible to pinpoint its inspiration, its origin, or to tie its uniqueness to any existing style, trend, region or time period.

Tchavolo Schmitt was introduced to the guitar at the age of 6 by his mother; his father played the violin. He developed, with time, a virtuosity in the manouche style and his renown rapidly exceeded the limits of Alsace, his ancestral region. He became influential among his peers, in particular at Porte de Montreuil or Chope des Puces in Saint-Ouen, legendary homes of manouche swing. In 1979, he became a professional musician, and in that year, after leaving Paris to return to his Alsatian roots, he joined the band "Hot Club da Sinti", which included the violinist Wedeli Köhler, the guitarist Schmeling Lehmann, and the bass player Jani Lehmann. A single LP recording (now a collector's item) was released in 1981. While his career paused during the 1980s, in 1993 he joined the band "Gypsy Reunion" (with, among others, Dorado Schmitt, Patrick Saussois and Gino Reinhardt). In 2000, he released the first album under his own name, with the friendly support and the active participation of Romane, titled Alors?... Voilà!. This album was followed in 2001 by Miri Familia.

With musical direction by Custódio Castelo and registered at the studios "Pé-de-vento" by Fernando Nunes, "À Flor da Pele" pictures an intense and truthful affinity. The idea was to create a group of Fado instead of just a Fado singer with her accompanist musicians. Pedro Amendoeira at the Portuguese Guitar, Pedro Pinhal at the Fado's Guitar and Paulo Paz at the Acoustic Bass and Double Bass, both instrumentalists and composers of some of the themes in this record, they show clearly that, in order to create a strong and meaningful project, one has to live each moment in the edge.

There are plenty of musicians who attempt to celebrate Chet Baker 'the trumpet player'. However, those who are able to pay tribute to Chet Baker 'the singer' are few and far between. Joe Barbieri is without a doubt the most appropriate candidate to address this alternative aspect of Chet's talent. With his smooth and yet fragile tone, his acute yet profound sensitivity and his ability to leave his own ego totally to one side, Joe Barbieri tackles Chet's repertoire with a wise man's simplicity and an admirer's humble respect.

This fellow artist, originally from Naples, has already had three chances to demonstrate his approach, which seems so fragile where in fact it is simply delicate in style (on the albums "In Parole Povere" in 2004, "Maison Maravilha" in 2009 and "Respiro" in 2012). Like Chet's, Barbieri's voice brushes lightly over us rather than caressing us, whispers more than it murmurs, while always maintaining a precarious balance and a natural, innocent touch. Barbieri's mode of expression strikes us as in every way as uncontrived. The lack of affectedness proves he is never tempted to put his own talents on
display. Barbieri never falls into the trap of feigning pain or showing compassion. He shares with Chet the ability to scrub each track clean of all superfluous artifice. Chet Lives! is the selfless homage of an eternal admirer.

The album includes Stacey Kent among its special guests, on "I Fall In Love Too Easily".

Great voices, the kind which get under your skin and never let you forget them, are not those which scale great technical heights; they are those which, honed to the most accurate possible degree of human feeling, reveal the secret path they travel from the very depths of the soul which produced them out into the wide world where they are received. Such is Gianmaria Testa's voice. In the way it is underpinned by a subtle mix of French chanson, jazz, Latino rhythms and hints of rock music, it gives off a unique, disturbing scent, combining familiar and unheard-of elements which vie for our attention. The tracks on this double album were recorded on a tour during which Testa performed at concert halls in Germany, Austria and Luxembourg.

Image 3CD-BOX: Out of this World Weather Bird (Jazz Char
John Coltrane is the ultimate reference in saxophone music : his style and his work brought about a genuine revolution in jazz music and, far beyond that, in music across the board. This was an even greater and more lasting transformation than the one wrought by Charlie Parker a few years earlier. It took real genius to make his sound, which - in a single breath - mixed the influences of music from around the world, burn so brightly. Aside from the way he played, Coltrane's very approach to music will always fascinate those who came after him.

