“Working with forces unknown to me has always been an exciting challenge,” says Elliott Sharp, “especially when those forces are in the form of younger musicians, highly skilled and enthusiastic.” For his work with the musicians of the Veni Academy, he chose three previously composed works that would be easily adaptable to a large ensemble whose instrumentation was not the result of prior design plus one newly composed for the occasion. The chosen pieces were based on well-defined processes that made use of instant decision-making on the part of both the players and the conductor, and finally, some graphic notation. Composed in 2003 for string quartet, The Dispersion of Seeds uses a simple algorithm of arpeggiation of nine chords throughout its arc to create shifting verticalities. The piece would be different with every performance yet would retain its distinct identity.

Richard Wagner and Pyotr Ill'yich Tchaikovsky: these two composers seem to represent two musical extremes on the one CD, with their only connection being the orchestra and the conductor who here perform their works. Wagner had proclaimed himself as the saviour of German Romantic music, the master who would raise opera and its performance to a higher level; Tchaikovsky was a tormented Russian Romantic composer who was considered to be too focused on Italian music to be truly Russian and yet whose music was regarded as being too Russian to ever sound truly European…

Back in 2013, guitarist Robben Ford released Bringing It Back Home. Fine as it was, the album was transitional in that it offered the first evidence of a late-career renaissance wherein he began focusing on his skills as a singer and songwriter in addition to his reputation as an inimitable axe-slinger. Ford has taken great pride in the fact that he has never released the same album twice. He's always mining, exploring sounds and genres with an unparalleled restlessness. 2014's A Day in Nashville was a soul-inflected blues set that was captured live in studio during a single day. On 2015's Into the Sun, Ford played Southern-fried soul, funky jazz, and modern blues. In all three cases, the songwriting and arranging was miles beyond anything he'd delivered previously; each was record deeper, wider, and better crafted than the last.

Jazz, Big Band, Swing | Label: Concord Jazz

One can easily argue that the Basie band, from the moment of its mid-’30s Kansas City emergence, did a great deal to set the course of American popular music as a whole. And now, long after William James Basie’s 1984 death, the band continues as a legacy institution, full of good vibes and a solid professional ethic under the leadership of Scotty Barnhart. All About that Basie mixes it up between older Basie staples (“Sent for You Yesterday,” “April in Paris,” trumpeter Thad Jones’ tart midtempo blues “From One to Another”) and fairly surprising, at times hard-to-recognize arrangements of more modern pop and R&B hits by the likes of Earth, Wind & Fire, Leonard Cohen, and Adele. The guests bring tons of personality to the affair, including singer Kurt Elling in top ballad form, organist Joey DeFrancesco sounding like a big band unto himself, and Stevie Wonder lending a simple and honest poignancy on harmonica.

Sometimes in improvised music there can be a distance between listener and players, a sense you’re sitting back and admiring their interplay and abstraction – but with Szun Waves’ second album, you’re right in there with them, inside the playing, experiencing the absolute joy the three musicians feel as they circle around each other, exploring the spaces they’ve opened up.

Alternative Rock, Art Rock | Country: USA | Label: Kscope

3-disc deluxe book edition which included demos, rarities, outtakes and BBC sessions. Opening with the swirling, cinematic strings of “The Chad Who Loved Me,” Mansun’s debut album, Attack of the Grey Lantern, is anything but a conventional Brit-pop record. Few debut records are this assured, especially when a group is developing such an idiosyncratic, individual style. Mansun recalls many artists — Suede, Manic Street Preachers, Tears for Fears, David Bowie, ABC, Blur, Prince — without sounding exactly like any of them. Attack of the Grey Lantern is a grandiose, darkly seductive blend of new wave and ’90s indie rock, filled with phased guitars, drum machines, and subversive, off-kilter song structures, many of which wind past five minutes. No song is ever quite what it seems — “Mansun’s Only Love Song” balances between soul and fractured pop, “Stripper Vicar” has new wave backing vocals and hard-rock chords, while “Taxloss” marries Suede’s dark glam rock with uneasy psychedelia. It’s an ambitious, even pretentious, record, but Mansun has enough confidence and skill to make it an astonishingly original debut.

Es könnte eine Art Motto sein, was in der Headline zu finden ist. Denn Gitarrist Roland Bischof und Bassist Andreas Kuhlmann kennen sich schon seit Anfang der 80er Jahre, als sie gemeinsam Musik studierten und in der Mensa zwischen Übeeinheiten und Vorlesungen ihre gemeinsame Leidenschaft für Musik von Genesis, Yes, Pink Floyd und anderen Größen des gerade zu Ende gegangenen Jahrzehnts entdeckten.
