It's not often we dip our toes into swing jazz guitar but certainly hearing Harry Diplock at Ronnie's a few years ago was a welcome return to the idiom for us and it's good to hear Harry has a new album, Harry Diplock Trio and Friends, this autumn from which the pleasurably jaunty Quintet of the Hot Club of France repertory number 'Rose Room' above is drawn. Personnel on the album include Remi Oswald, Pete Thomas, Giacomo Smith, Joe Webb, Kourosh Kanani and Matt Holborn joining the stalwart of the London Django Collective who is originally from Devon. Album release date is 20 October.

Sounding in fine fettle but oh it's been so long since we have come across even a guest spot by legendary UK 1990s hard bop trumpeter Gerard Presencer - Groove Travels some seven years ago with the Danish Radio Big Band must have been the last time. Long exiled from these shores Gerard pops up on Danish saxophonist Andreas Toftemark La Gare (April) in a quartet setting recording in Copenhagen where Toftemark is also joined by bassist Matthias Petri, pianist Calle Brickman and drummer Andreas Svendsen. Mostly originals of the leader's, the title refers to a Paris jazz club. Presencer is on most of the tracks including the lilting 'Waltz For Alex' above. Look for the full album in November.
