We start 2020 where we left off in 2019, exploring great new releases. In this segment we feature music ranging from the upcoming release of the Afrobeat ambassadors Antibalas, who are turning 20 this year, to a previously unreleased superb 1975 live performance by Pharoah Sanders. In the process we take a look at the vibrant Swedish scene with the music of Oddjob and its pianist Daniel Karlsson, two recent albums featuring saxophonist Greg Ward, a very original take on Cole Porter and the contagious music of Michael Mwenso and the Horne Electric Band together with one of our favorite albums of 2019, Everybody Wins by Amendola vs. Blades.

Happy listening!
