Nuovo lavoro per il flautista di Pordenone (incisione del 2012), in trio con due fedelissimi quali Cesselli e Turchet, e nuovo centro. Persino prevedibile, verrebbe da dire (ovviamente nel senso migliore del termine), perché da Massimo De Mattia, ormai da molti anni figura nodale sulla mappa del jazz nostrano (magari non tutti se ne sono accorti, ma pazienza…), non ci aspettiamo mai di meno. Il disco, breve (39'), si sviluppa attraverso sedici brani di ammirevole concisione (a parte il primo "Trilemma," nessuno raggiunge i quattro minuti, e sette rimangono addirittura sotto i due) in cui i tre musicisti scovano abbinamenti strumentali variegati, senza che nulla venga mai dato per scontato (il che è ovviamente pregio non da poco). Dopo il citato "Trilemma" d'avvio, episodio scuro, quasi spettrale, una sorta di memento, a firma di Cesselli, si alternano guizzi e segmenti in cui tutto sembra invece stemperarsi.

Genre: Smooth Jazz, Jazz-Funk

The first collaboration between guitarist Cory Wong and alto saxophonist Dave Koz, 2021's ebullient and funky Golden Hour maximizes the best aspects of each performer. An established crossover jazz star, Koz has a style that brings together pop lyricism with a rhythmically infectious brand of R&B. Wong, a prolific artist in his own right, has worked on a variety of genre-bending projects, including albums with funk collective Vulfpeck and keyboardist Jon Batiste, with whom he recorded the Grammy-nominated 2020 new age album Meditations. Produced by Wong, Golden Hour finds the duo bringing all of their previous experience to bear on a set of original, primarily instrumental songs. Backed by a full rhythm section and horns, Koz and Wong's music evokes a classic, late-'70s and early-'80s soul vibe, but with a sleek, contemporary energy.

The Commodores made one final stab at regaining R&B glory when Lionel Richie and producer/arranger James Anthony Carmichael both left in the mid-'80s. J.D. Nicholas became their lead singer, and Dennis Lambert assumed production duties. They rebounded temporarily, when "Nightshift" leaped out of an otherwise ordinary album to become a Grammy-winning R&B and pop smash. It stayed atop the R&B charts for a month, and peaked at #3 on the pop chart. Unfortunately, it was also the end for Thomas McClary, who left the group once the album had run its course. It was their next-to-last hit, and basically the end for the band, although they continued for a couple more years.

Legendary jazz greats Branford Marsalis and Kurt Elling collaborate for the first time on a full album, Upward Spiral. They ve been talking for a while about making a record together, and finally at the end of 2015 it all came together. They found time to play the new material in the New Orleans Snug Harbor club for four days and then recorded a variety of songs in the studio, all chosen because of their melodic richness and musical quality. Their versions of the chosen material are simply incredible, as the musicality of Branford and Kurt and their deep understanding of these songs shows through immediately.

Le point de départ, c'est une commande de l'Opéra de Rouen Normandie : une œuvre pour un orchestre symphonique et le big band Tous Dehors, avec pour projet d'illustrer les différentes étapes de la vie, de la conception jusqu'à l'ultime souffle. Passé le stade de la création, il n'a pas été possible de rejouer la partition sur scène ni de faire un enregistrement avec l'effectif originel (une cinquantaine de musiciens). Laurent Dehors s'est donc remis à la tâche pour une version en effectif réduit : neuf musiciens, plus les deux solistes invités (Marc Ducret et Matthew Bourne) qui dialoguent avec l'orchestre. Le résultat est plus que convaincant de vitalité, de vivacité et de pertinence.
