CD ECM Records Ralph Towner: My Foolish Heart

2017

Ralph Towner - chitara clasica, double-six

In his dedication to the acoustic instrument, and his exploration of the borders of both classical and jazz, Ralph Towner is effectively the guitarist equivalent of Keith Jarrett: there’s a calm, reflective quality, allied to an intense involvement, about both players’ solo work, of which ‘My Foolish Heart’ may be Towner’s best since his sublime 1973 debut ‘Diary’.

CD ECM Records David Torn: Only Sky

2015
David Torn - chitara si oud electric

"a vibrating collage full of shimmering sonic shapes, a dark, urban electronic soundscape – a potent mix of jazz, free-form rock and technology that is both demanding and rewarding."

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 ]

CD ECM Records Gary Peacock / Marilyn Crispell: Azure

2011

Gary Peacock - contrabas
Marilyn Crispell - pian

“Azure” features beautiful duets by two great improvisers whose compatibility was proven long ago. Gary Peacock and Marilyn Crispell made outstanding music together in Marilyn’s trio with the late Paul Motian, on ECM albums including “Nothing ever was, anyway” and “Amaryllis”, but their duo project also has an extensive history, until now undocumented on disc.

CD ECM Records Gary Peacock: Tales Of Another

1977

Gary Peacock - contrabas
Keith Jarrett - pian
Jack DeJohnette - tobe

"The grouping on this album represents a milestone in ECM outfits, persevering to the present day as it has in the form of Keith Jarrett’s mighty standards trio. Though a far cry from the ecstatic overloads honed over years of synergy and touring, there is an almost naïve charm to this effort and the evenhanded musicianship that sustains it. Each of these six “tales” begins in loveliness. Piano and bass bring the most urgency to bear, as in the gorgeous “Vignette,” in which Peacock gets his first lilting solo, and its follow-up, “Tone Field.” Both start off slow and sure, with DeJohnette giving the barest hint of traction and Jarrett biting deeply into fractured themes.

CD ECM Records Anat Fort Trio + Gianluigi Trovesi: Birdwatching

2016

Anat Fort - pian
Gary Wang - contrabas
Roland Schneider - tobe
Gianluigi Trovesi - clarinet alto

Listening to this album for the first time, I was slightly thrown by the alto clarinet. Not a familiar voice like the soprano or bass clarinet, hearing over the course of full album took a little time to fully appreciate the range and nuances of the instrument, and assimilate Trovesi's musical language and tone. Playing with a bitter sweet sound, the clarinettist will colour and manipulate his sound, interpreting the written score and reacting to the rhythm section as if he too were a regular fixture of the ensemble. […] Anat is not one to wear her heart on her sleeve, but that does not lessen the emotional content of her music. Close listening reveals a sharp mind at work with each idea presented without any excess baggage, just lean and lithe lines that make their meaning felt succinctly before moving on. […] A captivating set that reveals an original voice continuing to grow. It will be interesting to hear how the Anat Fort Trio continue their journey, and I for one would relish the prospect of a solo album from this gifted enthralling pianist. [ Nick Lea, Jazz Views ]

CD ECM Records Mark Turner, Ethan Iverson: Temporary Kings

2018

Mark Turner - saxofon tenor
Ethan Iverson - pian

With Temporary Kings two of the most distinct voices on today’s jazz scene present their debut on record as a duo: Engaging in inspired dialogue Mark Turner and Ethan Iverson here explore aesthetic common ground in the atmosphere of a modernist chamber music-like setting at the Auditorio Stelio Molo RSI, Lugano. The saxophonist and the pianist had begun their association in the Billy Hart Quartet, where the two players featured sympathetically on two ECM albums by that band. The new duo album now contains six originals by Iverson (among them the nostalgic solo tune “Yesterday’s Bouquet”) and two by Turner (including “Myron’s World,” which has acquired near-classic status among contemporary jazz players). There’s an off-kilter blues (“Unclaimed Freight”) and a strikingly melodic, almost Ravelian opening track dedicated to the town where the album was recorded under ideal sonic conditions (“Lugano”), plus an interpretation of Warne Marsh’s playfully serpentine “Dixie’s Dilemma.”

