As everyone thinks of year’s end, realise I’ve not rounded up CD reviews here since January… So here are a few I wrote about for the excellent folks at LondonJazzNews. This isn’t a “best of 2019” as I don’t hear enough to do that (and seeing the flood of stuff on offer I wonder if anyone does?), but enjoyed all of these.
A collection of tunes left over from the great piano player’s collaboration with Ornette. Review here.
Latest from one of the most interesting ensembles led from Bristol.
One for anyone (like me) with a weakness for solo bass recitals
Strong showing on Bristol-led piano trio’s second release.
Fabulous live band; great recording.
New piano trio offering from one of our finest UK players.
A concert of Parker’s impressive jazz tribute to Debussy, captured for repeat enjoyment.
Became mildly obsessed with this one, and still listen to it quite often. Magnificent trio.
Just eight from the torrent, but all worth investigating.
