Tunisian oud master, vocalist, and composer Dhafer Youssef is globally renowned for his restless musicality.

What an astonishing idea: Couple the sensational, genre-defying Japanese pianist Hiromi Uehara with the spellbinding Colombian harpist Edmar Castenada, who proves that his traditional Andean folk instrument is as unlimited as his musical imagination. Both these people are charmers: Since her 2003 debut recording Another Mind, Hiromi has dazzled listeners with her explosive keyboard technique and performance style. She is classically trained, but clearly loves the spontaneous and unbound aspects of jazz. Castenada, whose father was a famed harpist, hails from Bogota. He emigrated to New York City in 1994, quickly attracting attention. In his hands the harp’s strings ring forcefully, adding unusual counterpoint to jazz’s encounters with all the world's possibilities. What do Hiromi and Castenada sound like in collaboration? Only a few audiences know—this is their first tour together. Bet on their music being fresh and lively.

In 2015, the young American singer Cécile McLorin Salvant won a Grammy with her album For One to Love, and this live follow-up from New York’s Village Vanguard, with her classy trio and an occasional string quartet, reworks plenty of standard songs (there are a few shrewd originals too) with audacity, imagination and unerring dramatic timing. Some say Salvant largely avoids jazz models, but the great Betty Carter is a significant influence, even if Salvant and her fine pianist Aaron Diehl arrange the plotlines and payoffs of songs much more meticulously.

In "Gnosis", the Santiago de Cuba-raised and New York-based pianist-composer David Virelles looks towards one melting pot from the vantage point of another. At one level an autobiographical album, a sequence of images conveyed through sound, Gnosis is a far- reaching work with deep roots. Transculturation and traditions are among the subjects under consideration, and the complex tapestry of Cuba’s music: the sacred, the secular, and the ritualistic. It’s an exciting, vivid and multi-faceted project of rapidly changing temperament, in which pulsating ensemble music and pristine, meditative solo piano both have their places. And it is enveloped in a feeling of mystery and magic that has made each of Virelles’s albums special.

As the title implies, "Last Spring" is a revisiting of the joys of springtime. It is not an exulting, whirling awakening, but a sustained, minimalistic meditation, oriented strongly towards the details, the variance of the melodies and the breadth and beauty of the sound. It is based on the most perfect interaction possible: soft piano melts into the pizzicato melodies that Henning Kraggerud entices out of his 1744 Guarneri violin, his Harald Lund viola and his unique six-stringed viola Concorda.
