Heritage spiritual jazz returns centrestage next month with news of the 26 March release of a collaboration between Pharoah Sanders and in a border-crossing twist electronica producer Floating Points and the London Symphony Orchestra together on Promises.

Erstwhile ECM producer Sun Chung has a new label called Red Hook Records, self-described as ''a place for encounters, where musicians have opportunities to interact with creative minds, share insights, explore and carve new adventurous ways of creative wayfaring.'' The first release from the Bantry, County Cork-registered label on 16 April is to be Hanamichi from the Japanese pianist Masabumi Kikuchi (1939-2015). It comprises six solo performances and is the final studio recording by the great musician. Among the label’s other upcoming releases are new projects by trumpeter-composer Wadada Leo Smith, drummer Andrew Cyrille and electronic musician Qasim Naqvi.
