Dianne Reeves

Beautiful Life

Dianne Reeves is one of the preeminent female jazz vocalists in the world. The album "Beautiful Life" showcases Reeves’ sublime gifts by melding elements of R&B, Latin and pop within the framework of 21st Century jazz. There should be no overlooking Beautiful Life, a journey of 12 songs which includes singularly memorable covers of Bob Marley’s "Waiting in Vain," Fleetwood Mac’s "Dreams," Marvin Gaye’s "I Want You" and Ani DiFranco’s self-empowering "32 Flavors."

Madeleine Peyroux

The Blue Room

Madeleine Peyroux’s new album, ‘The Blue Room’, sees the genre blending singer reworking some landmark musical gems, in a repeat collaboration with long time Peyroux producer Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell, Walter Becker, Tracy Chapman, Herbie Hancock.) The result is a sophisticated album that rather than just ‘cross over’, seamlessly fuses musical styles together to create an entirely new sound. "Madeleine is at a nexus of styles, blending Jazz, Blues, Country and Pop"

Tigran

Shadow Theater

Tigran Hamsayan seems possessed by the idea of making the spectrum of his music as broad as possible. The album Shadow Theater is also limpid in appearance, and it brims over with dozens of the figurines which inhabit the pianist's head, from Madlib to Sigur Rós via Steve Reich. With this record, the young Armenian is still exploring new trails, both sonic and electronic; and it also asserts his claim as a hair-raising songwriter/singer whose voice has the timbre of fragility.

Jacky Terrasson

Gouache

Twenty years after Jacky Terrasson began making records, he is back with new album ‘Gouache’, a celebration of his illustrious career. One of the most talented pianists of his generation, the repertoire here, as usual, is deliberately eclectic; it doesn't lock itself away inside any conventional aesthetic. Two notable guests join him on this project, two French jazz figures with whom Jacky Terrasson has had nourishing exchanges over the years: clarinettist Michel Portal, his partner in many duet-concerts in recent times; and trumpeter Stéphane Belmondo. From the colours of the Caribbean to swing, from New York to the streets of Paris, from electric to acoustic and duet to quintet, this new album from Jacky Terrasson bubbles with life and energy, proving that his fieriness is still intact, and his appetite for music still entire.
