CD ECM Records Billy Hart / Ethan Iverson Quartet: One Is The Other

2013

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

The second ECM album by the Billy Hart Quartet is a major musical statement, and one of the outstanding jazz albums of the season. The group’s reach – already broad on 2011’s widely-acclaimed All Our Reasons – is yet more expansive here. Strong compositions – by leader-drummer Hart, tenorist Mark Turner and pianist Ethan Iverson – reflect upon a wide swathe of the music’s history, and are distinguished by vivid and imaginative solos and wonderful interplay.

CD ECM Records Louis Sclavis Quartet: Silk and Salt Melodies

2014

Louis Sclavis - clarinet
Gilles Coronado - chitara
Benjamin Moussay - pian, claviaturi
Keyvan Chemirani - tobe

Leading French clarinetist-composer-improviser Louis Sclavis continues his musical adventures with Gilles Coronado and Benjamin Moussay, who contributed creatively to his Atlas Trio album Sources in 2011. The addition of Iranian classical percussionist Kevyan Chemirani, master of the zarb, has brought a new dimension to their world of sound. Adventurous contemporary music, says Sclavis, can be broad enough to embrace different but complementary traditions. “‘Silk and Salt’ indicates my desire for this work to take an imaginary, nomadic, Central Asian route, but also to address the idea of emigration in world history. In this case: journeying away from and back to jazz.”

CD ECM Records Joe Lovano: Trio Tapestry

2019

Joe Lovano - saxofon tenor
Marilyn Crispell - pian
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.”

CD ECM Records Yonatan Avishai: Joys And Solitudes

2019

Yonathan Avishai - pian
Yoni Zelnik - contrabas
Donald Kontomanou - tobe



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 Mats Eilertsen: Rubicon

2016

Norwegian bassist Mats Eilertsen has been a strong and supportive presence on a dozen ECM sessions to date. With Rubicon he steps forward to present his own music, with an international cast. The album features compositions originally written in response to a commission from the Vossajazz Festival. All About Jazz reviewed the premiere performance: “Rubicon proved to be a very dynamic work. Eilertsen ensured that each of the instrumentalists took their share of the spotlight, brought together combinations of players that emphasized tonal variation, and created ensemble sections bursting with life.” After fine-tuning the material on tour, Mats brought his septet to Oslo’s Rainbow Studio, where Manfred Eicher produced this definitive version of Rubicon in May 2015.

CD ECM Records Iro Haarla: Ante Lucem

2016

Iro Haarla - pian, harpa
Hayden Powell - trompeta
Trygve Seim - saxofoane
Uffe Krokfors - contrabas
Mika Kallio - tobe
+
Norrlands Operans Symfoniorkester, dirijor Jukka Iisakkila

Ante Lucem, a powerful suite for jazz quintet and symphony orchestra by Finnish pianist/harpist/composer Iro Haarla, was premiered at the Umeå Jazz Festival in October 2012. It was recorded at the Concert Hall of NorrlandsOperan in Umeå, and the album is drawn both from the premiere concert and from sessions on the following days. Ante Lucem is comprised of four separate yet closely linked pieces which reflect in different ways, the composer says, upon the “struggle between darkness and light.” In a review of the premiere for All about Jazz, John Kelman observed that “Haarla’s writing moved from maelstrom-like turbulence to deeper melancholy … Whether it was more dramatic turns with the full orchestra or breakdowns into smaller subsets, it was an evocative and provocative performance.”

CD ECM Records Michael Formanek: The Rub And Spare Change

2009

Michael Formanek - contrabas
Tim Berne - saxofon alto
Craig Taborn - pian
Gerald Cleaver - tobe

Bassist Michael Formanek’s latest album is a masterful work of postmodern jazz noir. […] “Too Big to Fail”, the last song on the album, serves as an excellent conclusion to “The Rub and Spare Change”. Formanek and company employ all of the musical tools they utilized on the previous tracks: droning keyboard that lulls the listener into a fugue state; staccato saxophone that pierces the song, leaving only scraps of sound; and a jumble of percussion and bass that forces out new rhythms. “The Rub and Spare Change” is an achievement brimming with energy, with creativity, and with a ferocious playfulness lacking in a lot of new jazz.

CD ECM Records Craig Taborn Trio: Chants

2012

Craig Taborn - pian
Thomas Morgan - contrabas
Gerald Cleaver - tobe

The songs on Craig Taborn Trio’s latest CD, ‘Chants’, have titles, but they don’t have borders, or ordinary structures, or typical narrative flow. The songs are positively shimmering, immaculately detailed, prismatic and very improvisational. But they don’t live quickly or land easily; they flutter and spiral, bend and float, and constantly surprise. [...] You hear strains of Keith Jarrett, Paul Bley’s rambles and Paul Motian’s trios, even the urgency and repetition of some electronic music, but ‘Chant’ is original to its core. And lovely as in the lulaby like stillness of ‘In Chant’ Taborn’s stately, sad acoustic piano lines wrapping around double bassist Thomas Morgan’s lyrical lines and Gerald Cleaver’s sizzling brush strokes.

CD ECM Records Nicolas Masson - Travelers

2018

Nicolas Masson - saxofon tenor si sopran, clarinet
Colin Vallon - pian
Patrice Moret - contrabas
Lionel Friedli - tobe

After two ECM albums with the cooperative trio Third Reel, Swiss reedman Nicolas Masson presents a quartet for which he is the sole composer. The group has existed for a decade with unchanged personnel, touring as Nicolas Masson’s Parallels, and the leader’s writing for it always encourages creative responses from the players. Amid the changing musical landscapes in which these travellers move, you will encounter some of Colin Vallon’s prettiest ballad playing, richly melodic bass from Patrice Moret, and subtle drum commentary from Lionel Friedli. Plus, of course, plenty of Masson’s pure-toned saxophone and elegant clarinet. Travelers was recorded at Auditorio Stelio Molo in Lugano in April 2017, and produced by Manfred Eicher.

CD ECM Records Third Reel ( Masson Pianca Maniscalco )

2012

Nicolas Masson - saxofon tenor, clarinet
Roberto Pianca - chitara
Emanuele Maniscalco - tobe

There’s fire and ice in the improvised music of Third Reel, making their ECM debut with this new disc. The trio of reeds, guitar and drums create soundscapes ranging from the ethereal to the explosive, but with an overall sense of musical unity. [...] It is Pianca’s guitar which sets the tone for each piece – on some tracks he is in full, rip-snorting Hendrix mode and on others he plays more melodically with a straightforward sound. Strong musical imaginations are at work here, and it’s a very promising debut.

CD ECM Records Ketil Bjornstad, Svante Henryson: Night Song

2013
Ketil Bjornstad - pian
Svante Henryson - violoncel

„Night Song“ begins with the evening version of “Night Song” and ends with the morning version of “Night Song”. The drama that takes place in between is peaceful, glorious, and gracefully played out on memorable pieces like “Reticence”, “Schubert Said”, “Share”, “Own”, “Sheen” and “Tar”. Somber but grateful, joyful but sad, happy but with regrets, sweet but with sorrowful memories, and finally acceptance of life with night’s warm embrance and our deliverance in our endless dreams for the coming morning.
Jean-Keith Fagon, Hill Rag
