The Anti label, who last year released Alfa Mist's very moving Bring Backs, has an equally agenda-setting Moor Mother album out by the sound of it next month. Lead-off track 'Woody Shaw' featuring Melanie Charles simmers appealingly. More on the album next month. Collaborators on Jazz Codes include Irreversible Entanglements and the great Jason Moran.

Track of the day is by Elias Stemeseder (b.1990, Salzburg) an Austrian pianist known for his long-time work with Jim Black and collaborations with John Zorn. The avant-garde 'Anthropcene' is drawn from Piano Solo released earlier in the spring. If you liked Alexander Hawkins' Song Singular you may well appreciate the weightiness of Stemeseder going solely on this track. Since 2008 Elias has been working extensively with the much adored American free-jazz drummer Jim Black. We liked 2016's The Constant that he's on with Black and Thomas Morgan. This is even more up our street. An artist whose career is certainly worth following. Elias Stemeseder image: Saudades site
