Anouar Brahem – The Astounding Eyes of Rita (2009) [Jazz, Qobuz, FLAC 96kHz/24bit]

Artist: Anouar Brahem
Title: The Astounding Eyes of Rita
Genre: Jazz
Release Date: 2009
Label: ECM
Duration: 53:26
Quality: FLAC 96kHz/24bit
Source: Qobuz
Recorded: October 2008 at Artesuono Studio, Udine

Delightful new project, assembled by Tunisian oud master Brahem with producer Manfred Eicher. Combination of bass clarinet with oud suggests a link to Anouar's "Thimar" trio, but this East/West line-up often feels closer to the more traditionally-inclined sounds of "Barzakh" or "Conte de l'Incroyable Amour". Klaus Gesing, from Norma Winstone's Trio, and Bjrn Meyer, from Nik Brtsch's Ronin, are both players with an affinity for musical sources beyond jazz, and they interact persuasively inside Brahem's music. A dance of dark, warm sounds, urged onward by the darbouka and frame drum of Lebanese percussionist Khaled Yassine. The album is dedicated to the memory of Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish.

Anouar Brahem – Souvenance (2014) [Jazz, HighResAudio, FLAC 96kHz/24bit]

Artist: Anouar Brahem
Title: Souvenance
Genre: Jazz
Release Date: 2014
Label: ECM
Duration: 01:29:04
Quality: FLAC 96kHz/24bit
Source: HighResAudio

The music of Souvenance, by turns graceful, hypnotic, austere, and starkly dramatic, follows Tunisian oud-master Anouar Brahem's last ECM album, The Astounding Eyes of Rita after a five-year gap. "It took a long time to write this music," he acknowledges. Early plans to document the progress of the "Rita" quartet, which had grown to become a compellingly dynamic group in concert, were set aside. "I was feeling a need to attempt something new." Then, at the end of 2010 and the beginning of 2011, came the great political upheavals -- accompanied by "immense fears, joys and hopes" -- which began in Tunisia and swept like wildfire through the region. Fully absorbed by daily news of popular uprisings, collapsing dictatorships, insurgencies and counter-insurgencies, Brahem found his emotional world "monopolized by the political". It was not the right moment to be writing music: "I had to wait for the pressure to fall, before I could resume work".

Anouar Brahem – Le voyage de sahar (2006) [Jazz, Qobuz, FLAC 44.1kHz/24bit]

Artist: Anouar Brahem
Title: Le voyage de sahar
Genre: Jazz
Release Date: 2006
Label: ECM
Duration: 01:03:51
Quality: FLAC 44.1kHz/24bit
Source: Qobuz
Recorded: February 2005, Auditorio Radio Svizzera, Lugano

Over the past 15 years, Tunisian oud master Anouar Brahem has assembled a relatively small but profound body of work. A skilled improviser who refuses to be part of the historical authenticity argument, Brahem works from the same trio setting that performed on Le Pas du Chat Noir in 2002, with pianist Franois Couturier and accordionist Jean-Louis Matinier. The dialogue between these players is, despite the sparseness of the music and the considerable space employed, intense. The deep listening necessary in the improvised sections allows for a natural flow of ideas to emerge from silence. The compositions themselves are skeletal, with repeating, slowly evolving vamps and lyric lines. They offer, on the surface, a contemplative approach, and indeed can be heard that way. However, when dynamics, timbre, and chromatics are listened for, what takes place is rather astonishing. Each player walks to the middle of a composition, steps back and reenters after ideas by the others are introduced, producing a kind of organic improvisation seldom heard. This is not to say that the most structured works here, such as "Vague/E la Nave Va," aren't full of meditative delight as well. They are, and there are vast spaces into which the listener can enter and disappear for a while --- not so much to drift and dream as to be absorbed in their hypnotic and repetitive beauty. "Les Jardins de Ziryab" begins with Matinier's accordion, which is answered by the oud and Brahem's voice, accompanying them both. It unfolds from the center out. "Le Chambre, Var." begins, for this ensemble, at a trot. Couturier's chord voicing and Brahem's percussive approach create a winding musical narrative that Matinier's accordion underscores rhythmically. The keyboard and air pulse create a terrain where intricate melodic lines come out of modal and chromatic tensions. Ultimately, Brahem has given listeners another of his wondrous offerings, full of deceptively simple compositions that open into a secret world, one where beauty is so present that it is nearly unapproachable, and it is up to the listener to fill in the spaces offered them by this remarkable trio. --AllMusic Review by Thom Jurek

Anouar Brahem Trio – Astrakan cafe (2000) [Jazz, HighResAudio, FLAC 44.1kHz/24bit]

Artist: Anouar Brahem Trio

Label: ECM
Duration: 01:03:51
Quality: FLAC 44.1kHz/24bit
Source: HighResAudio
Recorded: June 1999, Monastery of St. Gerold, Austria

Innovative Tunisian oud virtuoso Anouar Brahem presents this highly-acclaimed album of typically Middle Eastern music, recorded in 1999 with a trio that had been his first priority for several years. The improvisational exchanges between Brahem, clarinettist Barbaros Erkse and percussionist Lassad Hosni are exceptionally fluid and the atmospheres they create here are by turns mysterious, hypnotic and dramatic.

