There are a lot of superlatives for the playing of saxophonist James Brandon Lewis floating about these days, and they're all well-deserved. JBL continues to make great music. His new Transfiguration with his quartet of Aruán Ortiz, Brad Jones & Chad Taylor—out on the Intakt label from Switzerland---keeps the momentum rolling. Mark this one down for another best-of. Drummer Federico Ughi is a principal owner at 577 Records, and his new Infinite Cosmos Is Calling You, You, You Volume 1 is proof that the boss has chops; it's a terrific set of improvisation. Master pianist Matthew Shipp is so excited about his trio's work on em>New Concepts In Piano Jazz Trio that he's now questioning whether they've hit a pinnacle in piano trio explorations, and is there anything more for them to accomplish. Also new this week are albums from English violinist Theo May and saxophonists Rick Countryman, Fall Raye, andSylvain Cathala & Print. To celebrate Black History Month, each show in February will open with music reflecting on Black History.
