Swiss saxophonist Co Streiff leads this quartet through an organic, multi-directional program inspired by her travels to the Libyan desert, namely a depression (Qattara) that was once the bottom of a sea. Streiff and her associates cover quite a bit of musical terrain here, yet the band maintains a sense of identity throughout. On this release, the listener will notice traces of New Orleans brass band-type stylizations to coincide with the soloists' fiercely executed, modern jazz-based exchanges. The divergent track mix features African rhythms complete with Ben Jeger's rather fluffy accordion work on the trance-like piece titled "Second Celebration." The sextet embarks upon free-form escapades as well, amid the musicians' exuberant workmanship. Streiff is a melodic soloist, whether performing on alto or soprano saxophones. But Jeger's inclusion of a clavinet and an old Farfisa organ produces a late-'60s psychedelic touch on works such as "Siwa." Nonetheless, this is a captivating effort from beginning to end.

Miles Davis in 10 albums

Thirty years after his death, Miles Davis is still one of the most important musicians of his time. The trumpeter's impressive discography perfectly sums up his perpetually questioning, probing attitude; and also shows how his influence reaches out beyond the world of jazz. These ten albums, selected subjectively from a sea of revolutionary works, are testament to that fact.

Bossa nova, the Eternal Wave

Since its creation in the late 1950s, Bossa-nova has become an indispensable part of Brazilian music. The style’s strong evocative power won over artists from all around the world and earned recognition for many first-rate musicians whose works are now seen as classics.

The Struggles of Nina Simone

Although today she is seen as one of the most original voices in jazz and soul, Nina Simone's life was anything but a smooth and gentle climb to the top. The woman who dreamed of being the first black American classical pianist had to struggle against others, against her own family, and even against herself.
