I took a chance on this relatively recent release on Discus. It's as good as the samples on Bandcamp would suggest. I'm not familiar to any of the musicians on this release. The leader plays the trumpet. A modern version of Bubber Miley with lots of lovely growling and fluttering sounds. Very convincing effort.

Charlotte Keefe----Alive! in the studio ----(Discus)

Keeffe is great, she has another leader date on Discus, released before this one featuring a range of group sizes

Chris Williams & Patrick Shiroishi – Sans Soleil

What's the view here on Patrick Shiroishi?

He's a name that comes up on other corners of the internet (e.g. Twitter and Reddit) frequently as a leading recent saxophonist. But he's never / rarely discussed here.

I don't really hear it, personally.

New name to me, I'll have a listen

Not sure that this is the one with which to start. He has done loads. They seem pretty ordinary to me.

Borasisi (solo) and Resting in the Heart of Green Shade (with a group including Vinny Golia) are maybe the standout ones to which I've listened. Both are good.

Should be a recording of Rubin Kodheli, Mary Halvorson, Trevor Dunn & Brian Chase from this past Sunday night!!

and Ches Smith, Mary & Nick Dunston from 2 weeks ago

plus a trio with Mary, Tomas Fujiwara & Henry Fraser from 2/14

among the numerous shows I’ve seen these might have been the best this month.

all freely improvised magical performances 

Mary is best in these small group improv settings

Latest arrival from Newcastle 

 

John Pope——Citrintas——-(New jazz & improvised music recordings)

 

Not sure what prompted buying this other than hearing some nice sounding clips on Bandcamp.  It’s a soulful quintet ( no piano or guitar) . Grooves nicely and makes a good first impression. Hope that doesn’t sound like feint praise as the music strikes me as accessible but still adventurous. Any one else heard of this group.

Yes, I like it for the same reasons as you.

I tend to buy everything Pope releases, he's an interesting new voice

I really enjoyed that Water Music record that he did with John Garner.
