CD ECM Records Chris Potter: The Sirens

2013

Chris Potter - saxofon tenor si sopran, bas clarinet
Craig Taborn - pian
David Virelles - pian preparat, Celeste, Harmonium
Larry Grenadier - contrabas
Eric Harland - tobe

“The Sirens” is acclaimed saxophonist Chris Potter’s ECM debut as a leader, an album of mood and melody inspired by The Odyssey – both its epic atmosphere and its timeless humanity. Potter – who has featured on many ECM albums by Dave Holland and Steve Swallow, as well as making a profound contribution to the contemporary classic “Lost in a Dream” with Paul Motian and Jason Moran – has composed a cycle of irresistible songs without words.

CD ECM Records Chris Potter Underground Orchestra: Imaginary Cities

2013

Chris Potter Underground Orchestra : Chris Potter, Adam Rogers, Craig Taborn, Steve Nelson, Fima Ephron, Scott Colley, Nate Smith, Mark Feldman, Joyce Hammann, Lois Martin, David Eggar


The world-class contemporary sax-colossus Chris Potter seems to be something of a late bloomer in terms of his recordings as a leader […] the elegant arrangements and ensemble performances are first rate and it slowly reveals more layers on repeated listening.

CD ECM Records Bjorn Meyer: Provenance

2017
Bjorn Meyer - bas electric si acustic

There is a distinguished tradition of solo bass albums on ECM, but Provenance is the first to be devoted to the electric bass guitar. Björn Meyer, Swedish-born and Swiss-based, has shaped a unique voice for his instrument inside the most diverse contexts, working alongside Persian harpist and singer Asita Hamidi, Swedish nyckelharpa player Johan Hedin, and Tunisian oud master Anouar Brahem.

CD ECM Records Stephan Micus: Garden Of Mirrors

1997

Stephan Micus - Voice, Bolombatto, Steel Drums, Sinding, Bowed Sinding, Suling, Percussion, Shakuhachi, Nay, Tin Whistle

This extraordinary multi-instrumentalist is actually one of the few to have grasped in its essence what was the song of the world. With him there exist no territories or cultural atavisms, but a planetary polyphony projected on a horizon of eternity.His instruments exchange once more the out-lines of their countries of origin to become instruments without nationality in the hands of this nomad musician. Exceptional.
Keyboards, France

Micus's music possesses gossamer beauty. Timeless, magical music with a universal appeal.

CD ECM Records Stephan Micus: Nomad Songs

2015

Stephan Micus - Ndingo, Genbri, Steel-String Guitar, Suling, Voice, Nay, Rewab, Rabab, Twelve-String Guitar, Fourteen-String Guitar, Tin Whistle, Shakuhachi

German born Stephan Micus is quite simply one of the most intriguing musicians in music. The multi-instrumentalist has over the course of many decades, concocted his own dialect playing instruments from cultures he has studied across the world. Micus’ albums generally take a few years to create as he builds layer upon layer of instrumentation, crafting each album with a particular theme in mind […] Micus’ twenty first ECM album “Nomad Songs” reflects in some respects cultures that have been uprooted from their traditions, have lived in peace and harmony wandering the land and due to factors beyond their control have had to adapt and relinquish their lifestyles as nomads. He integrates these new instruments into a palette as a pan cultural stew that musically represents harmony from seemingly disparate elements. […] This world melange takes the listener to many established places and even imagined ones, from the mind of one of the most captivating musicians around. The listener is taken on their own nomadic journey, and no matter where it brings them, the depth will reveal something different each time. [ CJ Shearn, Blueceej.com ]

CD ECM Records Stephan Micus: Towards The Wind

2002

Stephan Micus - Bass Duduk, Kalimba, Steel-String Guitar, Shakuhachi, Dondon, Duduk, Sattar, 14-String Guitar, Voice

“Towards The Wind”, the 15th ECM recording by the perennially popular world-traveller and multi-instrumentalist, features his debut performances on the Armenian duduk, that exceptionally expressive forerunner of the oboe and the clarinet. Stephan Micus was inspired by recordings of the great duduk virtuoso Jivan Gasparian and was able to study with Armenia’s greatest folk musician in Yerevan in the autumn of 1999. Gasparian passed along to him some of the instrument’s secrets, the ways in which its wealth of textures and sounds can be annexed.

CD ECM Records Stephan Micus: Desert Poems

2001

Stephan Micus - Sarangi, Dondon, Voice, Dilruba, Doussn' Gouni, Kalimba, Sinding, Steel Drum, Percussion, Shakuhachi, Nay, Sattar, Flowerpots

Micus expands his already broad musical horizons on Desert Poems, his 15th solo project, which he recorded between 1997 and 2000 in his studio on the Mediterranean island of Mallorca. Among the 'firsts' on Desert Poems are Micus's recorded debuts playing three African instruments - the doussn' gouni, (a West African harp), the kalimba (a Tanzanian thumb piano) and the dondon (a talking drum from Ghana); his singing in English (a haunting solo a cappella performance called 'Contessa Entellina' and on 'For Yuko', dedicated to his daughter) and an instrumental arrangement of 'Shen Khar Venakhi', a 13th century polyphonic choral piece from Georgia, which is the only work Micus did not compose to appear in his discography to date.

