CD ECM Records Trygve Seim: The Source

2006

Trygve Seim - saxofoane
Oyvind Braekke - trombon
Mats Eilertsen - contrabas
Per Oddvar Johansen - tobe


This is more explicitly jazzy, with sax/trombone/bass/drums group the Source exploring a lazily animated, free-swing music influenced not only by Garbarek’s ghostly meditations but also by the more urgently quirky lines of Ornette Coleman. Trombonist Oyvind Braekke, a Coleman fan, has a bigger influence on this set than on previous ones, and drummer Per Oddvar Johansen and bassist Mats Eilertsen stir in fluid, restless undercurrents. For Seim stalwarts, however, there a re plenty of long trombone notes, spacey bass figures, whispering sax, cymbal washes and even some perkily assertive swing. This may be the most creative band at the sharp end of the north European scene.

CD ECM Records Trygve Seim, Frode Haltli: Yeraz

2008

Trygve Seim - saxofoane
Frode Haltli - acordeon

Norwegian musicians Seim and Haltli have collaborated often over the years, and Frode is also a member of Trygve’s “Sangam” ensemble. But the flexible duo format has provided a particularly useful forum for the exploration of the most divergent music – from the Armenian folk song that gives the album its title to free play, from Gurdjieff to Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song”, and new and old tunes by Trgyve - as well as the exploration of sound, the plangent cry of the sax against the accordion’s breathing reeds. The Seim/Haltli duo has been a popular touring unit in recent seasons: this is the first, eagerly-anticipated, recorded documentation of its music.

CD ECM Records Trygve Seim, Frode Haltli: Rumi Songs

2016

Trygve Seim - saxofoane
Frode Haltli - acordeon
Tora Augestad - voce
Svante Henryson -acordeon

Norwegian saxophonist Trygve Seim sets the poetry of Jalaluddin Rumi (1207-1273), using the inspired contemporary English-language versions of Coleman Barks and Kabir Helminski as his source texts. Trygve responds both to the musicality of the translations and to Rumi’s gifts as a storyteller and with Rumi Songs seems to have invented a new kind of Lieder with a Nordic-Oriental orientation. The line-up is strikingly unorthodox, with each of the quartet members bringing their own musical personalities to the material. Classical mezzo-soprano Tora Augestad is well-known as the leader of her own ensemble Music For A While, and for her numerous music-theatre collaborations with Christoph Mathaler. She finds an intimate tone to convey Rumi’s thoughts, underlined by the elegant arrangements and the improvisational input of Seim, Haltli and Henryson.

CD ECM Records Larry Grenadier: The Gleaners

2019

Larry Grenadier - contrabas

Larry Grenadier’s The Gleaners is a profound and highly creative album, harvesting influences from many sources, its title inspired by Agnès Varda’s film The Gleaners and I. In between his own pieces here, including a dedication to early hero Oscar Pettiford, Grenadier explores compositions by George Gershwin, John Coltrane, Paul Motian, Rebecca Martin and Wolfgang Muthspiel.

2008

Mark Turner - saxofon tenor

Rondo, Jazz-CD des Monats
Jazzman, Choc du Mois

Fly conquers the challenge presented to all trios in its ability to think as one, telepathically adjusting as each member prods or pulls back, making space for a gorgeous tenor comment or a perfectly chosen rim shot then undulating into another collective form and shape. Fly’s ability to probe each member’s mind is its greatest asset. The results often prove revelatory.

2016

Frode Haltli - acordeon

Arditti Quartet :
Irvine Arditti - vioara
Ashot Sarkissjan - vioara
Ralf Ehlers - viola
Lucas Fels - violoncel
Trondheim Soloists

Bent Sorensen: It Is Pain Flowing Slowly On A White Wall
Hans Abrahamsen: Air
Hans Abrahamsen: Three Little Nocturnas
Bent Sorensen: Sigrids Wiegenlied


The innovative Norwegian accordionist Frode Haltli is heard here with chamber orchestra, with string quartet and solo, performing music written for him by Danish composers Bent Sørensen and Hans Abrahamsen. Sørensen, he notes, has been an influence on his development as a player, challenging perceptions of what can be achieved on the accordion through tone control and nuances in soft dynamics, a subject explored in detail on It is Pain Flowing Down Softly on a White Wall, where Haltli is heard with the Trondheim Soloists. Hans Abrahamsen’s Three Little Nocturnes find the accordionist in the company of the redoubtable Arditti Quartet. For the title composition Air, Hans Abrahamsen returned, at Frode Haltli’s suggestion, to the early solo work Canzona, reworking until it became a new piece “characterized by a great sense of peace and a cohesive form”.

CD ECM Records Frode Haltli: Passing Images

2007

Frode Haltli - acordeon
Arve Henriksen - trompeta
Maja Solveig Kjelstrup Ratkje - voce
Garth Knox - viola

Frode Haltli, acknowledged as one of the most outstanding accordion soloists in contemporary music, is also an exceptional improviser and an authority on folk music. His second ECM recording under his own name brings all of these aspects of his musical character together. Repertoire includes a psalm from the western fjords, a lyrical waltz from Haltli‘s home village near the Swedish border, a Roma traveller tune that suggests Albert Ayler‘s sound-world... With a supporting cast including Irish-Scottish classical viola player Garth Knox (ex-Arditti Quartet) as well as Norwegian partners composer/singer Maja Ratkje and trumpeter Arve Henriksen, Haltli offers a radical new look at music from traditional sources.