Seven CD box set of Gianmaria Testa's Studio albums with 152-page multilingual booklet. Includes the albums Montgolfieres (1995); Extra-Muros (1996); Lampo (1999); Il Valzer di in Giorno (2000); Altre Latitudini (2003); Da Questa Parte del Mare (2006); Vitamia (2011). Gianmaria Testa was born near Cuneo (in Italy's Piedmont region) in 1958. He grew up in a farming family and was self-taught on the guitar, writing his first songs as soon as he learned his chords. Gianmaria played and sang in several local rock bands before discovering his true vocation as a solo artist. In 1993 and 1994 he won first prize at the Recanati Festival for emerging singer-songwriters, where he met a French producer (Nicole Courtois) who took a liking to his demo tape. His first CD, Montgolfières, came out on Label Bleu in 1995 and he went on to record seven studio albums and to release a further three live albums, for the French label le Chant du Monde. He became a major star in several European countries and further afield, his best-selling opus Il Valzer di in Giorno selling upwards of 80,000 units. Sadly though he never made it over to the UK before his death last year. Gianmaria's warm, husky voice tells stories of wind and memories, of the soil, the elements, of people, longing, loss and regret. His music is personal and richly melodic, flecked with accents of tango, bossa nova, habañera and jazz, but as spare and essential as a pencil sketch, imparting great beauty with simplicity and directness.

This exhaustive set comprises the monumental output that Rock'n'Roll pioneer Chuck Berry recorded for Chess in his first smash hit period, beginning with the million-selling first single "Maybellene" and including all the tracks which made Berry an iconic superstar. The detailed booklet recounts the story of the period, up to Berry's imprisonment on a charge of living off immoral earnings and corruption of a minor, an episode that almost ruined him until his British Invasion-inspired comeback in the mid-Sixties.

The 100 tracks herein are a vital canon of music history, massively influential and oft-covered (by, most famously, Elvis, The Beatles, the Stones and Hendrix but also by artists from Neil Sedaka to the New York Dolls), elegantly presented in a 10-panel foldout digipack with original artwork and 60-page Eng/Fr booklet.

Ian Shaw - jazz singer, songwriter (plus stand-up comedian, radio presenter and producer!) - has returned to working with that classic jazz ensemble, the piano trio. A frequent and accomplished solo performer, for this new recording Ian craved a bit of company, and what company he found… the outstanding pianist Barry Green, distinguished bassist Mick Hutton and ace drummer Dave Ohm, three of the UK’s very finest players. The group has been performing an exciting set of brand new arrangements at festivals and club dates in the UK and Europe, including four recent sell-out shows at London’s Ronnie Scott’s Club. These finely honed new songs were then captured for this new release, “The Theory Of Joy”. Recorded at Snap! Studios in North London in the summer of 2015, Ian was thrilled to have the world-renowned singer Claire Martin as his producer. The involvement of the visionary sound engineer Joe Leach on the project fulfilled another long-held wish.

4 AV 5 MÖJLIGA I BETYG I GÖTEBORGS-POSTEN

"Den amerikanske pianisten Ahmad Jamal hör till jazzens mest inflytelserika nydanare, med ett helt eget förhållande till tid och frasering. Vid 82 års ålder kommer han här med sitt nionde album sedan 2000. Manolo Badrena kompletterar Jamals fina pianotrio på slagverk, de följer lätt och lugnt Jamal när han hamrar feta blockackord med vänsterhanden samtidigt som han river och sliter i rytm och melodistruktur så att man bara med näppe hör att det är Blue moon eller Laura han spelar. Enastående läckert är det. Jamals egna original är också de högklassiga."

Blue Moon is not just Ahmad Jamal's latest album, it's his latest masterpiece, suffused with a feeling reminiscent of his greatest periods with Chess and Impulse! Original compositions of pure majesty, brilliant new interpretations of American legends (the "film noir", Broadway, the vast open spaces), each of these nine pieces showcases Jamal's creative reinvention of swing, provides a pretext for some breathtaking melodies and calls on sophisticated syncopations that will leave you gasping. Accompanied by three impeccable guardians of the tempo, Ahmad Jamal is at the peak of his art. Formerly a highly talented pianist of a type of music known as jazz, he is now the chief apostle of American classical music.

