Still thriving and evolving 25 years after its founding, the visionary quartet Sexmob continues to explode all preconceived notions of what an instrumental jazz band can be. Emerging from the Knitting Factory scene of the mid-’90s, slide trumpeter Steven Bernstein, alto/baritone saxophonist Briggan Krauss, upright/electric bassist Tony Scherr and drummer Kenny Wollesen have changed the game with their raw, improvisatory groove and swing, endlessly inventive arrangements and uproarious sense of fun, exhibiting high musical standards. From their 1998 debut, they’ve formed one of the truly enduring and substantive artistic bonds of their time, a quartet chemistry (often plus guests) that retains every bit of its freshness and capacity for surprise. Bernstein and crew evince a modernizing impulse but also an equally strong foundation in the roots of jazz and American song. Sexmob continues to chart new paths in 21st-century creative music.

Considered one of the most talented and sui generis bass players of his generation, after a seven-year hiatus without recording any album under his own name, Hugo Carvalhais, one of the best kept secrets of portuguese jazz, presents a new work. Ascetica (2022, Clean Feed Records) is a dive into ourselves and into the depths of consciousness. It is in this unfathomable place that, since the dawn of time, we have been confronted with mystery, beauty, fear, wonder, light and darkness. Hugo Carvalhais outlines a lively music, with a breath of its own, marked by the vagueness and ambiguity of his so distinct and personal sound cartography. Because it is not clearly defined, this music is solid and ethereal, timeless and contemporary, dreamlike and awake, based both on the one who makes it and the one who listens to it, questioning the past and the future alike. Music that places the human being at the center of art and art in the definition of both what is its time and what is timeless.
