Slowly Rolling Camera: Where the Streets Lead

Read "Where the Streets Lead" reviewed by Chris May


You might imagine jazz musicians are well suited to run record companies, for risk taking and creativity are fundamental to both activities.

Jasper Høiby: Fellow Creatures

Read "Fellow Creatures" reviewed by Roger Farbey


Taking a break from his highly (and justifiably) praised trio Phronesis, virtuoso bassist Jasper Høiby described the rationale for Fellow Creatures thus: “it's been a dream of mine for a while to start a larger ensemble and to have the option of writing for two melody instruments as well as the trio."