Image Nothing for Granted
SANDRA NKAKÉ : vocals, clavinet / Jî Drû : flute, clavinet, percussion / Julien Tekeyan : drums, shaker / Christophe Minck : bass / Matthieu Ouaki : guitar / Antoine Berjeaut : trumpet, bugle

Half-way between a soul-like energy, a pop rock feeling and an imaginary soundtrack, Sandra Nkaké is releasing an album of homemade songs. She tells us stories of individual or collective fates that meet, all racked with existential choices.
"Nothing For Granted" is a journey through the energy that all those characters express to define or redefine their destinies. Altogether epic, poetic or explosive, the music conveys their inner self and their cry for freedom.
"The album comes from a will to focus on everyday life scenes that make the poetry of it all, and which, from end to end, form the big Story" says Sandra Nkaké who wrote and composed her four-hand-album with her long-standing partner, flautist and producer Jî Drû. During a year, in an apartment transformed into a studio, they imagined and gave birth to those touching, lost, funny, gentle characters: « A little girl spies on adults (Conversation), a young junkie observes her street (Same Reality), a cry for freedom is let out (Mankind), a man refuses fatality and social codes (Like a Buffalo), each of them looking for some form of emancipation and flying away from a world full of norms and prejudices".
To paint that detailed picture recorded with vintage instruments, Sandra Nkaké is accompanied by Julien Tekeyan (drums), Christophe Minck (bass) and Matthieu Ouaki (guitar). Forming some united and powerful pop rock rythmics, their floating music stand (Jérôme Drû - flute - and Antoine Berjeaut - trumpet, bugle -) takes us into a soundtrack in which we could meet Nancy Sinatra and Tom Waits. Jean-Baptiste Brunhes' mix (Arthur H, Catherine Ringer, Emily Loizeau, Bertrand Belin...) sends into space this world in which Sandra Nkaké raw and husky voice takes all its fullness.

In this retro/futuristic world, the flawless arrangements and unstoppable groove delineate this young woman's vision, her wandering and her rebirth: pure pleasure...

The trumpet of Franco-Catalonian Raynald Colom tells a whole story, weaving a common theme through the original jazz swing, the rage of hip hop and the sounds of freedom so dear to great black music, with some brilliant passages soaring into chamber music and French chanson too. Between Colom's new, inspired versions and witty allusions, we hear the shades of Bix Beiderbecke, the Last Poets, the Art Ensemble and Coltrane, not forgetting Bartók and Leo Ferré... This is jazz at its most modern, jazz with its head held high, jazz of today and proud of its history, jazz whose beat tells its true nature - open yet committed.

Image Yo
Roberto Fonseca accompanies his music with his whole body, even standing up in order to hammer his piano as if it were a percussion instrument. It may happen that he grabs a snare drum and thus transforms his group into a « comparsa » - a percussion ensemble, which parades down the streets during the carnival, the Cuban equivalent of the Brasilian « batucada » - compelling the following public in euphoric dance...

YO, his new album, prolongs this feast and reveals it in a way you have never before experienced. Recognized as a major influence of modern Cuban jazz, and jazz in general, he proves that his horizon is not limited by the subtleties of the blue note, neither of the azure of the Caribbean. That he has chosen to name it after his own first name « yo », « I » or « me» in Spanish, and to pose shirtless on his album cover, his hands open to the sky, is not unimportant. His photo in the nude, without hat, nor jewellery, evokes a rebirth. This record unveils the beginning of a new phase more than the closure of an old one, Fonseca explains. It expresses my view of my roots in light of my experience and exposes the diversity of my musical universe, all these ideas, which I put aside in a part of my head without having the opportunity to use them. If the new compositions revisit themes such as love and spirituality, which already nourished his work, this time Fonseca draws from a rich musical palette full of contrasts. In place of his usual jazz quintet, with YO he develops a concept of a union between electro analogue and African instruments, Hammond organs and et n'goni lutes, congas and tamani drums, all together combined in a synthesis of Afro- Cuban groove and Griot tradition.

