Chet Baker – Glowing Inside

001 cover Dec-Jan16CDLeaving behind a trail of lurid headlines and prison time in the US, Chet Baker increasingly sought solace in the clubs of Europe, as recently commemorated by the release of a new double-album, Chet Baker Live In London. Recorded between 28 March to 2 April 1983 on a week-long engagement at the long defunct Canteen in Covent Garden, it reveals Baker's golden tone and stunning solos transcending his dishevelled appearance.

MAC Power Trio – Delicate Thunder

Jazzwise-November2016-Cover350The triumvirate of saxophonist/bass clarinetist David Murray, pianist Geri Allen and drummer Terri Lyne Carrington are turning the concept of a 'power trio' on its head with their latest project. Ahead of their EFG London Jazz Festival headline appearance this month, Kevin Le Gendre spoke to them about their quietly acoustic modes of subversion, captured on their long-player Perfection, its title taken from an unrecorded Ornette Coleman song, with the latter icon's revolutionary spirit inspiring the group's muscular music
