The steady stream of interesting new releases continues, pretty much unabated, and this episode of OMJ digs into some. Wadada Leo Smith entertains a quartet of the finest drummers on his 5-cd set of duo performances on his “The Emerald Duets”, while new names like Trio Xolo, pianist Meg Morley and guitarist Mike Alleman all have their new albums sampled. Veteran saxophonist Lewis Jordan is someone I haven’t played in eons, so it’s nice to see his “Critical Mass”, and it’s always nice to see new releases from Clean Feed, the favourite label around here. Their summer batch has arrived and I’ll dig into four of them – Tar Baby, Angles, Ziv Taubenfeld & Full Sun, and the Landaeus Trio from Sweden. A great lineup!