To those people who are still wondering who is Roberto Fonseca and to all those who thought they knew him, the Cuban musician replies: YO. The Cuban pianist's new album is at the crossroads of jazz, traditional music and electronica, exploring new sounds and dimensions, while paying tribute to Cuba's African roots.

Dark and yet luminous, nostalgic and joyful, Virginie Teychené's voice generates a feeling of elation. In a climate of exultation, the young singer and the musicians avoid the temptations of a grotesque imitation or on the other hand of artificial originality.

So this is a Jazz record belonging to an untimely art form rarely given media coverage to. Here, vocal expression is deliberately cleared of all fioriture so that it can reach the essential and reveal the subtleties of the music. That is what seduces the most.

With a disarming sobriety, tutelary Jazz figures are brought to mind (composers such as Billy Stayhorn, Charles Mingus and Antonio Carlos Jobin but also improvisators: Chet Baker, Eddie Jefferson, James Moody...) and as an indirect consequence, the sketch of a self-portrait stands out, the one of a Jazz singer.

This album confirms it, Virginie Teychené is a musician with a voice. She strolls through her imaginary museum dedicated to jazz singer-songwriters and brings her own light to each of its rooms. A grazing light in Familiar Dream, a bright light in Tight, the light of dawn in I'm Gonna Go Fishing and that of dusk in Goodbye Pork Pie Hat. The contributions of her co-musicians are intense due to their restraint; Gérard Maurin's weightless double-bass arrangements, Stéphane Bernard's chiaroscuro piano playing, Jean-Pierre Arnaud's dance-like drumming, and last but not least, Éric Le Lann's inspired trumpet playing, all make Bright and Sweet an exemplary jazz album, where all the miniatures that make it up are in fact merely beginnings.

It plays out like a news broadcast, peppered with short, improvised news breaks that highlight his compositions and their openness to a multitude of influences. Jazz, rock, folk, African, Israeli and North Indian classical music are dispersed throughout the album where Gilad's harmonic creativity and rhythmic mastery prove to be natural elements of the melodic virtuosity that has become his trademark. Leading his powerful trio with Joe Martin on bass, Marcus Gilmore on drums and guest saxophonist Mark Turner on two tracks, Gilad Hekselman's deliciously dynamic music truly shines.

The singing is superlative, her voice enveloping itself in the sensuality of the songs and in the twists and turns of the rhythms. The personality of this truly modern woman is reflected in her themes which speak of sharing, of freedom, of love and of sincerity. The album without doubt marked the birth of a major new talent.

Cuba's foremost pianist has developed a brand new repertoire. Boasting a new line-up for his band, The Afro-Cuban Messengers, and a guest appearance from legendary saxophonist Branford Marsalis on three tracks, his new album takes us through an eclectic range of piece. His dazzling virtuosity as a pianist, his prodigious talents as a composer and his ingenious arrangements unite to create a music that enthralls. Alongside new sources of inspiration (the music of the North American Indians and of the Arab-Andalusian culture), the album is infused with the verve of Valdés' early trailblazing Cuban Jazz ensemble Irakere, his nostalgia for Cuban big bands, the punch of Hard Bop, the magical rhythms of the Yoruba drums, and of course the spiritual lyricism which is the mark of all great jazz.

American jazz bassist and composer Kyle Eastwood embraces a musical heritage that goes back to the soundtrack of his youth, when he not only listened to Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Miles Davis, but also went backstage at concerts with his famous father to meet all these great artists. Jazz is his passion, a passion that flourished in the company of such masters as Ray Brown, Lennie Niehaus and Buell Neidlinger. After producing a wonderful and critically-acclaimed series of albums for the Candid label, Eastwood makes his début on Jazz Village. For The View From Here, Eastwood and band traveled to France to record at La Buissonne, one of France's finest studios. Dynamic, bursting with powerful grooves and innovative melodies, The View From Here reveals Eastwood as one of the seminal musicians of today, displaying both his expertise as a bandleader and his brilliance and creativity as a composer.

