Now signed to Uwe Hager's O-Tone Music there's magic in the air. Drawn from Sly out in three weeks' time from the cult advanced piano trio Reis Demuth Wiltgen moving into their prime. Hail the mind blowing perfection of 'Diary of an Unfettered Mind'. The cult Luxembourg trio draw on originals and turn to connoisseur Italian indie-jazz label Cam Jazz known especially for their late-period Kenny Wheeler releases for their outlet to the world. The title runs wild on an elixir of e.s.t. and tunnels deep through the new melodic into their own euphoric state and awesome sense of wonder. SG

I was beginning to think that Trying Times would never see the light of day. Thankfully it has, slipped out with very little fanfare. Produced by Kenny Garrett pianist Benito Gonzalez Deelee has an outstandingly real classic jazz voice, a rarity these days and also a throwback to the golden age, that's why we beat a path to hear her play.

A very starry cast of top US players including the quondam Diana Krall guitarist Russell Malone, Gonzalez and a horn section who include the Abdullah Ibrahim Ekaya player trombonist Andrae Murchison join the singer. Yet all recede as the singer seizes the day to formidable effect.

Deelee made her name winning the prestigious Sassy prize but it's been difficult since to continue that momentum .

Connoisseurs beat a path, it's the sort of record we'll all be returning to again and again. A very understated singer fundamentally yet who has power and interpretative resource bubbling up and so much to share that's her gift and this is a new dawn. SG

Out now.
