Vanity reposting interlude: Still reviewing for LondonJazzNews – still about one a month – so here are the half dozen or so I tried to say something sensible about in the first months of 2018.

Andreas Schaerer – A Novel of Anomaly – link

Slightly more relaxed session than usual from the astonishing Swiss voice artist.

 

Greg Cordez – Last Things Last – link

Beautiful writing and playing from Bath-based bassist, and a stellar NY band.

Michael Wollny Trio Live – Wartburg, Trio – Oslo. – link

Double offering from the mercurial pianist, who ACT continue to document generously. Quite right too.

 

Mathias Eick – Ravensburg – link

Another dreamy offering from the trumpeter – the contrasting flavour imparted by a different violinist, compared with his previous, is fascinating.

 

Bokani Dyer Trio – Neo Native – link

Love South African piano, and this guy is developing an interesting take on several traditions.

 

Jure Pukl – Doubtless – Link

A formidable two-tenor quartet here.
