From Italian pianist and composer Maria Chiara Argirò – a world full of a marine inspired folk and jazz impressionism conveyed by acoustic and electronic textures and inspired by Edward MacDowell’s Sea Pieces.

Strikingly fresh and appealing the material leaps off the page – French singer Leïla Martial matching the mood with a certain delicacy and clarity.

Also on the album are Sam Rapley on tenor saxophone and clarinet, Tal Janes playing guitar and utilising effects), Andrea Di Biase on double bass and Gaspar Sena on drums.

No better time to paddle a little.

The photographer Terry O’Neill, synonymous with the swinging sixties, has died aged 81. He had been ill for some time.

Back in 2012 he took part in a pilot for the filming of a TV programme Jazz@Metropolis and recalled his jazz heroes Zoot Sims, Ben Webster and the photography of Herman Leonard.

Photography, O’Neill said simply is “about improvisation,” just like jazz.

Taking part in a question and answer session hosted by the programme’s presenter, rock writer Neil McCormick, O’Neill had an exhibition called 'Infamous' around the time at the Alon Zakaim Fine Art Gallery on Dover Street.

He also said that he wasn’t interested in any of the jazz around today as his heroes like Sims and the great Ben Webster were from the past, although he clearly warmed to the idea of Alexander Stewart, as the 24-year-old northerner is steeped in the cool crooners of yesteryear, who sang on that occasion.

O’Neill’s photos of Sinatra including the classic Miami Beach boardwalk shot still have a resonance after all these years.
