CD ECM Records John Abercrombie / Dave Holland / Jack DeJohnette: Gateway 2

1977
Gateway:
John Abercrombie - chitara, mandolina electrica
Dave Holland - contrabas
Jack DeJohnette - tobe, pian

In this era of tawdry sequels, it’s almost difficult to believe that John Abercrombie, Dave Holland, and Jack DeJohnette could have surpassed the profundity of 1975’s seminal Gateway. I say “almost” only because each member of this dream trio has yet to let this committed listener down and always comes to the studio bearing a basket overflowing with fresh ideas. Not only do the results of this 1978 follow-up not disappoint, they ascend into their own category. [ ecmreviews ]

CD ECM Records John Abercrombie / Dave Holland / Jack DeJohnette: Gateway - Homecoming

1995
Gateway:
John Abercrombie - chitara electrica
Dave Holland - contrabas
Jack DeJohnette - tobe, pian

The title track reunited more than one of the finest groups of the seventies, bringing together also the many emotional souvenirs each performer had gathered along the way. The joy in every lick and tumble is in full evidence.

DeJohnette is aflame, Abercrombie following his trail of embers with laser precision and shaving off an twist of lime for his solo, while Holland (who penned this and three other of the album’s nine tunes) is at his buoyant best. His montuno-flavored “Modern Times” and “How’s Never” throw open the doors for both of his bandmates, but especially for DeJohnette in the latter. [ ecm reviews ]

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.

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.

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.

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: 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: Ocean

1986

Stephan Micus - Voice, Hammered Dulcimers, Nay, Sho, Shakuhachi, Bavarian Zithers

Ocean is a set of acoustic ambient performances from Stephan Micus. He uses exotic instruments and techniques that give this disc electronic timbre. He combines hammered dulcimers, sho, a shakuhachi, a ney, zithers, and vocals in a swirling sound design that absolutely shimmers. The natural sonorities of these devices create vast atmospheres with organic timbres. The soundscapes penetrate and enhance brainwave activity. This great CD will appeal to fans of Robert Rich, Klaus Wiese, and Riley Lee. [ AllMusic ]

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.

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: 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.

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.

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 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.”

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.”

CD ECM Records Enrico Rava: New York Days

2008

Enrico Rava - trompeta
Stefano Bollani - pian
Mark Turner - saxofon tenor
Larry Grenadier - contrabas
Paul Motian - tobe

In assessing Enrico Rava's lengthy career, while it is clear that he is still reaching for the unattainable, in recent years the Italian trumpeter's context has been considerably more centrist. Easy Living (ECM, 2004) and The Words and the Days (ECM, 2007) were undeniably mainstream, albeit with an unmistakable European and, at times, Mediterranean bent. New York Days teams Rava and pianist Stefano Bollani—last heard in duet on the marvelous The Third Man (ECM, 2008)—together with perennially underrated tenor saxophonist Mark Turner, increasingly ubiquitous bassist FLY and drum icon Paul Motian for a set of nine originals and two free improvisations that, like The Third Man combine innate lyricism and swing with some of Rava's freest playing in years.

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.
