Steve Lehman Quintet

released this week on pi recordings: Steve Lehman Quintet - On Meaning

Widely regarded as one of today’s bracingly original young composers, Steve Lehman’s critically acclaimed quintet, combines groove-oriented musical content with highly contrapuntal, asymmetrical, and non-repetitive structural devices. Imagining his music in this way, Lehman creates elaborate formal works that remain rooted in the physicality of live performance and the visceral nature of urban rhythm.

310

released last week: Conduit Records | Artist Releases | 310 - Sixes and Sevens [I notice that Amazon UK are stocking it as an import]

310 (Seattle's Joseph Dierker and New York's Tim Donovan) have been developing their unique blend of hip-hop, art-rock, ethnic percussion, ambient drones, vocal samples, and live instrumentation since 1997. With four albums released on the UK's prestigious Leaf Label, their signature sound has developed beyond it's humble beginnings as tapes sent back and forth across the country as each member layered upon and reworked his partner's music.

310's seventh and latest album, Sixes and Sevens, pushes their vision to sharper and funkier extremes. Combining guitar, violin, keys, and found sound, blended with their hallmark blitz of beats, 310 have orchestrated one of their strongest and deepest albums to date. Highlights include a guest spot by A Tribe Called Quest's Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and tons of funky drumming from notorious session wizard Ralph Rolle.

The Guardian have commenced an ambitious project: Music 1000 albums | Music | Guardian Unlimited Music

Welcome to our special project in which the Guardian's music team - after much debate, some of it bitter - suggest albums that you should listen to before you shuffle off your mortal coil. What it's not is the best 1000 albums of all time. Instead, it's a cross-genre, cross-era look at some great music.

Guardian will providing an A to Z guide to all the albums online as well as print over 5 days. Part 2 will be on Monday.

blog: Guardian Unlimited: Arts blog - music: 1000 albums to hear before you die

From today until Thursday, we are printing five free magazines (available online here) in which the Guardian's music team - after much debate, some of it bitter - suggest 1000 albums that are well worth your hearing.

1000 albums to hear before you die

After much debate, some of it bitter, the Guardian's music team has compiled a list of albums that are well worth your hearing. What did we miss?

Lovespirals

New album: Projekt: Lovespirals - 'Long Way From Home'

Lovespirals truly hits their stride on their 3rd full-length album, Long Way From Home. Melding the dreamy folk and rock of their debut, Windblown Kiss, with the soulful jazz and blues of follow-up, Free & Easy, the duo seamlessly blend prior influences with new sounds and styles. The sensual voice of Anji Bee spins seductive tales of beautiful sadness and spiritual longing set to Ryan Lum's melancholic music. Bluesy electric guitar abounds, with touches of wistful slide guitar, tinkling piano, and haunting harmonica to evoke a lush, organic, Americana feel. The album's first single, a gorgeously moody cover of the anonymous American classic, 'Motherless Child,' is featured on the Podsafe Music Network and is getting play on shows including Daily Source Code and Accident Hash.

Best Norwegian Jazz Albums of All Time

MIC Norway: First issue of a serious canon of Norwegian jazz albums:

MIC’s Norwegian branch Ballade, which is generally regarded the most thorough of Norwegian web-based music media, has developed a canonical list of Norwegian jazz albums. Enrolling more than a dozen of Norway’s most influential and august jazz critics, and having them produce a subjective ranking of the twenty most important albums –which were then computed into a single list - has resulted in a non-definitive but illuminating catalogue, according to Ballade’s editor.

20: Østerdalsmusikk - Østerdalsmusikk (1975)
19: Bleak House - Terje Rypdal (1968)
18: Bikini Tapes – Atomic (2004)

16: Live In Molde - Chick Corea, Trondheim Jazzorkester (2000)
15: Friends - Kapstad-Johansen Quartet (1980)
