Kevin Hays & Lionel Loueke: Hope

Read "Hope" reviewed by Geno Thackara

It would have been easy to leave well enough alone. Kevin Hays and Lionel Loueke made a delightful recording the first time around—a most happy clash of hemispheres blending urban jazz and world-folk balladry, crossing upbeat piano with lively scat-singing, frisky African rhythm play and much more. Nonetheless, a slot with Edition Records offered them a ...

Mark Lockheart and Roger Sayer: Salvator Mundi

Read "Salvator Mundi" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Jonny Mansfield: Elftet

Read "Elftet" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Even within the relatively short time span of his burgeoning career, vibraphonist and composer Jonny Mansfield has amassed an impressive array of music prizes. These include the prestigious Kenny Wheeler Jazz Prize from the Royal Academy of Music which made this recording possible. But far from resting on his laurels, Mansfield has been busy gigging throughout ...

Eyolf Dale & André Roligheten: Departure

Read "Departure" reviewed by Roger Farbey

This follow-up to Eyolf Dale's 2018 album Return To Mind, as with its 2016 predecessor, Dale's Wolf Valley, features André Roligheten on tenor sax and clarinet. But crucially, on Departure Dale and Roligheten have dispensed with a rhythm section. This is not a new format since this Norwegian pair had played in a duo configuration under ...

Elliot Galvin: Modern Times

Read "Modern Times" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Following on from Dreamland (2015, Chaos Collective), Punch (Edition, 2016) and The Influencing Machine (Edition, 2018), Elliot Galvin's fourth album is a departure from the previous two. Here he abandons his electronic gadgetry in favour of pure acoustic instrumentation. This was a deliberate move on Galvin's part since the inspiration for album derived from witnessing a ...

Daniel Herskedal: Voyage

Read "Voyage" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Though Norwegian tubist Daniel Herskedal first garnered widespread recognition with Neck of the Woods (Edition Records, 2012)—a sublime collection of folkloric-cum-hymnal meditations with Marius Neset--his unique talent had already won over the jurists at Getxo Jazz in 2004. Two solo albums on the NorCD label made minor ripples before Edition Records came along. Herskedal's next two ...
