Anyone who has followed Nextbop for a while may possibly know our strong feelings about Phronesis-- one of our favorite piano/bass/drums trio on the planet. We mean it. Jasper Høiby, Ivo Neame, and Anton Eger are among the most explosive, inventive, rambunctious, precise, and astounding musicians in this medium and they show no signs of stopping. Case in point-- they're about to release their first new album of new material in two years (last year, they were changing the game by playing big band arrangements of their compositions, so this year, they go back to basics) with the new album, We Are All, out September 14th on Edition Records. They just dropped the first single, "One For Us", which opens up the album. Check out video of the trio playing the tune in the studio after the jump and get hype for We Are All this September.

Keyboardist/vocalist Brandon Coleman is an LA-based musician who is in cahoots with a bunch of the all stars of that scene-- Kamasi Washington, Flying Lotus, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, (Ciara, Babyface, others on the list of varying genres), etc. On September 14th, Coleman is set to release his new album, Resistance, which based on the first single, "Giant Feelings", looks to be in a soulful, funky vein of music. Of course, when saxophonist Kamasi Washington is in league on the tune, things do tend to go in that direction, so get ready to hear more of those steady rising singalongs and watch the video for "Giant Feelings" featuring Patrice Quinn & Techdizzle after the jump.

Wojtek Mazolewski Quintet - 'Polka - Worldwide Deluxe Edition' (Album Review)

Polish bassist/composer Wojtek Mazolewski has a great understanding of groove. There's an easy sensibility to his music, just coasting along. Even in its heights, the music seems to have arrived there not through ostentatious backflips but by gentle rises. It all makes sense together, which could be why Mazolewski is presenting his work remastered for the rest of the world as Polka - Worldwide Deluxe Edition, out August 3rd on Whirlwind Records.

Now Vs Now - "Motion Potion" (Stream)

That absolute weirdo Jason Lindner is back with his group Now Vs Now with a new album, The Buffering Cocoon, out September 14th on Jazzland Recordings. NvN's third album, with bassist Panagiotis Andreou and drummer Justin Tyson, is pretty great (I've been listening to a preview stream and can't wait to tell you all about it). Lindner has found even odder depths of sound to uncover and he's synthier than ever. Take for example the first single off the new album, "Motion Potion". It's a dirty little jam that you'll want to rock for a while until The Buffering Cocoon drops in a couple months. Give it some play after the jump.

I had a good birthday weekend of which this show was part of it, because I always enjoy making this show. I did, however, break my phone on Friday, so that was a downer, but that doesn't have anything to do with this week's music.
