The infectiously grooving 'Blue' introduces pianist Joey Alexander's new album this autumn. Entitled Continuance which is remarkably the twentysomething pianist/composer's 7th album, here there's tender mellow trumpet lines from Theo Croker and bubbling bass from Kris Funn with John Davis keeping a firm tilt on drums as Alexander's hooky licks and melodic twists & turns complete the recipe. The album contains 5 new Alexander originals plus the band's take on Bonnie Raitt number 'I Can't Make You Love Me' and the venerable hymn 'Great Is Thy Faithfulness'. US jazz indie Mack Avenue are releasing Continuance on 3 November.

We return today to another fine track drawn from The Betrayal by the Enemy trio - Kit Downes, Petter Eldh, James Maddren - the trio switching to the avant-garde Finnish label WeJazz for their latest album following on from Vermillion last year. The choppy and busy - ultimately quite romantic sounding - 'Neglecting Number One' from the album to be issued on 22 September is the second pre-release track after mention of the ruggedly compelling 'Hollywood Bypass' in these pages. The Betrayal features original material by Downes and Eldh and was recorded in a Berlin studio last year. Enemy are back in the UK with dates at Cafe Oto in London on 25 October and Eastside, Birmingham next night. Kit Downes, top, in the photo
