&RPHW&RPH7R0H MESHELL NDEGEOCELLO Mercurial and masterful, Meshell Ndegeocello has survived the best and worst of what a career in music has to offer. She has eschewed genre for originality, celebrity for longevity, and musicals trends for musical truths. She has lived through the boom and bust of the industry and emerged just as she entered - unequivocally herself. Fans have come to expect the unexpected from Meshell, and faithfully followed her on sojourns into soul, spoken word, R&B, jazz, hip-hop, rock, all bound by a lyrical, spiritual search for love, justice, respect, resolution, and happiness.

Label: NAĂ?VE File Under: Rock/Pop &DWDORJXH1R19 Barcode: 3298498311112 Price: FULL PRICE Format: 1 CD Packaging: digipack

Groove driven, infectiously melodic and lyrically meditative, Meshell’s latest album, Comet, Come To Me, finds her returning to the same well of creativity that launched her career. Her 11th release, it is possibly a culmination of all previous work: lush, vocal, seeking, wise, collaborative, and driven by the signature bounce and precise pocket of Ndegeocello on bass. The album features special guests Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond) and Doyle Bramhall, along with long-time collaborators Christopher Bruce (guitar) and Jebin Bruni (keys), and Earl Harvin on drums. Assured of her place as an authentic musical thinker and an uncompromising artist, Comet continues to discover, examine, and explore all that music has to offer her and how she can return the gift.

Songs to the North Sky TIM GARLAND Songs to the North Sky is the remarkable and bold new work by Tim Garland. The first half of this double album features Lighthouse, Garland’s expandable small group celebrating a new chapter to mark its tenth year. Garland and the astonishing percussion of Asaf Sirkis are joined here by three of the most talented pianists working in jazz today: Jason Rebello, Geoffrey Keezer and John Turville. Bassist Kevin Glasgow and guitarist Ant Law are newcomers to the Lighthouse project, but typically, Garland has devised perfect spaces in which their two singular talents can flourish. Garland himself has rarely played with such exhilarating freedom. Songs to the North Sky, for orchestral strings, both jazz and classical percussion, and Garland as soloist, takes up the other half of this recording. It reflects Garland’s ten years association with (and frequent displacement from) northeast England, its constantly changing cloudscapes and wild seas.

Label: Edition Records File Under: Jazz Catalogue No: EDN1051 Barcode: 5065001530555 Price: MID PRICE Format: 2 CD Packaging: cristal CD 1: TIM GARLAND tenor and soprano sax, bass clarinet, flute; JASON REBELLO piano (tracks 2,5,7,8) ; JOHN TURVILLE piano (3,4,6); GEOFFREY KEEZER piano (1); ASAF SIRKIS drum kit, custom percussion set, Hang; ANT LAW electric and steel string guitars ( 1,3,4,6); KEVIN GLASGOW electric bass (2,5,7) CD 2: TIM GARLAND tenor and soprano sax; THE ROYAL NORTHERN SINFONIA STRINGS; ASAF SIRKIS custom percussion kit; JOHN PATITUCCI double and electric basses; NIEL PERCY tuned and classical percussion; MAGDALENA FILIPCZAK solo violin

The New Tradition Duo Art

ADAM BALDYCH & YARON HERMAN The exciting young Polish violinist and the Paris-based Israeli pianist met at an ACT event (the Jazz at the Philharmonic II project, also released this month). The chemistry was right from the outset. Two big musician personalities had found each other, and they simply had to continue on the same path from that moment on, a path called "The New Tradition": an expedition that cuts a new trail leading off from the beaten track. With total mutual trust, Baldych and Herman set new standards in contemporary jazz. Seldom has a more intense and natural collaboration been heard. Not in a struggle for supremacy, but instead masterfully and highly emotional, full of depth and soul, Baldych and Herman simply make music. And in doing so they prove that you don't need big ensembles to create magic moments. Airplay on Late Junction and BBC 6 Music (Mary Anne Hobbs; Cerys Matthews)

Play Sidney Bechet - Petite Fleur CHRISTOF LAUER & NDR BIG BAND German saxophonist Christof Lauer joins forces with the NDR Bigband for ‘Petite Fleur’, an album celebrating Sidney Bechet, one of the founding fathers of jazz. Bechet played the soprano saxophone like no other, and with his French-Creole-inspired compositions, he was a forerunner of jazz's openness to all musical styles. Unmistakable Bechet classics appear in an entirely new light thanks to Lauer's distinctive tone and the multilayered arrangements. Though Lauer is best known as a tenor saxophonist, the album begins with the soprano saxophone, and Sidney Bechet's typical vibrato is replaced by Lauer's intense and expressive sound. "It wouldn't make any sense to copy Bechet," Lauer explains. "It's about finding out how it interacts with your own world, and what energy is borne of that."

