A mixed bag of great new sounds. After last year's successful big band outing, Blue Soul, guitarist Dave Stryker is back with his hard-driving, deep grooving B3 organ group on his new recording—Baker's Circle. The Tania Giannouli Trio's unique sounds have been described as Manfred Eicher's dream of a Mediterranean holiday. Tom Swafford and Zachary Swanson deliver a fascinating exploratory free improvisation project. The debut album of Joe Lovano's Trio Tapestry was one of 2019's most talked-about releases. This musical concept is taken to the next level on its amazing second album, Garden of Expression. Japanese pianist/composer Aki Takase fronts a newly formed trio project, Auge, featuring Swiss bassist Christian Weber and German drummer Michael Griener, The ground breaking French label Circum-Disc delivers two great new albums of genre bending jazz.
