Swiss drummer Daniel Humair is the de facto leader on this all-star meeting at Town Hall in New York City during the 1988 JVC Jazz Festival, featuring pianists Joachim Kühn and Martial Solal, multi-reed player Michel Portal, bassist J.F. Jenny-Clarke, and guitarist Marc Ducret. Kühn opens the set with his tense "From Time to Time Free," which incorporates elements of both post-bop and free jazz in a furious trio setting with Humair and Jenny-Clarke. Kühn's next piece, the ballad "Easy to Read," is less demanding of the listener, though the pianist still shows off his formidable technique with numerous outbursts of rapid-fire runs. Solal takes over for a long medley that begins with the standard "Here's That Rainy Day" but soon detours into wild territory by playing "Things Ain't What They Used to Be" in one hand and basic piano exercises in the other, wrapping up this exhausting feature with "A Night in Tunisia." Portal contributes two numbers, including the quirky "Pastor," in which he plays darting phrases on bass clarinet, tightly accompanied by the rhythm section. Kühn's finale, "Changement," is a bizarre mix of post-bop, Latin rhythms, and tango that proves infectious, with Portal's bandoneon sharing the lead with the pianist. Full of surprises, this Label Bleu CD has lapsed from print and is becoming increasingly difficult to find.

Tango: Sounds of the Río de la Plata

Rooted in dance and eventually becoming its very own artistic movement, the history of tango is an epic one; and its future truly looks limitless. A musical genre with hybrid origins, it remains one of the most incredible creations to come out of Río de la Plata. “It’s the only thing we don’t ask Europe for its opinion on,” wrote Argentina’s Macedonio Fernández, the man that young Jorge Luis Borges admired “to the point of devout and passionate plagiarism.” A number of coincidences in the late 19th century gave rise to this style of music. As musicologist Carlos Vega said: "no one really tried to create tango." And yet, here it is; complete with its own traditions and innovations, as well as its own golden age, ill-fated artists, myths and rituals.

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.

Kamasi Washington, the Sax of Angels

After his major success with a triple album, he went on to repeat this with a double one! Kamasi Washington charms and intrigues well beyond the jazz sphere. Working with Kendrick Lamar and Snoop Dogg, and most importantly as the head of the West Coast Get Down collective, the charismatic saxophonist from Los Angeles brings an incredible wave of excitement to the contemporary jazz scene.
