The London label Gearbox is releasing the EP I Am Chiminyo on 29 March. The drummer percussionist Chiminyo, Tim to his mum, fuses jazz, drum and bass, and electronic dance music. Each of the three tracks is performed on live drums, which then trigger synth sounds but there are no loops or backing tracks. 

Jacques Loussier has died aged 84. The pianist composer was best known for his jazz interpretations of the music of J. S. Bach. In 1959, he formed his first Play Bach Trio and sold millions of records with his various Play Bach records. More via Libération.
