Aaron Parks - Invisible Cinema

Got to know this dude from accujazz radio. Everytime you get into the new school channel the only thing you are certain is that he's gonna be played sooner or latter. With plenty of reason.

Apparently it's something like indie meets jazz, and I'm sure it could fall in that description. I find it to be like fresh air in a genre that keeps on re-inventing itself, along the lines of E.S.T. or contemporary noise quintet. Maybe you won't agreed with me, but should try and give this dude a go anyway.
For the comprehensive guide tour on the pianist (kinda) you should pop around here.

Porcupine Tree - Anesthetize [dvd]

The new dvd from PT.

"Anesthetize has been picking up some good reviews. Over on the Blogcritics site, the way in which the camera work takes you deep into the band’s working environment is clearly appreciated. “With many of the shots filmed from behind Harrison's kit, you see everything from the double-bass movements of his feet during "Halo" to the all of those little cymbals and bells he hits during the intricate drum parts on "Anesthetize." Harrison's status as a world-class skinsman is no secret to PT fans of course. But seeing it up close and personal is a revelation.

Likewise, the contributions of keyboardist Richard Barbieri and bassist Colin Edwin come into much sharper focus here. On "Anesthetize," you hear Edwin playing bass parts you never even knew were there before, and the sweep of Barbieri's keyboards during songs like "Dark Matter" and "Sentimental" is so deep it nearly swallows you. On the latter, there is also a very cool shot near the song's end where the keys themselves are reflected in Barbieri's ever-present shades.”"

Laura Marling - I Speak Because I Can

This album was hailed as a folk album worthy of being compared to records written by Joni Mitchell. Which is quite the thing to get all blushed and proud, if you happen to be Laura Marling. I guess. But only because I think Joni Mitchell is one of those singers time will never forget. Getting out of track here.
Anyway, folk album, amazing voice and some really nice songs. If you're into folk.
But don't take my word for it. Check it out for yourself.

pink martini - splendor in the grass

With three successful records under their belt, eclectic lounge-pop act Pink Martini will return October 13 with "Splendor in the Grass" on the band's own label, Heinz Records. Pink Martini's founder and director Thomas Lauderdale tells the album is "all over the map, but hopefully more cohesive than the last one ['Hey Eugene!']." A final track listing is currently being worked on as Lauderdale hopes to get back into the studio and record guest vocals from 90 year old Mexican rancheras singer Chavela Vargas and NPR correspondent Ari Shapiro.
