Lisa Ullén Heirloom

Lisa Ullén – Heirloom

Heirloom is a solo recording by pianist Lisa Ullén. It was captured during two sessions—with an audience—on June 6 and 8, 2023, at Fylkingen in Stockholm, Sweden. The two concerts were identical, each exploring two variations of the same three-part suite: “Heirloom,” “Fragrance,” and “After Sun.”

Jazz January 2024

What should you expect from jazz this month? Welcome to our January 2024 selection of albums that have already been released or will soon be released this month (“What to Wait For”). These albums got our full attention and are worth your time. They are listed in order of release date.

Note: you are very welcome to add/submit any new release to this Google Sheet. Read more about the project here.

2024 New Jazz Music Releases

2024 New Jazz Music Releases

What about trying to list all the 2024 new jazz music releases?

If we all participate in building it, we may be able to list 6,000 releases as Tom Hull was guessing a few years back. Maybe even more. Maybe list releases from artists that are off the radar. Maybe list releases from countries we are not familiar with.

All The New Jazz Music Releases

To achieve this, we need a collaborative document, such as this Google Spreadsheet.

So, if you would like, you are very welcome to add to the spreadsheet any jazz music releases (full-length albums, recorded no later than 2014), in the simple form:

  • Date (MM-DD), Artist, Title, and Label (plus a link to the release if you can).

You could be the artist, the artist’s relatives, the promoter, or the music fan.

The spreadsheet is open for everyone to edit and share. And you are indeed very welcome to both edit and share it.

We can hope that by the end of 2024, we will have gathered an incredible amount of jazz releases, helping us discover more music than we would have ever imagined.

Why List All The 2024 New Jazz Music Releases?

Because it feels like all our contributions will help other music fans and artists.

If based in Sweden I can certainly list all the Swedish jazz releases there are, and my friend in Japan will certainly enjoy discovering music otherwise inaccessible to him. In return, I would very much love to get access to and discover new jazz music released in Japan. Same for Brazil, Great Britain, and of course, the USA, state by state even. We could also hope to discover great jazz music from less highlighted countries.

Artists get a chance to put out their music on a list hopefully searched by jazz fans, and link to their release.

We hope you will be thrilled by this project.

Thank you for your participation!
