CD ECM Records John Surman: Adventure Playground

1992

John Surman - saxofoane, bas clarinet
Paul Bley - pian
Gary Peacock - bass
Tony Oxley - drums

< ecm reviews.com >
John Surman’s Adventure Playground is an appendix to Paul Bley’s previous quartet efforts, only now we find them in the company of bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Tony Oxley. And while the session does drip with the same brooding viscosity one would come to expect, the added colors of Oxley enhance the music’s inner states with endless novelty. Take, for instance, the anthemic frenzy he builds in his sole compositional contribution, “Just For Now,” by which he holds smelling salts under the nose of the listener’s attention. And again in Surman’s “Quadraphonic Question,” a lumbering yet somehow airy thing to which the rules of interpretation can only bow in appreciation of their own dismantling, his talents are especially brilliant, describing a host of people and places in bursts of expansive inquiries while managing to give those delicate soprano lines all the room they need to weep.

CD ECM Records John Surman: The Spaces In Between

2007

John Surman - saxofon sopran si tenor, bas clarinet
Chris Laurence - contrabas
Rita Manning - vioara
Patrick Kiernan - vioara
Bill Hawkes - viola
Nick Cooper - violoncel

Almost a decade has passed since John Surman initiated this special project in which his reeds and the bass of Chris Laurence are flanked by, and interact with, a string quartet. “Coruscating”, the debut album from this unique combination of players, was recorded in January 1999 and met with a warm response from listeners to jazz, chamber music and beyond. An Editor’s Choice in Gramophone, hailed as “coruscating indeed, a classic ECM disc” by composer Ivan Moody in International Record Review, and as “an album of almost unspeakable beauty: fantastically vivid and evocative”, by rock magazine Mojo, the recording established a template on which Surman could build. And “The Spaces In Between” marks a big step forward...

CD ECM Records Arild Andersen: The Triangle

2003

Arild Andersen contrabas
Vassilis Tsabropoulos pian
John Marshall tobe

For a player with a background in classical music, pianist Vassilis Tsabropoulos has done wonders in the realm of jazz, and specifically improvisation. He still plays with a precise, sensitive touch and measures out dissonance in carefully metered pinches, but the tidal ebb and flow that characterizes this trio recording stands as remarkable evidence that he’s made the transition completely and elegantly. .. All three musicians on Triangle are active and forward players. John Marshall favors reinforcing the beat… Andersen, who has 15 recordings to his credit as a leader, plays with the confidence of a seasoned veteran and utilizes his deft and limber dexterity to connect the dots in counterintuitive ways.
A top pick of 2004

CD ECM Records Zehetmair Quartett - Bela Bartok, Paul Hindemith

Thomas Zehetmair - vioara
Kuba Jakowicz - vioara
Ruth Killius - viola
Ursula Smith - violoncel

Bartok’s 5th and Hindemith’s 4th Quartets make excellent companions on disc… Zehetmair and Co. have looked at Bartok’s manuscript, and seen the way in which it was committed to paper, seemingly at white-hot speed. That elemental energy makes it into the performance, and they’re alive to the folk elements, as well as the sardonic humour of the mechanical-music-box in the last movement. The hushed, eerily nostalgic opening of the Hindemith is a lovely foil to Bartok’s finale. … Both are fine performances, but perhaps the greatest achievement is in putting Hindemith after Bartok, and proving that he’s not found wanting.[ Andrew McGregor, BBC Online (CD of the week) ]

2016

Jakob Bro - chitara

Danish guitarist Jakob Bro creates magical music, impossible to categorize or capture. The songs on ‘Streams’ are best described as jewels revolving in mid-air, reflecting and refracting light. […] The beauty of ‘Streams’ is in its unknowingness, its sense of wonder and possibility. [ Ken Micallef, Downbeat ]

CD ECM Records Jan Garbarek: Eventyr

1980
Jan Garbarek - saxofon tenor si sopran, flaut
John Abercrombie - chitara electrica
Nana Vasconcelos - berimbau, percutie, voce

ecmreviews:
"Eventyr means “adventure.” Classical listeners may also recognize it as the name of Frederick Delius’s lovely 1917 tone poem, which is often translated as “Once Upon A Time” to underscore its origins in the folk tale collections of Norwegian scholar Peter Christen Asbjørnsen.

Here, the name adorns one of Jan Garbarek’s most recondite efforts to date and, like its own “Once Upon A Time,” houses a world of lessons and signs for those willing enough to interpret them. Joined by John Abercrombie and Nana Vasconcelos, he spins a string of seven improvisations, rounded out by a standard, “East Of The Sun And West Of The Moon” (Brooks Bowman), that doesn’t so much end the album as open us to its nebulous center.

