Read "Jim Black, Mario Santos, William Parker, Dave Sewelson and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


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.

Tobias Delius / Olie Brice / Mark Sanders: Somersaults

Read "Somersaults" reviewed by John Sharpe


Any lineup which contains reedman Tobias Delius deserves attention. Born in England to an Argentinean father and a German mother, Delius was a longtime staple of the adventurous Amsterdam scene before his relocation to Berlin in 2007, though he's still a fixture with the ICP Orchestra.
