With Oneness, Matthew Halsall continues his journey through modal jazz with a great spirituality. A big fan of Alice Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders, the Mancunian trumpeter and founder of Gondwana Records has gathered together here old sessions from January, March and September 2008 while he was experimenting and searching for himself. He was barely 25 years old. The tapes also focus on the birth of his Gondwana Orchestra and bring together many musicians who would later become firm favourites, such as harpist Rachael Gladwin, bassist Gavin Barras and saxophonist Nat Birchall. These recordings were kept in a box on a shelf for over a decade at Gondwana Records before Halsall thought it was time to take them down. “I’ve always treasured these recordings and loved how vulnerable, open and free they are, but I felt they were too subtle and sensitive to release early on in my career, so I held them back until now. I also feel now is the right time to release these before I begin a fresh journey with a new bunch of musicians.” Unsurprisingly, John Coltrane’s widow and her legendary album Journey In Satchidananda often comes to mind. And Matthew Halsall’s playing, which is more meditative than ever, is mainly based on exchanges with the other young musicians that surround him. This record is a beautifully moving document that he did well to dig up. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Keith Jarrett’s American Quartet

At the start of his busy career Keith Jarrett spent seven years carrying out all manner of crazy experiments with his American Quartet. Between the years of 1971 and 1976 the pianist, alongside Charlie Haden, Paul Motian and Dewey Redman, ran some kind of mad laboratory, in which the genres of hard bop, free-jazz, world and avant-garde would all come together. A spontaneous and interesting time worth rediscovering.

Santana: The Tijuana Lizard

Santana’s CV boasts an iconic Woodstock performance, a dozen Grammy Awards, millions of record sales (thanks to his metamorphosis into a Latin pop star), and more and more prestigious collaborations... He’s one of those artists that everyone loves - peers, public and critics alike. Here, we explore the life of an accomplished artist who is constantly renewing himself, much like a lizard shedding its skin.

Frank Zappa, for Better or for Laughs

The more time that goes by since Frank Zappa’s passing on December 4, 1993, the more his absence is cruelly felt in the music world. It's not that we have forgotten him, but we have been searching in vain for someone to fill his boots. Frank Zappa’s genius, both cosmic and comical, has no equivalent today, this is because no one, in almost three decades, has been able to combine such a high level of musical talent with such a brilliant sense of humor. Something Zappa did so well.
