He's back! Hard-charging saxophonist James Brandon Lewis's latest, MSM Molecular Systematic Music, is now out and JBL and his quartet tear things up in a live gig at Rote Fabrik in Zurich. The new album reprises the tunes from the earlier Molecular, but the energy is much different, as the gig was the first in a long time for the band. Also new is Sol Expression from a live set in Manila featuring alto saxophonist Rick Countryman and drummer Christian Bucher. Steve Lehman continues to explore his unique approach, building on his previous recording, , and South Korean pianist Eunhye Jeong has much to say on her new release. Vancouver's Hard Rubber Orchestra is almost unique on the Canadian scene—a big band that takes their original music in unexpected directions; their new Iguana is a winner. Lots more great tunes too.
