Of the four or five Kevin Coyne albums that fans routinely describe as his best ever, Marjory Razorblade is by far the best known in the wider world, a consequence not only of the enormous critical splash it made upon its original release in 1973, but also because of the ripples it continued sending out long after the fact. Four years later, Sex Pistol Johnny Rotten singled out the album's "Eastbourne Ladies" as one of his all-time favorite records, while the strumming, thrumming "Marlene" is one of those records whose failure to become a monster hit single continues to baffle and bewilder. (Even Virgin thought so, as they proved when they gave it a second chance in 1977.) Yet "Marlene" is just one highlight amid a storm-tossed sea of the things.

Trouble Hunting is a Polish-Danish quintet started in October 2010 in Odense. The band performs music of Tomasz Licak. Compositions are inspired by the wide-ranging contemporary music, from jazz to classical. An important role in the work of Trouble Hunting is improvisation - not only performed by soloists but also "compositional" and collective. This gives the band's music original sound and special, unique stylistic consistency. Music of Trouble Hunting is full of contrasts, both minimalistic and rich, narrative, and running away into abstraction.

This project – a tribute to an obscure Glaswegian indie band by an equally obscure Edinburgh jazz musician – is an oddly satisfying exercise in wilful Caledonian obscurity. The Pearlfishers, led by David Scott of the BMX Bandits, have been recording dreamy, elegant, adult-oriented pop since the early 90s, pitched somewhere between Brian Wilson, Steely Dan and Prefab Sprout. Colin Steele, the self-taught trumpeter behind his own Scottish-accented modern jazz quintet and jazz-folk outfit Stramash, here dismantles 10 of Scott’s cleverly written songs and reassembles them as glistening modern jazz, his Harmon-muted trumpet turning the melodies into a pleasantly chromatic blur. It would be fascinating to hear Steele apply this approach to the music of other indie bands, Scottish or otherwise.

Hamilton de Holanda is widely considered as the best Brazilian mandolin player and as one of the greatest virtuosos of bandolim of all times. Casa De Bituca sees Latin Grammy award-winning Hamilton de Holanda and his quintet joined by singer-songwriter and guitarist Milton Nascimento to perform compositions by that legendary musician. Coinciding with Nascimento's 75th birthday and presenting reimagined versions of songs from early in his career, this is a true celebration of classic Brazilian music, complemented by two original compositions from de Holanda.

"Uhuru" is one of two albums of "Harlem Bush Music" recorded in November of 1970 and January of 1971 by Gary Bartz NTU Troop. The title itself shows that soprano/alto Bartz and singer Andy Bey were moving toward a more expansive format to explore black consciousness within the realm of jazz. This righteously grooving mixture of jazz, funk, soul, and searching rhythms proves an essential and politically relevant entry in the canon of timeless jazz recordings.

On Encore, French jazz singer Virginie Teychene stands on the edges of collective memory and draws us into an unexpected encounter with our own emotions. Partnered with a quintet, she takes us by the hand and urges us to dance, over and over again, on this loving tribute to chanson singers Claude Nougaro, Barbara and Alain Bashung.

"Undercurrent" is the fourth studio album by American singer–songwriter Sarah Jarosz. A gifted instrumentalist, singularly expressive vocalist and songwriter of rare insight, Jarosz anchors her new record with a haunting quartet of songs written and performed solo 'Early Morning Light,' 'Everything to Hide,' 'Take Another Turn' and 'Jacqueline.' She expands her palate from the swampy defiance of 'House of Mercy' to the nostalgic 'Back of My Mind.' Undercurrent captures the process of personal evolution and discovery as well as the inspirational nature of change. The album and one song were nominated for three Grammy Awards, winning two.

This live recording of straight ahead jazz features the great Ron Carter on bass, Donald Vega on piano and Russell Malone on guitar. The three of them are smack dab right in front of you with the bass dead center, the piano panned to the left and guitar to the right. Excellent playing and a ton of fun.

In March 2016, British indie singer-songwriter Billy Bragg and his American counterpart Joe Henry boarded a Los Angeles-bound train at Chicago’s Union Station, guitars in hand, looking to reconnect with the culture of American railroad travel and the music it inspired. Winding along more than 2700 miles of track over four days, the pair recorded classic railroad songs in waiting rooms and at trackside while the train stopped to pick up passengers.

Liane Carroll’s talents, as singer, pianist and all-round musical force of nature, seemed to defy all efforts to capture them successfully on record. Until, that is, she began working with producer James McMillan. This, their fourth album together, displays a characteristic mixture of deceptive simplicity and emotional depth. Following the loose theme of attitudes to love, Carroll calls on songs by, among others, Stevie Wonder, Tom Waits, Jacques Brel and Hoagy Carmichael, whose I Get Along Without You Very Well provides the most touching moment.
