You can always count on Clean Feed Records for great music, and this episode features some tunes from recent releases on the Portuguese label's catalogue. Saxophonist Avram Fefer adds Marc Ribot to his usual trio and the results on Testament are fantastic. Pianist Zack Clarke steps back to a traditional piano trio format, but the music is anything but traditional. He twists the format into a musical pretzel. English trumpeter Tom Arthurs mixes his usually sublime style with electronist Isambard Khroustaliov and percussionist Julian Sartorius, while drummer Harris Eisenstadt fronts his Canada Day group—a quartet this time—that is easily up to his high standard of composition and improvisation.

Also new this episode two wonderfully creative duets: pianist Satoko Fujii with bassist Joe Fonda and saxophonist Adam Pieronczyk with Miroslav Vitous. Toss in the Austrian heavy bottom band, Shake Stew, and your pot will indeed be overflowing with good music.

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!
