CD ECM Records Tomasz Stanko: From The Green Hill

1999

Tomasz Stanko - trompeta
John Surman - saxofon bariton, bas clarinet
Dino Saluzzi - bandoneon
Michelle Makarski - vioara
Anders Jormin - contrabas
Jon Christensen - tobe



After his critical and popular success with Litania, revitalizing the music of his countryman Komeda, Poland's Stanko, possessor of perhaps the darkest trumpet sound in jazz, resurfaces here in quite a different context, with associates from everywhere. Bandeonista from Argentina, reedman from England's south coast, classical violinist from Detroit, bassist from Sweden. Only veteran Norwegian drummer Jon Christensen is retained from the Litania session, although a sense of continuity is maintained by Saulzzi, who brings a wistful regret to his interpretation of a Komeda theme. Otherwise Stanko and John Surman share composer credits as well as the special understanding that belongs only to the most lyrical improvisers.

CD ECM Records Tomasz Stanko Quartet: Matka Joanna

1995

Tomasz Stanko - trompeta
Bobo Stenson - pian
Anders Jormin - contrabas
Tony Oxley - tobe


Backed by pianist Bobo Stenson, bassist Anders Jormin, and drummer Tony Oxley (in a decidedly Christensenian mode), Stanko brings his pungent lyricism to bear across a swath of mountains and shadows that inhales cobwebs from a “Monastery In The Dark” and exhales the mummified sermons of its “Klostergeist.” Within those lungs mingle forgotten bells, vibrating between prayer and dreams, and chains of latent virtues. Jormin’s bass squeaks like a family of mice in the walls, Stenson the cat stalking them from every alcove. [ ecm reviews ]

CD ECM Records Tomasz Stanko Quintet: Dark Eyes

2009

Tomasz Stanko - trompeta
Alexi Tuomarila - pian
Jakob Bro - chitara
Anders Christensen - contrabas
Olavi Louhivuori - tobe

Stanko likes to draw his inspirations from various artistic corners. And that is good to know. But one can just listen to this storyteller and imagine his or her own fantasy, draw from this music what one would like that relates to their own life or lives. It is a continuing marvel to realize how this veteran of the European jazz scene keeps coming up with new players to help him realize his evocative and truly different musical visions, visions that combine the freewheeling jazz aesthetic with his more composerly, mysterious elements of composition.

CD ECM Records Sam Rivers: Contrasts

1979

Sam Rivers - saxofon tenor si sopran, flaut
George Lewis - trombon
Dave Holland - contrabas
Thurman Barker - tobe

AllMusic: "Tenor saxophonist Sam Rivers (also heard on soprano and flute) teams up in a quartet with trombonist George Lewis, bassist Dave Holland and drummer Thurman Barker (doubling on marimba) for a date that certainly defies the stereotype of a typical ECM session. The seven Rivers originals, although sometimes having colorful melodies, are quite complex. However, the intriguing and very alert interplay between the brilliant musicians makes the music seem fairly logical and worth exploring by adventurous listeners. "

CD ECM Records Gary Burton: Seven Songs For Quartet & Chamber Orchestra

1973

Gary Burton - vibrafon
Michael Goodrick - chitara
Steve Swallow - bas
Ted Seibs - tobe

ecmreviews:
"If one were to draw a line between the ensemble aesthetics of Eberhard Weber and Keith Jarrett, then one might plot the compositions of orchestral jazz legend Mike Gibbs somewhere along the way. Born in 1937 in what was then Southern Rhodesia, and a graduate of Boston’s Berklee College of Music, Gibbs has laid down a musical path as diverse as his travels. On Seven Songs for Chamber Orchestra, one gains vision of a mind looking not so much to cross over into uncharted waters as to expand the inclusivity of jazz’s already broad topography. At the heart of this project is Gibbs’s most famous student, the inimitable Gary Burton, who presents a lovingly realized program of his mentor’s own design.

CD ECM Records Stefano Battaglia Trio: Songways

2013

Stefano Battaglia - pian
Salvatore Maiore - contrabas
Roberto Dani - tobe

Italian pianist Stefano Battaglia and his trio develop directions established on their acclaimed 2011 release “The River of Anyder” with a new selection of chants, hymns and dances, all written by Battaglia and inspired by descriptions of visionary places from art and literature – from Alfred Kubin, Jonathan Swift or Charles Fourier to Italo Calvino. “Songways” finds “a new harmonic balance between archaic modal pre-tonal chant and dances, pure tonal songs and hymns and abstract texture,” Battgalia says, “thus documenting the natural development of the Trio life, with a larger space for action from the drums”.

