CD ECM Records Chick Corea / Gary Burton: Crystal Silence

Chick Corea - pian
Gary Burton - vibrafon

The Corea/Burton duo was brought together by producer Manfred Eicher, and Crystal Silence (recorded in 1972) brought a new chamber music sensibility into jazz improvisation, distinguished by an effervescence of melody and countermelody, with synchronized cascades of sound in continually changing harmonic movement. “It becomes a little magical,” said Corea. Stereo: “Crystal Silence is an album of extraordinary musicianship and rare beauty. Rarely have two musicians been so perfectly matched and rarely do we hear an album of such consistent excellence and originality. “

Bill Summers Percussion
Charles Sullivan Trumpet

editie Touchstones - format mini-vinil replica, coperti gatefold, cartonate
This is the first time on CD for a long-unavailable collectors’ item. With The Jewel in the Lotus, Maupin, the great multireedman, produced something visionary and, for some perhaps, joltingly unexpected: a series of mostly rubato aural paintings using piano, electric piano, bass, three drummers, multitracked saxophone, bass clarinet and flute, and trumpet on two tracks. … Soloists include Herbie Hancock and Maupin, but this is a composer’s work; ad libs and interplay notwithstanding, the ensemble is paramount.

CD ECM Records Steve Kuhn: Trance


Steve Kuhn - pian, pian electric
Steve Swallow - bas electric
Jack DeJohnette - tobe
Sue Evans - percutie

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

With the nostalgic sound of electric piano, near-Minimalist repetition at times and touches of tinkle-in-the –wind percussion, Steve Kuhn’s 1974 classic Trance is not just hypnotic, it’s more melodic and more intense than you might think at first. Kuhn’s effortless-sounding keyboard technique sustains every flight of his imagination as he’s borne up on the sometimes driving, sometimes lighter-than-air floating pulse of drummer Jack DeJohnette and bassist Steve Swallow. On CD for the first time, it’s a must listen.

CD ECM Records Steve Swallow: Home


Steve Swallow - bas
Sheila Jordan - voce
Steve Kuhn - pian
David Liebman - saxofoane
Lyle Mays - sintetizator
Bob Moses - tobe

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

A recording of great charm, Home features bassist Steve Swallow’s settings of the poetry of Robert Creeley for an inspired band of friends, each of whom is also a strikingly original presence. Creeley was very supportive of the project and loved particularly Sheila Jordan’s singing. Swallow, whose feeling for verse is as profound as his understanding of jazz, gets right inside the meaning of the texts and illuminates them with his melodies. Recorded 1979.

After leaving Herbie Hancock’s Mwandishi band trombonist Julian Priester and synthesizer pioneer Dr Patrick Gleeson put together this now-legendary album in two sessions in 1973. Extending the experiments of the Hancock sextet this music can also be related to Miles Davis’s robust Afro-funk-slanted electric group music of the period. Pumping bass ostinati, riffs and a big ‘tribal’ beat connect Love, Love to the music of Sly Stone and Funkadelic as well, while the shifting clouds of spacey improvising can also make a listener think of minimal music or Sun Ra. More than 40 years later this slice of proto-cyberfunk is still thoroughly enjoyable and timely.

CD ECM Records Gary Burton: The New Quartet


Gary Burton Vibraphone
Michael Goodrick Guitar
Abraham Laboriel Bass
Harry Blazer Drums

As well as being the great vibes innovator of the era, Gary Burton has been a most astute talent scout. In 1973, The New Quartet introduced Abraham Laboriel: this was the first recording of the bassist who would shortly become one of the most in-demand session players across all genres. “It must be emphasised that Laboriel sounds like a major artist in the making with his astonishing bass work,” wrote Melody Maker. Guitarist Mick Goodrick also emerged as a player to watch with this album, shining in a well-conceived programme with compositions of Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea, Carla Bley, Mike Gibbs and bandleader Burton.

CD ECM Records Keith Jarrett: Hymns / Spheres

In stoc


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.
