They made our year! Here is a shortlist of 30 albums chosen by Qwest TV's journalists amongst the best releases of 2018.
German pianist-composer Alexander Von Schlippenbach led this mid ‘70s studio session, but the abundance not just of other leaders but innovators – Anthony Braxton, Evan Parker, Peter Broztmann, Albert Mangelsdorff, Kenny Wheeler, to name but some – makes this very much an all-star session.
Leader of Healing Unit, Paul Wacrenier told Qwest TV about the anchor points of the blues and free jazz inspired music of his music. The french ensemble just released Repeat Please!, their third album.
This five-vinyl reissue package including Don Rendell & Ian Carr's Shades Of Blue, Dusk Fire, Phase 111, Live! and Change Is represents a treasure trove, even in today’s crowded marketplace of box sets.
This double-headed reissue is a timely reminder of the place of minimalism in contemporary music.
