When Lenny McBrowne and the 4 Souls began gigging in Sacramento and San Francisco clubs they were critically hailed as the greatest promise for the future of West Coast jazz. The leader had gained much of his experience working with Harold Land and playing engagements with Sonny Rollins, Benny Golson and Curtis Fuller. His renowned finesse as a drummer was acquired while mastering the subtleties of his mentor, Max Roach. In these sessions for Pacific Jazz and Riverside, he showed he had become one of the top drummers on the jazz scene, and his young musicians—average age 25—swing hard as a unit. Terry Trotter, Don Sleet and Daniel Jackson are here on top of the demands he placed on them.

Joyce Collins (1930-2010) was an assertive two-handed pianist who listed Erroll Garner and Bud Powell as major influences—incidentally, she was also the first woman jazz pianist to serve on the board of directors of Los Angeles, Local 47, American Federation of Musicians.

In Memoriam. RIP Mr.Wess. There’s no Count Basie here, but his spirit pervades these relaxed, swinging sessions, not least because five Basie alumni – Frank Foster, Frank Wess, Benny Powell, Henry Coker and Eddie Jones – splendidly lead the way. Aided by guitarist Kenny Burrell and drummer Kenny Clarke, with arrangements that offer plenty of space for soloists, this is a typically accomplished, unpretentious Basie-type small group blowing session. The piano-less rhythm section is buttressed by the solid bass of Eddie Jones and a cooking Kenny Clarke, while Kenny Burrell proves a fine comper and a down-home blues player.

Fritz Reiner includes three very interesting pieces on LSC-2183. He chose well. The pieces highlight the greatness that is Fritz Reiner and his amazing Chicago Symphony Orchestra. As represented here, the “Reiner Sound” - rich, detailed and incredibly dynamic - is married unswervingly to honest interpretations of the highest musical caliber. Reiner is rarely surpassed in his RCA repertoire.

In the Boston Symphony series of stereophonic recordings, we find this kind of orchestral arrangement, and Monteux's architectural vision in all of these performances produces a sound-world that can be breathtaking. Listen to the sweep of the last movement of the Tchaikovsky Fifth with its wonderful balance of strings, winds, and brass, the full grandeur of the piece without any sense of heaviness, and the sheer élan of the coda that leaves the listener exalted, not exhausted. Or turn to the dichotomy of brooding and extrovert energy in the opening movement of the Fourth Symphony. While we can hear superb performances of these works by conductors like Mravinsky, the Monteux Tchaikovsky symphonies are true classics, that combine wise, beautiful, powerful performances with remarkably fine sound.

Simbiose combines two of Brazil’s most thoughtful young guitarists Pedro Martins (winner of the 2015 Montreal Jazz Festival Electric Guitar Competition) and Daniel Santiago for a release that confirms the tradition of Brazilian jazz guitar continues into a new generation. The two join forces in their unbridled creativity, expanding the language and literature of their instruments all while maintaining sensitivity to the distinct nature of being “Brasileiro”.

Fusing futurist rock and spectral electronics with elegant atmospheres and wild guitars, To The Bone references the hugely ambitious Progressive Pop records that inspired Wilson in his teens (Peter Gabriel’s So, Talk Talk’s Colour of Spring, Tears for Fears Seeds of Love etc). Lyrically, the album’s eleven tracks encompass the paranoid chaos of the post-truth era and the creeping self-loathing of the technology age, as well as steely fly-on-the-wall observations of the everyday lives of religious fundamentalists and a welcome shot or two of wide-eyed escapism. A gloriously dynamic Modernist Pop record, To The Bone is Steven Wilson's fifth offical solo album and it's a high definition snapshot of the disconcerting times we live in.
