CD ECM Records Tord Gustavsen Quartet: The Well

2012

Tord Gustavsen - pian
Tore Brunborg - saxofon tenor
Mats Eilertsen - contrabas
Jarle Vespestad - tobe

After three close to perfect piano trio albums followed by a slightly more tentative ensemble-recording featuring the musicians of the present quartet (Tore Brunborg on reeds, Mats Eilertson on bass and Jarle Vespestad on drums) The Well synthesises composer Gustavsen's high seriousness and groovy, gospel-tinged vamps. 'Circling' is the track that really cooks, but it's all of a piece: stately lullaby-themes given rhythmic momentum by Vespestad's drum'n'bassy whispers. [ Phil Johnson, The Independent on Sunday ]

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 Tord Gustavsen Quartet: Extended Circle

2014

Tord Gustavsen - pian
Tore Brunborg - saxofon tenor
Mats Eilertsen - contrabas
Jarle Vespestad - tobe


Gustvasen’s quartet with Tore Brunborg, Mats Eilertsen and long-term associate Jarle Vespestad has matured into a group whose interactions draw strength from restraint, patiently building the music toward its climaxes.

CD ECM Records Tord Gustavsen Trio: The Other Side

2018
Tord Gustavsen - pian
Sigurd Hole - contrabas
Jarle Vespestad - tobe

“This is the chill-out as a state of grace, and it can go as deep as you like. Sublime,” wrote the Independent on Sunday of the Gustavsen’s trio’s Being There, released in 2007.

Over the last decade Tord has explored other ensemble forms and formats, but on The Other Side - recorded at Oslo’s Rainbow Studio in January 2018 – he opens a new chapter in his piano trio story, with faithful drummer Jarle Vespestad, and excellent new bassist Sigurd Hole. Hole’s approach to his instrument, drawing on folk influences as well as modern jazz, is ideally suited to Gustavsen’s slowly-developing, deeply melodic pieces. The album, produced by Manfred Eicher, is issued on the eve of a major tour.

CD ECM Records Carla Bley, Andy Sheppard, Steve Swallow: Trios

2013
Carla Bley - pian
Andy Sheppard - saxofoane
Steve Swallow - bas

‘Trios’ adheres to Bley’s vision in that the ideals frame the structures, offering opportunities for her ongtime collaborators, particularly tenor and soprano saxophonist Andy Sheppard, to shine. Bley’s plaing is beautifully evocative, and her interaction with bassist Steve swallow is effortless almost to the point of translucence. [...] The spiritual awareness that underlies much of Bley’s craft is always at hand as the trio explores these strange, haunting melodies with quiet awe. [ John Swenson, Stereophile ]

2016
Carla Bley - pian
Andy Sheppard - saxofoane
Steve Swallow - bas

Andando el Tiempo features new music of wide emotional compass by Carla Bley, and underlines her originality and resourcefulness as a jazz composer. “Saints Alive!” sets up animated conversations between the participants with striking statements from Steve Swallow’s bass guitar and Andy Sheppard’s soprano sax.

CD ECM Records Hilliard Ensemble - Tallis, Tye, Sheppard: Audivi Vocem

2008

David James - contratenor
Rogers Covey-Crump - tenor
Steven Harrold - tenor
Gordon Jones - bariton
Robert Macdonald - bas

The Hilliards here return to familiar territory with a programme of Tallis, Tye and Sheppard. While the territory may be familiar, however, not all of its landmarks are, and neither is their disposition – this is an extremely well organised disc. …
The music by Tye includes ‘Omnes gentes plaudite’, which may perhaps be considered relatively known, but the four sections of the ‘Missa sine nomine’ from the Peterhouse part-books will, I suspect, be unknown even to most connoisseurs of this period, precisely on account of the missing voice. I trust that these beautifully blended performances will help to change this state of affairs, for it is an extremely impressive work, heralding the new, compact and more declamatory style with consummate skill. An outstanding release. [ Ivan Moody, Gramophone ]

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 ]

1991

Steve Swallow - bas
Karen Mantler - orga
Victor Lewis - tobe
Don Alias - percutie

Five striking Bley compositions are featured here, including two extended works, 'United States' and 'All Fall Down'. The lasting impression is one of unusual voicings, adventurous soloists, unconventional arranging touches, and dissonant shadings. 'Delightfully quirky, chaotically dynamic, delicately impressionistic, buoyantly upbeat, and brashly bold.' - Downbeat

Appearing Nightly is the latest soulful big band effort from one of the wittiest composers in the genre. The album … retrofits an image of old-fashioned nightclub glamour with flickers of good-natured irony. [ Nate Chinen, The New York Times ]

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 Gary Peacock Trio: Now This

2015

Gary Peacock - contrabas
Marc Copland - pian
Joey Baron - tobe

In the realm of the piano trio the bar is set high, and creative bassist Gary Peacock has helped raise it in the groups of Bill Evans, Paul Bley and Keith Jarrett. Now This is an album with the bassist’s current trio, recorded last summer in Oslo. Powerful new versions of some Peacock classics – such as “Moor”, “Vignette”, “Requiem” and “Gaya” – are interspersed with recent compositions. Marc Copland and Joey Baron each contribute tunes, and the group also tackles Scott La Faro’s “Gloria’s Step”. In this band, roles are very evenly shared, and this is an optimum context in which to appreciate the melodic invention of Peacock’s bass playing. Marc Copland always honours the needs of the compositions and Joey Baron supplies both drive and sensitive detail. “Now This” is issued in time for Gary Peacock’s 80th birthday on May 12th.

