Fondant les inspirations de Cuba, de La Nouvelle-Orléans, du Harlem de Duke Ellington et de l'Afrique au creuset du jazz, au mouvement du swing et à sa propre poésie, le pianiste franco-israélien, nommé "Révélation" aux Victoires du jazz 2015, présente enfin le second chapitre de son projet "Modern Times". Avec un groupe élargi pour l'occasion aux dimensions d'un quintet avec clarinette, saxophone alto et percussions… voici "The Parade"

Providing a foretaste of his album "Music Is My Home", Raphaël Imbert has now released "Prologue", a 10'' collector "gatefold" vinyl. Alongside emblematic musicians (Big Ron Hunter, Alabama Slim etc.) and young up-coming French stars (first and foremost Anne Paceo), the saxophonist takes on the role of a top-notch ethno-musicologist, escorting us along the roads of the American "Deep South". With an unparalleled knowledge of groove, he comes within touching distance of the roots of blues, jazz and soul.

Stan Kenton could not and would not confine himself to only one category. His ensembles were musical hermaphrodites and his band was his instrument, on whose sound he worked with unusual instrumentation and above all with courageous arrangers, composers and idiosyncratic soloists. In 1972, after a break of several years, the Stan Kenton Orchestra went on tour through Europe. At this time Stan Kenton was preceded by his reputation as the legend of progressive jazz.

On the heels of his fantastic 2014 album, New Song, bassist Omer Avital delivers an enthralling performance on Abutbul Music, his debut for the Paris-based Jazz Village label. The program embraces hard-bop as its guiding spirit, but uses numerous other genres as touchstones, including Israeli folk music, funk, Afro-beat and various Latin styles. Avital, who studied Arab music theory during a three-year hiatus from New York in the early 2000s, navigates these diverse idioms with sure-footed poise, as does his agile quintet, which includes the inventive pianist Yonathan Avishai, the effervescent drummer Ofri Nehemya, the keen tenor and soprano saxophonist Asaf Yuria and the astute tenor saxophonist Alexander Levin.

We all have a Walt Disney cartoon tune or melody in mind, reminding us of magic afternoons spent with our parents when we were kids or with our own children now that we are grown-ups. It is a bit of this special feeling and pleasure that artists such as Gregory Porter, Melody Gardot, Stacey Kent, Jamie Cullum and other leading music stars share with us on the new project produced by Jay Newland and arranged and directed by Rob Mounsey, as they perform big band jazz covers of songs that are part of every kids heritage. Whether they come from Scandinavia, Andalusia, North Americas big cities or the Balkan plains, 21st century kids have the Disney magic in common, an imaginary world where both soft and wild tunes are closely linked to cult scenes from Uncle Walts animation classics.

With no music school or saxophone shop or even a teacher to start him off in Uganda, Isaiah refused circumstances to dictate his future. This was his mindset as a passionate young teenager in the early 90’s when he was given a saxophone by his guardian, an instrument he had never seen before.

This two-CD set (a reissue of an earlier two-LP set plus six previously unreleased numbers) brings back a memorable Carnegie Hall concert that both features and pays tribute to Ella Fitzgerald. The great singer is joined on a few numbers by a Chick Webb reunion band that has a few of the original members (plus an uncredited Panama Francis on drums). Although the musicians do not get much solo space (why wasn't trumpeter Taft Jordan featured?), the music is pleasing. Fitzgerald performs three exquisite duets with pianist Ellis Larkins and then sits out while the Jazz at the Philharmonic All-Stars romp on a few jams and a ballad medley. Trumpeter Roy Eldridge's emotional flights take honors, although tenorman Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis and trombonist Al Grey are also in good form. Fitzgerald comes out for the second half of the show and sings 14 numbers with guitarist Joe Pass (including a pair of tender duets) and the Tommy Flanagan trio.

While many independent artists with cool, successful "day jobs" prefer to avoid references to them when they talk about their music, SaxophonistPhillip "Doc" Martin is the complete opposite, fully embracing the inspirational factor of being a top notch practitioner in two very different professions. Beyond his ever-expanding musical fan base, hundreds of patients in the Washington DC area know him as "Dr. Martin," a board certified dentist in group practice there. His latest Innervision Records release Pocket Love, coming out this Friday March 18th, 2016, further establishes this powerful expertise via his dynamic flow and tight, funky old school driven alto vibe.

Berlin's Jazzanova collective formed in 1995, after DJing with one another at a club called Delicious Doughnuts. Alexander Barck, Claas Brieler, Roskow Kretschmann, Stefan Leisering, Axel Reinemer, and Jürgen von Knoblauch shared a common goal of blending their collected inspirations together to create a new, sophisticated sound, with debts owed to nearly every form of dance-oriented music from the past several decades.
