Tonight at Noon: Three of Four Shades of Love marks the 80th anniversary of Charles Mingus' birth and is the seventh recording in a series that pays tribute to his music. The CD features the talents of the Mingus Big Band, a 14-piece rotating ensemble launched in 1991 by the widow of the composer/arranger/bassist, Sue Mingus. The thematic focus of the CD is love and its ten love songs also mark the debut of the Charles Mingus Orchestra, which is featured on four of the songs. The previously unreleased "Love's Fury" features a stellar arrangement by Syl Johnson as well as the very lyrical compositions Charles Mingus never quite received recognition for. Known primarily for his aggressive bebop basslines, these rarely performed compositions are dramatically and beautifully voiced by soloists -- trumpeter Randy Brecker and Craig Handy on "Love Is a Dangerous Thing" and sung emotively by Elvis Costello on his newly penned lyrics for "Invisible Lady," and "Ku-umba" Frank Lacy on the blues-drenched "Black Saint & Sinner Lady." Best bets are the nine-minute "Passions of a Woman Loved" for its pure entertainment and swing value; the four orchestra pieces beginning with the beautiful ballad "Noon Night," a piece originally orchestrated by Günter Schuller for the 1989 Epitaph project of concerts; the title track "Tonight at Noon" for its horn arrangements and upbeat solos from Alex Sipiagin and drummer Jeff "Tain" Watts; the samba arrangement of "Eclipse," which makes this song a delight and a reason to keep listening; and Elvis Costello's passionate new version of "Invisible Lady." Boris Koslov and Andy McKee bring their bass lifestyles into each song with the spirit of a live stage performance and allow listeners to revel in their chord positions. This tribute tops previous efforts due to the inclusion of the new Charles Mingus Orchestra and Sue Mingus' tender focus on the gentler side of an artistic genius. A must-have for Charles Mingus enthusiasts.

Paolo Fresu in 10 Albums

Paolo Fresu is a stream. Of elegance. Of music. Of textures of sound. Of records. But above all, of meetings. His name appears on more than 300 albums, each more varied than the last. But the Sardinian trumpeter has always remained a craftsman of a lyrical jazz, refined and elegant. Shockingly elegant even! For his 60th birthday, which he will celebrate on February 10, we take a look back at a very subjective selection of ten of his albums...

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.

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.
