My favorite things pt. 1: Leo Records
Leo Records puts out an amazingly diverse group of recordings, and has done so for an astonishing 37 years now. I always see names that are new to me, even though I follow the music closely. Not everything is to my taste, but I’m indebted to the label for their Anthony Braxton recordings alone. Leo Feigin, the founder, also has great taste in pianists: Simon Nabatov, Achim Kaufmann, and more recently, Uwe Oberg. Here are some recently releases that I’ve really enjoyed:
Simon Nabatov / Mark Dresser / Dominik Mahnig - Equal Poise
Sarah Bernstein Quartet (with Kris Davis) - Still/free
