Since 2012, British musician Angus Fairbarn, aka Alabaster DePlume, has slowly but surely been constructing his own unique opus in which he is completely free to do as he pleases: he sings, plays the saxophone, talks, wanders around… Seeing his name in the International Anthem roster is encouraging (it’s a label he shares with Makaya McCraven, Jaimie Branch, Ben LaMar Gay, Angel Bat Dawid and Jeff Parker), and sets the tone for his music which often sounds similar to the late Arthur Russell’s. Completely off the wall, To Cy & Lee: Instrumentals Vol.1 brings together eleven instrumentals recorded over the course of eight years, which borrows from various styles, including intimate jazz, folk, Oriental music, soundtracks to animated Japanese films and a whole host of other elements that, when assembled together, form an image based on storytelling, travelling and sharing. A strange but beautiful kind of jazz. ©️ Max Dembo/Qobuz

Tango: Sounds of the Río de la Plata

Rooted in dance and eventually becoming its very own artistic movement, the history of tango is an epic one; and its future truly looks limitless. A musical genre with hybrid origins, it remains one of the most incredible creations to come out of Río de la Plata. “It’s the only thing we don’t ask Europe for its opinion on,” wrote Argentina’s Macedonio Fernández, the man that young Jorge Luis Borges admired “to the point of devout and passionate plagiarism.” A number of coincidences in the late 19th century gave rise to this style of music. As musicologist Carlos Vega said: "no one really tried to create tango." And yet, here it is; complete with its own traditions and innovations, as well as its own golden age, ill-fated artists, myths and rituals.

Betty Davis, The Funk Panther

Without her, there would be no Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse or Janelle Monáe! Gone to heaven, Betty Davis remains the pioneer of feline soul sisters. The funk goddess par excellence. She was also one of the leading ladies in a certain Miles Davis' life, whose wife she would be for a short time. But who really were you Betty?

Ornette Coleman is the question!

Great pioneer of free jazz, and majestic figure of the musical avant-garde of the 20th Century, the Texan saxophonist always inspired a strong reaction.
