Joe goes public turning Japanese

Boom. Bass power and then some on 'Terror' from Seven Japanese Tales by bassist Joe Downard. Talk about impact. A complete unknown, for now, the album is a 7-piece suite inspired by the writer Junichiro Tanizaki.

Marlbank is your free daily jazz source. You come here every day if you really want to be in the know. But you already know that.

If you are a label or happen to be marketing a new product or service why not become a supporter?

We don't run ads. We don't harvest your data, spam you with boring emails or act as a tease for another product. We are impartial and independent and don't just write parroting copy. Jazz isn't soap powder or a tin of baked beans after all. Slogans R Us? Nope.

What we do and will continue to do is keep you in the picture when you need it. In other words, what's new, who's good, what to avoid. The records that are making a difference, the trends, interviews with the top players, a heads up. You won't find what you need in the newspapers because the arts editors in the big titles don't care enough or at all to prioritise jazz, the music all of us here at marlbank, and you dear readers, love. And look at what's going down on air, the radio even on the jazz shows is usually playing records that came out days and weeks ago and you can't be bothered with the DJ ''personality'' chat. Instead you'll get some great tracks unveiled for the first time, as near as real time to their release as possible, playlists, podcasts, links, tips, suggestions, proper analysis and knowledge. Few jazz media outlets, if any, offer a regular daily service even at the weekends. Become a voluntary supporter by donating a few spondoolicks every so often and help us keep providing you with the service you enjoy and above all deserve.

Like marlbank enough to make a difference?
