#EssentialAlbums  Review by Raul da Gama
Herbie Hancock was just twenty-three when he recorded this album. The music on it speaks to the pianist’s deeply-felt urge to go beyond the boundaries.

#Interviews by Thomas Peña

“Denner is a super strong pianist, and her arrangements are full of rhythmic order; when she’s improvising she brings a ton of harmony and time to her blowing. The whole thing’s a study in time and all its shadings. Peter Watrous – Descarga.com Nikki…

#JazzReport
The rhythmic intricacies of Brasilian music are just one aspect of that metaphor. Then there is that beautiful concept of a feeling called alegria. One cannot exist without the other. The point I am trying to make here is that if you don’t have both then…

Art Blakey And His Jazz Messengers With Sabu: Cu-Bop

It is curious thing that this album is listed in very few biographical notes about the Jazz Messengers. Perhaps it is a small matter in the greater scheme of things as far as The Jazz Messengers go. But this group was the second incarnation of the…
This is a joyous recording by Art Blakey and Sabu and well worth exploring whether you are a Jazz Messengers acolyte or just plain curious.

#5StarAlbums  The word they use to refer to themselves is “powerhouse”. That, to me, sounds a little too masculine to describe nine extraordinarily beautiful ladies who do not back away from flaunting their sensuality and their attitude; something that they have tonnes…
Cocomama is a powerhouse all female multi-national Latin Jazz orchestra, creating volcanic musicality as they work their way through a slow-burning project.

#AlbumoftheWeek Antonio Adolfo: Tema via @LatinJazzNet

What a marvelous disc this is. Absolutely marvelous. Antonio Adolfo and his music have been congenial bedfellows and the Brazilian’s pianism and his music are compelling on many different levels. There is a sense of sharing the sheer sensuous thrill of…
Antonio Adolfo's new album "Tema" is a clear labour of love, and one in which he shines new light on new and older music to mesmerising effect.

The best performance here is an extraordinary rendition of Juan Tizol’s “Perdido”. Transferred to the piano’s upper register and played with rhythmic elegance, its joyous character is given an amplified radiance I’d not heard before. Although there may…

It was Cecil Taylor (and there were probably many more who came before him) who said that if you cannot dance to music then it is not worth listening to. This is exactly what makes Jazz and all Latin music so irresistible. It is the fact that when it is…
