Praised for his music's elusive beauty, and for his style informed by tradition but not encumbered by it, saxophonist and composer Ravi Coltrane takes a bold step in his creative journey with Spirit Fiction, his Blue Note Records debut. The 11-track album features two different band lineups, each with a unique expressive urgency. Several tracks feature Coltrane's long-term quartet with pianist Luis Perdomo, bassist Drew Gress, and drummer E.J. Strickland

NYC five by Angelika Niescier( )

3 editions published in 2016 and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein deutsch-New-Yorker Quintett rund um die deutsch-polnischen Saxofonistin Niescier mit viel experimen-teller Gestaltungslust. "Nach ihrem Ausflug mit den beiden Italienern Simone Zanchini (Akkordeon) und Stefano Senni (Bass) in eine durch Folklore geprägte, europäische Improvisationsmusik zieht es die in Köln lebende Altsaxofonistin Angelika Niescier zurück in ihre "imaginäre" Heimat New York. Zusammen mit ihrem Kölner Longtime-Buddy, Pianist Florian Weber, und den drei New Yorkern Ralph Alessi (Trompete), Chris Tordini (Bass) und Tyshawn Sorey (Drums) kehrt sie mit ‚NYC 5‘ zu einem High-Energy-Modern-Jazz zurück. Dennoch hat sich einiges geändert. Niescier hat sich neue Spieltechniken angeeignet, um ihr Spektrum an Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten zu vergrößern, ihr Timbre und ihre Phrasierung besitzen allen hitzigen Wendungen zum Trotz die abgehangene Gelassenheit des US-Jazz. Mit Weber hat sie einen Pianisten zur Seite, der jeden ihrer harmonischen Schachzüge ad hoc zu antizipieren weiß, mit den Amerikanern drei gestandene Improvisatoren, die die oft im Geschwindigkeitsrausch vorgetragene Exegese ihres Modern Jazz tief in der New Yorker Szene verankern" (Jazzthing 113, 4-6/16)
