Michael Bisio - Inimitable (January 2022 Mung Music)

In the first official "guest album" of Mung Music, great bassist Michael Bisio presents an album of solo bass improvisations that ranges from lyrical melancholy to the purely textural and pointillistic, showing a true range of expression that is indicative of his many decades as one of the most prolific bassists in the avant garde jazz scene worldwide.

Inimitable | iˈnimədəb(ə)l | adjective

So good or unusual as to be impossible to copy; unique

"It’s funny how this word, inimitable, just by inflection or context can be the greatest compliment or, tongue-in-cheek, a jab - cue the eye role. The last time I heard it applied to me it gave me pause. I was introduced as the “inimitable” Michael Bisio in a very public forum of bassists by someone who has been my friend for 30+ years. He has always been a great supporter, champion of my music and gone out of his way to be helpful and kind. Yet somehow due to the “straight ahead” nature of the event I wondered if this person might have been covering his “basses” with this intro. I even referenced a dictionary to be sure the meaning I attached to the word was correct. After some thought, I had to consider my reaction and decided it was time for me to let go of my own insecurities. It was time to embrace not only the love in my friend’s beautiful introduction but all those wonderful qualities that inspired it.

At this time, with this recording, I embrace not only my inimitableness but yours as well, in fact, everyone’s . Please join me in this beautiful celebration of those qualities that make each of us unique."

Baba Sissoko - Griot Jazz (Caligola Records)

Il progetto «Griot Jazz» nasce durante la residenza per l’allestimento dell’opera musicale «Le Vol du Boli» al Teatro di Châtelet di Parigi, in cui sono coinvolti tre musicisti maliani, Baba Sissoko e Lansiné Kouyaté, già noti in Europa (il primo vive in Italia, il secondo in Francia) ed il più giovane Madou Sidiki Diabate, che risiede ancora in Mali. I tre suonano sempre insieme, tutti i giorni, sia prima delle prove che durante le pause dello spettacolo, e dopo un mese Sissoko ha già scritto abbastanza materiale da sentire l’esigenza di registrarlo prima che ciascuno torni a casa propria. Lansiné, che vive a Parigi, prenota quindi lo studio di registrazione di un amico musicista francese, il tastierista Jean–Philippe Rykiel, classe 1961, cieco dalla nascita, che, ascoltandoli provare, sente il desiderio di sedersi al piano e suonare con loro.

Le sue tastiere sembrano integrarsi alla perfezione con la musica del trio, tanto che gli viene chiesto di aggiungersi al gruppo. La grande libertà mostrata nell’interpretare la musica africana, le tastiere creative di Rykiel, così come il grande spazio lasciato all’improvvisazione, sembrano avvicinare molto la musica del Mali al jazz, e non è caso che il brano che dà il titolo al disco, Griot Jazz, sia forse il più riuscito esempio di questa fusione. Seppur nato fortuitamente, il progetto non sembra poi così casuale. Rykiel, pianista ma anche arrangiatore e produttore, ha collaborato con Jon Hassell e Leonard Cohen ma soprattutto con Salif Keita e Youssou N’Dour, con cui ha co prodotto tre album. Aveva inoltre già registrato in duo con Kouyaté, che a sua volta ha suonato con Keita e Dee Dee Bridgewater.

Esperienze analoghe a quelle di Baba Sissoko, che al jazz è sempre stato molto vicino, sin dalle prime esperienze con l’Art Ensemble of Chicago. Delle sue molte recenti produzioni questa sembra essere la più riuscita ed equilibrata. I 15 brani che la compongono scorrono via fluidi, senza intoppi, e gli strumenti tradizionali africani sanno ricercare con le tastiere di Rykiel sonorità nuove ed originali, riuscendo spesso a trovarle.

