Ian Shaw - Safe And Sound

Ian Shaw, the leading male jazz singer of his generation in the UK, follows up his expertly pitched Joni Mitchell songbook album from 2006 with a brand new album released this month full of original material. The themes of the album, he tells Andy Robson, involve meditations on Shaw’s notions of his own sense of place, the process of growing older and above all, love

Matthew Bourne - Fun Boy Free

Pianist Matthew Bourne last year released a remarkable live album recorded in the Norwegian city of Molde. It provided a fascinating glimpse into the world view of the Leeds improv and jazz scene kingpin. The Molde album was the latest milestone in a career trajectory that saw an early peak five years ago with the prodigious flow of his debut record The Electric Dr M for the Sound label. It’s year zero, however, for Bourne as he now unveils the debut of his trio Bourne/Davis/Kane.

Lizz Wright - Garden Of Earthly Delights

When Lizz Wright debuted with Salt five years ago it was clear even then that the jazz world had found a new unique talent even if the album was ostensibly a strongly gospel-rooted affair. By the time of her second album Dreaming Wide Awake, when she was on the cover of Jazzwise for the first time, awash with arresting bottleneck backgrounds and intuitive acoustic and jazz-into-folk settings it was clear that new musical directions were being pursued and that she was becoming a significant jazz singer.

Outhouse - Free your mind

Outhouse makes its eponymous debut next month with the Anglo-French quartet joined by singer Jeanne Added and tama drummer Kaw Secka. The group grew out of Loop collective sessions in Kentish Town influenced partly by its empathy with the Parisian Hask collective scene and the burgeoning confidence of the new wave of post-Polar Bear London bands pouring out of the London music colleges.

Chick Corea and Gary Burton - The Sound of Silence

More than 35 years have passed since Chick Corea and Gary Burton came together to record the classic album Crystal Silence. The two have now recorded once again, this time for Concord to produce a two-CD set with a big difference as the first disc of The New Crystal Silence finds Corea and Burton performing with a symphony orchestra using new arrangements by saxophonist Tim Garland.
