Is it too early to choose a "best-of" for 2020. I know it's only January, but drummer Jim Black has released an absolute killer of an album with pianist Elias Stemeseder and bassist Thomas Morgan that is an outstanding piece of work. Reckon came out on the Intakt label from Switzerland in January, so be on the lookout for it. Black is as unpredictable and unique as ever, Stemeseder shows why he's one of the most interesting younger pianists, and Morgan plays with ferocious energy. Also new this week, Portugal's Quarteto Mário Santos with Núvem, William Parker and Dave Sewelson and friends, the very avant SLD Trio from Argentina, and German drummer Nathan Ott with a very cool version of Ornette's "Lonely Woman." There's a lot more great tunes too, including Jim Hobbs & The Fully Celebrated Orchestra, Tomasz Stanko, the Australian Art Orchestra and Ben Goldberg.
