This is an album which has taken us by surprise. Although Mike Richmond, a 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, is no stranger, here he leads 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 and the outcome is a beautiful set.

One of those albums you can play and play and never get tired of it. Thoroughly recommended!

This newly appeared CD presents the amazing talents of alto saxophonist Cannonball Adderley in two outstanding performances, as well as previously unreleased, from his best period.

1485702481

Two very different musicians from the wide range of the jazz spectrum, Mats Gustafsson and Craig Taborn played together just once, for the 2015 edition of the Ljubljana Jazz Festival, and that explains the chosen title of this LP.

The meeting seemed improbable, but in what concerns improvisation, if the protagonists are committed explorers of spontaneity anything can happen, even the most extraordinary music. That was the case – the encounter was recorded and here it is, documented, as it should.

Particularly happy with the results, Gustafsson said in an interview: «It was like a kick in the ass; please, give me more challenges like this one, in order to keep my sanity!» Imagine the refined chords defining Taborn’s piano music.

Now, mix with it some slap-tonguing in the way only Gustafsson knows how to do with a baritone sax.
Does it sound good in your head? Well, in “Ljubljana” it sounds even better, because these two fantastic improvisers created music with their differences, entering each other’s territory. Who said art is a question of compromise? It isn’t.

This may well be the jazz album of the year and a landmark on the label as Clean Feed's number 400.

1485601380

Formed in 2001, Clean Feed has boasted an impressive discography in a few short years. Improvisers from Portugal, England, the U.S. and elsewhere make their home on the label; elder statesmen find themselves alongside greatly gifted upstarts, all rounded up with handsomely packaged albums with clear geometric graphics and artful photography; bold but simple statements in graphic design.

A refreshing and thriving label, this year, Clean Feed is celebrating its 15th anniversary, with 400 titles released and the unexpected, but hard-earned, fact to be recognized by specialized publications as well as the Jazz Journalists Association, as one of the best international jazz record labels.

Culturally, historically and aesthetically significant "Anatomy of a Murder" was one of the first mainstream Hollywood films to address sex and rape in graphic terms. The score won three Grammy Awards in 1959 with Ellington himself playing a character in the film, called Pie-Eye.
