Harry Beckett - Mixing It

Sample ImageA longstanding presence on the London jazz scene, trumpeter Harry Beckett has kept his music fresh over a long career and none more so than on his latest release which invites reggae and dance music influences to happily live alongside his modal jazz flavours. Duncan Heining talks to Harry about his current preoccupations and looks back on a career stretching back to the 1960s.

Dave Holland - Bass instinct

Arguably the most high profile jazz bassist on the planet and one of the most famous English jazz exports, Dave Holland returns this month with a new album which builds on his substantial career as a leader. Duncan Heining catches up with him on tour with Herbie Hancock and discovers the path Dave has taken in jazz since those early days back in England playing traditional jazz and carving his own career on a very different jazz scene in London.

Julian Siegel - New York State of Mind

Julian Siegel teams up with top American musicians Joey Baron and Greg Cohen for a new CD release following successful tours together and ahead of their latest live dates. One of the busiest saxophonists around, Siegel talks to Andy Robson about the genesis of the group, the different approach of the Americans and his own new perceptions.

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
