CD ECM Records Charles Lloyd Quartet: Mirror

2010
Charles Lloyd - saxofon tenor si alto, voce
Jason Moran - pian
Reuben Rogers - contrabas
Eric Harland - tobe, voce

Charles Lloyd has always led exceptional bands, and this is one of the finest. Following on from the live “Rabo de Nube” which won both the Readers and Critics Polls of Jazz Times, here is a studio album from the quartet with Jason Moran, Reuben Rogers and Eric Harland. Familiar material is reappraised and transformed in this session recorded in California in December 2009. Tracks include new versions of “Desolation Sound”, “Go Down Moses”, “Lift Every Voice”, and “The Water is Wide”. There are also a couple of superb Thelonious Monk covers, “Ruby, My Dear” and “Monks Mood” and a beautiful, free arrangement of the Beach Boys’ “Caroline No”.

"This debut album from Lester Bowie’s Brass Fantasy is still the outfit’s best. The moment those doo-wop horns saunter in for the title cut, you know you’ve come home. Bowie not only enthralls us with his fortitude, but manages to do so while keeping alive in his muted cone the dying flame of a bygone era.

CD ECM Records Ketil Bjornstad: Vinding's Music

Ketil Bjørnstad - pian
Gunilla Süssmann - pian
Jie Zhang - pian
Norwegian Radio Orchestra , dirijor Christian Eggen

A double album as literary soundtrack, its release coinciding with Norwegian publication of the one-volume edition of Ketil Bjørnstad’s highly-acclaimed fictional trilogy “To Music”/”The River”/”The Lady In The Valley”, and with the author’s 60th birthday on April 25. After keeping his musical and writing activities separate for decades, Ketil dissolved the boundaries with his “Vinding” books: “When I had the idea of writing a trilogy about the young piano student Aksel Vinding, I realised that I would have to grant music access to my world of writing. This felt surprisingly liberating, almost like a confession. Music is a powerful source of inspiration for many writers, and so it was for me when I relived, through the novels, my experiences as a young piano student in Oslo in the late 1960s and early 1970s.” When the trilogy was completed, a concert of music referenced in Bjørnstad’s narrative was mounted in Oslo. Pianists Jie Zhang and Gunilla Süssman, with the Norwegian Radio Orchestra, performed compositions by Beethoven, Chopin, Debussy, Ravel, Rachmaninoff, and Barber, with conductor Christian Eggen also heard as piano soloist in the second movement of Mozart’s A major piano concerto. A recording from the concert comprises volume two of the present set. Disc one features Bjørnstad as improvising solo pianist, meditating upon themes related to his protagonist.

CD ECM Records Enrico Rava, Stefano Bollani: The Third Man

2007

Enrico Rava - trompeta
Stefano Bollani - pian

They have been playing together since the early 1990s, Bollani hailing trumpeter Rava as his mentor, and Rava regarding Bollani as “perhaps the most gifted pianist since Art Tatum”. After Rava’s highly acclaimed “Easy Living” (quintet featuring Bollani) and the Rava/Bollani/Paul Motian collaboration “Tati”, comes this superb duo set, recorded in Lugano in November 2006. Here is marvellous linear playing and melodies plucked from the air, two master improvisers making freely lyrical jazz together – inspired by jazz history, South American music (an important source for both musicians), the Italian song tradition, contemporary composition and more, all developed, under Manfred Eicher’s supervision, into a unique programme. The repertoire includes compositions by each of the protagonists, two takes of Antonio Carlos Jobim’s famous ballad “Retrato Em Branco Y Preto”, a reinvention of “Estate” by the Italian singer Bruno Martino (whose own inspirations included Neapolitan folk song as well as jazz ) and spontaneous –yet profoundly melodic – free improvisation on the title track.

ecmreviews:
"Take one look at the thoughtful cover art of this seminal Keith Jarrett release, and you’ll gain immediate insight into what makes his trio click. Each curvaceous line brings a lifetime of movement, of study, and of passion to bear on the music at hand. And with these six standards resurrected to such profound levels, there’s nothing not to like.

CD ECM Records Dino Saluzzi: Kultrum

1982

Dino Saluzzi - bandoneon

Dino Saluzzi as a solo performer is one of the more remarkable musicians in contemporary music, in that he plays several instruments, including his beloved bandoneon with such precision, balance and subtle power. Kultrum is indeed a multi-cultural project that taps into the folkloric, ancestral, and traditional sounds of Native American Indians and his South American roots, enhanced by producer Manfred Eicher's Eurocentric notions.

