Second part of this week's exploration of new and upcoming releases [for the first part ]. Here we focus on the new works of drummers Chad Taylor, with his trio and in the duo with James Brandon Lewis and Matt Wilson, the global jazz of the cult band Aka Moon and South African pianist Nduduzo Makhathini... and some obliquely intriguing offerings by pianist Roberto Negro, the Onyx Collective and saxophonist Rudresh Mahanthappa.

Happy listening!