Burnt Sugar The Arkestra Chamber - Angels Over Oakanda ~ Digital Edition

'Burnt Sugar The Arkestra Chamber returns to form with Angels Over Oakanda, a four-song suite that represents its first new studio album since 2017. The title refers to the Bay area — Oakland, one of the centers of Black culture. And the first movement opens with the funky bassline of co-leader and Dayton, Ohio groove master Jared Michael Nickerson, who sets the groove. A swinging, hip tune reminiscent of ‘70s funk and Electric Miles, and a head-bopping gem.” 
~ Sheila Anderson ~ WBGO

The New Yorker Goings On About Town
Night Life
Burnt Sugar : “Angels Over Oakanda”

“More than two decades ago, the cultural critic Greg Tate founded Burnt Sugar, a sprawling New York improv unit, currently numbering some two dozen members, that roam freely through all manner of internationally historical styles, particularly Black music. The bassist Jared Michael Nickerson, Tate’s co-leader, underpins “Angels Over Oakanda,” the band’s first album in four years, with rhythms that sweep the music along like a tide. Taking after the late Butch Morris, Tate conducts the players’ improvisations, which are sharp throughout, nowhere more so than over the skintight reggaeton groove on “Repatriation of the Midnight Moors Inna Oakanda.”
~ Michaelangelo Matos

From the hive-mind of Burnt Sugar Arkestra the Chamber massive comes “Angels Over Oakanda.” A new four-song suite of Conducted Improvisations and home studio orchestrations which treat space time and genre like trans-dimensional silly-putty while giving polyphonic and multi-rhythmic dap to the visionary legacies of The Moors and the Black Panther Party.

MC Bruce Lee from NYC’s Downtown Music Gallery says … “It has been around 4 years since the last release of new music was dropped by our good friends, Burnt Sugar. Considering that has been more than 20 years since Greg ‘Ironman’ Tate organized this massive, ever-evolving, beyond categories large ensemble, the Burnt Sugar Arkestra has delivered a dozen wonderful discs (1, 2 & 3 CD sets), each one a gem blending the best of many worlds: funk, jazz, rock, R & B, fusion, prog, hip-hop, psych and much more. Plus spirited collaborations with Butch Morris and Melvin van Peebles. Plus, not so strangely enough, their new one sounds nothing like anything they’ve done previously.

Over those two decades the personnel has also evolved from gig to gig, disc to disc. There are, of course, a handful of regulars: Greg Tate, Jared Michael Nickerson, Avram Fefer, ‘Moist’ Paula Henderson, Ben Tyree, Satch Hoyt and André Lassalle.

‘Angels Over Oakanda’ is a four song suite and Oakanda refers to a section in the Bay Area (Oakland) where Black Culture is appreciated and nurtured. The title track is long and winding and has an infectious, laid-back, funky, dream-like groove. Five horns, alto, tenor & bari saxes, flute & trumpet, all swirling together with several guitars, keyboards and percussion all creating a cosmic kaleidoscope of rainbow colors. That groove is most infectious, slamming, sort of Electric Miles for the 21st Century. So good, you don’t want it to end! One of the things that stands out here is el bassist Jared Michael Nickerson, whose bass is at the center the swirling storm throughout this entire endeavor. On “Repatriation-of-the-Midnight-Moors”, his bass sounds sped up and is even more astonishing! The groove here is right out of drum ’n bass, sly, phat and center to make you want to shake your booty! When I played this piece at store on Monday (8/30/21), a bunch of multi-colored folks all started to dance! John M & myself just had to join in, so we did just that.

Reeds wiz, Satch Hoyt plays some superfine flute throughout this piece. Another great thing about this disc is how well it is produced: totally awesome! On “Oakland Overdrive”, the band really takes off with some superb electric piano, furious electric bass and layers of percussion. Plus the horns are well-produced with some of that seventies, swirling reverb that many of us old-timers recall with deep fondness. The final song is a remix of “Oakanda Overdrive” with Lisala Beatty’s immensely enchanting voice(s) on top! This is the best feel-good record of the year, both your booty and your mind will feel better after you get down to it!”

Kevin Sun - 3 Bird (endectomorph music)

<3 BIRD is Kevin Sun’s love letter to the towering father of modern jazz, Charlie Parker. In a concise but wide-ranging program of 12 original compositions and three arrangements, Sun draws electrifying and futuristic conclusions from Parker’s musical innovations.

With <3 BIRD, Sun proves himself a formidable contributor to the continuing legacy of Parker’s music in this new century. In doing so, he also shares his vision for future directions in jazz and even more creative work to come.

