Recent CD reviews

December 11, 2017

Last time I compiled them here back in July, I found I’d been reviewing a CD a month for LondonJazznews. Seems like that’s now a habit, as there are now half a dozen more to mention (most recent first). Maybe you’ll find an idea for Christmas…?

Latest from a superb piano trio.

One you might not come across elsewhere. A duo of South African piano players exploring their own jazz tradition.

 

Rudresh Mahanthappa’s Indo-Pak CoalitionAgrima.

Shades of Mahavishnu here, I thought.

 

Marius NesetCircle of Chimes.

Neset is amazing in general, but some other folks liked this one more than I did.
