Highlights: Captivity, the new recording by saxophonist Caroline Davis is a pointedly social justice album focused on creating reflection, interrogation and amplification of the essential conversation around incarceration, the prison industrial complex & abolition. It's a very powerful project. Another excellent alto player, Germany's Angelika Niescier hooked up with premier cellist Tomeka Reid and drummer Savannah Harris for their new release, Beyond Dragons, and it's one of the best of the year. Another trio from that pool of transplanted Cuban musicians in NYC released Jardineros, an absolute burner from saxophonist Hery Paz, drummer Francisco Mela and percussionist Roman Diaz. Other new items debuting this episode come from Toronto bassist Josh Arcoleo, the Eclectic Maybe Band from England, pot stirrer Alabaster de Plume, also from England, and a threesome of the finest from Denmark—saxophonist Jesper Zeuthen, pianist Jacob Anderskov and drummer Anders Vestergaard. Plus a little blues from the late and great Johnny Adams.