"An outstanding recording...The album acknowledges the past, lives in the present and looks to the future... The spirit of Charlie Parker is very much alive on this one, an album that seems to bring new discoveries with every listen. Highly recommended.”
– Miguel Zenón, saxophonist/composer

— DownBeat Magazine (December 2021)

19th Annual Panama Jazz Festival

19th Annual Panama Jazz Festival 
Announced for January 10-15, 2022

In 2022, Panama Jazz Festival celebrates its nineteenth edition in a hybrid format. After the challenges the festival faced in 2021 they managed to virtually gather more than 170,000 people from 70 different countries. For the 2022 edition, Panama Jazz Festival returns with hopes to see the public, fans, and students come together during the week of the festival, to continue their mission of inspiring lives.

Unesco Artist for Peace, Cultural Ambassador of Panama, 2021 Doris Duke Artist Award recipient, and Artistic Director of the Panama Jazz Festival, Danilo Perez returns with recharged force to continue demonstrating the teamwork that is imperative for the social change in Panama and the rest of the world.

"The Festival is a cultural project that over 18 years has managed to consolidate creativity, exchange, and talent, with a strong commitment to education and social welfare in Panama. It is the largest cultural event in the region, which has had the participation of thousands of artists and public from all over the world, adding more than 300 thousand attendees in its 18 past editions,” says Danilo Pérez.

The Panama Jazz Festival, now in its nineteenth year, will pay tribute to Panamanian pianist Frank Anderson. Born on January 24, 1929, in Bocas del Toro, Anderson grew up with a solid music education and began to play with many established musicians in Panama. In September of 1948, he made the move to New York where he built a distinguished career performing with some of the best Latin musicians of our times including Marcelino Guerra, Israel “Cachao” López, and Arsenio Rodríguez. He also performed with jazz master Clark Terry, created his own Caribbean Big Band, and recorded with Lena Horne, Mahalia Jackson, Harry Belafonte, Chico O'Farrill, Hubert Laws, Woody Shaw, Kenny Burrell, among many others.

A cornerstone of the Panama Jazz Festival is to honor the legacy of jazz music in Panama. This festival’s edition will celebrate the concept of “Playing the Route”, which highlights the historical connection of our Isthmus with popular American music. This relationship is seen from the construction of the Transoceanic Railroad in 1850, to the development of the Banana industry in the late 1800s, and the construction of the Panama Canal in 1903. All of which allowed for Panama to be linked to the main jazz foci, New York and New Orleans, making our isthmus a protagonist and an essential part of jazz history.

This year features an abundance of renowned artists: Kurt Elling (United States); Borderlands Trio, featuring Canadian Pianist and Composer Kris Davis with Eric McPherson and Stephan Crump; Renowned Alto Saxophonist Antonio Hart (United States); Danilo Perez’s Global Messengers; PZ-533 Global Jazz Womex; among others. From Panama, the talent of great legends to new generations, such as the Panamanian star Solinka, the much-loved Lady of Jazz Idania Dowman, Mayra Hurley and Panama Connections.
A week of enriching clinics and concerts will kick off with the great gala night held at the National Theater. Concurrently, the 10th Latin American Music Therapy Symposium will bring together music therapists from Panama, Chile, the United States, and beyond. The Panama Jazz Festival is also pleased to welcome participating schools: Berklee College of Music through the Berklee Global Jazz Institute, The New England Conservatory, and New York Jazz Academy.

The nineteenth Panama Jazz Festival will have the Ciudad del Saber as its educational venue, and the official hotel is the Wyndham Panama Albrook Mall Hotel & Convention Center. All activities will ensure compliance with all biosecurity measures, including the mandatory use of masks and social distancing between seats, according to the Ministry of Health (MINSA) provisions.

The festival is produced by Panama Jazz Productions to benefit the social programs of the Danilo Pérez Foundation with the help of the Presidency of Panama, Panama's Ministry of Culture, Panama City Mayor Office, City of Knowledge, Copa Airlines, Alamo Rent a Car, Cable and Wireless, and many others.

Dave Sewelson - Smooth FreeJazz (Mahakala Music)

Smooth jazz has always seemed like a contradiction in terms. The idea that jazz, a musical gift to America from black people that includes revolutionary concepts of cooperative improvisation and trust, could have its edges beveled and the thrill of spontaneity muted and made “safe”, would be like taking the revolution out or revolutionary and just leaving the airy. Smooth FreeJazz is a creative display of this dichotomy by contrasting a smooth center with a fiery edge. Who better to lead the way than Dave Sewelson, one of the oldest members of New York’s Downtown Scene. Instead of music being a shag rug on the floor with the scent of air freshener, we see that it's a dirt floor with a strong wind through the window.
