This show is loaded with new releases. My favourite record label, Clean Feed, continually provides excellent music and I dip into the latest batch (read our reviews), sampling new albums by Italian bassist Danilo Gallo & Dry Dark Tears, Lisbon's Garfo and edgy trumpeter Luis Vicente & his trio. ESP-Disk's place in the history of jazz record labels is well-established; that trend continues with new ones from the NY quartet, East Axis, and a trio of Michael Bisio, Kirk Knuffke & Fred Lonberg-Holm. From Buenos Aires' busy Ears & Eyes, there's new music from pianist Ernesto Jodos with Mark Helias & Barry Altschul. The ultra-rhythmic side of things is covered nicely by Washington D.C.'s Anansi Trio and the Munich big band of Hammond organist Matthias Bublath. If his track doesn't get some body parts moving, call 911 now!
