There are some very creative folks hanging about this week, headed by one of the more unique recordings of the year so far—Kaijū Eats Cheeseburgers—by the uncategorizable trio from France led by drummer/percussionist Sylvain Darrifourcq with saxophonist Manuel Hermia and cellist Valentin Ceccaldi. It's very different but very exciting stuff. Also new from Europe and more tilting the idiom are the trio of Swedish pianist Lisa Ullen with bassist Joe Williamson and drummer Erik Carlsson, young guns pianist Elias Stemeseder and drummer Max Andrzejewski together, a pair of new releases from trombonist Samuel Blaser who seems to have an unending supply of new music, and the Urs Blochlinger Revisited ensemble keeping alive the music of the late saxophonist. And yes, as a matter of fact, there is more music from Argentina.
