    I’m sure they’ll all continue to produce many amazing things. Jazz doesn’t play by pop-band rules, so I don’t necessarily see this as a negative. One road closes, many more open, e.g. one of the two drummers is in The Smile with half of Radiohead, Theon Cross is doing his own thing, and Shabaka Hutchings is a force of nature.

    I've been lucky enough to see them maybe half a dozen times and they're just astonishingly good live - the last two records did a better job of capturing the bands energy but seeing them live in a small sweaty room was incredible. I have a handful of radio broadcasts but it would be great if they released a proper live album.

    Yes, I’d have loved to see them live. I’m just not comfortable enough with covid risks to have gone back to any gigs at all and I’ve missed some great stuff as a result. I’ve seen a lot of great live footage on YouTube though, they never really captured the energy on vinyl IMO (I’ve got all of it).

    Thankfully their last concert - with Nubya Garcia - is at this year's Love Supreme festival. I'll be there, having held-over tickets for the past two years...

    Been listening to Phi-Psonics, on Gondwana, quite a bit in the background this week while I work - maybe not groundbreaking, and does copy a lot from Coltrane's "alabama" on one track, and Lloyd McNeil on most of the others, but its worth some ear-time nonetheless

    Not new in terms of when it was recorded, but new in terms of when it became available, is Noah Howard live in Europe vol 1 - if you like glass bead games or mid 70'S billy harper, this is definitely worth checking out (sorry if that last one was a bit off-topic)

    There's a second volume of Blue Note Reimagined on the horizon. Details a bit sketchy but the BN Store has it available for pre-order including a special 'Paul Smith' edition (whatever that is - they can't be charging £40 just for a different sleeve can they?)

    Just listening to the three available tracks off of Forgiveness - Next Time Could Be Your Last Time, and looking forward to the full release in a couple of days.
    Gondwana don't seem to be putting a foot wrong at the moment.

    eta - it's quite a similar feel to the Floating Worlds Pictures album I posted above

    Vinyl is in the post, looking forward to it.
    I completely agree about Gondwana, another new signing are Svaneborg Kardyb who remind me of Portico Quartet in their spacy / ambient style

    The Forgiveness LP is excellent, especially the second side. Usual superb sound and pressing quality from Gondwana.

    Had not heard of Svaneborg Kardyb, but am listening now to Orbit via Qobuz. Like it a lot. Very much up my street. Thanks for the recommendation VR!

    A signed clear copy via Rough Trade landed earlier, it is really good. A fair bit of Gondwana stuff certainly lies in that area where I’m not sure whether to file it in jazz or with the rock, pop, electronica etc.

    A new Matthew Halsall limited edition EP/ mini album announced today.

    The Temple Within | Matthew Halsall (bandcamp.com)

    While I'm not quite as convinced about the whole Gondwana catalogue as others here I tend to pre-order everything Halsall does and have yet to be disappointed.

    On first listen I'm rather liking the new album from Arve Henriksen & Kjetil Husebo, Sequential Streams.
    Only seems to be available from boomkat at the moment.
