'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 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.

Thème de ce quatrième opus, le « Jazz Guitar » ! Dès la fin des années trente, les guitaristes peuvent enfin, dans les orchestres de jazz, grâce à l’amplification, jouer à part entière leur rôle de solistes, à armes égales avec les trompettistes, trombonistes, saxophonistes, et pianistes. Dans le premier opus on retrouve donc bien évidemment le Solo Flight de Charlie Christian qui constitue un modèle idéal que suivent, analysent et respectent encore aujourd’hui nombre de guitaristes ; Wes Montgomery, Jimmy Raney, Billy Bauer - que l’on peut écouter ici - lui doivent beaucoup…

The idea of making an album featuring music by Krenek and Schumann had been on my mind for a long time. In 2012, I was able to discuss by concept with Gladys Krenek in Palm Springs. We reamined in regular contact over the next few years to develop the concept for this album. Gladys Krenek gave her full support for the project which has always been very close to my heart. (Tatjana Masurenko) On her latest album, Masurenko presents her comparison between Schumann's and Krenek's works. Both composers have had similar interest in music and literature and to both of them, music was a kind of therapy.

Once upon a time, there lived a powerful magician with darkness in his heart. He was the greatest sorcerer in all the land, and he used his abilities for deeds both evil and strange. In a rare moment of weakness and boredom, the magician tossed his magical book to a panhandling pauper, inviting the pauper to be enveloped into the magician’s own unique, twisted dimension inside the book itself.

The seventh album from Israeli-born saxophonist and clarinetist Anat Cohen, 2015's Luminosa showcases the N.Y.C.-based artist's eclectic mix of acoustic post-bop and Brazilian choro-influenced jazz. The album follows up her similarly inclined 2012 effort, Claroscuro, and provides a further showcase for her adroit improvisational skills and layered, sophisticated arrangements. Joining Cohen here is a bevy of equally gifted musicians, including keyboardist Jason Linder, bassist Joe Martin, and drummer Daniel Freedman. Luminosa also features a handful of guest artists including guitarist Romero Lubambo, percussionist Gilmar Gomes, and accordion player Vitor Goncalves. As with most of Cohen's recordings, Luminosa is a highly engaging, sophisticated, and romantic album.

"If I were responsible for an album as good as this, I’d be shouting about it but the package lacks information apart from recording and personnel details plus track listings. There does however seem to be a hidden structure and possibly a narrative to the 12 tracks. The music isn’t lapel-grabbing but it does speak persuasively and in a variety of mood, with a spirit of basic consensus that allows the tunes to develop with everyone making significant statements.

Anat Cohen's music is literally all over the map. Across her previous six albums, Cohen has explored the sounds of America, Brazil, France, Cuba, South Africa, and her homeland, Israel; she's addressed the work of John Coltrane, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Benny Goodman, Abdullah Ibrahim, Sam Cooke, Jacques Brel, Edith Piaf, Louis Armstrong, Ernesto Lecuona, Luiz Bonfa, and numerous others; and she's delivered original material that speaks to her ceaseless globetrotting. Here, she continues to explore a wide range of music, but there's a bit more focus on a single locale.