CD ECM Records Stefano Battaglia Trio: In The Morning - Music Of Alec Wilder

2015

Stefano Battaglia - pian
Salvatore Maiore - contrabas
Roberto Dani - tobe

Piano trios are becoming something of a speciality within the Italian jazz fraternity and now reaching the venerable age of fifty, leader and pianist Stefano Battaglia demonstrates why he is one of the leading exponents in both his country and on the European continent with this live recording from the Teatro Vittoria in Turin in April 2014. […] Battaglia is very much his own man and devotes the album to an exploration of one of the major, yet lesser known composers of what has become known as the great American songbook in Alec Wilder […] once again an ECM recording of distinction with impeccable sound as ever.

CD ECM Records Stefano Battaglia: Pelagos

2017

Stefano Battaglia - pian


Without exception, he approaches each piece reverentially, coaxing out its harmonies with classical precision. His is an undemonstrative style of playing, with rarely any flourish or excess but with considerable hypnotic allure, and in places, great beauty. [ Simon Adams, Jazz Journal ]

CD ECM Records Harrison Birtwistle: Chamber Music

2014

Amy Freston - soprana
Roderick Williams - bariton
Lisa Batiashvili - vioara
Adrian Brendel - violoncel
Till Fellner - pian

Whatever the medium and the accretions of tradition you might expect a composer of Birtwistle’s independence of mind to react against - in composing a piano trio, for example – he finds something fresh to say and an accommodation for his intensely personal vision of the world. […] Roderick Williams is very fine in ‘Bogenstrich’ and the three instrumentalists, quite closely recorded, are in a class any composer would die for.

2018

Till Fellner - pian

Franz Liszt - Années de pèlerinage, Première année - Suisse
Ludwig van Beethoven - Sonata No. 32 in c minor op. 111

Speaking to the New York Times in 2007, Alfred Brendel said of fellow pianist Till Fellner: “It has impressed me how ambitiously he has developed his repertory, being equally at home in solo and concerto repertoire, chamber music and lieder… I heard him do the best live performance of Liszt’s Années de pèlerinage”. Fellner’s insightful playing of the Premiere année from that collection of suites, underlines the contention, vividly conveying Franz Liszt’s literal and imaginative journeys.

CD ECM Records Andrew Cyrille, Wadada Leo Smith, Bill Frisell: Lebroba

2018

Andrew Cyrille - tobe
Wadada Leo Smith - trompeta
Bill Frisell - chitara electrica

Andrew Cyrille’s title Lebroba is a contraction of Leland, Brooklyn and Baltimore, birthplaces of the protagonists of an album bringing together three of creative music’s independent thinkers.

A generous leader, Cyrille gives plenty of room to his cohorts, and all three musicians bring in compositions, with “Turiya”, Wadada’s elegant dedication to Alice Coltrane, unfurling slowly over its 17-minute duration. In his own pieces, including the title track and the closing “Pretty Beauty”, Cyrille rarely puts the focus on the drums, preferring to play melodically and interactively, sensitive to pitch and to space. There are references to West African music and the blues as well as the history of jazz drumming, but Cyrille’s priority today is an elliptical style in which meter is implied rather than stated.

CD ECM Records Ben Monder, Pete Rende, Andrew Cyrille, Paul Motian: Amorphae

2016

Ben Monder - chitara electrica
Pete Rende - sintetizator
Andrew Cyrille - tobe
Paul Motian - tobe

Ben Monder may be the most listened to jazz guitarist at the moment, thanks to his being on David Bowie’s swansong, ‘Blackstar’. […] It’s clear here why Monder’s playing appealed to Bowie: he uses his electric guitar to create otherworldly, sometimes disturbing, soundscapes, some of which even have sci-fi titles such as ‘Gamma Crucis’ and ‘Triffids’. What melody there is serves as a basis for free improvisation, heavy on the reverb. It has the intensity of hard rock, yet the mood is ponderous, abstract and hazy. [ Chris Pearson, The Times ]

CD ECM Records Steve Swallow Quintet: Into The Woodwork

2012

Steve Swallow - bas
Chris Cheek - saxofon tenor
Steve Cardenas - chitara
Carla Bley - orga
Jorge Rossy - tobe



In the press sheet for Steve Swallow's Into the Woodwork, the award-winning electric bassist is quoted, saying: "Good humor before and after the red light goes on is very important. Music-making should be fun, after all." [...]

Into the Woodwork may lack the visuals, but it's clear that this quintet is having just as much fun, and is comfortable enough together to allow anything to happen—albeit within the structures of Swallow's writing. Other than life/music partner Carla Bley—focusing solely on organ and begging the question why she doesn't do so more often—this is a new constellation under the Swallow marquee, but guitarist Steve Cardenas and saxophonist Chris Cheek have intersected before, both with each other and with Swallow and Bley, in Paul Motian's Electric Bebop Band and Charlie Haden's Liberation Music Orchestra, respectively.

