New Love

Charnett Moffett

Jazz - Verschenen op 11 juni 2021 | Motema

Hi-Res
The third collaboration between bassist Charnett Moffett and guitarist Jana Herzen, 2021's New Love finds the duo exploring an expansive and intimate, fusion-influenced sound. Both a creative and romantic partnership, Moffett and Herzen (who married in 2020) have been making music together since 2007's Passion of a Lonely Heart. That album featured Herzen's warm vocals, and found them reinterpreting a mix of jazz standards, along with Herzen's folky original songs. It was a style they further developed on 2020's Round the World, investigating compositions by Joni Mitchell and the Beatles. While New Love is very much a continuation of their partnership, it shines a light on bassist Moffett's progressive jazz roots and finds Herzen (primarily a singer/songwriter) pushing her guitar chops to new heights. While it's their core bass and guitar combination that drives the album, they also expand their sound, bringing along drummers Corey Garcia and Malick Koly, as well as saxophonist Irwin Hall. The record also finds Moffett taking to the mic and showcasing his gentle voice as he does on the vibrant title track. New Love has an engaging psych-rock influence that feels connected to bands like Mahavishnu Orchestra and the '70s work of artists like Pat Metheny and Larry Coryell. A technically adept acoustic and electric bassist, Moffett built his reputation playing hard-swinging post-bop with luminaries like Wynton Marsalis, Stanley Jordan, Kenny Garrett, and others. Focusing on the electric bass here and often playing the lead melody line, his playing has a lithe, joyous quality that brings to mind the work of bassists like Jaco Pastorius and Steve Swallow. Herzen follows suit, her electric hollow-body guitar dancing in ebullient tandem with Moffett's buoyant bass lines. Many of their songs have simple, lyrical melodies that they accent with delicate interplay. New Love is a joyously intimate album that feels like Moffett and Herzen are playing as much for each other as for the listener. © Matt Collar /TiVo

Daring Mind

Jihye Lee Orchestra

Jazz - Verschenen op 26 maart 2021 | Motema

Hi-Res
For the most part, the folks who have made the greatest strides in composing jazz music in recent decades have been accomplished players who have translated their performance skills into crafting stunning new pieces of music. The idea of a jazz composer whose primary role is writing and arranging a piece and then conducting a band in that piece's performance is a unique one in this day and age. Heck, even Duke Ellington was a best-in-class pianist who held his own with his firecracker bands, and more contemporary composers like Carla Bley and Michael Mantler are exceptional practitioners on their instruments. All of which is to say, South Korea native Jihye Lee is something of an anomaly, made even more special because her earliest musical career was as an indie pop singer-songwriter who didn't even have an interest in jazz composition until a decade ago when she enrolled in Berklee and soon after won the Duke Ellington Prize. In other words, despite not having a background as a player (or even singer!) of jazz, Jihye Lee clearly has both an affinity and a special approach to composing pieces for jazz bands, as evidenced by the superlative pieces within Daring Mind, her second album. Conducting a 16-piece orchestra through nine original compositions, Lee avoids anything remotely resembling a jazz cliché, utilizing this ultra-brassy ensemble (four trumpets, three trombones, four saxophones, ) to lush, immersive effect, rather than engaging in swingtime revisionism. The effect is an enveloping, almost narrative approach to the material; despite all of the players' impressive precision and inarguable instrumental facility, Daring Mind feels less like a big band album than it does the soundtrack to a very specific and highly imaginative movie. Although the nine compositions were written for different purposes and at different times, they feel remarkably consistent in tenor and tone. Lee is absolutely swinging for the fences a couple of times here—most notably on the longer cuts like the near-10-minutes-long "Unshakable MInd" as well as on the dreamy and complex "GB"—and consistently knocks it out of the park when she does. An incredibly impressive album that's as surprising as it is satisfying. © Jason Ferguson/Qobuz