Same Girl LP YOUN SUN NAH 180g VINYL EDITION WITH HD DOWNLOAD CODE Korean singer Youn Sun Nah is a veritable super star in her homeland and in France; as evidence of her stature she was chosen to sing at the Closing Ceremony of the 2014 Winter Olympics. In the UK, with little fanfare, she has evolved into one of the best-selling artists on the ACT label alongside far better known names. Here is the first vinyl release of her second album (from 2010), Same Girl. In Youn Sun Nah, someone with star quality has stepped onto the music scene, someone who is able to forge bridges in a truly unique way. The bridge between Asia and Europe for example, or between jazz, chanson and pop; between the highest technical precision and extreme musical freedom, between minimalism and exuberance and the bridge between the familiar and the unfamiliar.

Label: ACT Music File Under: Jazz Catalogue No: ACT9024-1 Barcode: 614427902412 Price: FULL PRICE Format: 1 LP Youn Sun Nah - vocals, kalimba, music box, kazoo Ulf Wakenius - guitars Lars Danielsson - acoustic bass, cello Xavier Desandre-Navarre - percussion Special guest on track 11: Roland Brival narration

With "Same Girl" Youn Sun Nah is still on a musical voyage, exploring and experimenting with different musical styles and genres. Again the song material is very diverse, but she is still the same girl the audience has come to know and love, surprising the listener with songs that have been interpreted in highly individual and distinctive ways, and which break free from the usual stylistic constraints.

Intersecting Lines JERRY BERGONZI The title says it all. “Intersecting Lines� is about the interplay between saxophonists Jerry Bergonzi and Dick Oatts. This is an old-school blowing session in the context of hard bop and bebop, and the focus is squarely on the two horns. Bass and drum solos are few and far between -- and brief. Bergonzi's style is influenced by the titans (Coltrane, Rollins) but clearly his own. His sound and his music are a study in contrasts, juxtaposing softness with strength, simplicity with complexity. Oatts is a perfect foil; both men take unexpected twists and turns in their solos, employing sudden moves and breakneck runs with razor-sharp articulation. Though Bergonzi plays tenor and Oatts alto, it's occasionally hard to tell who's playing which line when their solos overlap. In any case, the two consistently exhibit that brazen freshness and avian freedom that contribute to jazz being 'forever young,' cogently backed by bassist Dave Santoro and drummer Andrea Michelutti.

Bloom JD ALLEN Every new recording by tenor saxophonist JD Allen serves to solidify his reputation as one of the finest, most adventurous young musicians playing today. With a gently swinging, very personal vibrato he weaves his way into territory that he has charted for himself. His unique sound on the tenor combines the elemental sadness of the blues, the solemnity of gospel and ultimately the elemental joy in the creative process. Allen plays in phrases that are somewhat short, but always interconnected. With pianist Orrin Evans, JD takes us on a intensely personal journey through an ever-changing landscape of jazz as he sees it with playing that earned Allen a blaze of critical attention signaling his ascension to the upper ranks of the contemporary jazz world.

Tales DIEGO BARBER & CRAIG TABORN Originally from Lanzarote, Canary Islands, Barber spent many years studying classical guitar and composition throughout Europe. Having performed professionally in several classical settings (including his first place win at the Classical Guitar International Contest in 2004), he moved to New York City in 2007 to pursue further study of jazz. Barber’s intent has been to bridge the divide between the genres. Craig Taborn hardly needs an introduction, as he has become one of the leading figures of the modern keyboard. His innate ability to adapt to any musical setting from jazz and fusion to contemporary experiments in improvisation and electronic music has made him a favorite of collaborators as diverse as Dave Holland, Chris Potter, Tim Berne, and Roscoe Mitchell. It was precisely this aspect of Taborn’s personality that drew Barber’s interest and appreciation.

Tales is the ultimate outcome of the meeting of two musical personalities in Diego Barber and Craig Taborn who strive to push themselves to the limits of expression.

