The Long Wait is Over. Mare Nostrum presents 'The Sound of Europe'….. Part Two.Sardinian trumpeter Paolo Fresu, French accordionist Richard Galliano and Swedish pianist Jan Lundgren form the trio “Mare Nostrum” (meaning our sea, and the Romans' name for the Mediterranean). This band forges connections between the discrete musical cultures of its three protagonists.

Countless listeners worldwide have been captivated by their music, by this distinctive 'sound of Europe.'When the first album “Mare Nostrum” appeared in 2007, critics in many countries were unanimous in their opinion that these three musicians had succeeded, they had found their way to forging something of timeless beauty. This “lyrical jazz ensemble with a keen sense of composure” (Downbeat, USA) had created “a wonderful album of genuine warmth”

CD ACT Bugge Wesseltoft: Everybody Loves Angels

2017
Bugge Wesseltoft - pian

Bugge Wesseltoft and producer Siggi Loch have returned to the original concept of “Snowing” in “Everybody Loves Angels”. The title is a metaphor for the kind of weightless ease which the music conveys; and this time it's not just for winter...The success story started in 1997. Bugge Wesseltoft had just released the album “New Conception Of Jazz” on his own newly-founded label Jazzland. That album broke new ground...

CD ECM Records Michael Galasso: High Lines

2002
Michael Galasso - vioara
Terje Rypdal - chitara electrica
Frank Coln - percutie
Marc Marder - contrabas

Classically-trained violinist/composer Galasso’s first ECM release in 20 years is a mix of influences from jazz and classical music to – probably – idioms from the near, middle and far east he has encountered in his ceaseless wandering around the world. … Galasso, who composed all these, mostly short, pieces, is a virtuoso of breathtaking quality, and Rypdal fills the performances in which he takes part with some compelling texture. Whether or not it may be considered jazz doesn’t really matter; it remains one of the more unusual releases of the year.

CD ECM Records Ralph Towner: Anthem

2000
Ralph Towner - chitara clasica, double-six

Operating somewhere between contemporary classical and jazz, ... Towner occupies a unique niche in jazz. Known for his carneo on Weather Report’s 1972 album I Sing The Body Electric and work with the classical crossover group Oregon and countless ECM luminaries, he is perhaps best loved for his solo recitals, of which Anthem is the latest – and it’s a gem. There’s a pair of jazz standards, but the majority of the mesmerising set comprises original 12-string and classical guitar pieces, aching, ruminative sketches and developed compositions of such emotional vividness and musical detail that they hardly seem to be the work of one man. The music tugs at the listener’s attention and, with breathtaking balance and control, is always compelling. The acoustic guitar has never sounded better, and neither has this amazing guitar player.

CD ECM Records Egberto Gismonti: Danca Des Cabecas

1977
Egberto Gismonti - chitara, pian, voce, flaute
Nana Vasconcelos - percutie, berimbau, voce

Egberto Gismonti’s Dança das Cabeças (recorded 1976) was the first ECM disc from the brilliant Brazilian guitarist and pianist and the first document of Egberto’s collaboration with percussionist Nana Vasconcelos. It was a revelatory blending of sounds, Gismonti’s finely sculpted compositions irradiated by Nana’s Afro-Brazilian rhythm concept and his rainforest sounds. Dança das Cabeças won the German Record Critics Prize as Album of the Year in 1977.

CD ECM Records Nik Bartsch's Ronin: Stoa

2006

Nik Bartsch - pian
Sha - bas clarinet, contrabas clarinet, alto saxofon
Bjorn Meyer - bas
Kaspar Rast - tobe
Andi Pupato - percutie

This is music that throbs with a pulsating dynamism that’s almost hypnotic. … Woven into the rhythmic tapestry is startling imagery that grows from simple beginnings – the way he exploits a single note using space and dynamics in the introduction of “Modul 36” gradually evolves into a musical journey that sweeps you along with its deft twists and turns. …

The elements of simplicity and purity are both impressive in their momentary effect but they are also musical gestures that reveal their secrets reluctantly. Bärtsch’s mysterious music will be around for a lot longer than the quick fix that majority taste seems to clamour for.

