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…?

Django Bates’ BelovedThe Study of Touch.DBBTSOT.jpg

Latest from a superb piano trio.


Barry Altschul 3Dom Factor Live in Krakow

Freewheeling trio, also featuring a favourite sax player, John Irabagon.


Katherine Tagg and Andre PetersenWhere Worlds Collide


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.


Fred HerschOpen Book.


Simply, a master at work.
