Megalodon Collective - Animals (JAZZLAND RECORDINGS 2017)



Perhaps Megalodon Collective's description of themselves is the most straightforward ... "sixty feet of prehistoric terror".

Yet that doesn't quite capture what this Norwegian Grammy-nominated septet unleashes upon the world. Their compositions and improvisations build with slow majesty and release a fiery rain of sonic chaos. Contrapuntal insanity creates illusions of order, while high urgency solos and lizard rhythms create illusions of disorder. They seamlessly leap from sounding like the Mingus Dynasty band trapped on a star cruiser with controls set for the heart of the sun to the pit orchestra from hell performing the soundtrack to a Keystone Cops movie directed by Quentin Tarantino.

This is traditional jazz with some non-western inflections in a bubbling broth of mercurial whimsy, tungsten-hard swing, gear-grinding factory noise, decimated funk, a stilt-walking Samba band parading through a burning free jazz session, extended musical techniques that mere mortals fear to play or hear, interstellar Dixieland cakewalking through a psychedelic reimagining of 1950s Chicago, and an exquisitely beautiful and delicate cacophony. Moments of tenderness, sweet melody and placid contemplation suddenly dissipate, and the band become a troupe of mediæval minstrels running across a bed of hot coals to joyously leap into the Nietzschean abyss.

Theirs is a whirling cabaret of lightning and brimstone, cascading diamonds and crumbling bedrock. They are incomprehensibly familiar and understandably alien; they elude description and categorization like a mythic lake monster ... So ...

Perhaps they were right to begin with: Megalodon Collective are, indeed, "sixty feet of prehistoric terror"!

Owls - Crumbling Light (ATS RECORDS 2017)



Rooted in Jazz, but unafraid to deviate from it. With open ears and a sensitivity to sound, three Austrian musicians present themselves.

The trio met in Vienna and started a collaboration soon afterwards; Simon Oberleitner (piano),
David Ambrosch (double bass) and Konstantin Kräutler (drums) release their debut album, crumbling light, in spring 2017. “In a way, the album can be interpreted like an exhibition or collection of many small illustrations.

The title song Crumbling Light is just one of these pictures,” Oberleitner explains.

Together they founded the Jazz-piano trio “Owls” in autumn 2015 and recorded their CD in November of the same year. The result justifies the timeline – the simple pieces full of ambient depth (all written by Oberleitner himself) are played with elegant sincerity and chamber music-like intimacy, and leave no doubt as to the musicians’ aptitude.

“It was of great importance to me that the music came to the fore, rather than the arrangements. The compositions were only the motifs, so to speak, which we painted. The way we went about them, which tones we used – that should take centre stage. In David and Konstantin I found
the truest companions for such an enterprise.”

1. Echoes from Syria, Pt. 1 8:01
2. Echoes from Syria, Pt. 2 4:55
3. Echoes from Syria, Pt. 3 3:49
4. Time Shift 4:52
5. Crumbling Light 5:28
6. Dancing Child in a Foggy Landscape 5:50
7. Overture to Genesis 3:19
8. One Day with a Squirrel 2:43
9. Last Dance 10:23

David Ambrosch, double bass
Konstantin Kräutler, drums


Mike Richmond Cello Quartet - The Pendulum (SteepleChase Records 2017)



Mike Richmond, Grammy Award-winning bassist with vast experience with leaders such as Miles Davis, Stan Getz, Horace Silver, Jack DeJohnette, Gil Evans, Chet Baker to mention a few, leads here his own group with cello as his instrument for the first time. Cello as a jazz instrument is still a rarity but its history goes back to the 50s when Oscar Pettiford broke new ground. Richmond put together this all-Pettiford-composition album to honor the pioneer.

“…Dance for Andy is one of those rare CDs that sustain interest through a 70-minute-plus duration.” (Richard Cook & Brian Morton – The Penguin Guide on SCCD 31267)

“Richmond is as nimble fingered and resourceful a bassist we have heard in some time.” (New York Daily News)

03 TWO LITTLE PEARLS 8:59
04 LAVERNE WALK 6:18

Bob Hanlon & Mark Minchello - Camaraderie (SteepleChase Records 2017)



Camaraderie – a partnership of organist Mark Minchello and saxophonist Bob Hanlon – is a follow up to their first Steeplechase release Trinomial. This CD features the outstanding guitar work of Vic Juris and Bob Devos as well as newcomer Charlie Sigler and drummers Andy Watson and Pete McDonald.

“AH! The Hammond B3 trio with sax and drums, and Hammond hitter Mark Minchello makes the team wheeze, groove and fog up an interesting and well thought collection of tunes. They keep away from the blues and instead venture into uncharted waters by doing tunes not usually associated with this genre.” (George W. Harris – Jazz Weekly on Trinomial SCCD33117)

01 WILL YOU STILL BE MINE (Matt Dennis) 7:38
02 LOVESSENCE (Bob Hanlon) 6:50
03 SAMBESQUE (Mark Minchello) 7:09
04 JAZZ ORBITS (Bob Hanlon) 6:33
05 CLOSE YOUR EYES (Bernice Petkere) 8:49