Mick Goodrick - chitara
Adam Nussbaum - tobe


The evidence indicates that Steve Swallow is a travelin’ man: this release was recorded on the road at Ronnie Scott’s venerable club in Soho. To call him a journeyman bassist would fall far short of his due: His is an irrepressible musical personality that suffuses any piece he touches. He has cultivated a unique sound, finding character in the bass guitar that few players can even imagine. [ JazzTimes ]

CD ECM Records Steve Swallow: Damaged In Transit

2002

Steve Swallow - bas
Chris Potter - saxofon tenor
Adam Nussbaum - tobe

In November 2002, the Steve Swallow Trio, also known as Damaged In Transit, blazed its way across Europe in a three-week tour that reached peak performances at its climax in France. It is from these French dates that "Damaged In Transit", the album, is drawn. The stripped-down sax/bass/drums line-up gives all players room to move, and the context makes a particularly impressive showcase for Chris Potter, whose solos are supercharged by the interaction of bassist Swallow and drummer Adam Nussbaum.

CD ECM Records Steve Swallow: Real Book

1994

Steve Swallow - bas
Tom Harrell - trompeta, flugelhorn
Joe Lovano - saxofon tenor
Mulgrew Miller - pian
Jack DeJohnette - tobe


If Steve Swallow is known primarily as an ace session bassist, it's not because his compositions are less than top-notch. This program finds him showing off his considerable writing chops with the help of an all-star group: trumpeter Tom Harrell, saxophonist Joe Lovano, pianist Mulgrew Miller and drummer Jack DeJohnette. His focus on the upper registers and the polyester tone of his five-string bass guitar will continue to annoy those who prefer to hear the bass played dark, low and woody, but there's no denying the consistent inventiveness of his playing or the charm of these compositions.

2006

Steve Swallow - bas
Robert Creeley - voce
Steve Kuhn - pian
Henrik Hannisdal - vioara
Odd Hannisdal - vioara
Marek Konstantynowicz - viola
Morten Hannisdal - violoncel


Poetry and jazz together can be treacherous territory, forcing narrators into a mannered mimicry of swing, but these short pieces strike an almost ideal balance between Creeley’s offhand, pragmatic pieces, Kuhn’s glossy postbop fluency and Swallow’s famously melodic, zither-like electric bass sound, with a string quartet sometimes adding dolorous mysteries. The jazz is straightahead, classy enough to hook the music’s regular audience; the strings writing is very sophisticated, and it all enhances the musicality of Creeley’s hypnotic narrative.

Michael Mantler - dirijor

German-born composer/trumpeter Michael Mantler and his then-wife Carla Bley were instrumental in developing within jazz the idea of self-sufficiency and independence from established record companies. Their creation of the Jazz Composer's Orchestra, with recordings released on their own label, was the culmination of this endeavor, and the first recording was one of the masterpieces of creative music in the '60s. Mantler had come from the European avant-classical tradition and sought to provide an orchestral framework supporting some of the most advanced musicians in avant-garde jazz -- and he succeeded magnificently. His style tends toward the brooding and darkly romantic with harsh, cynical edges, a perfect foil for the robust, shackle-breaking improvisations found herein. [ AllMusic ]

Sam Rivers - instrumente de suflat cu ancie, flaut
Anthony Braxton - instrumente de suflat cu ancie, flaut
Barry Altschul - percutie, marimba

An album of driving, progressive jazz it is also of historical significance as the only occasion when Sam Rivers and Anthony Braxton, two of the music’s most strikingly original saxophonists, recorded together. Inside Dave’s compositions they could meet – if briefly - and share ideas.

This summit meeting received raves from the press. “If you’ve found the new music lacking in swing, cohesion and variety, get to this album,” insisted Down Beat in a five star review. “It’s Holland’s date but each man contributes equally. The six Holland tunes offer great improvisational frameworks, and his bass playing, both arco and pizzicato, couldn’t be better… Don’t miss this one.”

1971

Chick Corea - pian
Dave Holland - contrabas
Barry Altschul - percutie

This LP features pianist Chick Corea, bassist Dave Holland and drummer Barry Altschul during the brief period that, along with Anthony Braxton, they were members of the fine avant-garde quartet Circle. The music heard on this set is not quite as free as Circle's but often very explorative. Four of the six songs are Corea originals which, in addition to Holland's "Vedana" and Wayne Shorter's "Nefertiti," form a very viable set of adventurous jazz, recorded just a few months before Corea changed direction [ AllMusic ]
