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.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
