    Just listening to the Charles Lloyd / Frisell / Lucinda Williams album. Its very, very nice, but then I like anything with Frisell on it. Thanks for the suggestion.

    for some new releases that have really worked for me (both from around 2015)

    Dan Nimmer Trio " tea for two"

    Tsuyoshi Yamamoto Trio "night at body and soul"

    both superb recordings, and great music.

    I’ve been streaming the Larry Grenadier solo record “The Gleaners” this weekend.


    Great sound - at least through Sonos. I’ve always loved bass solos but don’t have any solo bass records and have always enjoyed Grenadier’s playing both on record and live. This one is now on pre order. In places it reminds me of classical solo cello recordings.

    Kokoroko have released their first 12" single. It includes Abusey Junction which first appeared on the "We Out Here" compilation album.

    I think this is jazz - he's certainly played with lots of jazz guys - either way it's getting played a lot round here.

    Some other tracks sounds like Beefheart playing with a Magic Band influenced by experimental jazz/hip hop rather than the blues - it is very good!

    I saw Ben LaMar Gay when his trio played in London a few months ago. He was fantastic and made the performance seem effortless.

    Something I stumbled across while looking for something else by him: Tony Allen - A Tribute To Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers, which sounds pretty much like you'd expect it to (no bad thing obv.)

    Heard a track off this when a mate played it on his radio show - now checking it out on their bandcamp page, and it's sounding very nice so far.

    I just came across Tony Allen - The Source which is a double lp that followed on from the Blakey EP. Released in 2017 on Blue Note, it's all analogue and sounds great. Review here.

    Good plan. I just played it through and enjoyed it so much that I ordered the Blakey EP.