History Sugar Dream RUSCONI Having played more than three hundred gigs since their formation in Zurich, Switzerland, RUSCONI has developed a near telepathic understanding of the dynamics that drives their individual muses. Mixing composition with improvisation, and electronic with analogue instruments, they have brought influences as disparate as Miles Davis, Pink Floyd, Can, Richard Strauss, Aphex Twin, Paul Bley, Sonic Youth and Nils Wogram to bear on a music that is nevertheless indisputably their own. “History Sugar Dream” is a celebration of RUSCONI’s anniversary as a band. It is also an exploration of the three members’ memories of a time long before they came together to make music. “This album looks back to our childhood,” says the band. “A time when dreams and hopes, fantasy and illusion, were reality. A time of untrammeled playfulness and experimentation.” Deeply refreshing in its disregard for musical boundaries, “History Sugar Dream” offers a widescreen panoramic view of planet RUSCONI.

Knou MALOUMA Hearing again the voice of Malouma Mint Meïdah, prestigious heiress of an artist family originating from the south-west of Mauritania, is a delight. This woman of convictions shook up the musical landscape of her country at the end of the 80’s, challenging conservatives and tackling social issues. Her perfect mastery of ancient vocal art as well as her taste for sounds coming from other horizons have made her an icon in her home country. She started as a songwriter for other artists before she sang reconciliation between communities and national unity in 1992. She finally rose to worldwide fame with her album Dunya (on the Marabi label). Elected member of the Mauritanian Senate in 2007, she is now willing to separate politics from her artistic career. Strengthening her commitment towards Mauritanian culture, she created her own foundation. She is also involved in environmental issues, becoming a goodwill ambassadress of the World Conservation Union (IUCN).

Tangos RUBÉN BLADES An iconic figure throughout the Spanish-speaking world, Blades is a giant of Latin music, as well as acting in 40-odd films and serving as Minister of Tourism in Panama and standing (unsuccessfully) for President. For this new recording Blades sought a new musical path and created a fascinating partnership of some of his classic salsa compositions with Argentinean tango. Blades’s interest in tango music led him to reach out to his long time friend and collaborator Carlos Franzetti, both of whom were intimately involved in the New York Latin jazz and salsa scenes of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Arranging Blades’s classic salsa material proved to be quite a difficult task. The two wanted to make sure they did justice to both the original salsa renditions and the tango tradition. The one thing that made the transition work especially well was that Blades’s lyrics were especially well suited for tango, as his message and stories could be reflected on any street in the barrios of Spanish Harlem or those of Buenos Aires.

Ruben Blades has proven himself to be one of the greatest lyricists and songwriters of our time. The idea to frame his lyrics with the tremendous arrangements of Carlos Franzetti in the tango idiom only increases the drama of his poetry.

We've seen gypsy brass band clashes before, but here's one with a difference - brass players from the Breton town of Burek merge with musicians from the Macedonian city Kocani and the bombard (the characteristic double reed pipe from Brittany) player Gaby Kerdoncuff to create a unique fusion of two cultures from the edge of Europe.

MELINGO 180g DOUBLE VINYL EDITION WITH DOWNLOAD CODE This new collection of songs from the Argentinian singer-actor could be the soundtrack to a shady underworld, conjuring up as it does a chiaroscuro labyrinth of mirrors where time stands still. Offbeat love songs, sparkling with glints of the blues and tangos of old, vagrants’ tales sprinkled with snatches of bossa nova and candombe, atmospheric melodies summoning up musical spirits, now of Duke, now of Zappa, all plunging us into Melingo’s surreal universe. In the company of his band of itinerant musician-poets, he is a free-spirited, definition-defying artist at the very zenith of his powers. Part rocker, part flamboyant crooner, with a touch of the comedian, as well as a multi-instrumentalist and composer, he bewitches us with intoxicating dreams.

"Daniel Melingo is one of the quirky celebrities of the Buenos Aires tango scene. He's a singer and actor with a gruff voice and a stage persona that veers between Charlie Chaplin and Tom Waits. But he's also an impressive multi-instrumentalist who plays guitar, keyboards and clarinet, and has set out to provide new and often experimental settings for Argentina's most celebrated dance style. As ever, he sings about his city's lowlife, and uses the persona of a linyera (a vagabond) as the starting point for his unusual and sophisticated songs. The opener, La Cancion De Linyera, is a jaunty tango driven on by the bandoneon concertina, but elsewhere he adds bluesy guitar lines and jazzy trombone, and includes a charming, crooned treatment of a song by the great Chilean singer Violeta Parra, and his own setting of a Lorca poem."