CD ECM Records Stephan Micus: Life

2004

Stephan Micus - Bagana, Tibetan Chimes, Kyeezee, Sho, Voice, Maung, Tin Whistle, Bavarian Zither, Thai Singing Bowl, Dilruba, Nay, Bagana, Tibetan Cymbals, Dondon, Bowed Bagana, Balinese Gongs, Burmese Gongs


Both a continuation and a departure from earlier work, “Life” sets to music an old Zen koan, or teaching story, on “the meaning of life”. Stephan Micus sings the text in Japanese and embodies the koan’s multi-layered meanings in his composition, scored for a characteristically wide range of ethnic/traditional instruments – from the Ethiopian bagana to the Irish tin whistle.

CD ECM Records Stephan Micus: Panagia

2013

Stephan Micus - Bavarian Zither, Tibetan Chimes, Burmese Temple Bells, Zanskari Horsebells, Chitrali Sitar, 14-String Guitar, Chinese Gongs, Dilruba, Sattar, Nay, Voice

Stephan Micus’ album takes six Byzantine Greek prayers and sets them in his own inimitable way with instruments he has collected in years of travels round the world. “The prayers are to the Virgin Mary,” says Micus, “but I also see this as a more universal work. It is not only Christian and dedicated to the Virgin Mary, but to the female energy that is everywhere in the world. The Chinese have this concept of yin and yang, and keeping the balance between them, which is very important to me. In our time, the male energy has become too overbearing, but in ancient times the gods were predominantly female. In the last 2000 years, the three monotheistic religions have over-emphasised the male aspect. I see this album as a small contribution to changing that status quo.”

CD ECM Records Stephan Micus: On The Wing

2006

Stephan Micus - Satara, Guitar, Nay, Suling, Cymbals, Gong, Shakuhachi, Sitar

“On the Wing” is Stephan Micus’s first album without voice since 1990 and in contrast to “Life” (2004) in which he set to music a Japanese Zen Koan this album is not built around a “libretto”. Although the titles of the individual pieces convey the musician’s close affinity to nature they are associative rather than descriptive. Nevertheless, the album is conceived as an entity. “For me this is like a journey or a story: the start of a movement that is transformed in many ways and eventually comes to an end”, says Micus of his ten-part suite. The first four pieces, for example, prepare for the large ensemble of the fifth, “The Bride”, which takes a central position also due to its ceremonial character.

CD ECM Records Stephan Micus: Athos - A Journey To The Holy Mountain

1994

Stephan Micus - Bavarian Zither, Sattar, Shakuhachi, Suling, Flowerpots, Nay, Voice

If true meditation is not a centering but a shedding of the self into a plane where the ego no longer speaks under the illusion of a proper name, then Stephan Micus has walked some of the most meditative paths on disc. Inspired by a visit to the holy Greek mountain of Athos, his album of the same name bears traces of just such a traveler, one whose artistry sees medium and message as one. Those looking for anything close to the Byzantine chant that surely nourished his ears during this pilgrimage may feel disappointed. Then again, the Micus experience has never been about total re-creation, but rather about the ways in which the lens of his soul refracts all it comes in contact with during its itinerancy.

CD ECM Records Stephan Micus: Snow

2008

Stephan Micus - Doussn' Gouni, Duduk, Maung, Gongs, Tibetan Cymbals, Bavarian Zither, Sinding, Steel-String Guitar, Hammered Dulcimer, Charango, Nay, Bass Duduk, Voice

'Snow' is the title Stephan Micus has given to his 18th album for ECM. It is the outcome of continuous work he has carried out on journeys and in the studio since the release of his 'On the Wing' in early spring 2006. 'To me, snow is one of the most beautiful of all natural phenomena', explains Micus, who has been living in Spain for many years. 'It’s closely associated with lasting impressions of my original home in Bavaria, especially the long moonlit walks I used to take when I lived in the Alpine foothills. I've always regarded snow as the essence of magic, even more so today now that there's so little of it and the glaciers are disappearing.' Micus's music has always drawn on impressions of nature and the countryside. The inspiration for his new album came largely from a long study tour through Armenia, Nagorno-Karabakh and the mountains of the Caucasus. He travelled through these distant and extremely isolated regions partly by Jeep, partly on extended trips by foot. He met people from many walks of life and became acquainted with their living conditions and musical traditions.

CD ECM Records Stephan Micus: Bold As Light

2010

Stephan Micus - Raj Nplaim, Bass Zither, Chord Zither, Bavarian Zither, Nohkan, Sho, Voice, Kalimba, Shakuhachi, Sinding

“The idea of sitting down at a table and making a composition on paper is totally foreign to me. To come up with a piece of music, I have to make the sound myself, have the instruments in my hands.”