2009

Manu Katche - tobe
Tore Brunborg - saxofoane
Jason Rebello - pian, claviaturi
Pino Palladino - bas
Jacob Young - chitara
Kami Lyle - trompeta, voce

ecmreviews:
"Third Round follows up drummer Manu Katché’s previous ECM albums, Neighbourhood and Playground with his deepest love long yet. Joining him are saxophonist Tore Brunborg, pianist Jason Rebello, bassist Palladino, and guitarist Jacob Young. The latter contributes to three polished tunes: the lovely, piano-driven “Keep On Trippin’,” the gorgeous “Springtime Dancing,” and the sunlit “Flower Skin,” in which his acoustic shines brightest. Also guesting is Kami Lyle, who sings her own lyrics and plays trumpet in the tender “Stay With You.” It’s something of a surprise in a soundscape dominated by grooves and paved improvisational avenues.

"From the moment “Blues” (Ornette Coleman) kicks off we’re already caught up in the flow of this magnificently swinging album. The band is in fine form, navigating its melodies with fluid energy. Bley proves his comfort in Coleman territory, easing his way through a series of dexterous detours. [ ecmreviews ]

CD ECM Records Stephan Micus: Nomad Songs

2015

Stephan Micus - Ndingo, Genbri, Steel-String Guitar, Suling, Voice, Nay, Rewab, Rabab, Twelve-String Guitar, Fourteen-String Guitar, Tin Whistle, Shakuhachi

German born Stephan Micus is quite simply one of the most intriguing musicians in music. The multi-instrumentalist has over the course of many decades, concocted his own dialect playing instruments from cultures he has studied across the world. Micus’ albums generally take a few years to create as he builds layer upon layer of instrumentation, crafting each album with a particular theme in mind […] Micus’ twenty first ECM album “Nomad Songs” reflects in some respects cultures that have been uprooted from their traditions, have lived in peace and harmony wandering the land and due to factors beyond their control have had to adapt and relinquish their lifestyles as nomads. He integrates these new instruments into a palette as a pan cultural stew that musically represents harmony from seemingly disparate elements. […] This world melange takes the listener to many established places and even imagined ones, from the mind of one of the most captivating musicians around. The listener is taken on their own nomadic journey, and no matter where it brings them, the depth will reveal something different each time. [ CJ Shearn, Blueceej.com ]

CD ECM Records CIRCLE: Paris Concert

1972

Chick Corea - pian
Anthony Braxton - instrumente de suflat cu ancie, percutie
Barry Altschul - percutie
David Holland - contrabas, violoncel

Supergrup Free-Jazz

Circle was a band on fire with creativity. Chick Corea and Dave Holland had just left Miles Davis’s band, keen to explore all parameters of new music in an improvised context. Anthony Braxton, equally inspired by Stockhausen and Coltrane, brought in new directions from the AACM. Barry Altschul’s resumé included extensive work with Paul Bley. Together they were, for a while, matchless. Corea called the Paris Concert (recorded 1971) the realization of a dream. Melody Maker: “Paris Concert is evidence that here was one of the most excitingly talented bands of recent years, for these 94 minutes of music simply burst with vigorous invention.”

1979

Sam Rivers - saxofon tenor si sopran, flaut

Dave Holland - contrabas
Thurman Barker - tobe

AllMusic: "Tenor saxophonist Sam Rivers (also heard on soprano and flute) teams up in a quartet with trombonist George Lewis, bassist Dave Holland and drummer Thurman Barker (doubling on marimba) for a date that certainly defies the stereotype of a typical ECM session. The seven Rivers originals, although sometimes having colorful melodies, are quite complex. However, the intriguing and very alert interplay between the brilliant musicians makes the music seem fairly logical and worth exploring by adventurous listeners. "

ecmreviews.com:
"While the breadth of the Art Ensemble of Chicago’s palette is certainly astonishing, what distinguishes the group from so many others is not a matter of quantity but of stride. Like its acronym, the heart of the 1980 performance recorded here is a trio of creative shapes: Lester Bowie, Joseph Jarman, and Roscoe Mitchell are wellsprings of improvisatory energy whose intermingling at times describes an entire album’s worth of material in a passing exchange.

Don Cherry este unul dintre marii trompetisti ai lumii, subestimat si mai putin cunoscut. Ed Blackwell este unul dintre poetii tobelor, un tobosar care nu bate ci canta la tobe. Dewey Redman este un saxofonist care a inceput cu free jazz la scoala lui Ornette si a continuat prin colaborari cu cvartetul american al lui Jarrett. Despre Charlie Haden nu ar mai fi mare lucru de adaugat, poate cel mai cunoscut nume din grup.