CD ECM Records Dave Holland Quartet: Extensions

1989

Dave Holland - contrabas
Steve Coleman - saxofon alto
Kevin Eubanks - chitara electrica
Marvin Smitty Smith - tobe

If you’re like me, then you’re most familiar with this album’s rhythm section from The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. From 1995 to 2006, guitarist Kevin Eubanks and drummer Marvin “Smitty” Smith were the anchors for said program’s house band. I always knew that Eubanks was a talented musician but felt that his insights were often lost in the muddled acoustics of the NBC studio in which they were situated. These conditions also boded ill, in most cases, for the show’s musical acts. In addition, for the most part Eubanks had his distortion turned high in order to achieve a certain brand of punctuation in his bantering with Leno, but I sometimes noticed that when returning from a commercial break he would be finishing a smooth jazz number, the brilliance of which I could only guess at. It wasn’t until I heard Extensions that I realized just how deep that brilliance goes. [ ecmreviews ]

CD ECM Records Kenny Wheeler: Gnu High

1975

Kenny Wheeler - flugelhorn
Keith Jarrett - pian
Dave Holland - contrabas
Jack DeJohnette - tobe

Kenny Wheeler’s ECM debut cut against the grain of his previously avant-garde stylistics. Dispensing here with his trusty trumpet for fluegelhorn, Wheeler carved out a niche that still leaves room for no other. The heartening tone of “Heyoke” animates our very bodies with 22 minutes of bliss. After Wheeler’s prophetic intro, Jarrett is given free reign at the keyboard, uttering ecstatic cries as he threads through Holland’s solo while also buoying Wheeler’s instinctive pickups. “Smatter” injects this trio of compositions with a hefty dose of kinetic energy that is sustained by Wheeler’s fluid brass and the tireless volleys of Jarrett. Even as the latter takes his lone passage, one feels the energy lingering like a potential leap into flight. “Gnu Suite” begins smoothly before locking into a downtempo trajectory. An unrepeatable magic occurs as Holland’s magnetic solo opens into the wider ethereal territory of his bandmates’ consecutive reappearances. And as the voices realign themselves, we feel the release of arrival, of knowing that we’ve come home. [ ecmreviews ]

CD ECM Records Kenny Wheeler: Deer Wan

1976
Kenny Wheeler -trompeta, flugelhorn
Jan Garbarek - saxofoane
John Abercrombie - chitara si mandolina electrica
Dave Holland - contrabas
Jack DeJohnette - tobe
Ralph Towner - chitara double-six

The notoriously self-critical trumpeter Kenny Wheeler maintained that Deer Wan (recorded 1976) was his favourite among his own albums (“I like the overall form of this one best”). A tremendous band plays Wheeler’s tunes here. Kenny and Jan Garbarek sing together gloriously on the themes, and intermingle lines. The “Gateway” trio of John Abercrombie, Dave Holland and Jack DeJohnette drives the music with great verve. Guest Ralph Towner adds his distinctive 12-string guitar to a lilting Wheeler waltz.

CD ECM Records Jimmy Giuffre 3, 1961

1961

Jimmy Giuffre - saxofon tenor, clarinet
Paul Bley - pian
Steve Swallow - contrabas

Acest dublu album reprezinta reeditarea albumelor "Thesis" si "Fusion", inregistrate la Verve Records (remixate, remasterizate si cu cateva piese nepublicate anterior).

The music is Giuffre at his finest -- at that point, finding a language with his two collaborators, pianist Paul Bley and bassist Steve Swallow (who hadn't made the permanent switch to electric then) -- that was outside even the avant-garde at the time, yet in the tradition enough for some listeners and critics to be able to hold onto as modern jazz. Both recordings make use of a profound use of subtlety in gesture -- this is more true of Giuffre and Bley than Swallow, but without a drummer, the guy had a tough gig to hold down -- and a creative use of space, one that allowed for a free contrapuntal interplay between musicians while keeping their distance in order to keep the music in front of them. In other words, space was used as a way to communicate what not to do rather than what to play. [ AllMusic ]

CD ECM Records Bill Frisell / Thomas Moran: Small Town

2017 -
Bill Frisell - chitara electrica
Thomas Moran - contrabas

But, most importantly, Small Town represents the guitarist's first recorded encounter with Thomas Morgan in the intimate setting of a duo, the double bassist having first shown up on Frisell's film soundtrack homage, When You Wish Upon a Star (Okeh, 2016). As superb as When You Wish Upon a Star undeniably is, it's in the more naked, completely vulnerable environs of the duo—where the need for musical trust is, perhaps, at its most crucial—that the profound chemistry shared by these two thoroughly synchronized players becomes even clearer.

August 1984

Paul Motian - tobe

"This relatively early set from Bill Frisell is a fine showcase for the utterly unique guitarist. Frisell has the ability to play nearly any extroverted style of music and his humor (check out the date's "Music I Heard") is rarely far below the surface. [ AllMusic ]
