    This probably won't help you but Chris Potter's new one Ultrahang is really good. Adam Rogers also has a new one out that I dig but it's name escapes me.

    If I don't write names of albums feat. Kurt Rosenwinkel, I'd say, quickly and as it comes to mind, for recent jazz records with guitar players :

    * David Sanchez - Cultural Survival
    * Marcus Strickland - Twi Life
    * Jaleel Shaw - Perspective
    * Ingrid Jensen - At Sea
    And everything feat. Lage Lund (see his discography here : http://www.lage-lund.com/web/discographytx.htm ; you must add this missing album : Lage Lund - Romantic Latino For Ladies)

    * Mike Moreno – Between the Lines
    * Phil Stöckli - Third Eye
    * Marcus Strickland - Open Reel Deck
    * Aaron Parks - Invisible Cinema
    * Jimmy Green - Gifts And Givers
    And everything featuring Mike Moreno (see his discography here : http://www.mikemoreno.com/music.html )

    * Ari Hoenig – Bert's Playground
    (feat. Jonathan Kreisberg & Gilad Hekselman)

    Im really sorry for going a bit off topic here. I second Wayne Krantz (carlock, lefebvre etc). Its wicked. But my favorite record this year, all categories is:

    Alice in Chaings "Black gives way to blue" (<--beutiful title as well!). Elton John plays some piano on the title track dedicated to late Wayne Staley. I was extreamly moved by this record.

    Sorry for going off topic guys,

    Best, Sandemose

  9. Peter Bernstein Trio "Monk". Fantastic!

    Hey, Denjz, Season Of Changes - Brian Blade Fellowship & Mama Rosa - Brian Blade feat. Kurt Rosenwinkel ! I'll put the hand on your others suggestions, as on all suggestions made here.
    DLighto1, I bought Romantic Latino on eBay some time ago. It's an album produced in Japan.
    See here http://www.ejazzlines.com/c103/c1231/LAGE-LUND-ROMANTIC-LATINO-p52220.html
    There are a lot of tracks played on acoustic guitar on this album and it's a good album. It seems to be produced for japanese people and to be an "album de commande" (I don't know how to say in english !). Feat. Aaron Goldberg on Piano, Matt Brewer on Bass & Rodney Green on Drums.

    I don't understand 1 single % of what they're playing, but love the new cd of the belgian band named "Octurn".
    I found this link yesterday
    http://sites.radiofrance.fr/francemusique/_c/php/emission/popupMP3.php?e=19&d=395001647
    it's one of their gig, and i was like 'omg omg omg omg' when listening to it.
    (the site says the gigs are available for 7 days and i don't know how much time it will stay online...)
    i find that music .... just incredible. These guys are reinventing new ways of playing music.

  19. Maciek Grzywacz - Fourth Dimension
    Wayne Krantz - Krantz Carlock Lefebvre

    I really liked the Aaron Park's album "Invisible Cinema."

    The new Robert Glasper disc was also really great, IMO.

    Just bought Lage Lund's record the other day...really cool stuff there too.

  21. Jacam Manricks "Labyrinth" !!!

    A f@$#ing mindblowing album that features Ben Monder.

    I think most have these have been said already but:

    Vijay Iyer Trio - Historicity
    Adam Rogers - Sight (and literally every other record he's ever made as a leader or sideman)
    Brian Blade Fellowship - Season of Changes (Kurt's on this, not sure if it's not allowed?)
    Avishai Cohen Trio - Gently Disturbed (Really sick.)
    Joshua Redman - Compass (only Saxophone double trio album I'M aware of - really nice stuff and Brian Blade kills it.)
    Rudresh Mahanthappa's Indo-Pak Coalition - Apti (with Rez Abbasi on guitar - really cool stuff)
    Eldar - Virtue (this kid is SO rare)
    Ben Monder - Oceana (not recent but ever-so incredible.)
    Branford Marsalis Quartet - Footsteps of Our Fathers (Also not all that recent but UNBELIEVABLE version of a love supreme. Really moving stuff. Joey Calderazzo and Tain Watts tear it up as usual.)

    Thanks for all the other suggestions guys - there's some stuff in these lists I'm really pumped to check out.

    Hey Benny, thanks for recommending Tomasz Stanko's 'Dark Eyes.' I just imported it ... one of his best ... I love it!

    Redbeard, if you like the guitarist Jakob Bro's playing on 'Dark Eyes', check his own albums: http://www.jakobbro.com He always gets amazing musicians to play with him! Frisell/Konitz/Motian/Rosenwinkel/Turner/Cheek etc etc

    I forgot to recommend Jonathan Kreisberg's latest disc, 'Night Songs'.

  26. Redbeard

    Thanks again, Benny! I have Kreisberg's previous CD, but not his latest. I'll look for that and Jakob Bro next. You're probably already aware of him, but Gilad Hekselman is another young guitarist to watch.

    I am going to go a little off topic since someone mentioned Jakob Bro...I always really enjoyed his playing

    Look what I found Kurt & JAkob

    on a side note I want an Eric Harland album...that tune "Treachery" is perpetually stuck in my head.

    Does anyone still have Lund's Romantic Latino? I've looked all over for it and can't find it anywhere (except imported for $40+).