CD ECM Records Music of Georges I. Gurdjieff - Levon Eskenian

2008

The Gurdjieff Folk Instruments Ensemble, Levon Eskenian

Fascinating and highly attractive project which returns the music of Gurdjieff (c. 1866 – 1949) to its ethnic inspirational sources. To date Gurdjieff’s compositions have largely been studied, in the West, via the piano transcriptions of Thomas de Hartmann. Armenian composer Levon Eskenian now goes beyond the printed notes to look at the musical traditions that Gurdjieff encountered during his travels, and rearranges the compositions from this perspective. Eskenian draws attention to the roots of the pieces in Armenian, Greek, Arabic, Kurdish, Assyrian, Persian and Caucasian folk and spiritual music. Enlisting the assistance of some of the leading players in Armenia, Eskenian founded the Gurdjieff Folk Instruments Ensemble in 2008, and with them he has now realized a remarkable album. “What appeals most to me in Levon Eskenian's instrumentation is the extremely meticulous, clear cut work approach - without unnecessary ‘composing’ and ‘cleverness’- when in the wilderness of silence the tiniest intervention is done with sound, which is very characteristic of Gurdjieff's works. There is deep silence at the core of Gurdjieff’s music that relates us to the Ecclesiastes chapter of the Bible, or to the truth told of deep silences from faraway lands, a stillness that has not been darkened at all, and has the degree of density that leaves the Gurdjieffian silence immaculate.” – Tigran Mansurian

CD ECM Records Tim Berne: Snakeoil

2011

Tim Berne - saxofon alto
Oscar Noriega - clarinet, bas clarinet
Matt Mitchell - pian
Ches Smith - tobe

Tim Berne, noted explorer of the tensions between composition and improvisation, knew exactly what he was doing in assembling his latest band. Here, the iconoclastic New York saxophonist has constructed a vehicle that allows his purposeful musical personality to shine through both in terms of the group arrangements and his own expressive voice. Overall, (as befits Berne's first release on ECM as a leader), the tunes have a cerebral feel. [...] Berne's sax rises upwards into an earthy extra dimension, as breezy and urban as a yellow taxi cab. There's a chamber music delicacy to it all, sure, but it's one that's suffused with genuine humanity and more than a little wisdom.

CD ECM Records Tim Berne's Snakeoil: Shadow Man

2013

Tim Berne's Snakeoil:
Tim Berne - saxofon alto
Oscar Noriega - clarinet, bas clarinet
Matt Mitchell - pian, Wurlitzer
Ches Smith - tobe, percutie, vibrafon

Berne on alto saxophone, Oscar Noriega on clarinets, Matt Mitchell on piano, and Ches Smith on assorted drums, gongs, and vibes deliver half a dozen tunes -- five originals (that range from middle length to exceptionally long) and a deeply moving reading of Paul Motian's ‘Psalm’ -- with striking originality and a deepened focus on dialogue and exchange. Berne's writing is intensely detailed, and never more so than here. He writes motifs and frames that are designed to be lyrical yet open to dialogic improvisational opportunities. [...] Shadow Man's experiment, in trying to capture Snakeoil's live performance in detail and dynamic, is not only successful, it reveals this band at a peak of instinctive, intuitive creativity and imagination.

2015

Tim Berne's Snakeoil:
Tim Berne - saxofon alto
Oscar Noriega - clarinet, bas clarinet
Ryan Ferreira - chitara acustica si electrica
Matt Mitchell - pian, electronice
Ches Smith - tobe, percutie, vibrafon, timpane

Intensely theatrical yet deliberate, New York-based alto saxophonist Tim Berne’s third ECM album runs quite the emotional and compositional gamut. It spans the clang and sweep of ‘Embraceable Me’, the oddly groove-rich ‘Small World In A Small Town’ and the querulous ‘Semi-Self Detached’, and it’s largely a testament – an excellent one – to the long form.[…] This is a quintet of huge ambition and power that punches way above its weight.

2017

Tim Berne's Snakeoil:
Tim Berne - saxofon alto
Oscar Noriega - clarinet, bas clarinet
Ryan Ferreira - chitara electrica
Matt Mitchell - pian, electronice
Ches Smith - tobe, percutie, vibrafon, timpane

Alto saxist/composer Tim Berne has always been known for his energy music – few musicians outside of John Zorn are as comfortable with powerhouse improvisation as Berne. But he’s as much author as performer, and ‘Incidentals’, his fourth LP with current ensemble Snakeoil, highlights his writing as much as his musicians’ playing. […] the centerpiece is ‘Sideshow,’ nearly a half hour of Berne, Noriega, Mitchell and Ferreira exploring every nook and cranny of the piece, going from out to in to somewhere in between, translating the love/hate relationship between chaos and order into a musical journey. […] After as many decades as he’s been active, you’d think Berne might be slowing down in his middle years. But ‘Incidentals’ is proof that he’s just as wired and iconoclastic as ever.

