Acclaimed saxophonist, composer and bandleader Trish Clowes leading her My Iris band familiar from such albums as 2019's Ninety Degrees Gravity (Basho) is streaming tonight on International Women's Day from Ronnie Scott's. Clowes' style, oblique, a little reminiscent of Iain Ballamy, plays in a manner that can be prog-like in places and always pushes ahead displaying plenty of firepower and timbral resource complete with a careful command of contemporary jazz language that besides Ballamy also is reminiscent of some of Wayne Shorter’s methodology. Singer Lauren Kinsella and cellist Louise McMonagle also guest tonight. Link to view this evening from approx. 8pm. Trish Clowes, photo via Basho

“As I listen to the music it almost feels like a different time. A time when we weren’t afraid to be close to each other. A time when we could still play in a packed room, with the audience right in front of us, and just feed off their energy. A time that will come back soon enough. And when it does, we’ll be ready to do it all over again,” says Miguel Zenón.

Later this week the great one ushers in his latest album with the release of Law Years: The Music of Ornette Coleman, a live quartet Ornette themed affair recorded at the Bird's Eye club. It seems that the spot is a good place to make a live album given that the recent excellent Metropolis Paradise was also captured in the Basel spot.

Ninety-one years ago this week Ornette was born. So the timing chimes. With the Puerto Rican titan are tenor saxophonist Ariel Bringuez, bassist Demian Cabaud and the Art of the Trio legend drummer Jordi Rossy. Look out for the Catalan on the soon-to-be-released Sam Braysher trio record Dance Little Lady, Dance Little Man. Top tip, no messing.

As for Zenón as recently as January, and still the best thing marlbank has heard all year El Arte Del Bolero, proved an incredible piece of work: bolero classics delivered in an alto saxophone and piano setting from Zenón and pianist Luis Perdomo, thinking as one.

Ahead of Friday's release the Zenón quartet's delicious treatment of 'Dee Dee' (a piece that appeared on the 1965 Blue Note album of the Ornette Coleman trio's At the ''Golden Circle'' Stockholm) is streaming.
