Lyder Øvreås Røed: The Moon Doesn't Drink

Read "The Moon Doesn't Drink" reviewed by Chris May

A promising own-name debut from the Norwegian trumpeter, Lyder Øvreås Røed's The Moon Doesn't Drink has both feet planted in analogue-era jazz yet sounds wholly modern.

Jan Garbarek / The Hilliard Ensemble: Remember Me, My Dear

Read "Remember Me, My Dear" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

When Norwegian saxophonist Jan Garbarek first collaborated with The Hilliard Ensemble (a British vocal quartet that specialized in early music) it was an experiment, done at the suggestion of ECM founder/producer Manfred Eicher. No-one anticipated a huge crossover hit, but Officium (ECM, 1994) was so successful that it was followed by Mnemosyne (ECM, 1999) and Officium ...

Read "Three Crowns" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

For its sophomore ECM release this Polish/Norwegian quartet titled the album after the Trzy Korony summit of the Pieniny mountain range in the south of Poland.

Daniele Sepe: The Cat with the Hat

Read "The Cat with the Hat" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Dopo le divertenti e divertite avventure di Capitan Capitone e della sua ciurma, Daniele Sepe torna al jazz più proprio e lo fa con un giusto omaggio a uno dei suoi ispiratori: Gato Barbieri, scomparso tre anni fa e raramente ricordato quanto avrebbe meritato. Forse, come accenna lo stesso Sepe, per il fatto di essersi un ...
