Viktor Bensusan,

Macadam: SCHROTROOP (Sdban Ultra)

Jazz improvisation may be considered as the recycling of melodies ranging from standard songs to brand new compositions. The junk jazz trio from the Belgian city of Ghent (schrootoop translates as junk yard) improvises not only on melodies but the instruments themselves.

Nuno Catarino,

Mário Costa: CHROMOSOME (Clean Feed)  

CHROMOSOME features an international super-quartet: Mário Costa (d, comp), Bernoît Delbecq (p), Bruno Chevillon (b) and Cuong Vu (tp). Costa's staves have a remarkable care and rhythmic detail, but also a great melodic intelligence; stimulating compositions without rounded corners that harmonize knowledge and intuition. Each musician takes an important part to this music, without secondary or main musicians, without background and front; they are all giving with intensity on the same level.

Moss Freed & Union Division: MICROMOTIVES  (Discus)

This is an important album with a group of improvisers led by Moss Freed (g) and featuring top UK players such as Steve Beresford, Laura Jurd, Rachel Musson and Elliot Galvin. We hear a development of the conduction technique, in which any member of the ensemble is free to take the music in a different direction through an agreed set of signals. A strong album full of innovative and challenging music.

Rymden + KORK: RYMDEN + KORK (Jazzland)

Since forming in 2018 Rymden has established itself as one of the leading piano trios to ever emerge from the Nordic Jazz scene. On the new album they work together with KORK, an orchestra capable of responding to the trifold creative power that Rymden vigorously generates. The combination of Rymden and KORK brings even greater contrast to music that already had its fair share of light and shade and brings a broader textural palette that enriches and defamiliarizes the compositions.

Luise Volkmann: RITES DE PASSAGE (Nwog)

German Luise Volkmann (s, comp) releases her biggest project to date. This ensemble brings together improvising musicians, contemporary musicians, and techno remixers. At the crossroads of contemporary music – opera with voices – and pure improvisation, this album is a composition in itself.
The Francophile conductor has collected recordings (often live) from the last five years to create a suite. With a very woody color of the whole (recorders, violins, violas, cellos, pianos), the music is interspersed with moments of more airy cuts of voice, flute, saxophone and trombone.
The electronic interventions, the sung and spoken texts, the moments of orchestral tension give this music a perfect coherence. The seams of this fitting whole are invisible. Even if the nine tracks form the necessary divisions to reveal the different works of the mix, their arrangement does not detract from the narrative. It moves from dense and structured passages to ethereal tracks, forming a new story from the various red threads that creep like ivy.
This is the pure beauty of crossbreeding and fusion, each element brings richness, and this record is like a diamond with many faces.

Buster Williams: UNALOME (Smoke Sessions)

Luca Vitali, Giornale della Musica

Luca Sguera: PIANO, EXPLODED (Shhpuma)

Yves Tassin, JazzMania

Aka Moon: QUALITY OF JOY (Outhere).

After 30 years together, we can still learn from each other.

Jos Demol,

Albert Vila: LEVITY (Hypnote)

This is a world class album; inventive arrangements which get straight to the heart of solo jazz guitar, beautifully played and recorded. (Stephen Godsall)

Christof Thurnherr, Jazz’n’More


Kaspars Zavileiskis,

Waan: ECHO ECHO (Sonar Kollektiv)

An exciting journey through the expanses of electro jazz, lending itself to both peaceful and party territories. The Dutch duo WAAN (a Dutch word literally meaning “delusion” but in the positive sense of “living in the moment”) has united Bart Wirtz (s) and Emiel van Rijthoven (key). Their debut album also features guest artists. For example, Oscar de Jong from the compatriot electro funk band Kraak & Smaak. The atmosphere of freestyle jam, leisure, and the desire to search for new horizons can be felt all the way. Including in the instrumentation, the list of which is even embellished by a guiro – a Mexican percussive instrument made from an animal’s jaw! The name of the album symbolizes both the distant horizons and the interplay between the two duet members – they really sound like the echo of each other’s echo. Although the album uses a lot of electronics, this is primarily a jazz record, where the main condition is the freedom of improvisation. You can hear a lot of different influences here – from Floating Points to BadBadNotGood. Result is even very good!

Jacek Brun,

Susanne Lundeng. FØLGE (Grappa)

It is difficult to classify or summarize this album in a few words. It is an orderly, thoroughly balanced, and calm work. There is no hurry, no rush in this album. There are meanderings of the violin that plunge into infinite space, there are sound expanses of the guitar. What prevails is calm, melancholy, the Zen of everyday life, concentration on the here and now, acceptance of oneself and the world as it is.

Jaak Sooäär / Ara Yaralyan / Markku Ounaskari: ZULA (AVA Muusika)

Marius Gjersø: YÛGEN (NXN)


Krzysztof Komorek, Donos kulturalny


New Polish-Norwegian quartet with their debut recordings. The band was created during The International Jazz Platform meeting in Oslo. Four young musicians including drummer Patrycja Wybrańczyk – she was one of the heroines  of #womentothefore 2023 project.

Jan Granlie,


The festival newspaper FireFlate gave the concert with the two brothers from Molde a really bad review. But salt peanuts really loved the record. Having improvised together since they were children, the Skeidsvoll brothers have developed a strong musical connection that they constantly seek to develop, challenge, and explore. All the music is freely improvised, and it moves from high energy bursts of happiness to calm soundscapes and everything in between, but often with a tonal core. Lauritz Heitmann Skeidsvoll (s) and Isach Skeidsvoll (p) are two of the most interesting, young jazz musicians in Norway right now, and this recording proves how well the two know each other’s musical thoughts and ideas, and how creative and exciting they are in their daring playing.
