Saxophonist Greg Osby's previous efforts as a bandleader have included forays into song forms and jazz-funk, and have been notoriously uneven. This one, which prominently features a string quartet, is similarly frustrating. At his best, Osby demonstrates a talent that is not only open-minded but also structurally insightful; his playing on the head and in the quartet sections of "Repay in Kind" are both gorgeous, and his solos can be world-class. Similarly, the lush ballad "This Is Bliss" finds him integrating saxophone and string textures into a dense and kaleidoscopically lovely whole, layering syncopated rhythms on top of stately chord progressions and creating a work that continuously reveals itself. On the other hand, "3 for Civility" is a disaster, exactly the kind of self-indulgent noodling that drives intelligent listeners away from jazz, and "Minstrale Again (The Barefoot Tap Dance") demonstrates conclusively that Osby needs to spend less time trying to shatter expectations and more time pursuing compositional coherence. Unfortunately, the latter two examples are more typical than the former. There's no questioning either Osby's playing ability or his mastery of harmony and theory, but there's more to music than chops, harmony, and theory, and life is too short for music that's no fun.

Norah Jones en 10 chansons

Même si ses albums paraissent sur le label Blue Note, Norah Jones n’a jamais été vraiment jazz. Comme elle n’a jamais vraiment été pop, ni folk, country ou soul… Depuis le début des années 2000, la chanteuse et pianiste américaine a toujours tout fait pour flouter, voire éradiquer, les frontières stylistiques au profit de sa propre musique apatride, qu’elle adore partager avec d’autres musiciens venus d’horizons divers. Petit tour de son monde en 10 titres.

Kamasi Washington, le sax des Anges

Un triple album l’a placé au sommet en 2015 (“The Eric”), et il est revenu avec un double en 2018, le tout aussi réussi “Heaven and Earth” ! Kamasi Washington intrigue et charme par-delà la jazzosphère. Aux côtés de Kendrick Lamar et Snoop Dogg mais surtout à la tête du collectif West Coast Get Down, le charismatique saxophoniste de Los Angeles souffle un vent de folie sur la scène jazz contemporaine.

Lee Morgan, souffle court

Des hauts (sur ses disques) et des bas (dans sa vie). Lee Morgan fut le grand trompettiste du label Blue Note. Une carrière fulgurante parmi les géants du jazz, stoppée net par le pistolet de son ex-femme…
