There are indeed some adventuresome artists in this edition of One Man's Jazz, although I pilfered the title for the show from the title of the Welcome To Adventure Vol. 2 by Daniel Carter, Matthew Shipp, William Parker & Gerald Cleaver. So far, their first volume has been the best-selling album in the history of 577 Records. This second volume may just outsell its predecessor. The music is outstanding. A trio with piano, cornet and electronics sounds like it's on an adventurous path as well and that's exactly what Yuko Fujiyama, Graham Haynes & Ikue Mori achieve on their new Quiet Passion. It's very original. You'll also hear new releases Italy's AnaphoraMichael Sarian, Portugal's André B. Silva, Argentina's Santiago Lacabe and Spanish bassist Manel Fortia, plus music from the new Ornette Coleman box set, Genesis of Genius: The Contemporary Albums.
