CD ECM Records Charles Lloyd: Lift Every Voice

2002

Charles Lloyd - saxofon tenor
Geri Allen - pian
John Abercrombie - chitara
Marc Johnson - bas
Larry Grenadier - bas
Billy Hart - tobe

AllMusic: "As Charles Lloyd prepared to kick off a gig at New York's Blue Note club the night of Tuesday September 11, 2001, some murderous terrorists had some other plans for that morning a bit further south. The gig thus didn't begin until that Friday, and the wheels in Lloyd's mind kept on rolling through the aftermath, resulting in this double-CD album.

"This debut album from Lester Bowie’s Brass Fantasy is still the outfit’s best. The moment those doo-wop horns saunter in for the title cut, you know you’ve come home. Bowie not only enthralls us with his fortitude, but manages to do so while keeping alive in his muted cone the dying flame of a bygone era.

CD ECM Records Ketil Bjornstad: Vinding's Music

Ketil Bjørnstad - pian
Gunilla Süssmann - pian
Jie Zhang - pian
Norwegian Radio Orchestra , dirijor Christian Eggen

A double album as literary soundtrack, its release coinciding with Norwegian publication of the one-volume edition of Ketil Bjørnstad’s highly-acclaimed fictional trilogy “To Music”/”The River”/”The Lady In The Valley”, and with the author’s 60th birthday on April 25. After keeping his musical and writing activities separate for decades, Ketil dissolved the boundaries with his “Vinding” books: “When I had the idea of writing a trilogy about the young piano student Aksel Vinding, I realised that I would have to grant music access to my world of writing. This felt surprisingly liberating, almost like a confession. Music is a powerful source of inspiration for many writers, and so it was for me when I relived, through the novels, my experiences as a young piano student in Oslo in the late 1960s and early 1970s.” When the trilogy was completed, a concert of music referenced in Bjørnstad’s narrative was mounted in Oslo. Pianists Jie Zhang and Gunilla Süssman, with the Norwegian Radio Orchestra, performed compositions by Beethoven, Chopin, Debussy, Ravel, Rachmaninoff, and Barber, with conductor Christian Eggen also heard as piano soloist in the second movement of Mozart’s A major piano concerto. A recording from the concert comprises volume two of the present set. Disc one features Bjørnstad as improvising solo pianist, meditating upon themes related to his protagonist.

2012

Matias Bjornstad - saxofon alto
Bjorn Kjellemyr - contrabas
Hans-Kristian Kjos Sorensen - percutie
Oslo Chamber Choir ( dirijor Egil Fossum )

"For a country with such a small population, Norway has much to be proud of when it comes to the arts...and not just music, though it remains a country whose support has certainly resulted in a disproportionate number of creative musicians across the broadest musical spectrum. Looking at the violin and its variants alone, there is the traditional Hardanger fiddle work of Nils Okland, already known to fans of the ECM label for albums including Lysoen: Hommage a Ole Bull (2011), his subtle and sublime duo recording with pianist/harmonium player Sigbjorn Apeland; the more decidedly classical leanings of violinist Bjarte Eike, a member of keyboardist Jon Balke's Magnetic North Orchestra, most recently heard on Diverted Travels (ECM, 2004), and whose own The Image of Melancholy (BIS, 2014) is an overlooked gem; or the more pedal-to-the-metal work of violinist Ola Kvernberg in the recent debut of Grand General (Rune Grammofon, 2013).

CD ECM Records Ketil Bjornstad, David Darling: Epigraphs

2000

Ketil Bjornstad - pian
David Darling - violoncel

"What a record it is! Epigraphs combines the delicately weighted, mathematically perfect, lingering notes from Bjørnstad's piano with the growling, soaring singing of Darling's cello. Like their earlier collaboration The River, the pieces here owe much to 16th/17th century composers William Byrd and Orlando Gibbons. The pair share a mutual instinct for improvisation which has resulted in one of the most exquisite albums of slow, raw music to emerge in recent years." [ Mike Bradley, The Times ]

2011

Billy Hart - tobe
Mark Turner - saxofon tenor
Ben Street - contrabas
Ethan Iverson - pian

First ECM recording of a quartet formed in 2003. Originally billed as the Ethan Iverson-Mark Turner Quartet, it soon became the Billy Hart Quartet, and under this name has played shows to packed houses each year in New York City. The group’s first album for hard-bop label High Note in 2005 figured on many critics’ best-of-the year list. Since then, the ensemble’s music has gotten more free and spacious, a sensibility that aligns perfectly with ECM.

