Patricia Barber, Higher was released on March 15, 2019.

 

"For four decades, Chicago pianist Patricia Barber has been quietly, but steadily, creating her own unique brand of music.

Higher, the bandleader’s first new recording in six years, merges jazz harmonies and rhythms with classical art song and erudite poetry, and features “Angels, Birds And I ...”—an ambitious song cycle—alongside a few jazz standards."

Lunar Clock, The Scream Of Nature was released on April 12, 2020.

 

"Dutch progressive project Lunar Clock releases a conceptual album inspired by the paintings of Edvard Munch."

 

I couldn't find a review on the web, so here goes.

 

Each track reminds me of another band. The first track reminds me of Bohemian Rhapsody, because of the harmonies, but it is very different. The second track brings Pink Floyd to mind. The guitar part is very David Gilmour like. The third track reminds me of Emerson Lake & Palmer because of the keyboards... then Jethro Tull... and so it goes with the entire album. I enjoyed this album, but it most likely won't get played much. If I want to hear Queen, I'll play Queen. The same goes for Pink Floyd, ELP, and Jethro Tull. 

 

If you like progressive rock, you'll most likely enjoy this album too. This album gets a 6.5 on the Sk1Bum 10 point scale.

Glenn Zaleski, The Question was released on July 17, 2020.

 

"Zaleski has just released a beautiful new album called The Question, this time in a quintet format. The title refers to the questions and uncertainties of a young man who turned 30 in the summer of 2019, on the verge of new fatherhood and responsibilities. Walks with his wife in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park and visits to The Vale of Cashmere last summer found Zaleski meditating on this transitional moment in his life and conceiving material for a quintet."

Too Slim & The Taildraggers, The Remedy was released on July 17, 2020.

 

"With 10 originals and one cover by Elmore James, The Remedy is a dynamic blues-infused rock and roots album, that once again proves the songwriting mettle of this hard-driving trio. Visual storytelling abounds, brought to life by multiple award-winner Tim Langford (Too Slim) on guitar and vocals, Zach Kasik on bass and vocals, and Jeff “Shakey” Fowlkes on drums. This time out, there are guest appearances from harmonica players Jason Ricci, Richard “Rosy” Rosenblatt and Sheldon Ziro. And what wonderful additions to the mix they are. Recorded in Nashville at Zach Kasik’s Wild Feather Recording studio, The Remedy is produced by the band."

FourTet, Sixteen Oceans was released on March 13, 2020.

 

"Four Tet's 10th album, Sixteen Oceans, begins on the dancefloor, travels to the woods, and ends becalmed, invoking, and bestowing peace and tranquility.

 

It is hard to believe that Kieran Hebden has been making music as Four Tet for over 20 years and that Sixteen Oceans is his tenth album under that name, not to mention his countless mixes, remixes, mix albums, collaborations, and solo releases during that time."

Ekhidna is the latest from Norwegian guitar phenom Hedvig Mollestad. This one is a solo outing having preferred to drop 'Trio' from the artist name. What to expect? Well, suppose Jimmy Page and Tony Iommi were mashed together and sent off to jazz school and  you have something of an idea of Hedvig's playing, but that's not really the whole of it. Expect avant-garde soundscapes with heavy grooves in a free-form atmosphere. I just discovered her and quickly grabbed all her music. Simply phenomenal!

The Pretenders, Hate For Sale was released on July 17, 2020.

 

"Chrissie Hynde brings back some old bandmates for a brisk record that acknowledges The Pretenders are best when they’re direct and unadorned."

For me, this is the best Pretenders album in a long time. Ms. Hynde is singing with passion again, and the album isn't over produced. I like it!

Ruben Rubio, inexorable was released on June 15, 2020.

 

"′ Chrono ′′ is the first single from Inexorable, the second album by bassist Ruben Rubio, where the frantic rhythm of our lives is revealed. Time is inexorable and, we can't get it back once it's gone, but no one seems to realize how important it is until it's over. Don't waste a single second and enjoy every moment."

 

The review was taken from Ruben Rubio's facebook page.

Bluey, Tinted Sky was released on June 12, 2020.

 

Jean-Paul “Bluey” Maunick is the founder, producer, and lead songwriter of Incognito.

 

"British soul collective Incognito was at the forefront of the acid-jazz movement during the 1980s and early ‘90s. Originally focused on instrumental grooves fusing soul, jazz, and disco, the offshoot of Light of the World found long-deserved commercial success throughout the ‘90s with vocally charged numbers featuring the likes of Jocelyn Brown, Maysa, and Carleen Anderson—to name a few."

Throttle Elevator Music, Emergency Exit was released on June 26, 2020.

 

"The tracks on Emergency Exit are typically short for this collective; most TEM compositions are under five-minutes. The overlooked pieces that make up the album represent the best overall collection from the group. "Sublime in the Base," a play on the title "Bass in the Sublime" from TEM's debut, is a distinctive combination of groove and majestic horns. Similarly, "Third Reflection" drops some reggae flavor into the dream-like atmosphere created by Washington's long, languorous tenor lines. More mixing of styles emerges on "Jagged Reform," where the interplay between Hughes' pounding rock rhythm and driving hard bop creates something different. "Another Moth Drawn To City Light" is an exquisite piece that features Washington and Erik Jekabson on flugelhorn, and Mike Blankenship on Farfisa organ. It contrasts nicely with the lashing rock number "Rattle Thicket."

John Fusco and the X-Road Riders, John the Revelator was released on July 31, 2020.

 

"More than three decades after a teenage Fusco ran away from his New England home to Louisiana and the Mississippi Delta — returning with a semi-autobiographical screenplay called Crossroads (and an unlikely discovery as a Hollywood screenwriter) — the writer-musician returned to his old southern stomping grounds. He was back in the Delta to film his Netflix hit The Highwaymen, but a series of impromptu jam sessions with Cody Dickinson, whose father Jim had been a music advisor on Crossroads, turned into an album of Fusco’s original blues."

John Scofield, Swallow Tales was released on June 20, 2020.

 

"On Swallow Tales, guitar giant John Scofield returns to the trio format, interpreting nine beautiful ‘songs’ from longtime bassist friend Steve Swallow, who pairs up here with drummer Bill Stewart to ensure a consistently swinging rhythmic foundation. Knowing one another very well, the old dynamics still pack a punch in what is Scofield’s first record as a leader on the ECM label."
