This episode of One Man’s Jazz is packed with exciting new releases, led by the duo of saxophonist James Brandon Lewis and drummer Chad Taylor. Their live set recorded at the Willisau Festival is definitely a must-have. Energy, passion and commitment! Loved it from the first note. Finnish trumpeter’s Verneri Pohjola’s “The Dead Don’t Dream” debuts as does another duo of highly skilled improvisers: cellist Tomeka Reid and pianist Alexander Hawkins.  And yet another duo, this time trombonist Samuel Blaser and guitarist Marc Ducret, are in teasing mode, releasing only one track every couple of weeks. Pianists Andy Milne and Denman Maroney have new albums, as does a very interesting bassist from Germany, Reza Askari.  Add in Irish drummer Steve Davis’ band, Filipino guitarist Karl Evangelista, and the Ombak Trio from Slovenia/Italy and what you get is a show that will make you hold on to your socks!
