SLIDER WITH ROSIE This looks worth your time, an extract from an original sounding EP by trombonist Rosie Turton called Rosie’s 5ive from the Jazz Re:freshed label. Tracks are Stolen Ribs, The Unknown, The Purge, the Herbie Hancock tune Butterfly covered in recent years by the likes of Robert Glasper, and Orange Moon. The band personnel is not listed but I think joining Turton are Johanna Burnheart – violin; Maria Chiara Argiro – piano; Twm Dylan – bass; and Pete Hill – drums. A sprawling laidback dark modal vibe, Turton takes up the mantle of Annie Whitehead a little although there is no South African side to her direction at all on this glimpse anyway but I am also hearing probably more to the point a bit of the bluesy sound of Frank Lacy as per his work with McCoy Tyner on an album like Journey or with the Mingus Big Band. Burnheart reminds me of someone like Nigel Kennedy feeding feverishly into the sound on top of the rhythm section. A 14 January 2019 release date is advertised. Turton plays Kings Place on 27 April in one of her biggest shows to date. SG
