CD ECM Records Charlie Haden, Egberto Gismonti: In Montreal

1989
Charlie Haden - contrabas
Egberto Gismonti - chitara, pian

This live album is amazing in its scope, power and beauty. On guitar or piano, Gismonti often sounds as if he's playing two instruments at once, combining fierce rhythms with shapely melodies while Haden's warm, rich bass broadens the music with grainy texture and depth...Gismonti and Haden always add twists to the rhythms and angles to the melodies, making the music prismatic. [ Steve Israel, Times Herald Record ]

CD ECM Records Egberto Gismonti: Zig Zag

1996
Egberto Gismonti - chitara, pian
Nando Carneiro - chitara, sintetizator
Zeca Assumpcao - contrabas


'ZigZag' is the 14th Gismonti recording to be issued by ECM and features his touring band of Nando Carneiro, who doubles on guitar and synthesizer, and bassist Zeca Assumpacao.

The trio members have been friends since the 1970's and collaborated on many projects and tours both in South America and Europe. More than 20 years after his ECM debut, 'Dança das Cabeças', Gismonti remains a category unto himself. Born in the small Brazilian town of Carmo to a Lebanese father and a Sicilian mother, he grew up in an 'international' environment .

Beginning classical piano at the age of 5, his earliest yearnings were to play and compose music in the European tradition. At the age of 20 he went to Paris to study initially with composer Jean Barraqué and later with Nadia Boulanger. Whereas Barraqué passed on his enthusiasm for Debussy, Ravel and Stravinsky to the young Egberto, Boulanger sent the aspiring composer home to reacquaint himself with his Brazilian roots.

CD ECM Records Egberto Gismonti: Sol Do Meio Dia

1978
Egberto Gismonti -chitara, percutie, kalimba, fluier din lemn, voce
Nana Vasconcelos - percutie, berimbau, tama
Ralph Towner - chitara
Collin Walcott - tabla
Jan Garbarek - saxofon sopran

Inspired by his time spent with the Xingu Indians of the Amazon, to whom the album is also dedicated, Sol Do Meio Dia (Midday Sun) is a consistently intriguing transitional album from multi-instrumentalist Egberto Gismonti. With him are percussionists Nana Vasconcelos and Collin Walcott and guitarist Ralph Towner, as well as Jan Garbarek on soprano saxophone for a brief spell.

At this point in his career, Gismonti was beginning to fill in the porous sound of his 8-string guitar. To this end, Vasconcelos and Walcott flesh out much of the dizzying rhythmic space that defines his sound, while Towner’s 12-string laces the background with more explicit chording. Walcott traces magical circles in “Raga,” for which Gismonti engages us with nimble fingerwork on the guitar’s highest harmonics. Thus begins a chain of sporadic bursts acting in dialogue.

CD ECM Records Nik Bartsch's Ronin: Llyria

2010

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

Those who loved the spidery funk of Ronin's earliest releases Randori, Live, and Rea may initially be put off by the band's latest effort. Easily the "jazziest" Ronin disc to date, Llyria retains much of the precision of the band's previous output, and yet sounds ever so slightly more human than anything they've done before.

CD ECM Records Nik Bartsch's Ronin: Holon

2007

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

The second ECM album by Swiss composer-pianist Nik Bärtsch and his band Ronin reaps the benefits of the two years of roadwork undertaken since the recording of “Stoa” “We’ve simply played a lot more,” Bärtsch emphasises: “The development of the band as an organism is a very important force for the music. It is through playing that the pieces I write grow and bloom.”

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 Shankar: M.R.C.S.

1989
Shankar - vioara dubla
Zakir Hussain - tabla
Vikku Vinayakram - ghatam
Jon Christensen - tobe

Multi-instrumentalist L. Shankar’s fascinating evolution as a musician and composer took yet another intimate turn with M.R.C.S. Dedicated to Shankar’s father, V. Lakshminarayana, it also boasts master percussionists Zakir Hussain (tabla), Vikku Vinayakram (ghatam), and drummer Jon Christensen. The depths of the album’s experiences are forever aquatic, as in the opening “Adagio,” which floats Shankar’s double violin insights on a dark and winding current. Filmic and vivid, its gauche stretches a fine canvas for the pigments that follow.

“All I Care” marries the rhythmic edge of “March” (an interlude from Christensen) with Shankar’s cosmic pizzicato and gossamer comet trails, the latter reaching glorious improvisational heights that can only end in fadeout, lest their perpetuity be harmed. The music travels away from us, ever tuneful, into the tabla-infused “Reasons.” Here, Hussain trail-marks a scurrying snare, backing more winged artistry from the leader.

CD ECM Records Shankar: Vision

1984
Shankar - vioara dubla, percutie
Jan Garbarek - saxofon sopran, tenor si bas, percutie
Palle Mikkelborg - trompeta, flugelhorn

Estul se intalneste cu vestul - Lakshminarayana Shankar a mai colaborat cu John McLaughlin in Shakti si cu Frank Zappa. Frate al cunoscutului violonist L. Subramanian, Shankar a realizat mai multe albume pentru ECM Records, unele cu muzica clasica indiana si altele de fuziune cu muzicieni nordici.

