Christine Tobin – Poetry on Main Street

001 cover Dec-Jan16CDWith her close poetic ties, its unsurprising that the music of singer Christine Tobin is so ripe with striking lyrical artistry and imagery. Her armful of Parliamentary, BASCA and Herald Angel awards, as well as her 10 solo albums to date have more than proved her to be among the UK's very best. Now realising her ambition to live and work in New York, she's back with a new album, Pelt, a striking genre-hopping collection of songs featuring the verse of acclaimed Irish poet Paul Muldoon artfully set to an ever-shifting score. Peter Quinn spoke to the Irish-born singer songwriter about this challenging process and sought out the reasons behind her move to the birthplace of modern jazz

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. Roy Carr draws on past interviews with Baker and the musicians who performed with him on those London dates to explore a pivotal phase in the troubled trumpet-player's life

David S Ware – Downtown Deity

001 cover Dec-Jan16CDThe late David S Ware, who died in October 2012, emerged from New York's 1970s loft scene to become a champion of free jazz principles. Even his dalliance with a major label could do nothing to quench his indomitable fire, as he continued to sustain and develop the ideas previously laid out by pioneers such as John Coltrane, Albert Ayler and Cecil Taylor. Philip Clark surveys Ware's questing music and spoke to pianist Matthew Shipp to assesses the iconoclastic saxophonist's lasting legacy as documented on a series of archival recordings issued by the Brooklyn-based AUM Fidelity imprint

Wolfgang Muthspiel – Waltzing with Grace

Wolfgang Muthspiel's musical journey has taken him from Austria to America and, with that relocation, a shift from classical climes to the heart of the New York jazz scene. Stuart Nicholson spoke to the much-lauded guitarist about the importance of asserting native identity in an increasingly globalised world and the making of Rising Grace his latest album for ECM

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
