The penultimate track 'Mashup' from Another Land by bassist Dave Holland who simply burns in the company of funky comping initially from guitarist Kevin Eubanks and drummer Obed Calvaire who goes straighatead behind Eubanks' exploratory soloing later in the track (even later there are shards of blues smeared jazz-rock and the emergence of an infectious bass riff) is streaming. The album, Dave indicated in an interview with marlbank in 2019 that the record at that stage was heading to come out last year, opens with 'Grave Walker' while other tracks of the originals-strewn album, to be released by Edition on 28 May following a new deal that the bass don struck with the jazz-indie, are the title track, 'Gentle Warrior,' '20 20,' 'Quiet Fire' and 'Passing Time.' Looks like it's worth the wait. Photo: Edition

French film director Bertrand Tavernier has died at the age of 79. One of his films Round Midnight (1986) (in French: Autour de Minuit) is one of the greatest depictions ever of jazz in a movie. Not only did it star Dexter Gordon in an acting role, it won Herbie Hancock, who is also seen in the action, an Oscar for best score and managed the feat of expressing the feel of jazz, Paris, a lost era, partly through the lens of passionate and caring fan Francis Paudras and fictionalised versions drawn together of often harrowing aspects of Bud Powell and Lester Young's lives that chime and speak volumes.