CD ECM Records Shankar: Song For Everyone

1984

Shankar - vioara dubla cu 10 corzi, drum machine
Jan Garbarek - saxofon tenor si sopran
Zakir Hussain - tabla, conga
Trilok Gurtu - tobe si percutie

Shankar and Jan Garbarek’s previous collaboration, Vision, opened many people’s ears to the more fruitful possibilities of idiomatic blends. And while that initial project yielded a fascinating album in its own right, I always felt it lacked something I couldn’t quite articulate.

With Song For Everyone, that lack becomes clear once Trilok Gurtu and Zakir Hussain level the playing field with their earthy rhythms. In their presence, electric violin and saxophone can soar even higher, knowing there will always be a ground to return to. As if to underscore this point, Shankar also employs a drum machine, as in the delightful “Paper Nut” that inaugurates us into the album’s universe.

Richie Beirach - pian
Dave Holland - contrabas
Jack DeJohnette - tobe

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

George Adams made only one ECM recording, but it’s a beauty, placing his powerful tenor sax at the front of a talent-packed group, with Adams, Kenny Wheeler and Heinz Sauer all contributing compositions to the programme. “The spirit of Mingus hovers watchfully nearby; Adams is an original, though. His solos roil beneath the restraints of bebop structure, then sail wildly through the roof with a committed passion,” wrote Chicago Magazine. The tenor exchanges between Adams and Heinz Sauer are exciting, and George also delivers a very spirited vocal on “Got Something Good For You.” Recorded 1979.

CD ECM Records Barre Phillips: Mountainscapes

1976

John Surman - saxofoane, bas clarinet, sintetizator
Barre Phillips - contrabas
Stu Martin - tobe, sintetizator
Dieter Feichtner - sintetizator
John Abercrombie - chitara

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


Barre Phillips’s Mountainscapes brings together strongly contrasting elements, the furious high-energy playing of the Surman/Phillips/Martin trio juxtaposed with spacious impressionistic pieces originally created for Carolyn Carlson’s ballet dancers. The integration of acoustic instruments and electronics (with three of the musicians playing synthesizers) is beautifully balanced in the production. John Abercrombie dropped by the studio to jam on the last track, raising the energy level still higher. Recorded in March 1976, Mountainscapes was described by Melody Maker as “vast, awesome and glorious” and “a starting point for the shape of jazz to come.”

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

Steve Tibbetts’ first ECM session found the Minnesotan guitar player journeying with faithful percussionist Marc Anderson to Oslo in 1981, to make what might be his most stark and inner-directed recording, etching sounds in silence. “There is nothing in this music (with titles such as “The Big Wind,” and “Walking”) to hang any defining label on”, commented the Oakland Tribune. “It has overtones of classical, jazz, rock and Martian style but mostly it is just an extreme pleasure for the senses. Approach with an open mind.”

1992

Stephan Micus - steel drum, voce, dilruba, suling, kortholt, nay, sinding

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

Stephan Micus shapes his music by taking the instruments of the world out of their cultural, historical or traditional contexts and blending them in new ways. The colours of To The Evening Child are established through instrumental combinations involving dilruba (a string instrument associated with Hindustani classical music), suling (reed flute of the Balinese gamelan orchestra), nay (end-blown flute of the Middle East), sinding (West African harp), kortholt (German renaissance reed instrument) and steel drum (associated with West Indian calypso). “This music sounds in those hushed spaces where the universe inhales, the sound that keeps all celestial bodies spinning” – Tyran Grillo, Between Sound and Space

Carmen Castaldi - tobe

The album, produced by Manfred Eicher at New York’s Sear Sound studio, draws upon Lovano’s history and development as a player who has addressed both jazz tradition and exploratory improvisation. “For me this recording is a statement of where I am, where I’ve been and where I may be headed.” In a performer’s note in the CD booklet he says of the recording, “The divine timing of interplay and interaction is magical. Trio Tapestry is a melodic, harmonic, rhythmic musical tapestry throughout, sustaining moods and atmospheres.”

Israeli-French pianist Yonathan Avishai has made important contributions to the music of Avishai Cohen, as documented on Into The Silence and Cross My Palm With Silver. In parallel, over the last five years, he has been developing his own project with the trio heard here, with Paris-based Israeli bassist Yoni Zelnik and Donald Kontomanou, French drummer of Guinean and Greek heritage. Sometimes known as the Modern Times Trio, its programme here opens with Duke Ellington’s “Mood Indigo”: “Ellington is still a thoroughly modern pianist and composer,” Yonathan Avishai muses.