One need only follow the pizzicato footsteps of “All For You” to get acquainted with the album’s beauties and to feel the shadows of Garbarek and Mikkelborg flying overhead. With this exuberant awakening still echoing inside us, we can only close our eyes in the title track.

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.

CD ECM Records Pat Metheny: 80/81

1980

Pat Metheny - chitara acustica si electrica
Charlie Haden - contrabas
Jack DeJohnette - tobe
Dewey Redman - saxofon tenor
Michael Brecker - saxofon tenor

AllMusicGuide : "Pat Metheny's credibility with the jazz community went way up with the release of this package, a superb two-CD collaboration with a quartet of outstanding jazz musicians that dared to be uncompromising at a time when most artists would have merely continued pursuing their electric commercial successes. [...]

The two original LPs were organized so that the more distinctive Metheny fusions were on sides one and four and the overt jazz tracks occupied sides two and three."

CD ECM Records Pat Metheny Group: Travels

1982.

Pat Metheny - chitara acustica si electrica
Lyle Mays - pian, sintetizatoare, Synclavier
Steve Rodby - bas
Dan Gottlieb - tobe
Nana Vasconcelos - percutie, voce, berimbau

AllMusicGuide: "Now well into its gliding Brazilian-tinged mode, the Pat Metheny Group hits the road, as this two-CD set catches the band live in Dallas, Philadelphia, Hartford, Sacramento, and Nacogdoches, TX.

Percussionist Nana Vasconcelos is still listed as a "special guest," but ever since Wichita Falls, he had not only been a part of the group, he was the transforming element in the Metheny "sound," adding his various shakers, effects and ethereal vocals.

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.

1981

Pat Metheny - chitara electrica si acustica
Lyle Mays - claviaturi, Synclavier
Steve Rodby - bas
Nana Vasconcelos - percutie, berimbau, voce
Dan Gottlieb - tobe

AllMusic : "If 1980's As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls was defined by Pat Metheny's charisma, its less accessible but certainly rewarding successor, Offramp, finds him leaning more toward the abstract. But as cerebral as Metheny gets on such atmospheric pieces as "Are You Going with Me?" and "Au Lait," his playing remains decidedly lyrical and melodic. Clearly influenced by Jim Hall, the thoughtful Metheny makes excellent use of space, choosing his notes wisely and reminding listeners that, while he has heavy-duty chops, he's not one to beat everybody over the head with them. Even when he picks up the tempo for the difficult and angular title song, he shuns empty musical acrobatics.

CD ECM Records Pat Metheny Group: American Garage

1979

Pat Metheny - chitara electrica si acustica
Lyle Mays - claviaturi
Mark Egan - bas
Dan Gottlieb - tobe

AllMusic: " The back liner photo gives the impression of a grungy Midwestern garage band, but no, that doesn't describe this sophisticated jazz-rock quartet, which was simultaneously breaking into mass-market acceptance and away from the contemplative ECM stereotype. The arrangements are more structured, the playing often more intense and searching, with a more pronounced rock influence.

CD ECM Records Pat Metheny Group: First Circle

1984

Pat Metheny - chitara electrica si acustica, Synclavier
Lyle Mays - instrumente cu claviaturi, sintetizatoare, trompeta
Steve Rodby - bas
Pedro Aznar - chitara, percutie, voce
Paul Wertico - tobe

AllMusic: " In First Circle, the Pat Metheny Group settled into a lineup that lasted for quite a while -- with Metheny, keyboardist Lyle Mays, bassist Steve Rodby, and new drummer Paul Wertico forming the core quartet. The ever-restless Metheny also mixes up the music, not quite leaving the Brazilian glide behind but coming up with some fascinating permutations always affixed with his personal stamp. "Forward March," the album opener, is a bizarre parody full of detuned instruments and half-cocked trumpet from Mays; one wonders if this was directed at a few silly skirmishes of the day (Grenada? the Falklands?).

CD ECM Records Pat Metheny: New Chautauqua

1978

Pat Metheny - chitara electrica si acustica, chitara harpa cu 15 corzi, bas electric

AllMusic: "When Pat Metheny's New Chautauqua first appeared in 1979, it was his third album for ECM, and was greeted mainly on the strength of its title track, a euphoric, uptempo, multi-layered guitar and bass folk dance. His previous two outings for the label, Bright Size Life and Watercolors, showcased him in the company of other musicians: on the former with Bob Moses and Jaco Pastorius, on the latter with Lyle Mays, Danny Gottlieb, and Eberhard Weber.

CD ECM Records Pat Metheny, Charlie Haden, Billy Higgins: Rejoicing

1984
Pat Metheny - chitara

Allmusic:
"Pat Metheny takes a vacation from his Group and performs advanced material with bassist Charlie Haden and drummer Billy Higgins. In addition to Horace Silver's "Lonely Woman," Haden's "Blues for Pat," and three Ornette Coleman tunes, the guitarist plays three of his originals here, including "The Calling," a lengthy exploration of sounds with his guitar synthesizer.

Throughout this excellent set, Metheny and his sidemen engage in close communication and create memorable and unpredictable music. "
