Goran Kajfes Tropiques: Enso

Read "Enso" reviewed by Mark Corroto

In the 1970s, along with the rise in FM radio and stereo sound, a phenomena called “headphones-only album rock" was devised. A DJ might play all 26 minutes of Pink Floyd's “Shine on You Crazy Diamond" or John Coltrane's version of “My Favorite Things," at 42 minutes. In the same spirit we find Swedish trumpeter Goran ...

Angles 9: Disappeared Behind the Sun

Read "Disappeared Behind the Sun" reviewed by John Sharpe

On the sixth release from reedman Martin Küchen's mid-sized Angles ensemble, all the winning traits so evident on previous outings are still present and correct: heart wrenching melodies, huge foot-tapping riffs, sweeping chorales and adventurous raw soloing, not least by the leader himself. Many of the same top notch players remain on board, notably trombonist Mats ...

Oddjob: JAZZOO

Read "JAZZOO" reviewed by James Pearse

With five diversely themed full-length albums (all Grammy-nominated) under its collective belt, it was anyone's guess as to where Swedish jazz ensemble Oddjob would take its music next.

Oddjob's last release Clint (ACT, 2010) saw the quartet rework, reimagine and 'jazzify' classic Western themes by Ennio Morricone, Lalo Schifrin, et al. JAZZOO (Headspin Recordings, ...

Davor Kajfeš: Dialogues With Scriabin

Read "Dialogues With Scriabin" reviewed by James Pearse

You'd be forgiven for being unfamiliar with the work of Russian composer Alexander Scriabin (1872-1915) or, indeed, Croatian jazz pianist Davor Kajfeš. Sadly neither one has been widely heard outside of their respective--or adopted--countries to date. We can celebrate, then, that the release of Dialogues With Scriabin (Headspin Recordings, 2013) brings the music of these two ...

Svenska Kaputt: Svenska Kaputt

Read "Svenska Kaputt" reviewed by James Pearse

Svenska Kaputt is a hybrid band comprising acclaimed musicians from Stockholm, Sweden's busy jazz and rock scenes. The debut recording, Svenska Kaputt, is a heady brew of jazz exploration (influenced by artists active in the late 1960s) with that of psychedelic and progressive rock (bands from the late 1960s and early 1970s).

While saxophonist Jonas ...

Nils Berg Cinemascope: Popmotion

Read "Popmotion" reviewed by James Pearse

There are concept albums and then there is concept music. While progressive rock and pop artists habitually follow a specific theme or develop a story over the course of an album, some musicians offer entirely new models of composition. Popmotion, the debut album by Swedish trio Nils Berg Cinemascope, falls unquestionably into the latter category.
