Kenny Garrett - Spontaneous Reaction

 
Active Image
Kenny Garrett releases the first live album of his career this month, a quite remarkable addition to his discography stretching back to the 1980s. With free jazz legend Pharoah Sanders joining him, Garrett makes an intriguing sidestep with this project away from his recent Far Eastern and Coltrane preoccupations. Interview :: Kevin Le Gendre

Vijay Iyer - Post-modern Meltdown

Pianist Vijay Iyer cuts a singular presence on the American jazz scene. With a cerebral, but accessible post-modern style, he has made his presence felt with a run of albums featuring his own cast of collaborators. Best known for his work with altoist Rudresh Mahanthappa and Mike Ladd he won Jazzwise album of the year in 2004 with In What Language? and since then has continued to craft a singular style that makes him stand out on the sometimes hidebound American scene. Kevin Le Gendre talks to Vijay ahead of the release of his latest albums Tragicomic and Door with Fieldwork and his London Jazz Festival appearance later in the year.

Bobo Stenson - Inner Vision

Bobo Stenson is one of the most revered European pianists with a track record that includes key recordings with Jan Garbarek, Charles Lloyd and Tomasz Stanko. As his latest solo disc Cantando is released he talks to Stuart Nicholson about his early days in Sweden, the distinctly European nature of his approach to jazz and the way the music has developed over the course of his career.

Ingrid Laubrock - Stolen Moments

Saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock has within a short period of time become part of the progressive adventurous stream of jazz coming out of the London scene centred around the F-IRE Collective. With her new group she this month debuts new album Sleepthief in the company of forward-thinking American drummer Tom Rainey and pianist Liam Noble. Duncan Heining talks to Ingrid about her fast-developing career and how she sees the direction of her music in a rapidly changing musical landscape.
