Read this intro quickly so that you can click on the Youtube clip of Tomasz Stanko performing a section of Suspended Night– you’ll soon see why we like his music. Now go out and buy the CD on ECM records!
Very varied choices this week from an orchestrated McCoy Tyner with a turbocharged Billy Cobham on drums through to Mike Westbrook’s delightful Love Song No.1 and a lovely swinging track from Clifford Brown and Max Roach.

First this week is an unfortunately sharply edited video of Polish trumpeter Tomasz Stanko in concert. It’s a pity that we can’t find a longer version of this performance on Youtube:
As a complete contrast try this version of Afro Blue – poor video quality but the sound is fine. That’s Wayne Shorter on tenor, Ravi Coltrane on soprano and Chick Corea on keyboards along with Carlos Santana (and in the background John McLaughlin and Herbie Hancock).
