This is a pretty interesting show filled with lots of newer recordings: trumpeter Kirk Knuffke presents his trio in a live setting, the Bimhuis in Amsterdam, while Manila-based saxophonist Rick Countryman and Japanese drummer Sabu Toyozumi tear up the landscape also in a live setting; guitarist Joel Harrison turns his attention to the warring-prone United States; Quebec pianist Emie R Roussel makes her OMJ debut, and blistering alto saxophonist Lakecia Benjamin pays homage to the music of John and Alice Coltrane. A couple of independent jazz record labels drop some new releases for sampling: Driff Records from Boston and Shoebill Music from Berlin. Lots of wonderful newer things too from saxophonists Oded Tzur and Ohad Talmor (this one is exciting!), and an out-there trio from Portugal in the persons of Sergio Tavares, Nuno Trocado & Tom Ward too. Enjoy!
