Brit-jazz releases this year that have really resonated with us most here include James Kitchman's superb First Quartet, the eloquent new Mark Lockheart record Dreamers, Binker and Moses' latest, a big return to form and the advent of The W. Adding to these is new this week from Emma Rawicz, a hugely promising saxophonist and flautist who marlbank heard for the first time last year at a scintillating show in the Vortex. She plays hugely difficult music, very complex in its design and yet very vibrant and energetic in its execution. Rawicz has fantastic tone and flexibility in her sound, compositionally the style reminiscent of the poetic obliqueness of Wayne Shorter​. Check out 'Mantra' from the new record Incantation, above

Lots of retro flavours this month at the Watermill Jazz venue in Dorking with Andy Panayi and Alan Barnes' Salute to Cannonball & Coltrane, Alan Wakeman with his octet and Brandon Allen paying homage to Stanley Turrentine among the May line-up. Fine saxophonist Allen has a new record on the Ubuntu Music paying tribute to the saxman and said at the time of the release “Some of the original versions were orchestral in nature and so I tried to capture the essence of that large ensemble feeling. With the other tracks I have taken all the main elements of the song but have made some small alterations, textural changes here and there and opened up certain sections for solos.'' Also to appear is Chris Ingham's tribute to Hoagy Carmichael.
