Vilhelm Bromanders Initiativ «Allt åt alla» (Signal and Sound Records)

Cim MeyerJazz Special (Denmark):

Beekman «Vol. 2» (Ropeadope)

Cim Meyer comments:
An international outfit that comes across with many facets but still has a cohesive sound. There is more to it than just a high academic level of musicianship.

Karin Krog «The Many Faces of Karin Krog» (Odin)


Lars Mossefinn comments: 
Karin Krog celebrates her 80th anniversary by releasing this 6 CD-box. Some of these recordings go back to 1967 (with Don Ellis) and the newest is done in February 2017. The box documents that Krog has been a truly original voice in international jazz for 50 years

Paweł BrodowskiJazz Forum (Poland):

EABS «Repetitions (Letters to Krzysztof Komeda)» (Astigmatic Records)

Paweł Brodowski comments:
An intriguing concept album by a septet of young Polish musicians, reimagining Krzysztof Komeda’s compositions from 1962 – 1967, drawn from feature movies and short films, his ballet etudes and music accompanying the poems by great Polish poets. EABS stands for Electro-Acoustic Beat Session.
These innovative interpretations employ contemporary tools, samples, loopes, hip-hop, jungle and funk rhythms. One piece features a guest appearance by violinist Michał Urbaniak, a one-time member of the legendary Komeda Quintet. The album, released on CD and vinyl, includes a comprehensive 40-page booklet in English.

I’d like to select a great new album by an emerging four piece from the UK – one of the best albums I’ve heard this year.

Hoera «Beestentijd» (Granvat)

Henning Bolte comments:
Belgian trio from the inventious Antwerp scene. Bert Cools (g), Stijn Cools (dr) and Dries Laheye (b) create music in between songs and film music, jazz and soundscape. Music of an initimate mood emerging from improvisational elaborations of open compositions. Presented in a unique puzzle box.