CD ECM Records Enrico Rava Quintet: The Words And The Days

2007

Enrico Rava - trompeta
Gianluca Petrella - trombon
Andrea Pozza - pian
Rosario Bonaccorso - contrabas
Roberto Gatto - tobe

One of the most charismatic of jazz musicians, Enrico Rava has truly hit a purple patch in his career – he’s got a great band, he’s with the best label in the world and he’s making the finest music of a long, distinguished career. … This music will make you feel good about the world, maybe because it gives voice to all those values that however downtrodden won’t go away. I could tell you that this track is ballad, that one uptempo and this one has a Latin feel. But it deserves better than that. Simply, they should distil this, bottle it and serve it everywhere. A wizard and a true star. [ Duncan Heining, Jazzwise ]

CD ECM Records Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock, Jack DeJohnette: Tribute

1989

Keith Jarrett - pian
Gary Peacock - bas
Jack DeJohnette - tobe

AllMusic: "The Keith Jarrett Standards Trio gets back down to business with two CDs' worth of familiar and perhaps not-so-familiar tunes, recorded in one evening in Cologne, Germany. There is a concept this time, for all the standards carry a dedication to some jazz man or woman who performed them -- and they are not predictable choices; Lee Konitz for "Lover Man," "It's Easy to Remember" for John Coltrane, "All of You" for Miles Davis, etc.

Almost every number has a reflective solo piano introduction, with one of the notable exceptions being Jarrett's rolling, convoluted opening variations on "All the Things You Are" (Sonny Rollins). "Solar" (the Bill Evans tribute) has challenging, fractured interplay between Jarrett, Jack DeJohnette and Gary Peacock, and it directly segues into Jarrett's own obsessive "Sun Prayer," which seems to lose its way after a fine start.

CD ECM Records Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock, Jack DeJohnette: Inside Out

2000

Keith Jarrett - pian
Gary Peacock - contrabas
Jack DeJohnette - tobe

ecmreviews:
"Of his approach to this 2001 album, recorded live the year before in London, pianist Keith Jarrett says, “Don’t ask. Don’t think. Don’t anticipate. Just participate.” Where for so long he and his partners Gary Peacock and Jack DeJohnette had served up piping hot new takes on old recipes, here they decided to do away with all that and, with the exception of their version of the evergreen “When I Fall In Love” that concludes, let the music create itself. What in others’ hands would have been a risky venture turns into a balanced, intuitive record from these most capable sound-smiths.

CD ECM Records Wolfgang Muthspiel, Larry Grenadier, Brian Blade: Driftwood

2013

Wolfgang Muthspiel - chitara
Larry Grenadier - contrabas
Brian Blade - tobe

This album is one arc, one musical environment. Rapt atmospheres descend, then evolve. Muthspiel is a romantic, but he is also technically astute and concise. He plays very few nonessential notes. The essence of the Eicher aesthetic is cinematic. [ Thomas Conrad, Jazz Times ]

CD ECM Records Stefano Battaglia Trio: In The Morning - Music Of Alec Wilder

2015

Stefano Battaglia - pian
Salvatore Maiore - contrabas
Roberto Dani - tobe

Piano trios are becoming something of a speciality within the Italian jazz fraternity and now reaching the venerable age of fifty, leader and pianist Stefano Battaglia demonstrates why he is one of the leading exponents in both his country and on the European continent with this live recording from the Teatro Vittoria in Turin in April 2014. […] Battaglia is very much his own man and devotes the album to an exploration of one of the major, yet lesser known composers of what has become known as the great American songbook in Alec Wilder […] once again an ECM recording of distinction with impeccable sound as ever.

CD ECM Records Jack DeJohnette: In Movement

2016

Jack DeJohnette: tobe, pian, percutie electronica
Ravi Coltrane: saxofoane
Matthew Garrison: bas electric, electronice

"There is something of the "six degrees of separation" theory at work in this newly formed trio, led loosely, by the great Jack DeJohnette. The drummer/multi-instrumentalist works in the company of saxophonist Ravi Coltrane whose lineage is well known, and bassist/electronic artist Matthew Garrison whose father Jimmy Garrison was the bassist in John Coltrane's classic quartet. And, of course, DeJohnette, early in his career, played with the fathers of both of his trio mates. [ AllAboutJazz ]

CD ECM Records Charlie Haden, Carla Bley: The Ballad Of The Fallen

1983

Charlie Haden - bas
Carla Bley - pian, glockenspiel, aranjamente
Don Cherry - trompetaSharon Freeman French Horn
Mick Goodrick - chitara
Jack Jeffers - tuba
Michael Mantler - trompeta
Paul Motian - tobe, percutie
Jim Pepper - saxofoane, flaut
Dewey Redman - saxofon tenor
Steve Slagle - saxofoane, clarinet, flaut
Gary Valente - trombon

The outbursts of free improvisation throughout the album contrast the beautiful songs and add a confrontational side of protest to the music. After all the issues at hand do piss off these musicians. In a surprising move Downbeat Magazine selected Ballad of the Fallen as Jazz album of the year in 1984. ECM was a favorite label on the magazine in the early 80s. The Art Ensemble Of Chicago – Full Force won in 1981 and Old and New Dreams – Playing in 1982.

