“For better or worse”, says Duncan Bellamy, the drummer from Portico Quartet, “we have always been a group that’s quite isolated from others. We’ve never really felt linked to any scene since the day we began making music.” Since their formation in 2005, the British group have always occupied a unique space in the “young British scene”, a kind of catch-all marketing term. Spotted by Peter Gabriel who signed them to his label Real World, the group attracted the spotlight with their jazz that was infused with post-rock, ethnic influences and repeated sounds, using the technological evolution as one of the cornerstones of their project. From Radiohead to the label ECM, from E.S.T. to Steve Reich, and even exploring Burial-style dubstep and Brian Eno’s ambient sounds, Portico Quartet have never been faint-hearted. True to form, Memory Streams is rooted in these values and influences without ever being samey.For the saxophonist Jacky Wyllie, this fifth album “represents, more than any other album before it, the identity of the group and it embodies the memory of the trajectory taken over the past twelve years.” It’s an identity that revolves around the fascinating combination of a saxophone and a “hang” - an acoustic percussive instrument born in Switzerland in 2000. The mysterious mix of these two instruments combines an unparalleled lyricism with a solid rhythm. With Memory Streams, which has been released on the brilliant Mancunian label Gondwana Records, Portico Quartet’s inspired virtuosos stay on course so as to refine their unique sound and musical identity. © Max Dembo/Qobuz

With Oneness, Matthew Halsall continues his journey through modal jazz with a great spirituality. A big fan of Alice Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders, the Mancunian trumpeter and founder of Gondwana Records has gathered together here old sessions from January, March and September 2008 while he was experimenting and searching for himself. He was barely 25 years old. The tapes also focus on the birth of his Gondwana Orchestra and bring together many musicians who would later become firm favourites, such as harpist Rachael Gladwin, bassist Gavin Barras and saxophonist Nat Birchall. These recordings were kept in a box on a shelf for over a decade at Gondwana Records before Halsall thought it was time to take them down. “I’ve always treasured these recordings and loved how vulnerable, open and free they are, but I felt they were too subtle and sensitive to release early on in my career, so I held them back until now. I also feel now is the right time to release these before I begin a fresh journey with a new bunch of musicians.” Unsurprisingly, John Coltrane’s widow and her legendary album Journey In Satchidananda often comes to mind. And Matthew Halsall’s playing, which is more meditative than ever, is mainly based on exchanges with the other young musicians that surround him. This record is a beautifully moving document that he did well to dig up. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz
