Luke Stewart Silt Trio, John Escreet, Natsuki Tamura/Jim Black & Matt Pavolka

Click the play button to listen

Bassist Luke Stewart has become rather indispensable to the creative music scene in the past few years. That big unmistakable sound drives important bands like Irreversible Entanglements, Heroes Are Gang Leaders, his own Exposure Quintet and his Silt Trio. That trio is the setting for his new Unknown Rivers. It's a don't-miss-this-one recording. Other features in this episode: Matt Pavolka who has reassembled his band which featured—and still does—guitarist Ben Monder. Disciplinary Architecture is classic Pavolka; freest of the free trumpeters Natsuki Tamura reunited with the wonderful drums of Jim Black for NatJim, while trumpet master Wadada Leo Smith joined Danish pianist Soren Norbo and drummer Kresten Osgood in Norbo's living room to record their new album; and John Escreet's LA-based trio with LA natives Eric Revis and Damion Reid sizzles on The Epicenter Of Your Dreams, abetted by the always brilliant saxophone of Mark Turner. So much great music coming out!
