Emilia Mårtensson – Ana ★★★★

Babel BDV14126 – Emilia Mårtensson (v), Barry Green (p), Sam Lasserson (p), Adriano Adewale (perc) and Fable String Quartet. Rec. July 2013
Immensely subtle arrangements, exquisitely beautiful songs, and, at its centre, a voice of quite remarkable expressive depth. With her second album, the Londonbased Swedish vocalist Emilia Mårtensson has struck gold. Coloured by the use of strings (the excellent Fable String Quartet) and percussion, and featuring a core band that gets to the very heart of the music, the various streams of Mårtensson’s artistry – Swedish folk songs, singer-songwriters and jazz – are subtly drawn together into a profoundly satisfying whole. Named after her Slovenian grandmother, the otherworldly opening to the title track sees the singer’s voice floating ethereally over beautifully sustained string chords. Three songs written by up-and-coming London-based songsmiths (and friends) – Jamie Doe’s ‘Harvest Moon’, Barnaby Keen’s ‘Learnt from Love’ and Emine Pirhasan’s ‘Tomorrow Can Wait’ – are all outstanding. The touching Swedish folk song ‘När Som Jag Var På Mitt Adertonde År’, a suicide note from a teenage girl, is driven solely by a lonesome bass ostinato and percussion, while Joe Henderson’s ‘Black Narcissus’, with new lyrics penned by the singer, transports you to a melancholic hinterland. Highly recommended.

– Peter Quinn

Island Mentality – Chaos Collective ★★★★

Laura Jurd (t, dir), Jennah Smart (fl), Rob Cope (clt), Simon Marsh, Will Scott, Mike Underwood, Greg Sinclair, Leo Richardson (s), Rob Greenwood, Tom Dennis, Mike Soper, Matt Roberts (t), Raphael Clarkson, Emma Bassett, Rosie Turton, George Wrench (tb), Alex Roth (g), Elliot Galvin (p), Conor Chaplin (el b), Corrie Dick (d), Lauren Kinsella (v) and Mark Lockheart (ss). Rec. July 2013

If there’s one thing the trumpeter Laura Jurd’s Chaos Orchestra doesn’t have, it’s an island mentality, the title she’s given to the debut CD. Made up of the Chaos Collective’s mostly Trinity Laban Conservatoire alumni, a relaxed and open-minded approach to creative music making is the young 20-piece ensemble’s calling card. Hotly tipped experimental Irish singer Lauren Kinsella is among the guests and she sings with folky assurance on Jurd’s musical setting of a John Donne poem; there are echoes of Ellington in the arrangements for ‘Oh So Beautiful’, and a more free improvising sonic approach is demonstrated on another Jurd-Kinsella collaboration ‘Horses for Courses’.

Meanwhile, the spirit of the hit British 1980s ensemble Loose Tubes is never far away, on Jurd’s ‘Giant’s Causeway’ and saxophonist Simon Marsh’s Township-ish ‘Yoh’, and Loose Tubes saxophonist Mark Lockheart is indeed here to contribute the uplifting Gil Evans-esque ‘Strange Attractors’, his 2012 commission for the orchestra on which he also plays soprano sax. Guitarist Alex Roth’s ‘The Charm of Impossibilities’ comes the closest to contemporary classical music. Chaos co-founder and upcoming pianist Elliot Galvin’s Cecil Taylorderived solo and the piece’s eerily sparse neo-noir-ish textures suitably round off a thoroughly engaging, versatile set of new music.

– Selwyn Harris
