MAC Power Trio – Delicate Thunder

Jazzwise-November2016-Cover350The triumvirate of saxophonist/bass clarinetist David Murray, pianist Geri Allen and drummer Terri Lyne Carrington are turning the concept of a 'power trio' on its head with their latest project. Ahead of their EFG London Jazz Festival headline appearance this month, Kevin Le Gendre spoke to them about their quietly acoustic modes of subversion, captured on their long-player Perfection, its title taken from an unrecorded Ornette Coleman song, with the latter icon's revolutionary spirit inspiring the group's muscular music

Bugge Wesseltoft – Professor Bugge

The Norwegian nu-jazz invasion of the mid-1990s owed much to the plucky maneuverings of the questing Jazzland imprint, that celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. Early releases from Bugge Wesseltoft and Beady Belle were to place Europe on the jazz map once more and the label's influence pervades through a crop of current sonic alchemists. Ahead of the label's Kings Place residency at the London Jazz Festival, Stuart Nicholson spoke to Wesseltoft about the evolution of Jazzland, the roster he helped create along with Sten Nilsen, and the ongoing relevance of its tradition-meetselectronic innovation to the contemporary scene

Laura Jurd’s Dinosaur – Queen of the Stone Age

October-Cover-320Prodigiously-talented trumpet-player and Chaos Collective constant Laura Jurd has just released Together, As One, the dynamically varicoloured debut of her band, Dinosaur. This talent-laden behemoth includes the wildly imaginative keyboardist Elliot Galvin, inventive bassist Conor Chaplin and Afro-centric drum firebrand Corrie Dick. Nick Hasted talked to Jurd about her idyllic upbringing in the relative rural remoteness of a Hampshire village, the influence of Miles’ electric period on the quartet’s sometimes punkish grooves and how she’s ready to rage against post-Brexit bleakness
