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.

Esperanza Spalding presents Emily's D+Evolution, a rekindling of her childhood interest in theater, poetry and movement, which delves into a broader concept of performance. Taking a new approach to her on-stage persona, the remarkable Spalding taps into new creative energy, delivering musical vignettes inspired during a "sleepless night of full moon inspiration." As she puts it, "Emily is my middle name, and I'm using this fresh persona as my inner navigator. This project is about going back and reclaiming un-cultivated curiosity, and using it as a compass to move forward and expand. My hope for this group is to create a world around each song, there are a lot of juicy themes and stories in the music. We will be staging the songs as much as we play them, using characters, video, and the movement of our bodies".
