The outpouring on this year’s 3-disc collection of new creative music from Norway is proof that the adventure continues. Collectively among these 43 tracks, I hear another indication that another generation of music-making talent is always waiting in the wings, ready for their moment onstage.

Meanwhile, the old guard kept right on pushing, as master musicians in their seventies and eighties - from saxophonists Wayne Shorter, Charles Lloyd and Peter Brötzmann to drummer Andrew Cyrille - turned in outstanding, challenging work

But J Jazz avoids the clangers and is composed entirely of the good stuff. Compiled by British collectors Tony Higgins and Mike Peden, the album spans cosmic jazz, abstraction and on-fire dancefloor fusion by artists whose names are generally only known to niche listeners.

Pianist Kenny Barron celebrates his 75th birthday and the 50th year of his recording career with a new album. Concentric Circles, also his Blue Note Records debut, sees him return to an updated quintet setting with a set comprising eight original compositions plus new interpretations of songs by Caetano Veloso, Thelonious Monk, and Lenny White. The Return is the debut album of London-based jazz-fusion artist Kamaal Williams, also known as Henry Wu. It sees him playing as part of a band of a group including bassist Peter Martin and drummer MckNasty. The album’s ten tracks are described as mining the influence of visionary jazz, while featuring all kinds of texture, sounds, and signals from the over-saturated London streets.