Micus’ three main sound protagonists in “Bold As Light” are the raj nplaim (a free-reed pipe made of bamboo) from Laos, the nohkan (a bamboo flute) from Japan, and the many male voices, which, of course, are all sung by Micus himself. He drew inspiration for the multipart vocals from the intriguing polyphonic singing of Georgia and Bulgaria, which since the early Middle Ages has shaped the style of everyday singing as well as the liturgy of the Orthodox Church. On the very last track, the interwoven vocals make way for the Japanese shō (mouth organ), thus joining different aural worlds in a total sound whose divergent timbres have surprisingly much in common.

CD ECM Records Gianluigi Trovesi All' Opera: Parfumo Di Violetta

2008

Gianluigi Trovesi - saxofon alto, clarinet
Marco Remondini - violoncel, electronice
Stefano Bertoli - tobe, percutie
Filarmonica Mousiké , dirijor Savino Acquaviva
Fabio Brignoli - flugelhorn

Gianluigi Trovesi, wild-haired Italian jazz clarinettist, creates a turbo-charged version of a traditional Italian town band to play a medley of quirkily arranged Italian opera tunes. It includes some of Rossini’s and Verdi’s greatest hits, garlanded with Trovesi’s husky solos, plus foot-tapping Baroque dances. It’s funny, sentimental and charming.

CD ECM Records Gianluigi Trovesi, Umberto Petrin, Fulvio Maras: Vaghissimo Ritratto

2007

Gianluigi Trovesi - clarinet alto
Umberto Petrin - pian
Fulvio Maras - percutie, electronice

Piatti is the unifying element of a project celebrating four centuries of western melody, but he is a wraith mostly out of earshot, his themes sometimes barely touched, sometimes explicit, within rolling jazzy dialogues or free-playing. The title track, framing Trovesi’s mellow tone within gurgly electronics and soft piano interjections, comes closest to contemporary jazz. … It’s the kind of quirkily virtuosic ECM venture that changes hues with successive listening.

CD ECM Records Anat Fort Trio: And If

2007

Anat Fort - pian
Gary Wang - contrabas
Roland Schneider - tobe

Delicate, slow stuff, and pretty darn Keith Jarrett-y – especially the childlike, folky quality – but there’s something warm and luxuriant in Fort’s minimalist approach. “Minnesota” feels like watching the sky open to a dawn visity, each moment registered with wonder; her second take on “Paul Motian” caught the soft-petal poetry of that journeying drummer well. [ Paul de Barros, DownBeat ]

This is an intellectually satisfying yet emotionally charged CD, the sounds of which echo in the memory long after the disc has stopped spinning. [ Hrayr Attarian, All About Jazz ]

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: Tribe

2010

Enrico Rava - trompeta
Gianluca Petrella - trombon
Giovanni Guidi - pian
Gabriele Evangelista - contrabas
Fabrizio Sferra - tobe
Giacomo Ancillotto - chitara

Voted Rising Star Trombonist in the Down Beat Critics Poll of 2005, he has a front-line relationship with Rava which recalls Enrico’s affinity with Roswell Rudd back in the heyday of the New Thing. Fast-moving, quick-witted exchanges abound. Enrico has always encouraged younger musicians, and pianist Giovanni Guidi (born 1985) is a real find, a player of creativity and imagination: “When I notice the gifts of a young musician, I immediately involve him in my groups. This is not motivated by altruism,” Rava insists. “Giovanni Guidi is like Bollani and Petrella: he astounds me every time.”

The Italian trumpeter’s ECM debut with a band featuring John Abercrombie, Palle Danielsson and Jon Christensen. Rava’s evocative compositions, including the meanwhile classic ballad “Blancasnow”, inspire strong solos and spirited interaction.

CD ECM Records Enrico Rava Quartet, Gianluca Petrella: Wild Dance

2015

Enrico Rava - trompeta
Gabriele Evangelista - contrabas
Enrico Morello - tobe
Gianluca Petrella - trombon

Enrico Rava, the great Italian jazz trumpeter, sifted through avant-swing, improv and experimental crossovers for years, then discovered Michael Jackson in his 70s, and devoted an utterly personal tribute album to him in the company of younger partners. ‘Wild Dance’ is similarly cross-generational, with an expanded Rava road band, fronted for the occasion by the leader’s trumpet paired with the trombone of Gianluca Petrella, a supple maestro of voicelike long tones, bebop intricacies and inbuilt swing. Rava’s Miles-inspired lyricism and tone control on slow music often takes centre stage in his work, but […] the blurted Ornette Coleman-like flurries of ‘Infant’ or ‘Happy Shades’, the guitar-driven swinger ‘Cornette’, or the soft bop ‘F Express’, over the excellent Enrico Morello’s bustling brushwork, represent effortlessly inventive uptempo jazz playing. [ John Fordham, The Guardian ]