CD ECM Records Nik Bartsch's Mobile: Continuum

2016
Nik Bartsch - pian
Sha - bas clarinet, contrabas clarinet
Kaspar Rast - tobe, percutie
Nicolas Stocker - tobe, percutie
Etienne Abelin - vioara
Ola Sendecki - vioara
David Schnee - viola
Solme Hong - violoncel
Ambrosius Huber - violoncel

Few musicians have continued to hone a concept as singularly unique and instantly recognizable, irrespective of context, as that being explored by Swiss pianist Nik Bärtsch since he first formed Mobile with Don Li, Kaspar Rast and Mats Eser in 1997. First emerging on record in 2001 with Ritual Groove Music (Self-Released, reissued Ronin Rhythm, 2006), Bärtsch has evolved three very different contexts with which to explore the confluence of trance-inducing minimalist elements with rigorous, ritualistic compositional constructs, a deep interest in Japanese culture and other musical touchstones. While all three contexts—in addition to the all-acoustic Mobile, Bärtsch has performed and recorded as a solo pianist, as well as with the more elastic and jazz/funk-centric Ronin—share common DNA-level elements, each context is also different: refracting Bärtsch's underlying architectures through a series of disparate prisms.

CD ECM Records Pat Metheny Group

1978

Pat Metheny - chitara
Lyle Mays - pian, claviaturi
Mark Egan - bas
Dan Gottlieb - tobe

AllAboutJazz:
"This album stands out abit from the others I've reviewed here so far (for a number of reasons). I've been a Metheny fan for half of my life, but had never thought of his work as groove oriented (except for the relatively recent commercially-successful release). But, I was wrong. I recently became more attuned to grooves through a playing experience and it opened my ears to hearing grooves better. When I put this album on recently after a long time since I had listened to it, I was amazed. All of a sudden, I hear the groove. Not that this is incredibly funky stuff—I wouldn't go so far as to call Metheny's work funky- but the pocket is there.

CD ECM Records Jan Garbarek: Legend Of The Seven Dreams

1988
Jan Garbarek - saxofon tenor si sopran, flaut, percutie
Rainer Bruninghaus - claviaturi
Nana Vasconcelos - percutie , voce
Eberhard Weber - bas electric

ecmreviews.com:
"Garbarek’s lines are as smooth as the jet stream in the folk tale that is “He Comes From The North.” The immediately recognizable berimbau of Vasconcelos lifts this piece to even greater heights of emotive power. An inauguration ceremony in sound, this blissful opener holds attention for every second of its fourteen-minute expanse.

CD ECM Records Tord Gustavsen Trio: Being There

2007

Tord Gustavsen - pian
Harald Johnson - contrabas
Jarle Vespestad - tobe

Gustavsen’s tunes are hypnotically strong, and the integration of bass and drums in his regular trio is total. … It’s possible for even hardcore jazzers to get the point about Tord Gustavsen. This one just did. [ John Fordham, The Guardian ]

Jarle Vespestad - tobe

With the minimum of fuss, the Nordic master of less-is-more piano has won an international audience. Here he broadens his palette… In various combinations, the players conjure a spare beauty from lullabies, hymns and ballads. [ John Bungey, The Times ]

2003

Tord Gustavsen - pian

Changing Places is an unusual achievement … Technical display is at a premium, and the compositions, all by the leader, are beguiling simple and intensely melodic. [ Andy Hamilton, Jazz Review ]

