The legendary jazz pianist Ahmad Jamal is a recipient of the 2017 Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. The record is a love letter to the iconic French city whose magnificent port and dazzling light have inspired numerous artists and filmmakers over the years.
Although the album starts with the instrumental take of the title track it is the two vocal versions - the first a striking performance of spoken word by French rapper Abd Al Malik, the second a jazz vocal version with Mina Agossi - that immediately command attention, primarily because these kinds of collaboration are a daringly new departure for 87 year-old Jamal.
Backing him are three musicians with whom he has developed an advanced musical empathy over time - drummer Herlin Riley, double bassist James Cammack and percussionist Manolo Badrena. Together they form a rhythm section that is both responsive and assertive, with each member making his presence felt.
Jamal values consistent working relationships with musicians and he also believes in meaningful partnerships with record labels, as his fruitful tenure at Jazz Village proves. ‘Marseille’ is the bejeweled work of a master musician who never says more than he has to but always says enough to make the world sit up and listen.

Adventurous young UK pianist Andrew McCormack, back in the UK after a stint living and playing in New York, presents his new project, "Graviton". The music reveals his love of a broad soundworld, with jazz, rock and electronic textures set against a deeply rhythmic backdrop. ‘Graviton’ features a phenomenal band: Mercury nominees ESKA on vocals and force of nature saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings (The Comet Is Coming, Sons Of Kemet, Shabaka & The Ancestors); bass supremo Robin Mullarkey (Jacob Collier trio, Natalie Williams, Zero7); the simply astonishing Anton Eger (Phronesis, Marius Neset, Morten Schantz). ‘Graviton’ is Andrew’s debut for Jazz Village, following a brace of albums for Edition Records. He also continues his decade-long musical association alongside Kyle Eastwood in the latter’s Quintet.
