KT Reeder: 2021 Jazz

Read "2021 Jazz" reviewed by David Burke


Jazz has always defied convention, its improvisational nature eliciting as much opprobrium as ovation. Ironically, given the libertarian philosophy that underpins it, those who play, critique or listen aren't always so receptive to change, to boundaries being forced, to new territory being mapped out. Remember, there were many who didn't dig bebop at first, many others ...

Then again, the artist's Discus label offers a huge discography devised on dissimilar, futuristic and unorthodox outcomes.

Keith Tippett: The Unlonely Raindancer

Read "The Unlonely Raindancer" reviewed by Matt Parker


Some people find that solo piano albums, no matter how highly regarded they may be, struggle to hold their attention for a full listen.
