These guys never fail to blow us away – and albums like this have us coming back for more Indigo Jazz Unit again and again over the years! If anything, the group are better musically here than ever – even more jazz-based in their approach, mixing together hard piano-driven lines with massive bass and drums – very similar to Quasimode at points, but with a much darker edge too! As with all their albums, the packaging is quite spare, but the sound is wonderfully rich – and some of the numbers here show a newly lyrical side that only has us loving them more than ever, and really pushing them to the front of our club jazz list.

Pianist Cecil Taylor formed a very unique sounding band for his Blue Note Records debut in 1966. Taylor began experimenting throughout the 50s and 60s, his music became more complex and developed in a way that was different then other jazz forms of the time. The album opened up new possibilities in the realm of jazz, allowing musicians to develop unique forms of musical exchange. The unusual septet voicing includes two bass players.

Grand Prix Du Disque De L'académie Charles Cros 1959. Recorded at the celebrated Club Saint Germain, the formation presented here marks the third incarnation of Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, with trumpeter Lee Morgan (then only 20 years old), tenor saxophonist Benny Golson, pianist Bobby Timmons and bassist Jymie Merrit. For the last two tunes, bop drum pioneer Kenny Clarke (who was living in Paris) substitutes Blakey. Besides the individual gifts of each member, the group forms a compact unit with a cohesive sound. “We play modern jazz”, explained Blakey during a 1958 interview, “and to understand it you mus listen. We study, we rehearse. The Jazz Messengers are very serious about getting the music across to you. If you don’t want to listen, maybe the person sitting next to you does.”

This might well be the best Funk Unit that Nils Landgren has had gathered around him since 2010: technically outstanding, this is a group of team players who combine well with a great groove connection. James Brown meets Parliament meets Crusaders meets Funk Unit: that's one way you could describe the musical concept on "Teamwork". It is pure party feeling, the notes whirl coolly through the ranks, superb horn sets alternate with ecstatic solos, dance beats, smooth vocals and strong melodies, but there is also time for elegance and heartfelt blues. "Teamwork" is all that and then some, played by a dream team of sweat-inducing funk workers with soul in their blood."I felt that Funk Unit had so much more to give," recalls team captain Landgren, whose funk formation still shows no signs of fatigue even after…
