Latest reviews in brief: Tracks.

Hania Rani, Home, Gondwana Still bewitching in its ingénue minimalism even if not quite as compelling as the breathtaking Esja, the instrumental side of Rani is far more interesting than her vocals side and yet once hooked you'll be a prisoner. (3-star)

Nir Felder, Fire in August, Ropeadope Rock out to the tumbling momentum here. From the prick-your-ears-up to the news of it new trio album by jazz guitar genius Felder. (4-star)

Dinosaur, Absinthe, Edition Laura Jurd's quartet save the day on their patchy new album with this woozy cover of Billy Strayhorn's 'Absinthe.' (3-star)

Angel Bat Dawid, No Space Fo Us, International Anthem Cements her well earned bizarro reputation as the new Sun Ra but you certainly can't ignore Angel Bat Dawid and Ben LaMar Gay on location in Brazil in the company of some new pals. (3-star)

Super cool and very jazz soaked, relatable, græ from US singer Moses Sumney is picking up a lot of interest and understandably so. His voice is utterly startling. From the UK jazz scene, joining a good sprinkling of US jazz musicians topped by Thundercat, Nubya Garcia (on the track 'Virile') and Shabaka Hutchings (on 'Colouour') are among the guests. Check too by scrolling through in a very hip choice, a treatment of 'Gagarin' covering est's 'From Gagarin's Point of View' with joining Sumney, Shahzad Ismaily, Jamire Williams, Mike Haldeman and Brandon Coleman on the track and on which the singer adds an extraordinary vocal performance to his lyrics.
