CD Naim Empirical: Out N In

In stoc

2009

Tom Farmer - contrabas
Nathaniel Facey - saxofon alto
Julian Siegel - bas clarinet, saxofon tenor
Shaney Forbes - tobe
Lewis Wright - vibrafon

One of the great things about tributes is that they allow one to revisit and appreciate the influence of artists that deserve more exposure. This is definitely the case with the British group Empirical's tribute to reed player and composer, Eric Dolphy. Out 'n' In was released in 2009 and is still a text book example of how tributes should be done. Instead of playing an album of cover tunes, the group has internalized the influence of Dolphy and created its own original compositions, but for good measure, two compositions from the master are also thrown in the mix. Both of them, "Hat & Beard" and "Gazzelloni," are from Dolphy's iconic Blue Note album Out to Lunch (1964) and prove that it is possible to play experimental jazz music that swings. Especially bassist Tom Farmer knows how to get into a deep groove. [ All About Jazz ]

CD Naim Fred Simon: Dreamhouse

In stoc

2000

Fred Simon - pian
Kelly Sill - contrabas
Sarah Allen - tobe

Dreamhouse is a soaringly beautiful blend of piano, bass and drums, played with the laid-back ease synonymous with true jazz musicians. Fred Simon, Kelly Sill and Sarah Allen have pooled their formidable talents to record this, their aptly titled first album as a trio. Fred Simon's passion manifests itself in this album; he has written all the tracks himself except one. He has been making music for nearly thirty years, composing for records, live performance, film, dance and television.

CD Naim Fred Simon: Since Forever

In stoc

2009

Fred Simon - pian
Paul McCandless - English horn, oboi,saxofon sopran, bas clarinet, fluier
Steve Rodby - contrabas
Mark Walker - percutie

A pianist of rare compositional lyricism, it's remarkable how one event in Fred Simon's life has led, almost inescapably, to the present. Touring with woodwind multi-instrumentalist Paul McCandless in support of the Oregon co-founder's Premonition (Windham Hill, 1992), the keyboardist found himself onstage with Pat Metheny Group bassist Steve Rodby and soon-to-be-Oregon drummer, Mark Walker. That tour ultimately led to Simon's Remember the River (NAIM, 2004), an intimate chamber jazz affair featuring Rodby and McCandless. With that trio still intact, Simon now aims for more propulsive territory by introducing Walker to the mix

If Remember the River was an album of grace, charm, and dignity, then Since Forever recaptures those same qualities but ups the ante with a stronger rhythmic force and more advanced group interaction. A beautiful, True Stereo recording, it's sure to be a sleeper hit of 2009—an album of impassioned sensitivity, more expansive dynamics, and even clearer narrative arc. [ AllAboutJazz ]

CD Naim Hobgood, Torff, Wertico: State Of The Union

In stoc

1999

State of the Union

Laurence Hobgood - pian
Brian Q.Torff - bas
Paul Wertico - tobe, percutie

"In 1997, a remarkable new trio staffed by pianist Laurence Hobgood, bassist Brian Torff and drummer-percussionist Paul Wertico released a striking debut, Union. The shimmering textures and haunting lyricism of that CD signaled that a potentially important jazz trio had arrived and instantly stoked interest in a follow-up recording. To listeners who value this trio, and there are many, two years seemed like a long time between releases, but State Of The Union was well worth the wait. Here are three remarkably spontaneous improvisers unafraid to veer between simple diatonic melodies and provocative splashes of dissonance, between gently swinging rhythms and free-form, unmetered statements. The thrust of this recording, as with Union, is on translucent ensemble sound, delicately stated lyricism, an Impressionistic approach to color and an unusual degree of introspection and contemplation. With unmistakably original compositions (by each of the musicians), Hobgood/Torff/Wertico sounds like no other trio working today, and that alone is an impressive achievement."

Jazz Times

"This piano trio gets a unique sound by stretching things beyond customary limits via timbre, dynamics, voicings, but never bend basic harmonic or rhythmic rules to speak of. Daring and conservative at once, and quite creative in their chosen range. Hobgood is as Bleyful as Evansesque, with an ear for unexpected harmonic tension. These three work amazingly well together for a studio combination, and the choice of material is excellent."

CD Naim Laurence Hobgood: Left To My Own Devices

In stoc

2000

Laurence Hobgood - pian
Kurt Elling - voce

For Laurence Hobgood's debut recording as a leader, he has chosen the solo piano format. It's a challenge for the most skilled of performers, but for the clearly brilliant Hobgood, it all seems as pure and natural as the driven snow of his native Chicago. Ideas easily tumble forth, rearrangements of standards sound renewed and revived, while the original material he plays is infused with a playful intensity and in many instances classical quality. His regular running mate vocalist Kurt Elling appears on four selections as crooner, wise man or surreal romantic soothsayer. Meanwhile it is Hobgood, as impressive a player as there is anywhere, who commands total attention.

