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.

Genre: Progressive Rock | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Self-released

Self-proclaimed underground troubadour Arnaud Bukwald, a native of France, is certainly one of the more unique creative forces to enter the prog sphere in the 21st century. With a whimsical, unpredictable approach to composing music, Bukwald's output is every bit as eccentric as it is eclectic. After the world music-oriented Moondragore - ethnic collection, Bukwald's prog career began with the 2011 album bizarremporium. A humorous, almost vaudevillian work, bizarremporium marked the beginning of Bukwald's signature style, mixing jazz and psychedelic rock in a soundtrack-like context. Over the years, Bukwald's music shifted away from its jazz-heavy roots and began to explore psychedelic influences to a greater extent…

ONE WAY GLASS is a very different kind of RPM compilation. Instead of the usual cross-section of Sixties collectables, this unique 3-CD set takes a fresh look at British music from the late 60s through to the mid-70s, with an eye on overlooked dancefloor-friendly finds. The rhythmic backbone of One Way Glass lies in Progressive Rock outfits who - every so often - would emulate their jazz heroes and record funky sides tucked away on albums or B-sides. Many of these tracks (Jonesy, Hardin & York) have been known to collectors of Funky Breaks for years.

The New York Trio, consisting of pianist Bill Charlap, bassist Jay Leonhart, and drummer Bill Stewart, have put together a spectacular jazz lineup for this audiophile SACD. Also known as the New York Jazz Trio, the group is known for recording classic standards in a straightforward, post-bop style.

Jay Leonhart, a bassist for the Trio, has also dabbled in vocals and songwriting and has performed with Marian McPartland, Louie Bellson, Lee Konitz, and many others. And drummer Bill Stewart has rubbed musical elbows on stage with jazz guitarist John Scofield, sax player Maceo Parker and R&B legend James Brown.
