CHRISTOS RAFALIDES TRIO – Near and Dear (Emarel Music)

A vibraphonist is not very common among instrumentalists, a vibraphone trio, though remarkable in jazz history, is not commonplace and finally, a Greek vibraphonist’s trio is a rarity if not the first of its kind. From the trio concept of Red Norvo to the 4 mallets of Gary Burton, Rafalides pays tribute to his masters contextually. The content, on the other hand is unique and like the album’s title suggests; near to us and very dear to him.

Henning Bolte, Jazzism (Netherlands)


Patrik Sandberg, OrkesterJournalen (Sweden)

SOUNDSCAPE ORCHESTRA – Nexus (Do Music Records)


Cim Meyer, Jazz Special (Denmark)

JEFF DENSON QUARTET – Concentric Circles (Ridgeway Records)


Paul Hanson (bassoon), Dan Zemelmann (p), Jeff Denson (b, voc, comp), Alan Hall (d). It’s not every day you hear such an equilibristic bassoon player in a jazz context. Rather hard-boiled music in brisk tempos. Unfortunately the sound has been quite compressed in the mastering. Nevertheless compelling music.

Lars Mossefinn, Dag og tid (Norway)

MØSTER! – States of Minds (Hubro)

Axel Stinshoff, Jazz thing (Germany)

WAYNE SHORTER – Emanon (Blue Note)
