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.

CD ECM Records Steve Swallow: Always Pack Your Uniform On Top

2000

Steve Swallow - bas
Barry Ries - trompeta
Chris Potter - saxofon tenor
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.

CD ECM Records Steve Swallow, Robert Creeley: So There

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.

Andrew Cyrille, Beaver Harris - tobe
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 ]

CD ECM Records Dave Holland Quartet: Conference Of The Birds

1972

Dave Holland - contrabas
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.”

CD ECM Records Chick Corea, Dave Holland, Barry Altschul: ARC

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 ]

Interpreti:

ecmreviews:
"After bringing his Midas touch to the projects of Eberhard Weber, it was only a matter of time before Rainer Brüninghaus would be given an opportunity to lead, and did so at last to soaring effect on Freigeweht (Free-blown) with a group of sympathetic musicians and a compositional aptitude to match."

Angel Song represents the uniting of four exceptional improvisors with unique artistic identities. This beautiful recording features the legendary Kenny Wheeler, Lee Konitz, Dave Holland and Bill Frisell coming together for the very first time. This unique drummerless quartet performs a program of all Kenny Wheeler compositions and has the undefinable hallmarks of a classics.

CD ECM Records Kenny Wheeler Quintet: The Widow In The Window

1990

Kenny Wheeler - Flugelhorn, trompete
John Abercrombie - chitara
John Taylor - pian
Dave Holland - contrabas
Peter Erskine - tobe

Trumpeter Kenny Wheeler and his sidemen on this quintet CD (guitarist John Abercrombie, pianist John Taylor, bassist Dave Holland and drummer Peter Erskine) had all worked together previously in different settings. Their familiarity with each other's playing came in handy for the frequently intuitive session which consists of explorations of six of Wheeler's complex but often-melodic originals (including "The Widow in the Window," "Hotel Le Hot" and the lengthy "Ana"). Kenny Wheeler's music occupies its own unique area between post bop and free jazz and virtually all of his recordings are recommended to adventurous listeners, including this one. [ AllMusic ]

Rainer Brüninghaus - pian
Marilyn Mazur - percutie
SWR Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra, Roland Kluttig - dirijor
Wolfgang Dauner - pian
Nino G. - Beat Box

Stages Of A Long Journey is a crystal-clear recording of a 65th birthday concert held in his home town, Stuttgart. Guests such as Jan Garbarek and Marilyn Mazur play wonderfully, and the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra flesh out famous Weber tunes such as The Colours of Chloe and Silent Feet. … A soundworld further enhanced by the vibes of Gary Burton. Yet Weber always leads from the bass, with a timbre that rings true in any context.

"There is something of the "six degrees of separation" theory at work in this newly formed trio, led loosely, by the great Jack DeJohnette. The drummer/multi-instrumentalist works in the company of saxophonist Ravi Coltrane whose lineage is well known, and bassist/electronic artist Matthew Garrison whose father Jimmy Garrison was the bassist in John Coltrane's classic quartet. And, of course, DeJohnette, early in his career, played with the fathers of both of his trio mates. [ AllAboutJazz ]

If trumpeter Avishai Cohen's ECM debut, Into The Silence was a work of deeply personal content, Cross My Palm With Silver plays out with the same emotional impact, but on a global stage. Cohen composed the five pieces on this album in his native Israel, while contemplating the impact of political division on the human psyche. His hope is that the music contributes to a healing process. [ AllAboutJazz ]

By the time German radio captured this live set at NDR Funkhaus in 1972, Keith Jarrett had been playing with Charlie Haden and Paul Motian for six years. Their first recording together was on 1967's Life Between the Exit Signs, followed by El Juicio with Dewey Redman (from which two of the pieces here are drawn), and Mourning of a Star, both from 1971

CD ECM Records Keith Jarrett: Eyes Of The Heart

1979
Keith Jarrett - pian, saxofon sopran
Dewey Redman - saxofon tenor, tamburina, maracas
Charlie Haden - contrabas
Paul Motian - tobe, percutie

This live recording features pianist Keith Jarrett (also playing a bit of soprano), tenor saxophonist Dewey Redman, bassist Charlie Haden and drummer Paul Motian performing the 33-minute title cut and an 18-minute piece simply called "Encore."

Every recording by this particular group (arguably Jarrett's best working ensemble) is well worth hearing, for they had their own sound and the ability to play both "inside" and "outside" simultaneously, and they were continually full of surprises. Originally released as a two-LP set with the fourth side completely blank, the intriguing music has since been reissued as a single CD. [ AllMusic ]

CD ECM Records Dewey Redman Quartet: The Struggle Continues

1982

Dewey Redman - saxofon tenor
Charles Eubanks - pian
Mark Helias - contrabas
Ed Blackwell - tobe

Dewey was showing the way with this supremely hip meeting between bop, blues and freedom. Veering between the joyously abstract bop of the opener to the wonderfully raunchy, low-down R&B of ‘Turn over Baby’, the self-taught Texan’s throaty, avant-blues gregariousness receives top notch support. Ed Blackwell’s buoyant rhythms are loose and pithy at the same time. Meanwhile, ex-Motown pianist Charles Eubanks is an intelligent, underrated player… Another underrated player, Mark Helias, was a key member of Blackwell’s group and combines superbly, contributing a series of dextrous solos too. … A welcome reissue.

Jim Pepper - saxofoane, flaut
Dewey Redman - saxofon tenor
Steve Slagle - saxofoane, clarinet, flaut
Gary Valente - trombon

The outbursts of free improvisation throughout the album contrast the beautiful songs and add a confrontational side of protest to the music. After all the issues at hand do piss off these musicians. In a surprising move Downbeat Magazine selected Ballad of the Fallen as Jazz album of the year in 1984. ECM was a favorite label on the magazine in the early 80s. The Art Ensemble Of Chicago – Full Force won in 1981 and Old and New Dreams – Playing in 1982.

CD ECM Records Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock, Jack DeJohnette: Standards In Norway

1995

Keith Jarrett - pian
Gary Peacock - contrabas
Jack DeJohnette - tobe

Keith Jarrett has recorded quite a few albums with his "Standards Trio," which also features bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Jack DeJohnette, and virtually all of their releases are enjoyable. The music that they create is in some ways an update of the type of interplay that took place between Bill Evans and his sidemen, where all three musicians often act as equals (although Jarrett, like Evans, has most of the solo space). An uptempo "Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing" is a surprising highpoint of this disc but also quite memorable are "All of You," "Old Folks" and "How About You?"; none of the eight performances from the concert appearance are throwaways. Jarrett's vocal sounds are more restrained than usual while his piano playing is in peak form. [ AllMusic ]
