Adam Bałdych and the Baltic Gang – Imaginary Room ★★★★

ACT 9532-2 | Adam Baldych (vln), Verneri Pohjola (t), Marius Neset (ts), Jacob Karlzon (p), Lars Danielsson (b, clo) and Morten Lund (d). Rec. 11-13 March 2012, Hansa Studio, Berlin

It says a lot for the development of European jazz that a genuine ‘all-star’ band can be assembled from the Baltic States to feature the playing of the young Polish violin virtuoso Adam Bałdych. With a superb rhythm section comprising Jacob Karlzon and Lars Danielsson from Sweden and Morten Lund from Denmark, plus the young Finnish trumpet star Verneri Pohjola and the fast rising tenor sax star Marius Neset from Norway, Bałdych is in fast company and responds with playing that speaks less of virtuosity, more a desire to get to the heart of each compositions meaning, but nevertheless on a piece like ‘Village Underground’ he leaves you in no doubt he is a player the jazz world should watch. Well arranged, conceived an executed, every player respects the mood and integrity of Bałdych’s compositions, and from the subtle, undulating tom-tom pulse of ‘The Imaginary Room’ to ‘Million Miles Away’ with its gentle, yet compelling duet between Neset and Pohjola, this is an album to savour.

– Stuart Nicholson

Neneh Cherry/The Thing – The Cherry Thing ★★★★

Smalltown Supersound STS229CD | Neneh Cherry (v), Mats Gustafsson (s), Ingebrigt Håker Flaten (b, el b) and Paal Nilssen-Love (d). Rec. date not given

To those who know her only from 1988’s ‘Buffalo Stance’ or 1994’s ‘7 Seconds’, her duet with Senegal’s Youssou N’Dour, the decision of Scandinavian skronk trio The Thing to team up with Neneh Cherry might seem odd. It begins to look inspired, however, when you remember her role in post-punk groups like The Slits and Rip, Rig + Panic, and the fact that her stepfather was Don Cherry… after whose 1966 track Gustafsson and co take their name. Together, the four-piece tackle a predictably unpredictable songbook, from the rapper MF Doom to The Stooges via Ornette Coleman. Punk in spirit but less macho than The Thing, it sounds like nothing so much as Art Ensemble Of Chicago’s ‘Theme De Yoyo’ – if it featured a rap about getting ‘more cheese than Doritos’. Some have already put Cherry Thing forward as an album of the year contender. No quibbles here.

– Marcus O’Dair

Avishai Cohen – Duende ★★★★

Blue Note | Avishai Cohen (b) and Nitai Hershkovits (p). Rec. not stated

The charismatic double bassist Avishai Cohen has proved one of the biggest contemporary draws on the jazz club and international festival circuit over the last decade. Having previously concentrated on piano trio albums for his label Razdaz, over the past few years Cohen has released two albums on Blue Note, in which his sensuous signature blend of folk, classical and jazz turned from sounding very much like ‘song’ to actually being ‘song’. But on his third for the label Duende Cohen recovers his instrumental jazz and improvising instincts in the intimate, naked setting of a duo. His partner for the recording is the young just-out-of-teens pianist Nitai Hershkovits who Cohen discovered in a random visit to a café in downtown Tel Aviv (where he has fairly recently relocated after over 15 years in New York) in which he was playing solo on a cheap keyboard. The biggest surprise for Cohen fans will be the presence of a few jazz standards among the originals.

It wouldn’t be the first time that Monk’s ‘Criss Cross’, Cole Porter’s ‘All of You’ and possibly Coltrane’s ‘Central Park West’ have been recorded for the legendary label but it’s a rare occasion for Cohen to feature jazz’s golden oldies at all. This isn’t however a sign that Cohen has gone all traditional on us. Hershkovits, who plays with an attractive tone and elegant poise, is very much on the same wavelength with regard to Cohen’s folky Mediterranean and classical roots, and the way he tackles something like ‘All of You’ is how you imagine a contemporary pianist such as Brad Mehldau might do it. Although Cohen’s bass has its usual striking percussive presence, the tone of the recording is understated with Hershkovits, a less demonstrative pianist than Cohen’s previous young sidemen Sam Barsh and Shai Maestro, possessing an irresistible calm. It’s up there with Cohen’s very best.

– Selwyn Harris
