Eric Dolphy – Conversations With The Unseen

With all the recent coverage of jazz in the mainstream media it seems that those casting a look back across its history have been neglectful of one of the music's key figures: the extraordinary multiinstrumentalist Eric Dolphy. His death, aged 36 on 29 June 1964, cut short a rare and highly original talent that, in less than four years, had seen him record a number of definitive jazz albums, not least his own singular Blue Note classic, Out to Lunch!. Drawing on the testimony of legends, such as John Coltrane and Charles Mingus, and with the forthcoming release of Musical Prophet – The Expanded 1963 New York Studio Sessions on Resonance Records, Stuart Nicholson is optimistic for a redressing of the balance and a reassessment of Dolphy's unique contributions to jazz

Steam Down – The Sermon Is Love

If 2018 has been the year jazz elbowed its way back into mainstream culture, then Steam Down, the south London night where Kamasi Washington comes to jam and the atmosphere is unrivalled, has become the new jazz gen's sweaty hotbed of invention.

Ingrid Laubrock - Sonic Spells

Having upped roots from London to Brooklyn a decade ago, the idiosyncratic saxophonist and composer Ingrid Laubrock has gradually made a name for herself on the New York experimental improv scene with a prolific, critically-acclaimed run of solo albums and as a bandmember of avant-garde visionary Anthony Braxton. Inspired by Braxton and last century New Music composers, she makes a grand entry into the epic world of orchestral composition with new release Contemporary Chaos Practices. Selwyn Harris gets the low-down on her inspirational journey from Germany to New York via London and how she's finding compositional order from societical chaos

Tyshawn Sorey - Deep Listening

Archie Shepp - Gospel Truths

In the midst of the rise of the far right-wing in America and Europe, Archie Shepp renews his stand against injustice and oppression. One of the most politically conscious and outspoken figures in the history of black music, whose classic albums on Impulse! denounced racism and inequality, the 81-year-old saxophonist and vocalist brings an emotionally-charged show to this year's EFG London Jazz Festival. Art Songs & Spirituals celebrates the jazz and gospel traditions with a fine cast of collaborators, including AACM legend, keyboardist and vocalist Amina Claudine Myers. Kevin Le Gendre found that both artists have much to say about the broad church of African-American music