Film of Life extends the parameters of Afrobeat, encompassing jazz and psychelic pop, from 'African Man' to 'Afro Kung Fu Beat' (the original version can be heard on the The Last King of Scotland soundtrack), from 'Tiger Skip' (featuring Damon Albarn on melodica) to Tonywood (recorded with the American-born Nigerian singer Kuku). A musician faithful to his roots, Tony is not afraid to take a stand, as in 'The Boat Journey', inspired by the recent struggles of exile. A theme echoed in 'Go Back', co-written and sung by Damon Albarn in the true spirit of the Philly sound. In harmony with the current renaissance of interest in Great Black Music, 'Ire Omo', 'Mojo' (with Manu Dibango on saxophone), 'Koko Dance' and 'Insider' are instantly recognisable as the work of a past master of the art.

Image Time Pieces
Time Pieces, the new album by double-bass player Kyle Eastwood, is a musical self-portrait. Organized around the quintet's often collective compositions, Eastwood offers a couple of covers (Herbie Hancock and Horace Silver) that show his passion for lyrical hard bop, and a fresh interpretation of one of his compositions for the cinema one of the main focal points of Eastwood's career. Full of melodic elegance and a sustained sense of groove, Time Pieces puts us right at the heart of a modern, contemporary jazz songbook. Eastwood is joined by Brandon Allen on sax, Quentin Collins on trumpet and flugelhorn, Andre McCormack on piano and drummer Ernesto Simpson.

Image The Son of a Bluesman
A native of Buffalo in the state of New York, this singer, guitarist and organ player is one of the most authentic legatees of blues today; he knows of its forefathers and their oral tradition, respects its history and its legacy and knows how to play and sing it like nobody else, with his booming voice brimming with emotion. Mixing original compositions and inspired covers (of Bobby 'Blue' Bland, Wilson Pickett and even Johnny Nash), he brings us an album on which poetry, dark thoughts and hope combine with an insuppressible groove.

With these eleven tracks forged in a furnace of fiery soul and rhythm 'n' blues, giving off the odd spark of gospel and rock 'n' roll, Lucky Peterson isn't just making his big comeback. He's putting blues, the oldest form of black American music, back on the forefront of the stage.

After several musical collaborations (Malka Family, Le Professeur Inlassable, The Selenites), Bibi Tanga has focused his attention on a new solo project. Driven by his sunshine vocals and the slippery groove of his bass, this is soul music at its most inventive and elegant. Now, the album's punchy title, perfectly captures its spirit. With inspiration springing from R&B, jazz, hip hop, and afrofunk, no wonder this music is so in tune with contemporary urban culture.

Image Riah Sahitaalhk
French prog legends MAGMA have signed to Jazz Village. Over the next 18 months the label will release new works as well as undertaking a major vinyl re-issue programme. The first release is a dramatic reworking of the epic track Rïah Sahïltaahk - now available as a mini-album on CD and LP. Rïah Sahïltaahk, the Kobaïan who set out after the others despite their disapproval, who considered himself superior, who thought he could convert the enemies of Kobaïa to the Kobaïan spirit. But he failed, and wound up alone. On the allegorical stopover planet of Malaria he confronts the full fury of the elements, imagining he will emerge triumphant. His ship almost completely submerged, he is finally forced to implore the elements for mercy but to no avail. He disappears, drowned, swept away in a storm of elemental trance. After the clamor... silence. History and Context: The original version of Rïah Sahïltaahk formed Side 1 of the group's second album 1001° Centigrades, recorded in 1971. At the time Christian Vander was unhappy with the arrangement written by the group, and indeed the line-up changed after the album's release. This radically new version, adapted to suit the group s current line-up and classical voices, is more faithful to the spirit of Magma s music and its uniquely weird and wonderful nature.

Finally, music to set the cat among the pigeons... Magma are the dynamite that will explode the conventions of a music scene that is becoming rather too self-satisfied with its own beauty... Magma are unlike anything that has gone before... So people were saying in 1970. In 2015, nearly half a century later, this is truer than ever and the new mini-album Slag Tanz (pronounced schlag tanz ), this veritable symphony of jazz metal that has erupted from nowhere, radiates with all Magma s singular intensity! Powerful, hypnotic, unclassifiable, musically there has been absolutely nothing to compare to them in the last fifty years... Magma are equal only to themselves.

