    From Official Myspace :
    Founded in 2001 in Prague, Czech Republic, Alvik has become a driving force behind the best sounds resonating in Europe today.

    Alvik was built on their performances in Prague'ss smaller jazz clubs before graduating to larger halls, playing across Europe and touring the Czech Republic and the United States . With this growth the group's sound has evolved into its present form with a style which is as easy to listen to as it is hard to define.

    Alvik is the perfection of elements brought by each of its members: front singer and songwriter-singer Anya Stuart, who has helped the band cross into the international scene with her North American roots; Bharata Rajnosek, hornman who cuts between sax, flute and trumpet; Petr Tichy, compelling stand-up bass player, Mishan Pajdiak on drums and samples from Prague and Audun Nedrelid, with his Norweigian fingers gracing the keyboard.

    Together, Alvik breathes a new kind of jazz that transgresses a wide variety of styles and tempos from abstract hip-hop to broken beats to drum and bass and Latin rhythms.

    Over the years Alvik has developed more into a project. Hosting few concerts per year in their native Prague or at European festivals, Alvik thrives on the on-stage convergence of the many guest artists involved in the project. Starting in 2004 with an intense collaboration with the Apollon Quartet and Jazz legend Emil Viklicky, Alvik has continued work with their original bass player Martin Zpevak, and added many other names to the list such as Norwegian hornman Oyvind Svendsen, American vocalist Tonya Graves and Czech pianist/flutist Vitek Pospisil.

    Most recently Alvik has enjoy a cooperation with Slovakian jazz drummer Martin Valihora , who played as a guest on their E.P. Cold June (2007) as well as the greater part of the Forms Apart album (October 2008).

    The collaboration spirit in Alvik continues well into the studio as they have had remixes done by artists from Prince of Tennis to Ishfaq

    04.On Air On Skin
    05.Final Next
    07.Samba In Paris

    Rare and Cheese bring us back to the golden years of hip-hop. "Jazzpolice" comes with beautiful frisky jazzy cuts,
    lo-fi beats, scratches and wise funky stories right from the street. If you dig the early 90s sound of A Tribe Called Quest,
    Lord Finesse, Main Source and Compton's Most Wanted, this album is for you!

    Note :


    The Good and Evil Sessions are the first in Thirsty Ear's Blue Series Continuum, which emphasizes diverse styles of music with a rotating, leaderless cast of musicians. This one melds Danny Blume and Chris Kelly of Good and Evil fame with turntable maven Miso and some of the heavy-hitters from the avant-garde jazz world, including bassist William Parker, pianist Matthew Shipp, and trumpeter Roy Campbell. The results are unpredictable and deliciously sassy, with groove-based throbs, jazz beats, and turntable scratches setting the stage for down-in-the-bucket solos that purr with joyous abandon. Free improv meets punk and dance rhythms laced with foot-tapping, body-swaying pulses. While the pop inflections are certain to spark a debate within the tiny but intense and vocal free jazz community over the commercialization of art, the generally uncompromising improvisations of the Shipp/Parker contingent stand up reasonably well even if somewhat less-intense and complex than usual. This sort of crossover fusion could widen the appeal of these otherwise relatively obscure though extremely talented performers. Shipp is in superb form, spinning webs of simple (though never simplistic) phrases, veiled by supple nuance. Miso's scratches are a constant, subversive presence, while the Blume-Kelly guitar duo keeps the hips shaking and the trombone twosome of Alex Lodico and Josh Roseman adds a raunchy bottom. Roy Campbell's fading repetitions on "On the Run" are lovingly distorted through the filter of the Good and Evil lens.

    Après « Monologue », le guitariste/producteur Yukihiro Atsumi, plus connu sous le nom de Thirdiq, revient avec un nouvel album « Who may find love in the imaginary axis » (dans les bacs depuis le 16 septembre) un opus où se mélange jazz, soul, hip hop avec beaucoup de subtilité…. Retour sur quelques tracks.

    Letters – The them of the film « love in the imaginary axis »
    Quoi de mieux pour conclure un album que de finir sur un morceau tel que celui-ci. « Letters » est une composition de 12 minutes à mi-chemin entre l’interlude et l’improvisation. Page se tourne, stylo écrit, son crépite, voix susurre… Le tout sur un musique douce où se mélange flûte, guitare, bruitages électroniques.

    « To Zion » feat Maru
    Reprendre un morceau considéré comme un classique par beaucoup est souvent un raté. S’attaquer à du Lauryn Hill n’est pas une tâche facile tant la voix de l’artiste est puissante. Mais sur cette reprise de « To Zion », Thirdiq a su trouver une adaptation « jazzy » qui pourrait redonner une seconde vie à ce track. La voix suave de Maru pourrait presque faire oublier la chanteuse des Fugees surtout au début du morceau. En même temps, depuis son Unplugged, l’artiste est un peu passée de l’autre côté…

    « Yellow »
    S’il fallait retenir un morceau, ce serait celui-ci. « Yellow » est un titre catchy très groovy. La combinaison guitare-basse-flûte est plus qu’entraînante. Sur les 50 premières secondes les instruments s’enchaînent avec beaucoup de subtilité s’en se cannibaliser les uns les autres.

    « All The Things of the Univers » feat hanah
    « All The Things of the Univers » transporte. L’association guitare-voix sublime le morceau et Hanah rappellerait presque Amel Larrieux.
