Floratone's membership includes guitarist Bill Frisell, drummer Matt Chamberlain, and producers Lee Townsend and Tucker Martine. Their self-titled debut album in 2007 was the result of two years of collaborative recording, editing, sonic experimentation and re-recording. Upright bassist Viktor Krauss, trumpeter Ron Miles, and violinist/violist Eyvind Kang also contributed. The highly atmospheric musical palette breached styles from dubby reggae, country, and blues to New Orleans-styled funk and swampy rock. On Floratone II, emulating the same recording and editing process, the end result is more abstract in its production, but conversely more song-like in its structure. Miles and Kang reprise their roles. This time, however, Mike Elizondo contributed on electric and acoustic bass, and Jon Brion added keyboards and samples. Dissonances, both musical and sonic, are utilized as jelling agents to create airy but fully formed songs. Check the opener "The Bloom Is On," where Miles creates a lyric head, Frisell and Kang illustrate it, and the rhythm section highlights the groove quotient while space is added by Brion's samples and the producer's effects and loops. "Parade" is an aptly titled jazz tune, with elements of carnival and march music in its melody, stretched harmonies, and polyrhythmic pulses. Frisell's playing is lovely, finding phrases that accent the tune's humorous bent, but also its harmonic lyricism. Chamberlain's circular groove moves from in the cut to respond to basslines, effects, and keys and back again. "Move" rocks it up, with driving chords, and Chamberlain's kit rushes headlong into a controlled sonic maelstrom. The production is detailed but stays focused on the interplay between Chamberlain and Frisell. "Do You Have It" walks the line between funk and country stroll. "Gimme Some" follows a stretched blues into the twilight zone; loops and Chamberlain's deep bass drum and tom-toms highlight Elizondo's dark bassline. Frisell vamps and turns in imaginative counterpoint. The set closes on "Stand by This," a brief, languid ballad on which Frisell uses his acoustic and electric, with Miles and Kang suggesting a melody without actually stating one. Chamberlain's sparse kit work and the effects expand the space around it all. Floratone II is a sonically more adventurous, yet more musically focused album than its predecessor.

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.

Bill Evans in 10 Albums

Without him, Keith Jarrett, Brad Mehldau and a few thousand other jazz pianists would play differently. Forty years after his death, the legacy of Bill Evans hasn’t lost any of its influence. On the contrary, it is difficult to sort through his bottomless discography without finding even an incidental recording that doesn’t tower above 90% of the competition. Here are 10 of his albums, subjectively selected…

The New British Jazz Scene in 10 Albums

They know their classics like the back of their hands though they certainly don’t hold back from exploring all kinds of genres, making for a wonderfully eclectic sound. Here we look back over ten essential albums.
