It won’t be long before my October recommendations post on the The Bandcamp Daily, but let’s revisit some of the recordings that made previous recommendations so special.
First up is a live performance video from the Roller Trio. This 2018 gig at The Assembly House in Leeds pretty well sums up their penchant for wildness and unconventional behavior. Their latest, New Devices, is one of the more thrilling albums to his the shelves in 2018. Also, be sure to check back in later this evening. We’ll be featuring one more video that utilizes Roller Trio’s music.
Here’s a link to my album write-up for The Bandcamp Daily. And you can just go give the album a listen, and purchase it, on the artist’s Bandcamp page. It’s also available at Amazon. Video by Ninia Film.
Next up is an old-school video from Dos Santos. It features a song from a prior album, but everything about it, from the sound to the sense of fun, encapsulates everything their latest, Logos, has to offer. Cumbia, salsa, post-bop, surf guitar are just a few of the influences that mark this excellent recording.
And let’s wrap up with a promo video for The Stereography Project by Marike van Dijk. The alto saxophonist’s latest builds upon her remarkable chamber jazz project by composing for vocals. Katell Keineg and Jeff Taylor are spellbinding in those roles, each in their own way. One of my favorite albums of 2018.
