With Maisha, you don’t even need to get up to go travelling. Halfway between jazz-fusion and afrobeat, this ambitious project filled with mystery is led by drummer Jake Long. An exploration of atypical worlds as well as dreamlike and exotic atmospheres, There Is A Place brings together no less than six (excluding Long) musicians acting as tour guides: Amané Suganami (keyboards), Twm Dylan (double bass), Tim Doyle and Yahael Camara-Onono (percussions), Shirley Tetteh (guitar) and Nubya Garcia (flute and saxophone). Announced in the opening of We Out Here, a compilation released in February 2018 focused on the buzzing and young London jazz scene (a Qobuzism album!), Maisha show the depth of their musical ability here. And when the Londoners have run out of real places to inspire their music, they simply make them up, switching to spiritual jazz. 

Maisha carry an intense cultural heritage. Inspired for the most part by prominent figures such as Sun Ra, Pharoah Sanders and the Coltrane couple (John and Alice), this album turns into a passionate homage, oscillating between airy melodies and pimped-up rhythms. With a splash of surf music and reggae as well as jazz guitars that dive into oriental sounds, the septet offers an intimate immersion into their secret garden. Quite fitting, as the album’s title is a direct reference to a small park where Jake Long likes retreating to. Five tracks − one of which hits the eleven minute mark – to paint five different landscapes. Progressive trance on Osiris with tribal tom-toms, flute melodies for the Zen atmosphere of a Japanese garden on Azure, and even investigative jazz that would be perfect for a detective-film soundtrack on Kaa: the panoramas keep flying by. A promising first album worth listening to on repeat for an endless stream of new imagery. © Clara Bismuth/Qobuz

The New British Jazz Scene in 10 Albums

Hard bop, hip hop, free jazz, groove, electro, calypso, experimental or Caribbean: the key players of the new British jazz scene are open to everything. 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.

Miles Davis, Fingers in The Plug Socket

In 1968, Miles Davis succumbed to the charm of the electricity fairy. Bewitched by the psychedelic and funky revolutions of Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone, the trumpet player made a radical change and, in passing, changed jazz too.

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.
