This is an impressively rich record by a quintet which has substantially broadened its musical palette. Trumpet player and composer Ambrose Akinmusire returns with this new album, The Imagined Savior is Far Easier to Paint, helped by guitarist Charles Altura of the OSSO String Quartet and singers Becca Stevens, Theo Bleckmann and Cold Specks. The Imagined Savior is Far Easier to Paint makes good on the promise of, When the Heart Emerges Glistening, Akinmusire's last album, and his first for Blue Note, and which met with considerable success. On this new album, which he produced himself, Ambrose Akinmusire subtly develops his music by putting a little less emphasis on mind-boggling solos and a little more on the compositions themselves (he is the author of twelve of the album's thirteen tracks), although he always takes care to give his bandmates the space to express themselves and improvise. © JMP/Qobuz

Rudy Van Gelder: THE Sound of Jazz

Considered to be the greatest sound engineer in the history of jazz, Rudy Van Gelder was a craftsman who worked alongside the greatest musicians of the post-war period for Blue Note, Impulse!, Prestige, CTI and Savoy.

Ornette Coleman is the question!

Great pioneer of free jazz, and majestic figure of the musical avant-garde of the 20th Century, the Texan saxophonist always inspired a strong reaction.

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.
