Best track around, heard since the weekend? Nothing anywhere as good as Julian Lage's 'Saint Rose' and the Love Hurts band from upcoming abum Squint (Blue Note). Bluesy, lots of pitch bends, a country/Americana tinge, effective drumming from Dave King of The Bad Plus and Jorge Roeder on bass vital in the infrastructure.

Former child prodigy Lage has become one of the biggest modern-mainstream freebop guitar stars on the US scene in recent years, his appeal even pre-Pandemic fanning out globally. ''Ages'' until this record is out, given that it's to be June, recorded in a Nashville studio last summer guitarist Armand Hirsch and singer-songwriter Margaret Glaspy are co-producers. Album tunes are mainly Lage's.

Ancient jazzerati, Johnny Smith heads and young jazzhead wanabees alike however may well flock to hear the Lage trio take on the classic 'Emily' and on Billy Hill's jaunty 'Call of the Canyon' as first ports of call. The original 'Saint Rose' regardless stands tall.

You might notice a few changes to the look of marlbank this week. Thanks to Ronan and Jason at Sugar Projects for all their hard work, spark and creativity in ushering in the cool new appearance. We're playing the incredible sound of Stanley Turrentine and the cats today in their honour, a classic, title track and opener of the album of the same name, released by CTI in 1971 that takes us back to more recent times and hearing the bluesy swinger played live by Pee Wee Ellis and the late Jimmy Cobb as they hit the sweet spot with Grant Green Jr and Ike Stubblefield at Ronnie Scott's in the summer of 2013 not long after marlbank began, the site having started around St Patrick's day that year. A tune kept for very special occasions that has stayed with us since and sent us digging in the crates as it very might ''wail'' you. Rave on
