    playlist Jazzland

    Welcome to Jazzland! My personal playlist for this genre co-curated with all you guys together. To start things off I'd like to list in retrospect all the album recommendations me and other jazz fans created over at the What Hi-Fi? forums (soon to close down). You might like some of them so give them a spin.

  3. My dad was quite a famous jazz trumpet player and I wondered if there was interest in Jazz on the forum. He was a big band leader, played with Ted Heath, Joe Loss and Humphry Littleton and I have all his boxes of music that he wrote and also have 22 music stands I built for him. Sadly he passed away 5 years ago but we just uncovered some treasures of his music recorded in 1963.
  4. Up a bit early because of Easter, I offer you a touch of late evening listening. Quercus are June Tabor (vocals), Iain Ballamy (saxes) and Huw Warren (piano) and this, their only album together so far, lies at the junction of folk, jazz and classical with a slight nod to pop. The songs and (one) instrumental range in date between the two Elizabethan ages, with lyrics from Shakespeare, Burns and Housman joined by newer verses from Barker, Ballantine, Gordon and Norbet. The arrangements are relaxed but intense, and silence is used to effect. The recording is a live one, and criticism has been made of the "breathiness" from Ballamy's sax when he tries for some low notes; personally I am happy to live with this, given the excellent recording and dynamic range (it's on ECM). The recordings were made in 2006, but the album was not released until 2013. They have gigs upcoming in Oxford on May 10th and London on May 11th - if you like the music then I strongly suggest that you see them live (http://www.brightfieldproductions.co.uk/tabor.htm). A second CD is promised for May, so it might even be available at the concerts. Have a listen and see what you think. Links: ECM player: http://player.ecmrecords.com/quercus
  5. Well, here I am again, a year down the line, pondering the WAC once more. I've decided to look at a band that for me are one of the most exciting acts currently working in the UK. Hailing from Leeds, Submotion Orchestra, according to their website, create "A kaleidoscope of electronic bass music, entrancing vocals, ambient, jazz and dub that sits somewhere on an axis between Bonobo and London Grammar. Their unique music is at once delicate and heavy, spacious and dense, highly atmospheric but firmly rooted. Earth-shaking bass and drums combine with lush keyboard and trumpet textures to create the perfect backdrop for the fragile beauty of Ruby Wood’s vocals, and the celestial effects of producer Ruckspin. Formed in Leeds in 2009, the band quickly made a splash on the wider scene. Their live gigs left audiences open- mouthed, and their debut EP on Ranking Records drew a rave reaction from Gilles Peterson. Their now-legendary weekly residency at the tiny Hukaz Bar in Leeds gave fans the unique opportunity to see the band create new material up-close and personal." Their latest album, Colour Theory, is a bit of a departure, as their regular vocalist, Ruby Wood, has taken a step back, as she recently became a mum. I love the new album, and the current incarnation of the band, but for the WAC, I'm going to go one stage back from the present, to their previous album, Alium. This album is arguably the realisation of the style that they had been steadily crafting over the previous two albums, and perhaps their most coherent work. I have seen Submotion Orchestra live twice, and I highly recommend going to see them, if you like this. They are playing a particularly special show at the Albert Hall, in November, which sadly I will be unable to attend, but it promises to be excellent, and also will apparently feature the return of Ruby! http://www.royalalberthall.com/tickets/events/2016/soundcrash-at-the-royal-albert-hall/ So there we are! I hope some people enjoy the album, or at least find it interesting. This band are what happens when virtuoso jazz musicians and a top-notch producer, decide to take the raw elements of the bass-music/dupstep era, and fuse them with live musicianship and quality songwriting. A unique act, who have been significant contributors to a live music revival born specifically from dance-music culture.
