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

Various Interprets

In your panoramas...
Herbie Hancock - Hunt for the Funk

Along with his former employer Miles Davis, pianist Herbie Hancock is the other founding father of jazz-fusion. In 1973, his album "Head Hunters" laid down the Holy Scriptures of the most successful union of jazz improvisation and funk psychedelic trance. Afros and platform boots all around!

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.

Nordic Jazz in 10 Albums

Snowy scenes, big expanses, beautiful nature everywhere… Scandinavia is often described by the same old clichés. Jazz is no exception. We tend to talk about Scandi jazz like it’s one big genre. However, each country has its own distinct style; Denmark’s scene rivals traditional North American jazz, Norway tends to get experimental and Sweden treads the line between the two. Nordic musicians have been adding their own unique touch to the genre since the 70s and the younger generation continue to sculpt its future. Here, we zoom in on Scandinavian jazz in 10 albums, offering a glimpse into a discography that’s as wide as a fjord.
