With her album The Onion's Core, the Malmö-based saxophonist Ida Karlsson has done some soul-searching, finding inspiration from her background and childhood in Haraker, Sweden. In a stressful time when every individual is the smith of her own fortune and artists are expected to be versatile in all arenas, Ida's song composing reveals a dismissal of excess and a return to her familial roots.

Gerald Joseph Mulligan (April 6, 1927 – January 20, 1996) was an American jazz saxophonist, clarinetist, composer and arranger. Though Mulligan is primarily known as one of the leading jazz baritone saxophonists – playing the instrument with a light and airy tone in the era of cool jazz – he was also a significant arranger, working with Claude Thornhill, Miles Davis, Stan Kenton, and others. Mulligan's pianoless quartet of the early 1950s with trumpeter Chet Baker is still regarded as one of the best cool jazz groups. Mulligan was also a skilled pianist and played several other reed instruments. Several of his compositions, such as "Walkin' Shoes" and "Five Brothers", have become jazz standards.

This collection by a barisax jazz master shows variety in style (bebop, hard bop, post bop, soul jazz, and modern creative), performed with musicians who are among the best in east coast jazz. In the 1950's Billy Phipps along with his brother Nat formed a band whose members included Wayne Shorter, Grachon Moncur, Chris White, Charlie Mason, Robert Thomas, and many others. Phipps began his jazz career playing bebop on flute and baritone saxophone and was a regular in Newark and New York bands, once opening for Billie Holiday. The band morphed into the Mega Tones, and Billy left to tour with notables such as Dizzy Gillespie, Ray Charles, and "Brother" Jack McDuff.

Before the five musicians got together, they brought their own groups to the Molde Jazz Festival in Norway. Some months later the quintet met and rehearsed in Copenhagen. They also recorded the album Nordjazz (Storyville Records 1975).

From the moment it opens up, with funky jazz, gritty blues and bucketloads of soul, this compilation sets the tone for a night of partying.

He has brought new band members to the fore, all the better to develop and explore new musical pastures. The Kora Jazz Band is therefore a new generation Kora Jazz Trio - a formation that brings us new sonic textures, new breathing space and greater scope.

Album "Laokoon", to autorskie dzieło Krzysztofa Zgrai. Płyta została nagrana w 1981 roku i wydana w serii Polish Jazz pod numerem 64. Krzysztof Zgraja to muzyk wybitny. Można stwierdzić bez przesady, że jest pierwszym z prawdziwego zdarzenia flecistą w historii polskiej sceny jazzu i jako pierwszy pokazał, czym może być ten instrument w rękach wirtuoza, obdarzonego nadzwyczajną inwencją improwizacyjną.