2013

Billy Hart - tobe
Mark Turner - saxofon tenor
Ben Street - contrabas
Ethan Iverson - pian

The second ECM album by the Billy Hart Quartet is a major musical statement, and one of the outstanding jazz albums of the season. The group’s reach – already broad on 2011’s widely-acclaimed All Our Reasons – is yet more expansive here. Strong compositions – by leader-drummer Hart, tenorist Mark Turner and pianist Ethan Iverson – reflect upon a wide swathe of the music’s history, and are distinguished by vivid and imaginative solos and wonderful interplay.

This is a record alive with patient intelligence. Carla Bley’s newish quartet, the Lost Chords, is a reduction of her more commonly known Big Band, and here it’s in no hurry; it just saunters gloriously through her original music. … [ Ben Ratliff, The New York Times ]

CD ECM Records Ralph Towner / Paolo Fresu: Chiaroscuro

2008
Ralph Towner - chitara clasica, chitara cu 12 corzi, chitara bariton
Paolo Fresu - trompeta, flugelhorn

Acoustic guitar and trumpet aren’t an ordinary combination, and Chiaroscuso is, aptly, an extraordinary album. Ralph Towner, a reflective man’s guitar hero for four decades, has paired with young Italian trumpeter Paolo Fresu. Fresu floats pure, vibrato-less lines through Towner’s harmonic webs on classical, 12-string and baritone guitars. Towner revisits his early “Wistful Thinking” and has written such new beauties as “Sacred Place”, which evokes the cinematic richness of Ennio Morricone. Fresu channels Miles Davis on an impressionistic cover of “Blue in Green. [ Bradley Bambarger, The Star-Ledger ]

CD ECM Records Paolo Fresu & Daniele di Bonaventura: In Maggiore

2015
Paolo Fresu - trompeta, flugelhorn
Daniele di Bonaventura - bandoneon

"Sardinian-born trumpeter Paolo Fresu and bandoneonist Daniele di Bonaventura from Fermo, Italy, indicated the depth of their musical understanding on 2011's 'Mistico Mediterraneo', a collaboration with Corsican singers A Filetta. On 'In maggiore', left to their own resources, they explore a very broad range of material.

This includes original ballads by both players, improvisations, a theme from Puccini's La Boheme, liturgical music, pieces by legendary Chilean songwriter Victor Jara and Uruguayan singer-songwriter Jaime Roos, music of Neapolitan composer Ernersto de Curtis, 'O que sera' by Brazil's Chico Buarque and more.

CD ECM Records Marc Sinan: Fasil

2008

Marc Sinan

Lena Thies - violoncel
Marc Muellbauer - contrabas
Heinrich Kbberling - tobe

ecmreview:
"Guitarist and composer Marc Sinan, recently of the (sadly) European-only release Hasretim, made his ECM debut with Fasıl, an album of enduring originality and refinement. The title refers to a suite form used in both classical and modern Ottoman ensemble music, and which here would seem to nod in both directions. It’s almost unfortunate that the Turkish word should so closely resemble the English “facile,” for the music here is anything but superficial. By way of comparison, one might pair it with Jon Balke’s SIWAN, as Balke illuminates and draws out likeminded ethnomusical connections with care.

