The essential tunes on the OTR stereo this week. Let us know what tunes are giving you a thrill at the moment in the comments below.

Keith Jarrett “Rio” (ECM)

Music of intricate, delicate beauty and dashing, spellbinding colour from the pianist live show’s earlier this year in Brazil. Tracks from the album here – and here are some thoughts on coughing and other audience distractions at a Jarrett show.

Korallreven “An Album By Korallreven” (Acephale)

Lucious, sparkling dream-pop from Swedes Marcus Joons and Daniel Tjader, who play Dublin’s Twisted Pepper on December 8.

Robert Glasper Experience “Black Radio” (Blue Note)

One of the albums of 2012? Glasper and band are joined by Erykah Badu, Mos Def, Lupe Fiasco, King and many more for a barnstorming new-school jazz-hop masterpiece.

Walls “Coracle” (Kompakt)

Adventurous electronica for mind, body and soul from Alessio Natalizia and Sam Willis, who played an excellent gig in the capital last weekend.

Drake “Take Care” (Young Money/Universal)

The Canuck Romeo from Degrassi High’s rhymes about lost love and heartbreak over some thrilling productions.
