David Helbock
Playing John Williams

Pianist David Helbock does the hits with a twist on new LP 'Playing John Williams'. This record finds him - who’d have thought? - playing John Williams, but rather than serving straight-up keyboard arrangements of some of Williams’ classic work we find Helbock putting a jazzy spin on them here. See how, say, Williams’ classic 'Schindler’s List' theme is spun out into something more languid when placed in Helbock’s hands.

Lars Danielsson & Paolo Fresu

Lars Danielsson and Paolo Fresu play it very cool on new album Summerwind. Danielsson plucks and bows his way across cello and bass in accompaniment to Fresu’s succulent trumpet and flugelhorn. And what a calm and expressive pairing it all is, on a rich, crisp recording with plenty of space. Alongside many originals, there are some interpretations of Bach, Fito Páez and others.

Esbjörn Svensson Trio
e.s.t. Live In London

e.s.t. Live in London is set to be released by Act Music -- marking a poignant moment in that it'll be the tenth anniversary of the premature demise of Esbjörn Svensson, on 14th June 2018. The set was recorded live at the Esbjörn Svensson Trio's concert at the Barbican in London on 26th May 2005. The band were the biggest jazz act in the world at the time, captured here at the peak of their powers. They've been influential and have since inspired the likes of GoGo Penguin and countless others. Previous concert recording was named 'Jazz Album Of The Decade' by The Times. On double CD, in a four page digipack with a 16 page booklet including lyrics, or double LP on 180g vinyl with digital download code.