CD ECM Records Michael Formanek: The Rub And Spare Change

2009

Michael Formanek - contrabas
Tim Berne - saxofon alto
Craig Taborn - pian
Gerald Cleaver - tobe

Bassist Michael Formanek’s latest album is a masterful work of postmodern jazz noir. […] “Too Big to Fail”, the last song on the album, serves as an excellent conclusion to “The Rub and Spare Change”. Formanek and company employ all of the musical tools they utilized on the previous tracks: droning keyboard that lulls the listener into a fugue state; staccato saxophone that pierces the song, leaving only scraps of sound; and a jumble of percussion and bass that forces out new rhythms. “The Rub and Spare Change” is an achievement brimming with energy, with creativity, and with a ferocious playfulness lacking in a lot of new jazz.

CD ECM Records Craig Taborn Trio: Chants

2012

Craig Taborn - pian
Thomas Morgan - contrabas
Gerald Cleaver - tobe

The songs on Craig Taborn Trio’s latest CD, ‘Chants’, have titles, but they don’t have borders, or ordinary structures, or typical narrative flow. The songs are positively shimmering, immaculately detailed, prismatic and very improvisational. But they don’t live quickly or land easily; they flutter and spiral, bend and float, and constantly surprise. [...] You hear strains of Keith Jarrett, Paul Bley’s rambles and Paul Motian’s trios, even the urgency and repetition of some electronic music, but ‘Chant’ is original to its core. And lovely as in the lulaby like stillness of ‘In Chant’ Taborn’s stately, sad acoustic piano lines wrapping around double bassist Thomas Morgan’s lyrical lines and Gerald Cleaver’s sizzling brush strokes.

CD ECM Records Craig Taborn: Avenging Angel

2011

Craig Taborn - pian

Listen to Avenging Angel a few times and, remarkably, the music becomes your special friend. Each piece imparts a different mood: I heard echoes of an old-fashioned children’s music box, quirky Eric Satie-like minimalism, film noir foreboding, serene solitary meditation, liquid Debussyesque ripples, dogged gambols, stately resolve, meaningful wanderin – in other words the gamut.
Juan Rodriguez, Montreal Gazette

Texture and dynamics are the key to the success of the album […] He weaves small improvisations into thoughtful statements, not in a grandiose or bombastic way, but in a manner that allows the music and ideas to flow through him in an unimpeded manner. But he also knows hot to up the ante as well, building the music into swirling two-handed lines that show the manual dexterity he is capable of.

CD ECM Records Craig Taborn: Daylight Ghosts

2017

Craig Taborn - pian
Chris Speed - saxofon tenor, clarinet
Chris Lightcap - bas electric, contrabas
Dave King - tobe, percutie electronica

Taborn has a strong interest in group chemistry and ‘Daylight Ghosts’ is an ensemble offering in the true sense of the term. In most songs it is the overlap and entwining of parts, the polymelodies as polyrhythms, that hold the attention, with head-solo-head strategies largely eschewed. Furthermore Taborn excels at conjuring ambiences where chords don’t so much shift as melt in and out of focus […] Taborn’s ability to blur the line between organic and synthetic timbres so that contemporary technology dos not at all feel like a bolted-on element in the arrangements is no less impressive. Sprightly non-western rhythms, fluid time and bluesy backbeats simply enhance this beguiling hypnosis.
Kevin Le Gendre, Jazzwise

Craig Taborn's third ECM album, 2017's ‘Daylight Ghosts’, is a sophisticated quartet date that finds the pianist deftly balancing his exploratory, classical-influenced jazz with subtle electronics, avant-garde flourishes, and a robust group aesthetic […] At turns unsettling and haunting, yet rife with a brightly dynamic lyricism, ‘Daylight Ghosts’ is an endlessly compelling, deeply imagistic album packed with Taborn's inspired musical juxtapositions.

Fans of the avant garde in jazz, classical, and improvised music will find plenty to enjoy on ‘The Bell’, and those less sure of their affinity for the sonically unexpected are likely to find themselves intrigued by the elegance and delicacy of this music.
Andrea Canter, Jazzpolice

This trio began as a casual one-time project, the music entirely improvised. The combination clicked so well that Smith began writing music for them to play—but leaving plenty of space for improvisation to happen. The result is an intriguing combination of composition and improvisation.

2017 -

But, most importantly, Small Town represents the guitarist's first recorded encounter with Thomas Morgan in the intimate setting of a duo, the double bassist having first shown up on Frisell's film soundtrack homage, When You Wish Upon a Star (Okeh, 2016). As superb as When You Wish Upon a Star undeniably is, it's in the more naked, completely vulnerable environs of the duo—where the need for musical trust is, perhaps, at its most crucial—that the profound chemistry shared by these two thoroughly synchronized players becomes even clearer.
