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 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 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 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: 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: 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: 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.

Massimo Greco - trompeta, electronice
Marco Remondini - violoncel, electronice
Roberto Bonati - contrabas
Marco Micheli - contrabas, bas electric
Fulvio Maras - percutie, electronice

Trovesi has become one of European jazz’s most important musical voices and I can’t think of many who would even consider attempting something of this scope. This one will grow on me. [ Duncan Heining, Jazzwise ]

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 Anat Fort Trio + Gianluigi Trovesi: Birdwatching

2016

Anat Fort - pian
Gary Wang - contrabas
Roland Schneider - tobe
Gianluigi Trovesi - clarinet alto

Listening to this album for the first time, I was slightly thrown by the alto clarinet. Not a familiar voice like the soprano or bass clarinet, hearing over the course of full album took a little time to fully appreciate the range and nuances of the instrument, and assimilate Trovesi's musical language and tone. Playing with a bitter sweet sound, the clarinettist will colour and manipulate his sound, interpreting the written score and reacting to the rhythm section as if he too were a regular fixture of the ensemble. […] Anat is not one to wear her heart on her sleeve, but that does not lessen the emotional content of her music. Close listening reveals a sharp mind at work with each idea presented without any excess baggage, just lean and lithe lines that make their meaning felt succinctly before moving on. […] A captivating set that reveals an original voice continuing to grow. It will be interesting to hear how the Anat Fort Trio continue their journey, and I for one would relish the prospect of a solo album from this gifted enthralling pianist. [ Nick Lea, Jazz Views ]

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.”

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.”

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.

CD ECM Records Enrico Rava, Stefano Bollani, Paul Motian: Tati

2005

Enrico Rava - trompeta
Stefano Bollani - pian
Paul Motian - tobe

A ballads album of remarkable musical range and depth, an intensely melodic disc, featuring the unorthodox line-up of trumpet, piano and drums.

Tati, in its inspiration and collective execution and continuity, is … very possibly Enrico Rava’s most indispensable recording. The mood is never broken, but evolves. After the Gershwin, everything is originals by members of the trio except a Puccini theme from Tosca, which seamlessly becomes one more fluid form in the spontaneous aesthetic. … Rava’s … ideas are impossible to anticipate as they move in melodic tangents and intuitive flares of energy.

CD ECM Records Keith Jarrett: Sunbear Concerts

1976

Keith Jarrett - pian

AllMusic: "This gargantuan package -- a ten-LP set now compressed into a chunky six-CD box -- once was derided as the ultimate ego trip, probably by many who didn't take the time to hear it all. You have to go back to Art Tatum's solo records for Norman Granz in the '50s to find another large single outpouring of solo jazz piano like this, all of it improvised on the wing before five Japanese audiences in Kyoto, Osaka, Nagoya, Tokyo, and Sapporo.
