After leaving RCA/Bluebird, avant-garde jazz trumpeter Dave Douglas started his own label, Greenleaf Music -- and the game plan was to release his own albums on Greenleaf in addition to spotlighting new artists he felt were deserving of exposure. The first non-Douglas release on Greenleaf was this self-titled CD by Kneebody, whose blend of jazz, rock, and funk demonstrates that being funky and being cerebral are not mutually exclusive. Kneebody's material isn't funky in the way that the music of the Crusaders, Charles Earland, Ronnie Laws, and Grover Washington, Jr. is funky; this isn't the type of down-home, grits-and-gravy, gutbucket soul-jazz that one associates with those artists. But Kneebody is funky in a probing, more intellectual way that brings to mind electric Miles Davis (trumpeter Shane Endsley is obviously hip to Bitches Brew and Tribute to Jack Johnson) as well as Herbie Hancock's Sextant, the group Hancock led before the Headhunters -- and there are hints of free funk on occasion (although Kneebody isn't nearly as far to the left as, say, Jamaaladeen Tacuma or Ornette Coleman & Prime Time). If this is an inside/outside project, the inside maintains the upper hand. But Kneebody certainly doesn't cater to jazz purists or bop snobs; there is way too much rock and funk in their approach for them to be considered part of the Young Lion movement that trumpeter Wynton Marsalis has been pushing since the '80s. Nonetheless, this 2005 release definitely has a jazz improviser's mentality; the solos of Endsley, saxman Ben Wendel, and keyboardist Adam Benjamin have a commitment to spontaneity that says "jazz" in no uncertain terms. Kneebody's work isn't innovative by mid-2000s standards, but it's a likable reminder of the fact that jazz doesn't have to be "pure" to be worthwhile.

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.

40 Years of Post-punk in 10 Albums

In the twilight of the ’70s, as the shrapnel of the punk explosion was still settling, the movement was already inspiring new groups. As New Wave unfurled, the post-punk movement represented a tortured, even radical turn. From pioneers Joy Division and The Fall to current bands Shame and Fontaines D.C., here’s a close-up on the landmark albums that electrified the entire music world and continue to fascinate the rock’n’roll underground.

Neoclassicism: The New World Between Classical Music and Electro

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... In recent years, these popular names have all been grouped under the vast and imprecise label "neoclassical". In truth, this "scene" looks more like a motley crew of curious artists who mix classical instruments with electronic production. Drawing influence from American minimalism, these musicians tantalise the senses and expand horizons on both sides of the musical spectrum.