CD ECM Records Tord Gustavsen Trio: The Ground

2005

Tord Gustavsen - pian
Harald Johnsen - contrabas
Jarle Vespestad - tobe

Gustavsen’s band does all the things you would expect an ECM label trio to do – pellucid, contemplative melodies ebb and flow over shimmering cymbals and brushed drums – but they do more besides. There are hints of gospel, the blues and those warm folksy melodies that Keith Jarrett wrote around the time of My Song. [ John Bungey, The Times ]

CD ECM Records Tord Gustavsen: What Was Said

2016

Tord Gustavsen - pian, electronice, sintetizator de bas
Simin Tander - voce
Jarle Vespestad - tobe


This is essentially a vocal record that contains more singing than any previous Gustavsen release and it also introduces an element of electronica to what has previously been an exclusively acoustic music.

CD ECM Records Andy Sheppard: Surrounded By Sea

2015
Andy Sheppard - saxofoane
Eivind Aarset - chitara
Michel Benita - contrabas
Sebastian Rochford - tobe

Extending the range of his widely-praised Trio Libero project with Michel Benita and Seb Rochford, Andy Sheppard adds Eivind Aarset (who made significant contributions to 2008’s Movements In Colour) to the band. With Aarset’s ambient drones and electronic textures as a backdrop, Sheppard and co seem to have even more space to explore.

CD ECM Records Andy Sheppard: Movements In Colour

2009
Andy Sheppard - saxofoane
John Parricelli - chitara
Eivind Aarset - chitara, electronice
Arild Andersen - contrabas
Kuljit Bhamra - tabla, percutie


Although Andy Sheppard has been featured on a dozen albums with Carla Bley for WATT, this is his first album for ECM proper. The British saxophonist heads an international quintet in a programme of self-penned pieces, all buoyant and strongly melodic.

Sheppard’s elegant saxophone and the strongly-contrasting guitars of Parricelli and Aarset are lifted up by the rhythmic drive of Arild Andersen’s muscular bass and the crisp, dynamic tabla of Kuljit Bhamra, a musician well known in the UK as a key figure in the Asian pop and bhangra movements.

CD ECM Records Andy Sheppard, Michel Benita, Sebastian Rochford: Trio Libero

2012

Andy Sheppard - saxofon tenor si sopran
Michel Benita - contrabas
Sebastian Rochford - tobe

The opening Libertino, a typically light-stepping Sheppard melody, somehow manages to create the idea of a witty lament. Wispy tenor-sax fragments turn into quiet snare-drum tattoos peppered with sonorous tom-tom accents. A single standard (I'm Always Chasing Rainbows) is a Jan Garbarek-like soprano sax drifter quietly prodded and pulled by Benita's bass. The long-note and bowed-bass Spacewalk Parts 1 and 2 have a pristine, shivery beauty, and the closing When We Live on the Stars has a slow and sonorous pop song quality. It's low-key, but glowing with life. [ John Fordham, The Guardian ]

CD ECM Records John Abercrombie / Dave Holland / Jack DeJohnette: Gateway 2

1977
Gateway:
John Abercrombie - chitara, mandolina electrica
Dave Holland - contrabas
Jack DeJohnette - tobe, pian

In this era of tawdry sequels, it’s almost difficult to believe that John Abercrombie, Dave Holland, and Jack DeJohnette could have surpassed the profundity of 1975’s seminal Gateway. I say “almost” only because each member of this dream trio has yet to let this committed listener down and always comes to the studio bearing a basket overflowing with fresh ideas. Not only do the results of this 1978 follow-up not disappoint, they ascend into their own category. [ ecmreviews ]

2017
Bjorn Meyer - bas electric si acustic

There is a distinguished tradition of solo bass albums on ECM, but Provenance is the first to be devoted to the electric bass guitar. Björn Meyer, Swedish-born and Swiss-based, has shaped a unique voice for his instrument inside the most diverse contexts, working alongside Persian harpist and singer Asita Hamidi, Swedish nyckelharpa player Johan Hedin, and Tunisian oud master Anouar Brahem.
