Load 'em up and play 'em. That's kind of how it's going these days, with so many interesting new recordings making their way to the show. Ohad Talmor's Ornette Coleman-inspired Back To The Land is already showing up on best-of-lists. He came across some unreleased rehearsal recordings by Ornette & Lee Konitz in Konitz's apartment after he passed awsy, and that's the music that is the basis of his new album. (Note: release date of the Talmor release is pending.) Myra Melford's Fire & Water Quintet drew considerable praise for their debut album last year, and their second, Hear The Light Singing, might be even better. Saxophonist/poet Roy Nathanson's 82 Days recreates some of the music he played from his balcony for 82 straight days of pandemic lock-down, while Slovenian pianist Miha Gantar returns with another 5-cd release for Clean Feed, less than a year before an earlier 5-disc release. There's also new music from Norwegian quartet I.P.A., Peter Brötzmann with drummer Sabu Toyozumi, Cene Resnik & the Acamar Trio from Slovenia, and more and more. Don't sleep on this edition of One Man's Jazz.