CD ECM Records Keith Jarrett: Hymns / Spheres

1976

Keith Jarrett - orga

“Hymns/Spheres”, Keith Jarrett’s celebrated 1976 encounter with the Trinity organ of Ottobeuren’s Benedictine abbey, is at last released in its entirety on CD in this double-disc set prepared from the original analog tapes. “No overdubs or technical ornamentations were utilized, only the pure sound of the organ in the abbey is heard”. The pure sound, as channelled by the mind, hands, and feet of one of the great improvisers of the age. When “Hymns/Spheres” was first released in 1976, some critics made comparisons with the organ music of Ligeti, Messiaen and Reger, but time has shown this to be an essential expression of Jarrett’s creativity, original to the core.

CD ECM Records The Gary Burton Quintet & Eberhard Weber: Ring

1974
Gary Burton - vibrafon
Mick Goodrick - chitara
Pat Metheny - chitara
Steve Swallow - bas
Bob Moses - percutie
Eberhard Weber - bas

ecmreviews.com:
"Gary Burton is in a class all his own. On the vibraharp he is pliant yet unbreakable with a certain flair for the understatedly powerful. Among the present company, he is perfectly at ease. No one tries to overpower him, and despite his melodic dominance he never looms for too long, receding into as many shadows as he casts. There’s not a single pretentious note to be heard; the flow between and within tracks barters its way across smooth waters. This is a nocturnal album all the way."

CD ECM Records Paul Bley: Live In Oslo

August 2008

Paul Bley - pian

A rare solo performance by one of jazz’s great originals, Canadian pianist Paul Bley, recorded live at the Oslo Jazz Festival in 2008 by Jan Erik Kongshaug and Manfred Eicher. There is nothing else quite like a Paul Bley concert. As the New York Times noted, “Mr. Bley long ago found a way to express his long, elegant, voluminous thoughts in a manner that implies complete autonomy from its given setting but isn't quite free jazz. The music runs on a mixture of deep historical knowledge and its own inviolable principles.' Here Bley, encouraged by an attentive and enthusiastic Norwegian audience shapes music in the moment, plays his own compositions, and brings the music to a fine conclusion in a performance of Sonny Rollins’s “Pent-Up House”.

CD ECM Records Horacio Lavandera - Dino Saluzzi: Imagenes, Music For Piano

Horacio Lavandera - pian

Dino Saluzzi: Imagenes, Music For Piano

Dino Saluzzi can still surprise us. Who knew that the master of the bandoneon had, for decades, been stockpiling compositions for other instruments? This album of pieces for piano features music written between 1960 and 2002, variously conceived in Salta, Buenos Aires, Stuttgart and on the road. It is music of great diversity, both distinct from and connected to Dino’s work as storytelling, improvising bandoneonist. In this more formal context, liner note writer Hans-Klaus Jungheinrich suggests, Saluzzi’s musical pictures take on an almost cubist quality, like a sequence of images viewed from multiple perspectives. Horacio Lavandera, a young Argentine pianist specialized in both classical music and contemporary composition (he has worked with both Boulez and Stockhausen), is an ideal Saluzzi interpreter, attuned both to his love of his homeland and his artistic need to travel widely.

CD ECM Records Charles Lloyd / Maria Farantouri: Athens Concert

Charles Lloyd - saxofon tenor, flaute, taragot
Maria Farantouri - voce
Jason Moran - pian
Reuben Rogers - contrabas
Eric Harland - tobe
Socratis Sinopoulos - lira
Takis Farazis - pian

AllMusic (Thom Jurek): "No one, save for perhaps Charles Lloyd, could have predicted that when he resumed his recording career in 1989 with ECM, he would scale such artistic heights as a player, a mentor, and a bandleader. Lloyd has taken part in many fascinating musical experiments: with the late Billy Higgins in Sangam with drummer Eric Harland and Indian master percussionist Zakir Hussain, as well as on his many quartet recordings. The latest version, with bassist Reuben Rodgers, Harland, and pianist Jason Moran, has been together just over four years.

CD ECM Records Billy Hart, Ethan Iverson Quartet: All Our Reasons

2011

Billy Hart - tobe
Mark Turner - saxofon tenor
Ben Street - contrabas
Ethan Iverson - pian

First ECM recording of a quartet formed in 2003. Originally billed as the Ethan Iverson-Mark Turner Quartet, it soon became the Billy Hart Quartet, and under this name has played shows to packed houses each year in New York City. The group’s first album for hard-bop label High Note in 2005 figured on many critics’ best-of-the year list. Since then, the ensemble’s music has gotten more free and spacious, a sensibility that aligns perfectly with ECM.
