The saxophone is possibly the musical instrument that produces a sound closest to the human voice. Listening to a virtuoso saxophonist like Matana Roberts, one hears more than just breath through a reed instrument. Her solo recording Always, travels beyond voice, to mind, body, and spirit.

Matana Roberts is one of the most acclaimed, socio-politically conscious and aesthetically intrepid avant-jazz practitioners of the 21st century. The critical accolades for her multi-chapter Coin Coin work place her at the vanguard of stylistic innovation and radicalization, while confirming the deep substance and soul that guides her compositional agenda. Roberts has long employed the phrase "panoramic sound quilting" to describe Coin Coin, and with this third chapter in the series she implements this metaphor most overtly.

Matana Roberts (pronounced Mah-tah-Na) is a dynamic saxophonist, composer, and improviser whose music exposes the mystical roots and spiritual traditions of African American creative expression. Live In London, the follow-up to her acclaimed debut The Chicago Project, features her UK band including pianist Robert Mitchell, bassist Tom Mason, and drummer Chris Vatalaro of Antibalas. Recorded live at the Vortex Jazz Club in early 2009 by BBC Radio 3, Roberts takes us on an autobiographical tale of her music heritage, peers, and future.

Bandleader, composer, and drummer Tomas Fujiwara possesses a musical dexterity that could go unnoticed if not for its ripple effect. He has brought his rhythmic and compositional imprint to a wide variety of settings – as a member of the collective trio Thumbscrew (with Mary Halvorson and Michael Formanek), in a long-standing duo with Taylor Ho Bynum, and as a supporting member in groups led by Bynum, Halvorson, Matana Roberts, Tomeka Reid, Amir ElSaffar, and Nicole Mitchell. While these collaborative efforts could define and sustain him, a more ambitious musical intelligence emerges on closer inspection.

Tutto sembrava dirle che lì sarebbe stata al sicuro, che nulla avrebbe potuto riportarla indietro, all’orrore di quel giorno, scuro come gli occhi dell’assassino che l’aveva separata per sempre dall’uomo della sua vita. Fiona ora ha finalmente ritrovato la pace, vive su un’isola al largo della costa di Seattle, circondata dai cani che addestra. La sua vita scorre tranquilla, senza troppe emozioni. Ma un giorno Simon Doyle bussa alla sua porta, chiedendole di aiutarlo ad addestrare il suo cane. E per la prima volta dopo molti, troppi anni, Fiona sente che il suo cuore potrebbe ricominciare a battere con una certa intensità… E mentre l’amore intesse le sue promesse di felicità, il passato torna a far sentire il suo passo incessante, e questa volta potrebbe essere letale.

This well-planned Naxos programme is carefully laid out in two parts, each of viol music interspersed with harpsichord and organ pieces and ending with an anthem. It gives collectors an admirable opportunity to sample, very inexpensively, the wider output of Thomas Tomkins, and outstandingly fine Elizabethan musician whose music is still too known. Though he is best known for hid magnificent church music, it is refreshing to discover what he could do with viols, experimenting with different combinations of sizes of instruments, usually writing with the polyphony subservient to expressive harmonic feeling, as in the splendid and touching Fantasia for six viols. Perhaps the most remarkable piece here is the Hexachord fantasia, where the scurrying part-writing ornaments a rising and falling six-note scale (hexachord). The two five-part verse anthems and Above the stars, which is in six parts, are accompanied by five viols, with a fine counter-tenor in Above the stars and a bass in Thou art my King.
