First out of the mixed bag of audio treats this week (it's Halloween after all!) is a track from Oliver Lake's first recording 43 years ago Ntu: The Point from Which Creation Begins. I haven't played Oliver in a while and that seemed like a good place to begin catching up. Adam Rudolph's epic project, Ragmala, combines his Go: Organic Orchestra with the Brooklyn Raga Massive for a 40-musician rhythm-rich set of music. Smaller groups debuting new releases are Swiss saxophonist Christoph Gallio's Day and Taxi, rising star bassist Harish Raghavan, and drummer Devin Gray. There's great contrast between two Italian bands: bassist Giuseppe Millaci's trio and the band Ghost Horse. Finally, a multi-generational band from America's southern States demonstrates the bond of creative music. Dopolarians matches up vets like Kidd Jordan, Alvin Fielder and William Parker with some younger cats for an envelope-pushing session.
