A deep study of the bebop and classical guitar masters; explosive liberation-oriented music; a previously unreleased collaboration between two legends of African music. All this and more in our March 2020 list of ten albums that you need to know about.

Big Vicious (ECM) marks the debut album of charismatic trumpeter Avishai Cohen's new quintet of the same name. The band was launched after he relocated from the United States to his native Israel. "We're all coming from jazz, but some of us left it earlier," Cohen explains via a press release. In fact, each individual member's different background shapes the eclectic sound of Big Vicious. While the music remains jazz-centered, it also borrows textures from electronica, ambient music and psychedelia, as well as grooves and beats from rock, pop, trip-hop and more.  Release date: March 27.
