This week we put together an energy-packed playlist to boost us towards the finish line of the winter season. At the heart of the show is electric jazz, from a rather guitar-centric set of albums. They oscillate between the shredding power of Hedvig Mollestad or Marbin, and the legacy of the New York Downtown scene that has emerged from the vaults of Wayne Horvitz with echoes coming back to us from across the world; exhibit A: the Belgian band Echoes of Zoo; exhibit B: French drummer Anne Pacéo's project Circles. A second taste of two current favorites, the Pino Palladino-Blake Mills collaboration and the Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio, Chris Potter's compelling one-man-show, the intricate philigrane of Shijin and Tamil Rogeon's electro-spiritual jazz adventures complete this journey in our stashes of new and upcoming releases.
