CD ECM Records Jan Garbarek, Miroslav Vitous, Peter Erskine: Star

1991
Jan Garbarek - saxofoane
Miroslav Vitous - contrabas
Peter Erskine - tobe

ecmreviews.com:
"StAR is yet another classic from a fertile period for Jan Garbarek. Clothed in some of Barbara Wojirsch’s most striking typography, it holds an intimate portrait of one of ECM’s profoundest artists.

Characteristic trails fade in the title track like infant spiders’ webs as bassist Miroslav Vitous dances a solemn dance. Garbarek unlocks a doorway in the sky, where the only keyhole is a star, before teleporting back to earth to find his roots in “Jumper.”

CD ECM Records Tord Gustavsen Trio: Being There

2007

Tord Gustavsen - pian
Harald Johnson - contrabas
Jarle Vespestad - tobe

Gustavsen’s tunes are hypnotically strong, and the integration of bass and drums in his regular trio is total. … It’s possible for even hardcore jazzers to get the point about Tord Gustavsen. This one just did. [ John Fordham, The Guardian ]

CD ECM Records Tord Gustavsen Trio: Changing Places

2003

Tord Gustavsen - pian
Harald Johnsen - contrabas
Jarle Vespestad - tobe

Changing Places is an unusual achievement … Technical display is at a premium, and the compositions, all by the leader, are beguiling simple and intensely melodic. [ Andy Hamilton, Jazz Review ]

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.

Andy Sheppard - saxofoane

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: Surrounded By Sea

2015
Andy Sheppard - saxofoane
Eivind Aarset - chitara
Michel Benita - contrabas
Sebastian Rochford - tobe

Extending the range of his widely-praised Trio Libero project with Michel Benita and Seb Rochford, Andy Sheppard adds Eivind Aarset (who made significant contributions to 2008’s Movements In Colour) to the band. With Aarset’s ambient drones and electronic textures as a backdrop, Sheppard and co seem to have even more space to explore.

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 ]

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 / Marilyn Crispell: Azure

2011

Gary Peacock - contrabas
Marilyn Crispell - pian

“Azure” features beautiful duets by two great improvisers whose compatibility was proven long ago. Gary Peacock and Marilyn Crispell made outstanding music together in Marilyn’s trio with the late Paul Motian, on ECM albums including “Nothing ever was, anyway” and “Amaryllis”, but their duo project also has an extensive history, until now undocumented on disc.

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: Tangents

2017

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

Some of Gary Peacock’s finest music has been made in piano trios. Early in his musical life, Peacock established a fresh role for the bass as an independent melodic voice, a concept carried forward in the history-making groups he’s played with – from Paul Bley’s Bill Evans’s trios to Keith Jarrett’s. As a bandleader he has also been influential: Tangents is the second release from the great bassist’s trio with Marc Copland and Joey Baron and draws on years of shared playing in diverse contexts. All three band members contribute compositions, Peacock’s including “December Greenwings”, revisiting a piece Gary introduced on his ECM recording December Poems. Repertoire includes five tunes from Peacock, two from Baron, one from Copland, and an outstanding group improvisation, “Empty Forest”. The trio also plays Miles Davis’s “Blue In Green” and, perhaps surprisingly, Alex North’s theme for the film Spartacus, which also proves a fine vehicle for improvising.

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 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 Kenny Wheeler: Songs For Quintet

2013

Kenny Wheeler - fluegelhorn
Stan Sulzmann - saxofon tenor
John Parricelli - chitara
Chris Laurence - contrabas
Martin France - tobe

AllMusic:
"Recorded nine months prior to his death in September 2014, Kenny Wheeler's Songs for Quintet is the acclaimed jazz trumpeter's last studio album. Produced by ECM's Manfred Eicher at London's Abbey Road Studios with a handful of Wheeler's closest musical associates, Songs for Quintet is an intimate, lyrical session that exemplifies all that made Wheeler such a distinctive voice in jazz.

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 ]
