Top 5 Jazz Songs – August 2016


#5 – David Helbock Trio “The Soul”

Here is a beautiful piece, captivating and exciting as can be a great thriller, by an Austrian pianist newly signed on Act.

#4 – Mugwisa International Xylophone Group “Jinja Pearls”

A wonderful musical AND human project gives us to discover a mix archaic/modern for an immobile trance: you only have to close your eyes and let the sound enter your brain.

#3 – Derrick Hodge “Underground Rhapsody”

Mister I-know-how-to-do-everything (producer, composer and multi-instrumentalist) is also Mister I-do-it-better-than-anyone-else, because it’s really good what he does – evidence for this with the track Underground Rhapsody

#2 – Mary Halvorson & Noël Akchoté “Flowers – For Mary”

It sparkles, it tickles, it’s fun and cool, while being extremely relaxing – a duet piece that makes you want to buy flowers

#1 – Bly de Blyant “Forty”

A little crazy as the cover and the title of his 3rd album (his old covers; “The Third Bly de Blyant Album”) Forty is the tip of the forest avant-garde Jazz – if it ever existed?
