2021 is proving to be the gift that keeps giving for new jazz releases. Curtis Andrews returns after a long break from releasing music to deliver an album which is rich in rhythmic exploration, modal and raga-based melodies, and some truly virtuosic performances. There's also the debut from Martin Frieberg, Dennis Gonzalez Ataraxia Trio's second offering, a new one from Tom Rainey's excellent Obbligato band, and a selection of other new albums which ably demonstrate the wide variety of music available in the World of Jazz.
