David Chesky’s series of 18 modern virtuoso solo piano rags are inspired by life in the bustling and intense metropolis of New York City, a place he has called home since 1974. The work seems to owe as much to Henry Cowell and Charles Ives’ use of dissonance, Elliott Carter’s atonalism, Conlon Nancarrow’s experimental piano rolls, Leonard Bernstein’s syncopation, and Cecil Taylor’s whirlwind free jazz as they do to Joplin’s ragtime classics. These pieces are taken from Chesky’s unique rhythmic and harmonic style of composition, fused together with stride piano and ragtime to capture the everyday life of modern pulsating New York City. This album was recorded in Binaural+ for both speaker and 3D headphone playback and has EXTREME dynamics, so please set your playback levels carefully.

David Chesky’s Rap Symphony is about a transitional society, a society that is shifting from the word to the image. Our civilization once used to believe in depth and reading and art; now abstract thought is changing into a simplistic, superficial society where one is consumed with the quick Starbucks or Twitter fix. It’s all lightness of being today. We don’t celebrate anticipation anymore, people don’t want to put the time in. This symphony is about the collapse of that whole ethos.

The phrase in the lyrics that says ‘kill the philharmonic’ doesn’t mean that literally. It’s a metaphor for a society that has no use for the philharmonic. We’re losing these things. Pretty soon John Coltrane and Miles Davis, along with all jazz and classic music, will become museum pieces. We used to have a culture that cherished these, but in a super simplistic society, there’s just no room for them.

With Jazz In The New Harmonic David Chesky fuses 21st century classical harmonies with his city’s rhythms to create a new genre of jazz. Jazz In The New Harmonic liberates the pulse, soul, energy, and groove from past traditions, it’s the first encounter with the transcendental music of our age. Chesky is a first class provocateur, and his 21st century classical harmonic approach kicks into high gear with his streamlined New York groove machine. Chesky’s vision has been realized with this super band of all star jazz musicians.

London bassist and composer Misha Mullov-Abbado burst onto the scene in 2015 with a debut that prompted a stream of plaudits. As the son of late great Italian conductor Claudio Abbado and Russian violinist Viktoria Mullova, there was great anticipation for the album, which not only exceeded expectations but demonstrated that Mullov-Abbado is an accomplished instrumentalist and composer in his own right. His sophomore recording Cross-Platform Interchange not only confirms his promise as an artist of real depth and vision, but demonstrates his intention to do things his own way. Playing on his love of trains as well as the reciprocity and stylistic openness within his music, the title perfectly symbolizes the interconnectivity of inspiration in his life and art.

FLAC (tracks) 24 bit/44,1 kHz  | Time – 33:22 minutes | 397 MB | Genre: Jazz

Tasteful, subtle and inscrutable, Belgium’s Melanie De Biasio and the band have made one of the few modern vocal jazz records. The singer, who also plays flute on the album, which she studied at the Conservatoire Royal De Bruxelles – was born in Charleroi, Belgium, to an Italian family originally from Venice and grew up listening to Maria Callas, David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Jeff Buckley and Rage Against The Machine. But you wouldn’t necessarily infer such diverse influences from No Deal. It’s a record that she produced herself and is steeped in the language of blues and jazz. “No Deal” is a dark, transcendent songs that seem to suspend time.

Among the buzzing cyber hive and unrelenting pace of modern life, there is a special place for albums that suspend time. Melanie de Biasio’s first album in six years is seven songs of dark, transcendent music. Although deeply entrenched in jazz (she is a classically trained flautist and singer), No Deal’s atmosphere lurks in the same place as This Mortal Coil’s Lynchian glow, Portishead’s sinister authority and Mark Hollis of Talk Talk’s smoky self-titled solo album. Revered by many in her native country as the Belgian Billie Holiday, she defies this comparison to iconic jazz singers on her cover of Nina Simone’s I’m Gonna Leave You – a track Biasio reimagines brilliantly with the neat, clipped enunciation of her bruised yet burly vocals. As the final patters of the album’s send-off, With All My Love, dissolve into the ether, the eerie silence that’s left is dizzying.

Mel Tormé had recorded relatively few rewarding albums in the decade before this set, originally put out by Gryphon before being reissued on CD by DCC Jazz. However, his voice had improved with time, his range had widened, and he had become an even stronger jazz singer than before. Since Tormé is joined here by the largely anonymous Chris Gunning Orchestra, with guest altoist Phil Woods, on a set of generally “contemporary” pop songs (including “All in Love Is Fair,” “New York State of Mind,” “Send in the Clowns” and “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face”), this set is not too essential. However, Tormé’s professionalism and ability to swing makes this an interesting outing anyway, and launched his “comeback”.

4.5 Stars – Very Good Plus – “..Torme has outdone himself…His voice is warm, rich, and pure, a mature vocal instrument. His perceptive phrasing is sheer delight…This is truly jazz singing..” – Down Beat

Though the nominal concept for Mel Tormé’s Swings Shubert Alley is Broadway standards, this last moment of pure Tormé brilliance moves much too fast and hard for the concept to be anything but pure swing. Of course it starts out with a bang with the punchy “Too Close for Comfort.” Tormé sounds like he’s racing the band to the finish of the song on this one (and a few others, like “Too Darn Hot” and “Surrey with the Fringe on Top”), on the latter he repeats the title over and over again with that exuberant voice. As with his other classic swing albums, Tormé does insert a few slower songs; here, “Once in Love with Amy,” “A Sleepin’ Bee” and “Old Devil Moon” are downtempo, with a smile. The overall mood, however, is unrestrained enthusiasm, and it makes for an excellent record. –AllMusic Review by John Bush