Following 'The Grand Day of Quincy Brown' (Discograph, 2010) the album continues the story of Quincy, whose doubts, hopes, anger are emerging... Push Up travel through soul, rock and spoken word with effervescent energy and aplomb - a musical crucible somewhere between Gorillaz and Gnarls Barkley, Fishbone and Funkadelic.

'Young talents can never be discouraged enough,' claimed one Claude Debussy. Fortunately, the members of the ReZZo FOCAL Jazz in Vienna juries are aware that the strength of fledging artists is that they are not, in fact, discourageable . This applies in any case to the musicians who form UPTAKE, the lucky 2014 winners of this high profile jazz talent contest, one of the most important in Europe. Overflowing with groove and energy, this quartet which stems from the music scene in Lyons, France, has already mastered the art of interplay a synergetic way of spreading and shaping music together in total freedom.

Picture Marciac, during a sultry evening in early August, 2014. Like every year, this little town in the Gers region has been turned into the worldwide capital of jazz for a month and under the marquee Ahmad Jamal is stepping out onto the stage with his three fellow musicians. This time, it's the double bass player Reginald Veal's turn to set the tempo with a marvellous new track, Sunday Afternoon, which prolongs the magic of the albums Blue Moon and Saturday Morning. The band is in great shape and seems more than ever to function by telepathy. Majestically, Ahmad Jamal bestows upon us a wonderful, intense shot of groove; aside his own compositions, which fill the playlist for most of his set, he gives a nod to Cole Porter and Horace Silver, who has just died and to whom he makes a double tribute, both playing his famous track Strollin' and dedicating a new piece, Silver, to him. The group sounds better than ever, and their pianist has reached the highest echelons of genius. The audience drinks it all in, as we all can today, thanks to this unmissable double album which is a feast both for our ears and our eyes.

The DVD contains one extra track Morning Mist.

French saxophonist and composer Sylvain Rifflet has his finger firmly set on the pulse of modern times. Working with his group Alphabet, he has masterminded an innovative and spell-binding brand of music in which the modernity of his jazz sound combines with the world of New York minimalism. Poets and writers of the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century often described the then-nascent "industrial world" and its machines as "enemies of art." However some did not see progress as dehumanizing. Science fiction imagined a futuristic world, which inspired artists and writers such as Jules Verne and HG Wells. Rifflet's album Mechanics, with a cover illustration by Belgian comic book artist François Schuiten, journeys through forward looking and fantastical worlds.

His musical material has been carved out just as it should be (with the energy of live performances, jam sessions and themes, improvisations and new constructions which appear from nowhere) alongside a few faithful fellow musicians who take groove as their guideline. A leading figure of the best jazz made in France, the virtuoso saxophonist proves that he is more than an inventive composer: he's a pioneer of new sounds and a catalyst for the music of his time.

McCalla alternates between cello, tenor banjo and guitar, and sings in English, French and Haitian Creole. Whether she

songs, which ask big questions and demand big answers.

Soriana - Contemporary Music from the Orient is a body of musical works by Syrian composer and instrumentalist Basel Rajoub. The project features collaborations with like-minded artists celebrating their heritage and paying homage to the gift of musical knowledge.

Aleppo-born and now Swiss-based, Basel Rajoub is a consummate performer, skilled improviser, and highly original composer creating new music that is rooted in a thousand-year-old tradition. Basel is known for developing oriental music for the saxophone and is dedicated to helping his audience discover contemporary expression of myriad melodic modes of Arabic music. An innovator both on stage and in the studio, Basel performs as a solo artist and a leader of the Basel Rajoub Ensemble.

"Soriana is ‘our Syria’. Our country that we left behind, forced out either by a search or by circumstances. We head out thinking that we carry no baggage, completely unaware of the biggest gift our country has bestowed upon us. That gift is the gift of musical knowledge. It remains with me throughout many journeys, it soothes wounds and inspires creation, provides warmth and a platform of stability, images, aromas, tastes that water the mouth and inspire new creations still. This music is my gift to our Syria – Soriana."
