Two New Jazz CDs

Charles de Ledesma reviews two new modern jazz releases. The first is Hyperion with Higgins, by Charles Lloyd, who plays the tenor saxophone. He has dedicated his album to the late Billy Higgins, who played drums with Lloyd. The second album is Not for Nothin, by the Dave Holland Quintet. Ledesma says both albums reinforce that modern jazz is still a potent creative musical force.
Both CDs are from the record label ECM.
