Martin Schulte Quartet featuring Frederik Köster: Walking Distance

Read "Walking Distance" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

German jazz guitarist Martin Schulte opens this excellent quartet outing with the title tune. The title must be a play on the prominent walking bass line provided by bassist Matthias Nowak, but it's also a catchy, swinging piece with dramatic, unexpected stops (as well as a showcase for guest trumpeter Frederik Köster).

Paragon: Cerca

Read "Cerca" reviewed by Phil Barnes

The art of conversation is surely dying. Too many people prepared to shout out the first thought that comes into their empty head, or repeat some banal corporate half-truth intended to drown out dissenting views.

Ehwald displayed ...

Monome: Monome

Read "Monome" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Monome, a piano-led trio from Pisa, shares its name with the Monome, a computer interface device popular with makers of electronic music. Whether this is deliberate or coincidental is unclear, but Monome the band makes acoustic music without the need for its electronic namesake. Its eponymous debut album, recorded in late 2011 and early 2012, features ...