CD Naim Laurence Hobgood: When The Heart Dances

2008

Laurence Hobgood - pian

Kurt Elling's long-time pianist, Laurence Hobgood, is no stranger to leading a recording session. He has released four previous recordings on Naim Jazz in the last 10 years. He is a durable pianist, a bit of a cross between Red Garland and George Winston, with a smidge of Bill Evans thrown in for seasoning. On When the Heart Dances, Hobgood duets with bassist Charlie Haden and is joined by Elling on three of the eleven selections. [AllAboutJazz]

Jan Garbarek - saxofon tenor si sopran
Gary Peacock - bas
Palle Mikkelborg - trompeta, flugelhorn
Peter Erskine - tobe

editie Touchstones - format mini-vinil replica, coperti gatefold, cartonate

Gary Peacock’s recordings of the 1980s are production projects on which great players convened to play the bassist’s tunes. And the bass is fully a lead voice here, with title piece Guamba a Peacock solo to open the proceedings. As Paul Bley once said, “Gary is one of those rare musicians you could always count on to play better than you.” Nonetheless, there are mighty contributions from saxophone, trumpet and drums, with Jan Garbarek in particularly strong form. Jazz Forum: “Garbarek plays with magisterial power here.” Recorded 1987.

“The trumpeter sketches a succession of melodies and moods around and over the rich textural detail and earthy solidity of Mr Blackwell’s drumming,” noted Robert Palmer in The New York Times. “The melodies come from Spain, Africa, Jamaica and the modern jazz compositions of Thelonious Monk, but Mr Cherry and Mr Blackwell transform them into a personal music that is as urbane and international as they are. Together, they make El Corazón one of the most impressive duet albums of recent years.” This magical 1982 album, overflowing with character, has remained the reference recording for trumpet and drums duos.

John Surman and Jack DeJohnette first played together in 1968, but didn’t make a duo album together until The Amazing Adventures of Simon Simon in 1981. Immediately recognised as a special album it won the Record of the Year Award in Jazz Forum’s Readers Poll. The press was equally enthusiastic. Down Beat: “Unrestrained delight! The stunning Adventures of Simon Simon shatters through several stylistic barriers in the most swingful of fashions – and goes right to the heart of modern musical artistry…5 stars.”

New Directions found drummer/pianist Jack DeJohnette reflecting on the multiple routes his musical life had taken and summarizing them in a single band. “My idea was to put together a cast of unlikely characters”. He’d worked with Eddie Gomez in the Bill Evans Trio, played extensively with John Abercrombie in the Gateway trio and a new alliance with Art Ensemble trumpeter Lester Bowie reconnected Jack to the experimental spirit of the early AACM. “With Lester added we had four strong and very different characters, could cover a lot of musical areas, and the chemistry was fantastic.” New Directions, recorded in 1978, won France’s Prix du Jazz Contemporain de L’Academie Charles Cros.

1982

Miroslav Vitous bas

John Taylor pian
Jon Christensen tobe

editie Touchstones - format mini-vinil replica, coperti gatefold, cartonate

This quartet was the primary context for the Czech bassist Miroslav Vitous’s creativity in the late 70s and early 80s. “Like Mingus, Vitous is a real leader from the bass, and the music is all the stronger for it” – Gramophone. With three excellent writers in the line-up (John Surman and John Taylor as well as the leader) the quartet had an abundance of material to draw upon. Journey’s End includes “U Dunaje U Prešpurka” which Miroslav had played with the Junior Trio with Jan Hammer, as well as Surman’s Thomas Hardy-inspired ballad “Tess”, and Taylor’s “Windfall”. Collective improving capacities are to the fore on “Carry On, No. 1” which builds on the template of Jon Christensen’s drum patterns. Recorded 1982.

The modestly titled Cello has a cover image by Jean-Luc Godard and much of the music featured here gradually made its way into the great director’s films. This music paints images in the mind. Blogger Tyran Grillo wrote that “David Darling’s Cello is one of the most stunning albums ever to be released on ECM in any genre. Its fluid paths feel like home. Darling plows the improvisatory depths of his soul, given free rein in the studio to paint the negative spaces in between those clouds on the album’s cover, ever deeper, ever truer to the core of something alive.” Recorded 1991 and 1992.

“The phenomenal strength of Dave Holland’s bass pushes Steve Coleman and Jack DeJohnette into their most powerful work to date,” opined the Sydney Morning Herald. “The subtlety of Coleman’s inflections, the poise and complexity of his lines, are at the service of a very deep musical feeling. He is the best altoist to have emerged in a long time.” Recorded 1988.

An extended band deliver a remarkable sequence of tone-trances, at times faintly suggestive of Carla Bley and Gil Evans, but based on very small melodic motifs, given strength and mesmeric fascination by progressive harmonic overlays and tonal variation. Ulrikas Dans is a six-note ascending figure that turns into a surging clamour of sound, Intangible Waltz like Carla Bley drifting through musical dry ice, African Sunrise like exuberant Gild Evans and For Edward and Breathe as still and focused as a yoga meditation. Wonderful.
