"Otis Brown III ‘The Thought of You - Part I’ "…

Debut with a majestic roll call…Otis Brown III - “The Thought of You” (2014). Joyful & energetic rhythms. Otis Brown makes a convincing case of modern, experiential jazz. Personal & extrovert, soulful and passionate. Robert Glasper has his footprint spread around and Gretchen Parlato shines out! Highly recommended

"Broetzmann/Adasiwicz/Edwards/Noble - ‘Mental Shake’ (excerpt)”…

Bright, aggressive avant-garde… Brötzmann, Adasiewicz, Edwards & Noble - “Mental Shake” (Otoroku, 2014). Jolting improvisation, hardly for the faint-hearted, yet highly sophisticated and performed in a rhythmic frenzy…Highly recommended for uneasy minds…

Jason Adasiewicz / vibraphone
John Edwards / double bass
Steve Noble / drums

"X-T1 and Nikkor - A Creative Match"…
A series of photos taken with my Fujifilm X-T1 sporting an old Nikkor 28mm, f/3.5 Ai via a Metabones Adapter II. The results are more than satisfying, with images being quite sharp from edge to edge. There is also the pleasant feeling of that vintage Nikkor touch, smartly added to Fujifilm colour profiles…

"Night Moves"…
Testing an old Nikkor 28mm, f/3.5 AI on the Fujifilm X-T1 with a Metabones Lens Mount Adapter II. The 28mm becomes a “natural” field of view 42mm lens with an almost razor-sharp profile…

" Jason Moran featuring Meshell Ndegeocello - "Ain’t Misbiheavin’" "…

A conceptual tribute…Jason Moran -“All Rise: A Joyful Elegy For Fats Waller” (2014). Moody, modal, stormy. A mesmerising dance celebration of Fats Waller, amazingly executed by Jason Moran, Meshell Ndegeocello & guests…Modern, electric and highly recommended indeed…

" ‘Beyond’ - Ollie Howell Quintet "…

A fine post-bop debut…Ollie Howell - “Sutures and Stiches” (2013): Dynamic flow & elegiac presentation. Young Ollie Howell & his 5tet are definitely sharp performers with a stunningly mature attitude especially when matching their individual contributions into a spiraling crescendo…Highly recommended

"Omer Klein Trio at Nancy Opera House"…

A delicate flame of original inspiration…Omer Klein - “To The Unknown” (2013). Timed & spacious creativity by a John Zorn protege. Omer Klein Trio builds engaging rhythms on exciting modernity and global tradition alike…Highly recommended (and perfect companion to a meticulously prepared dry martini)…