Karrin Allyson – Many A New Day: Karrin Allyson Sings Rodgers & Hammerstein (2015) [Jazz, e-Onkyo, FLAC 96kHz/24bit]

Artist: Karrin Allyson
Title: Many A New Day: Karrin Allyson Sings Rodgers & Hammerstein
Genre: Jazz
Release Date: 2015
Label: Motéma Music LLC
Duration: 58:34
Quality: FLAC 96kHz/24bit
Source: e-Onkyo
Recorded: May 1 & 2, 2015, Sear Sound Studios, NYC

Four-time 'Best Vocal Jazz Album 'Grammy nominee Karrin Allyson's 'Many A New Day (Karrin Allyson Sings Rodgers & Hammerstein)' is a 14-song collection featuring Allyson's romantic, sly and swinging take on songs that have become part of our cultural fabric, from 'Oh, What a Beautiful Morning' to 'Happy Talk' to 'I Cain't Say No' and numerous others. The collection, which marks the singer's debut on the Motma label, features the distinctive pairing of Kenny Barron on piano and John Patitucci on bass (only the second time the two have recorded together). Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein's legendary musical partnership is among the greatest of the 20th century, resulting in such seminal Broadway productions as The King and I, South Pacific, Sound of Music, Oklahoma and Carousel. With her distinctive vocals, Allyson takes an array of these beloved songs on an elegant, intimate and joyful ride. Her arrangements, impeccably performed by Barron and Patitucci, manage to infuse these musical theater gems with a spare, sophisticated and intimate vibe that recalls the wee-hours in a late night Paris jazz club.

Etta Jones – Dont Go To Strangers (1960/2014) [Jazz, Qobuz, FLAC 44.1kHz/24bit]

Artist: Etta Jones
Title: Dont Go To Strangers
Genre: Jazz
Release Date: 1960/2014
Label: Prestige Records/Concord Music Group
Duration: 41:04
Quality: FLAC 44.1kHz/24bit
Source: Qobuz

After paying dues for over 15 years, Etta Jones (1928-2001) became an overnight sensation with the release of this, her first Prestige album. While the title song was the catalyst that fueled the singer's belated discovery, not to mention one of the few singles released by an independent jazz label of the period to attain gold record status, the remaining nine tracks give equal evidence of the spontaneous phrasing and deep emotional commitment that allowed Jones to excel with such rare consistency. Blending the influences of Billie Holiday and more blues-centered vocalists, and supported by an exceptional quintet featuring Frank Wess and Richard Wyands, Jones turned Don't Go to Strangers into the cornerstone of a career that would see her produce six more Prestige albums in the Sixties, and that kept her among the jazz vocal elite for the next four decades.

Title: Emilys D+Evolution {Deluxe Edition}
Genre: Jazz
Release Date: 2016
Label: Concord Records
Duration: 59:22
Quality: FLAC 96kHz/24bit
Source: Pono

Esperanza Spalding presents her latest project Emily's D+Evolution a rekindling of her childhood interest in theater, poetry and movement, which delves into a broader concept of performance. Taking a new approach to her on-stage persona, the remarkable Spalding taps into new creative energy, delivering musical vignettes inspired during a "sleepless night of full moon inspiration". As she puts it, "Emily is my middle name, and I'm using this fresh persona as my inner navigator. This project is about going back and reclaiming un-cultivated curiosity, and using it as a compass to move forward and expand. My hope for this group is to create a world around each song, there are a lot of juicy themes and stories in the music. We will be staging the songs as much as we play them, using characters, video, and the movement of our bodies".

Epically Cracked – Epically Cracked (2016) [Jazz, Bandcamp, FLAC 44.1kHz/24bit]

Artist: Epically Cracked
Title: Epically Cracked
Genre: Jazz
Release Date: 2016
Label: Epically Cracked
Duration: 38:00
Quality: FLAC 44.1kHz/24bit
Source: Bandcamp

Epically Cracked is among the vanguard of new artists fusing jazz, funk, rock and electronic music in exhilarating and musically rewarding ways. April Fletcher's bass is deep in the pocket, hard-grooving and emotionally poignant by turns. Andre LaFosse marries his raw yet effortlessly melodic guitar with thrilling electronic interpolations for a boundary-breaking sound brushed with psychedelia. Lisa Edelman's trumpet and flugelhorn ground the music in its jazz roots while daringly incorporating unique mind-bending distortion effects. The whole sound is punched along by Chuck van Haecke's muscular yet intensely thought-through drumming. This is a crack unit with a fully realized musical conception, well worth your time to study, contemplate, and most of all, dig. -- JazzTimes Magazine