CD ECM Records Elina Duni Quartet: Dallendyshe

2015

Elina Duni - voce
Colin Vallon - pian
Patrice Moret - contrabas
Norbert Pfammatter - tobe

Albanian is the softest of spoken languages in the gentle hands of Duni and her light, delicate and wordless vocals on ‘Sytë’ (‘Eyes’) are a sheer delight to hear while on the relaxed feel of the opener, ‘The Partridge’, there is a definite roots folk element in evidence. Elsewhere an a cappella intro on ‘Kur të pashë’ with minimalist accompaniment builds into an intense uptempo number with piano and drums in hot pursuit. Of special note here are the instrumentalists who certainly help to underline the spirit of a song without being merely illustrative and they are to be applauded for their sensitive accompaniment throughout.

CD ECM Records Elina Duni: Partir

2018

Elina Duni - voce, pian, chitara, percutie

Songs of love, loss and leaving. After two highly acclaimed albums with her jazz quartet, Elina Duni issues her most intimate recording to date. The entirely solo Partir features the Tirana-born vocalist, accompanied by her own piano, guitar and frame drum, interpreting songs from very diverse sources. From folk songs and chansons to songs of singer-songwriters. Here we find traditional music from Albania, Kosovo, Armenia, Macedonia, Switzerland and Arab-Andalusia as well as Jacques Brel’s “Je ne sais pas”, Alain Oulman’s “Meu Amor”, Domenico Modugno’s “Amara Terra Mia”, Elina’s own “Let Us Dive In” and more. Duni’s uniquely-expressive voice and pared-down arrangements locate a common thread of longing that runs through the material. Partir was recorded at Studios La Buissone in the South of France in July 2017, and produced by Manfred Eicher.

CD ECM Records Eleni Karaindrou: Dust of Time

ECM’s recordings of Eleni Karaindrou’s music for films have always been more than “soundtracks”: they stand as independent artworks. So it is with the music written originally for Angelopoulos’s “Dust of Time”. In these intensely melodic compositions created from a delicate balance of instrumental colours, violin, cello and harp are especially important, as Karaindrou notes, “not only because of their own distinctiveness but also because of the inner quality of three participating musicians who live in Greece but were born in Rumania and Albania (Sergiu Nastasa, Renato Ripo, Maria Bildea). The flavour of their own musical tradition (tsiganiko) and of a very special inner feeling, permeates their playing. I had the feeling that the accordion had to pervade certain special moments with its colour; and the oboe should add some emotional touches on the canvas of my music.”

The first edition, issued under the title Music For Films focused primarily upon the director's great Trilogy of Silence (Voyage To Cythera, The Beekeeper, and Landscape In The Mist). The second presented music written for The Suspended Step Of The Stork, Angelopoulos' critically-heralded 1991 film.

CD ECM Records Ralph Alessi: Quiver

2016

Ralph Alessi - trompeta
Gary Versace - pian
Drew Gress - contrabas
Nasheet Waits - tobe

The trumpeter seems to have found an ideal venue, his penchant for the oblique statement and ventilated ensemble nicely couched in a pristine recording and a magical ensemble. Alessi’s compositions have an allusive vibe, less outright statements than skeletons on which the band drapes its sounds […] The quality of bold indirectness that makes ‘Quiver’ so exceptional is also integral to Alessi’s playing. He can squeeze a run like a lemon, juicing a melody into a little pool of liquid, or he may croon as on ‘Heist’, growing animated but never brash, always reaching for refreshing notes.

CD ECM Records Ralph Alessi: Baida

2013

Ralph Alessi - trompeta
Jason Moran - pian
Drew Gress - contrabas
Nasheet Waits - tobe

On these 10 pieces he sounds quietly wired and fascinated by what his partners are firing at him, while not remotely detached from his signature virtues of tonal purity and unflustered invention. All the pieces are his, from the initially free-fluttering title track with its soft trumpet doodles over slow-moving piano and percussion, through the delicately prancing ‘Chuck Barris’, to the weaving ‘Throwing Like a Girl’ with its shivery snare-drum tattoo and prodding piano lines. Moran is as attuned to his surroundings as ever, Gress and Waits keep the pressure up but not the volume, and occasionally the whole set sounds eerily like the mid-60s Miles Davis quintet reinvented as a shyly slinky, contemporary-cool-jazz tribute.