Stone in the Water is one of Italian pianist Stefano Bollani’s most beautiful albums. It’s also one of his gentlest, in writing and arrangement. The improvisations have more heft and energy. In both modes, the young player maintains his signature intensity. … A lovely document by an exemplary trio. [ Michael J. West, Jazz Times ]

CD ECM Records Enrico Rava, Stefano Bollani: The Third Man

2007

Enrico Rava - trompeta
Stefano Bollani - pian

They have been playing together since the early 1990s, Bollani hailing trumpeter Rava as his mentor, and Rava regarding Bollani as “perhaps the most gifted pianist since Art Tatum”. After Rava’s highly acclaimed “Easy Living” (quintet featuring Bollani) and the Rava/Bollani/Paul Motian collaboration “Tati”, comes this superb duo set, recorded in Lugano in November 2006. Here is marvellous linear playing and melodies plucked from the air, two master improvisers making freely lyrical jazz together – inspired by jazz history, South American music (an important source for both musicians), the Italian song tradition, contemporary composition and more, all developed, under Manfred Eicher’s supervision, into a unique programme. The repertoire includes compositions by each of the protagonists, two takes of Antonio Carlos Jobim’s famous ballad “Retrato Em Branco Y Preto”, a reinvention of “Estate” by the Italian singer Bruno Martino (whose own inspirations included Neapolitan folk song as well as jazz ) and spontaneous –yet profoundly melodic – free improvisation on the title track.

Iunie 2013

AllMusic:
"On Joy in Spite of Everything, Italian pianist Stefano Bollani reconvened his longstanding trio with drummer Morten Lund and bassist Jesper Bodilsen. They recorded three previous dates together, the most recent being 2009's excellent Stone in the Water on ECM. Bollani has continually displayed -- from his dates with mentor Enrico Rava, on solo offerings, and with other leaders, that his playing and composing signatures are not only versatile and Catholic in their approach to jazz, but informed equally by the building blocks and possibilities of song itself. To that end, he has added two more players to this date, guitarist Bill Frisell and saxophonist Mark Turner. The group performs on these tunes not only as a quintet, but in various quartets, trios, and duets.

CD ECM Records Mark Turner Quartet: Lathe Of Heaven

2013
Mark Turner - saxofon tenor
Avishai Cohen - trompeta
Joe Martin - contrabas
Marcus Gilmore - tobe

Mark Turner is one of the most admired saxophonists of his generation, renowned for his exploratory intellect and intimate expressivity on the full range of the tenor. This is his ECM leader debut, following albums for the label in the cooperative trio Fly with Larry Grenadier and Jeff Ballard, and appearances on key recordings by Billy Hart, Enrico Rava and Stefano Bollani. Turner leads a quartet of kindred spirits here, often entwining in serpentine fashion with rising-star trumpeter Avishai Cohen. They play long, introspective lines of hypnotic grace; and with the lithe rhythm section of bassist Joe Martin and drummer Marcus Gilmore, there is subtle volatility in the air.

Leading French clarinetist-composer-improviser Louis Sclavis continues his musical adventures with Gilles Coronado and Benjamin Moussay, who contributed creatively to his Atlas Trio album Sources in 2011. The addition of Iranian classical percussionist Kevyan Chemirani, master of the zarb, has brought a new dimension to their world of sound. Adventurous contemporary music, says Sclavis, can be broad enough to embrace different but complementary traditions. “‘Silk and Salt’ indicates my desire for this work to take an imaginary, nomadic, Central Asian route, but also to address the idea of emigration in world history. In this case: journeying away from and back to jazz.”

CD ECM Records Nik Bartsch's Ronin: Live

2007

Nik Bartsch - pian
Sha - bas clarinet, contrabas clarinet, alto saxofon
Bjorn Meyer - bas
Kaspar Rast - tobe
Andi Pupato - percutie

Ronin around the world: a powerful and atmospheric concert recording with music captured in Germany, Austria, Holland, England, and Japan, a double-album which transmits the live impact of Nik Bärtsch’s band and its enveloping modular groove music of interlocking rhythms. It’s also a set that marks the end of an era and the transition into a new one. These are the last recordings of Ronin with Björn Meyer’s elegantly-leaping bass guitar as one of the lead voices, and Bärtsch views the album as partly a tribute to Meyer’s long tenure with the band. New bassist Thomy Jordi, meanwhile, makes an impressive entrance on “Modul 55”, but it’s most often the whole band, as a unified field of force, that commands the listener’s attention.
