Marius Neset is one of the great new tenor sax players of our age, in the tradition of Michael Brecker and Jan Garbarek. On Pinball, Norwegian saxophone virtuoso Marius Neset and his quintet present a shimmering kaleidoscope of forms of expression and influences that delight with compositional and instrumental complexity. The album, arguably his strongest artistic statement to date, acts as a dual showcase for his gifts as an improviser and composer. At the same time, Neset sounds more mature, soulful and melodic than ever before. The quintet is joined on various tracks by guest musicians on cello, violin, flute and tambourine.

'Small Places' is double-bassist/composer Michael Formanek’s follow-up to The Rub and Spare Change, his widely lauded ECM debut as a leader. The new album features the same powerhouse band of longtime confreres, with Formanek in seemingly telepathic league with saxophonist Tim Berne, pianist Craig Taborn and drummer Gerald Cleaver. If anything, Small Places is a step beyond this quartet’s first release, with the compositions and improvisation blending so that a listener is scarcely able to tell where one leaves off and the other begins. Earthy yet atmospheric, this is jazz alive with dark-hued melody and bone-deep rhythms, rich in dynamic possibility and the sound of surprise.

The second ECM album by the Billy Hart Quartet is a major musical statement, and one of the outstanding jazz albums of the season. The group’s reach – already broad on 2011’s widely-acclaimed All Our Reasons – is yet more expansive here. Strong compositions – by leader-drummer Hart, tenorist Mark Turner and pianist Ethan Iverson – reflect upon a wide swathe of the music’s history, and are distinguished by vivid and imaginative solos and wonderful interplay. A basic premise, that this should be a band in which the vastly-experienced Billy Hart gets to play everything he wants to play, has led to a sense of almost unlimited possibility for all participants. There is freedom and joy in this music, and tenderness, too, not least in the set’s sole standard, a beautifully played version of “Some Enchanted Evening”.

Iva Bittova is the acclaimed Czech singer/performer/composer’s beautifully self-titled solo debut for ECM. This unique work expresses the essence of Bittova’s craft and explores the deep relationship between the violin and her voice. The pieces here, modestly-titled “Fragments I-XII” resist definition. An idiosyncratic ‘folk’ music, contemporary composition, improvisation, any and all of these may apply from moment to moment. Her music is lively and revolutionary.

This Just In, Gilad Hekselman's fourth album, is by far his most exciting. 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 Hekselman'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.
