CD ECM Records Ralph Towner: Batik

In stoc

1978
Ralph Towner - chitara, pian
Eddie Gomez - contrabas
Jack DeJohnette - tobe

There are certain images that seem fail-proof when musically evoked. The “Waterwheel” that inaugurates us into guitarist Ralph Towner’s astonishingly beautiful Batik is one of them. Having since been painted for us by such varied talents as Hamza El Din (see the Kronos Quartet’s Pieces of Africa) and Marina Belica (former leader of the October Project, of which their self-titled debut is a personal all-time favorite), Towner’s particular configuration embodies the best of all worlds with the precision of his fingers magnified to great effect by Jack DeJohnette on drums and soothingly animated by the bass of Eddie Gomez.

CD ECM Records Marc Johnson's Bass Desires: Second Sight

In stoc

Martie 1987
Marc Johnson - contrabas
Bill Frisell - chitara electrica
John Scofield - chitara electrica
Peter Erskine - tobe


ecmreviews:
"This sophomore effort from Marc Johnson’s Bass Desires comes nowhere near the octane levels of the project’s wild self-titled debut. This doesn’t mean, however, that Second Sight is no less enthralling. Its strength lies in its personnel. Guitarists Bill Frisell and John Scofield seem so well made for each other that, were they not split between the left and right channels, respectively, they might as well be thought of as some bizarre 12-stringed chunk of genius. How can we, for instance, not be moved by the sentiment of “Small Hands” and the resonant eddies of “Sweet Soul”? The latter, with its touch of Pat Metheny brightness, is especially moving. And let us not bypass the unassuming opener, “Crossing The Corpus Callosum.” Here the guitars dance on edge over the rolling hills of Peter Erskine’s drums and Johnson’s bass.

CD ECM Records Pat Metheny Group: American Garage

In stoc

1979

Pat Metheny - chitara electrica si acustica
Lyle Mays - claviaturi
Mark Egan - bas
Dan Gottlieb - tobe

AllMusic: " The back liner photo gives the impression of a grungy Midwestern garage band, but no, that doesn't describe this sophisticated jazz-rock quartet, which was simultaneously breaking into mass-market acceptance and away from the contemplative ECM stereotype. The arrangements are more structured, the playing often more intense and searching, with a more pronounced rock influence.

CD ECM Records Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock, Jack DeJohnette: Standards Vol. 1

In stoc

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

The protagonists had already recorded together on Gary Peacock’s Tales of Another in 1977, but Jarrett’s Standards project, with its dedication to the Great American Songbook, proposed a new sphere of operation, one that would make this trio among the best-loved bands in all of jazz. This New York Power Station recording from January 1983 established the simple blueprint: honour the standards as compositions and discover where the material can lead a creative improviser. There is fabulous playing here, including a wildly inventive “All The Things You Are”, and heart-rending versions of “Meaning of the Blues” and “It Never Entered My Mind”.

CD ECM Records Oregon

1983

Paul McCandless - instrumente cu ancie, flaut
Glen Moore - contrabas, vioara, pian
Ralph Towner - chitara, pian, sintetizator
Collin Walcott - sitar, percutie, voce

editie Touchstones - format mini-vinil replica, coperti gatefold, cartonate

ecmreviews: "By the time of this self-titled ECM debut, the collective known as Oregon had firmly established its uncategorizable sound on a host of recordings for Vanguard. From the cover photograph, which stands as one of the more confounding choices in ECM history, those unfamiliar with Oregon would probably never guess that the music it sleeves could be so ethereal. Oregon finds the group still in its original incarnation with Paul McCandless, Ralph Towner, Glen Moore, and Collin Walcott (in one of his last sessions with the group before his life was tragically ended in a 1984 car crash).

"John Abercrombie’s guitar is framed and supported by composer Vince Mendoza’s quasi-orchestral use of synthesizers. Jon Christensen’s drums add acoustic commentary. "

CD ECM Records Shankar: Song For Everyone

In stoc

1984

Shankar - vioara dubla cu 10 corzi, drum machine
Jan Garbarek - saxofon tenor si sopran
Zakir Hussain - tabla, conga
Trilok Gurtu - tobe si percutie

Shankar and Jan Garbarek’s previous collaboration, Vision, opened many people’s ears to the more fruitful possibilities of idiomatic blends. And while that initial project yielded a fascinating album in its own right, I always felt it lacked something I couldn’t quite articulate.

