As a unit, this must be one of the best piano trios ever, and certainly as instantly recognisable as any of its great predecessors. Charlap’s touch on the keyboard is light, almost stealthy, even when playing full chords, but always firm, clear and beautifully articulated. With the spirited support of bassist Peter Washington and drummer Kenny Washington (famously unrelated), the total effect is just perfect. As always, Charlap’s playing provides convincing proof that it is still possible to create fresh but pertinent treatments of well-known standard songs. The son of a songwriter and a singer, he has an instinctive feel for the idiom. His versions here of I’ll Remember April and A Sleepin’ Bee are masterly.

Genre: Ambient | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Projekt

Pushing the boundaries of perception-expanding music, Steve Roach and Robert Logan release two vastly different transmissions of powerful emotion and exploration. Biosonic’s elegant futurism and Second Nature’s romantic minimalism are distinct yet linked through a passion for engaging, subtle body-mind states. The former’s darkly ecstatic, deeply-layered, electro-neural atmosphere contrasts with the latter’s nuanced, sparse, ambient-atmospherics and processed-piano tone paintings…

2012 release from the Jazz pianist joined by bassist Steve Swallow and drummer Joey Baron. "Wisteria" takes a fresh look at several pieces last heard on record in Kuhn's orchestral Promises Kept collection - "Promises Kept" itself, "Adagio", "Morning Dew" and "Pastorale". Kuhn's compositions, few in number but robust and adaptable, have often lent themselves to quite different interpretations. If anything, these small group versions emphasize the emotional core of the material. Counterbalancing the yearning balladry, the album also includes driving, exciting hard bop (on "A Likely Story", for instance, and Swallow's "Good Lookin' Rookie), Carla Bley's gospel-tinged "Permanent Wave", and the Brazilian "Romance" by Dori Caymmi… It's a varied program which the trio seems to sail through effortlessly, musicians secure in their craft, beyond the need to prove anything, creating the agreeable illusion that this demanding music is playing itself.

Stranger Days is the young trumpeter Adam O’Farrill’s official recording debut as a leader, but he’s been attracting notice from the jazz cognoscenti for a while. That’s thanks to his being featured on saxophonist Rudresh Mahanthappa’s acclaimed 2015 album, Bird Calls, as well as coleading the O’Farrill Brothers Band and working with the siblings’ father, pianist-bandleader Arturo O’Farrill. In the piano-less quartet on the new disc, Adam again is joined by drummer brother Zack O’Farrill, but the former clearly leads as chief provocateur.

Jasper Høiby’s Fellow Creatures features both young and seasoned lights of the London jazz scene. The band is the first new venture for Jasper's own music since his formation of Phronesis in 2005, and as such will be hugely anticipated in jazz circles. The music embodies a strong sense of groove and an optimistic and driving energy, which combines with atmospheric textures and contrapuntal rhythms, leading Jazzwise to describe the band as "masters of evolving energy". Jasper Høiby's Fellow Creatures recorded their first album in January due for release on Edition Records in July 2016.
