Noel McGhie, a little-known Anglo-Jamaican drummer who is hugely popular with free jazz fans, moved to Paris in the early 70s. A worthy heir to Max Roach and Rashied Ali, McGhie even composed music for the Spaniard Fernando Arrabal and became Steve Lacy’s favourite drummer, another exile in the French capital. Other avant-garde musicians soon called on him: François Tusques, Archie Shepp, Bobby Few, Byard Lancaster, Mal Waldron, Anthony Braxton, Alan Silva and Chico Freeman. In 1971, McGhie even featured on Colette Magny’s album Répression! Surprisingly, his album Trapeze (released in 1975) was more like funk than free jazz. With saxophonist Jorge Joao, trumpeter Itaru Oki, electric pianist Georges-Edouard Nouel and bassist Louis Xavier, he produced a wonderful, groovy, 70’s-style score that way surpassed most American productions of that time. A jazz fusion gem that should be rediscovered immediately! © 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.

Jazz: A Woman's World

Excluding singers, women in jazz haven’t had an easy time making their way to the front of the stage. There are of course the likes of Mary Lou Williams, Jaimie Branch, Geri Allen and Alice Coltrane. But up until recently, female jazz artists have been few and far between in the male-dominated and at times rather sexist genre.

Billie Holiday, the Dark Blues

A soul drenched in blues, a broken heart and a battered body, Billie Holiday is still the ultimate representation of silk-laced suffering. A century after her birth, Lady Day is still undeniably the most iconic singer in the history of jazz music.
