As we’re now nearly 30 days into the start of 2013, we thought there would be no better time to launch a new feature on the website where we dig a little deeper into the new jazz releases making the rounds each month. As we put together our annual 2012 Jazz Retrospective mixtapes, we realised just how much great new music is still being released across the jazz spectrum but often, except for the odd review here or there, we tend to only mention it in passing over on our Facebook page. Below is our initial attempt at rectifying this situation, as we present the first in what we’ve affectionately dubbed ‘The Record Pool’. This month, we pick three releases – two previously unreleased reissues and a Blue Note Records début – that are more than worthy of a portion of your January pay packet! Let us know what you think… ———-
Just over a month to go… Stick Feb 28th in your diary. ‘Black Radio’ is coming!
