Schumann’s G minor Piano Trio belongs to a group of three chamber works composed in rapid succession in the autumn of 1851, at a time when the composer’s relations with the Düsseldorf municipal orchestra, of which he had been director since 1849, had begun to sour. The Trio followed hard on the heels of Schumann’s First Violin Sonata in A minor; and its opening movement, with its passionately intense main subject and its driving 6/8 rhythm, clearly looks forward to that of the Sonata’s D minor successor which he began barely more than a fortnight later. Clara Schumann was able to play both the Trio and the D minor Sonata during a chamber music evening at their house, on 15 November. The string players on that occasion were Schumann’s violinist friend Joseph von Wasielewski, and the principal cellist of the Düsseldorf orchestra, Christian Reimers.

Country music mega-star Kenny Chesney returns with his highly anticipated new album, ‘Cosmic Hallelujah’. The album magnifies the euphoria and rush that defines Chesney as an artist, a writer and a live performer. Beyond the strong emphasis on rhythm and grooves, the four-consecutive ACM and four-time CMA ‘Entertainer of the Year’ worked to craft an album that marks the best part of being alive and the way to embrace the moment and appreciate the smallest things that often get lost in life as it hurtles by.

Wonderland plays the full breadth of the duo’s wide open aesthetic, taking their Testpressing series of dancefloor lashes - issued on 12” between 2013-2015 - as the diving board for an innovative, reverie-like album forming a parallel dancefloor narrative where the spirits of mid ‘90s jungle and digital dancehall are made plasmic, malleable, and syncretised with industrial and ambient techno sound design.

He was Nigerian guitar God, famous for his incendiary lead breaks with Aktion and Monomono. She was one of Nigeria’s first female band leader who went off to the US and became a big deal in the New Jazz scene there. It should be no surprise then that when Jimi Lee and Monah Finnih got together in 1980 for A Stroll In The Moonlight, an Afro Jazz cosmic funk masterpiece was born. Intricately arranged, beautifully produced and showcasing musicianship of the highest order, A Stroll In The Moonlight was a notch above anything else that was coming out of Nigeria at the time. “I Love Myself” is the perfect amalgam of a tight, horn-driven Lagos groove and an American New Jazz sheen. “People of the World” is pure Afro Funk, brightened by Jimi Lee’s sunny, twangy guitar. “Son of A Man” brings reggae to the table and “Iya Alakara” is a Lijadu Sisters style cosmic paean to beefcakes and plantains. Taking a stroll with Nigerian music’s oddest couple is a slinky, funky affair that comes highly recommended, but be warned: You’ll work up a sweat.

Among jazz fans, you can have a lot of fun arguing whether “European Jazz” is a useful counterpoint to the American tradition, an original supplement thereto or “is worth less than American jazz on the market” as it can be read in a Wikipedia forum. There is no doubt that there have been and are gifted musicians this side of the Atlantic, who have molded and formed jazz for decades. They have developed very unique playing styles by merging European music traditions with American influences. To give these pioneers of European jazz a stage was the idea for the series of articles “European Jazz Legends”, which we launched in the magazine Jazz thing in our 100th issue in September 2013. We can now look back on 11 issues.

“Revelator” means “one that reveals” and that’s certainly true in the case of the debut album from this band of misfit toys. Formed in Long Beach, California in early 2014, Veronica Grim & The Heavy Hearts knew early on the stories they were telling weren't for everyone: their’s is a tapestry of truths that burn like whiskey and haunt like ghosts - but for every painful memory on the album, there is also raucous celebration of love, brotherhood, romance and mischief. At the end of the day, knowing the party has to end someday makes each kiss deeper, each shot more intoxicating and each chord ring with more truth.

15th anniversary reissue. Packaged in a tri-fold digipack, includes a bonus CD compiling live recordings previously issued on Slush Fund (2001) and Syd's Pink Wiring System (2003). 2001’s Getaway may be the best illustration of whatever mercurial, inexplicable musical power animates The Clean. After the band’s initial rush of activity between 1978 and 1982, the trio lay dormant until the end of the ’80s, when a string of reunion shows inspired the Kilgours and Scott to start recording again. After three well-received albums in the first half of the nineties 1990’s Vehicle, 1994’s Modern Rock, and 1996’s Unknown Country The Clean disappeared again until the end of the decade, when another tour inspired another record. While playing gigs across New Zealand in celebration of their original label Flying Nun, David says they brought along a TEAC 4-track quarter-inch tape machine. “As usual, we started jamming and recording, and before you know, we thought we may be onto an LP.” Speed and spontaneity ended up defining Getaway.

Let me turn you on to The Sweet (or Sweet as they’re more commonly known), the 70’s, four-piece band from England. You might know lead vocalist Brian Connolly, bassist Steve Priest, guitarist Andy Scott, and drummer Mick Tucker by their classic hits, “The Ballroom Blitz,” “Fox On the Run” “Little Willy,” and my all-time favorite Sweet tune (and one of my all-time favorite tunes overall), “Love Is Like Oxygen.” But there is so much more to this band who sold 55 million records worldwide, had 34 #1 hits, and are still touring today (although not with that original line-up). A lot of Sweet’s wonderful music is collected on the new From the Archives album.

Chet Baker Quartet Vol.1 (Barclay 84009) was the first album recorded by Baker in Europe. Before that 1955 tour, he had never been to the Old Continent. Traveling with him was pianist Dick Twardzik, a highly talented player who had been praised by the likes of fellow pianist Russ Freeman (who encouraged him to record his only session as a leader) and Charlie Parker (who called Twardzik to back him during several Boston engagements). Twardzik would die in Paris at the age of 24 due to a heroin overdose a few days after recording the two sessions included on the present album. Further sessions recorded by Baker in Paris for Barclay and originally included on Chet Baker and His Quintet (Barclay BLP-84042) and on the Blue Star EP-74020 have been added here as a bonus.

Discovered by music promoter Paul Kyser at a talent show in Baltimore in the early 1970’s, five young men from Baltimore inspired by the Jackson 5 and calling themselves Jimmy Briscoe & the Little Beavers made quite an impression with the public; which led to a number of singles released on Atlantic Records beginning in 1971, and then for the Buddah Records subsidiary Pi Kappa. A full length album followed entitled “My Ebony Princess” which was reviewed as a "top album pick" by Billboard magazine in 1974.

With their fourth album Friends, White Lies haven't so much abandoned their trademark synth-rock sound as given it a spring clean by exploring new sounds. For many reasons, it felt like a fresh start. The trio were temporarily without a label after a bout of record company reorganization. Rather than re-sign straight away, they decided to start Friends under their own steam without the pressure of a deadline or a budget, or even the guidance of a producer. Friends was recorded in Bryan Ferry's private studio in London's Olympia and was self-produced by the band. White Lies enlisted the help of an expert team including Grammy Award-winning engineer James Brown (Foo Fighters, Arctic Monkeys), David Wrench (Caribou, FKA twigs) on mixing duties and long-term collaborator Ed Buller who contributed additional production.