With Song For Everyone, that lack becomes clear once Trilok Gurtu and Zakir Hussain level the playing field with their earthy rhythms. In their presence, electric violin and saxophone can soar even higher, knowing there will always be a ground to return to. As if to underscore this point, Shankar also employs a drum machine, as in the delightful “Paper Nut” that inaugurates us into the album’s universe.

CD ECM Records Dino Saluzzi: Andina

In stoc

1988
Dino Saluzzi - bandoneon

editie Touchstones - format mini-vinil replica, coperti gatefold, cartonate

Dino Saluzzi’s solo bandoneon breathes songs of Andean mountain villages, family histories, the changing seasons and more, and draws you into the player’s world of memory, where chorales and tangos and waltzes resound. Saluzzi epitomises the musician-as-storyteller and his compositions on this 1988 recording paint pictures in the mind. Jean-Luc Godard responded to the implied images of Andina and used its music in both Nouvelle Vague and Histoire(s) du Cinéma.

CD ECM Records Chick Corea: Piano Improvisations Vol. 1

1971

Chick Corea - pian

editie Touchstones - format mini-vinil replica, coperti gatefold, cartonate

Chick Corea’s first unaccompanied album initiated the solo piano idiom at ECM, and proved to be extremely influential. Alongside music created in the moment, some powerful melodies are explored here, not least that of “Sometime Ago”, soon to be a theme song for the Return To Forever band. “I found it quite easy to select what I felt was the single best disc [of 1971]. Chick Corea’s Piano Improvisations Volume One is a true masterpiece of music and a very important album” - Michael Cuscuna, Record World.

CD ECM Records Peter Erskine Trio: Juni

1997

John Taylor - pian
Palle Danielsson - contrabas
Peter Erskine - tobe

editie Touchstones - format mini-vinil replica, coperti gatefold, cartonate

Recorded in 1997, Juni was the fourth and final ECM album of the Peter Erskine Trio. A piano trio led by a drummer was an unusual proposal and one that initially surprised listeners who had followed Erskine through louder adventures with Weather Report and the Stan Kenton Big Band. But this alliance with pianist John Taylor, the trio’s primary composer, and bassist Palle Danielsson soon found its own following. Down Beat described the music as “Zen-like” implying that much of its power resided in the not-played. “If such a thing as virtuosic understatement is possible, Peter Erskine's band makes it real,” the Ottawa Citizen agreed.

1982

Miroslav Vitous bas
John Surman saxofon sopran si bariton, bas clarinet
John Taylor pian
Jon Christensen tobe

editie Touchstones - format mini-vinil replica, coperti gatefold, cartonate

This quartet was the primary context for the Czech bassist Miroslav Vitous’s creativity in the late 70s and early 80s. “Like Mingus, Vitous is a real leader from the bass, and the music is all the stronger for it” – Gramophone. With three excellent writers in the line-up (John Surman and John Taylor as well as the leader) the quartet had an abundance of material to draw upon. Journey’s End includes “U Dunaje U Prešpurka” which Miroslav had played with the Junior Trio with Jan Hammer, as well as Surman’s Thomas Hardy-inspired ballad “Tess”, and Taylor’s “Windfall”. Collective improving capacities are to the fore on “Carry On, No. 1” which builds on the template of Jon Christensen’s drum patterns. Recorded 1982.

After leaving Herbie Hancock’s Mwandishi band trombonist Julian Priester and synthesizer pioneer Dr Patrick Gleeson put together this now-legendary album in two sessions in 1973. Extending the experiments of the Hancock sextet this music can also be related to Miles Davis’s robust Afro-funk-slanted electric group music of the period. Pumping bass ostinati, riffs and a big ‘tribal’ beat connect Love, Love to the music of Sly Stone and Funkadelic as well, while the shifting clouds of spacey improvising can also make a listener think of minimal music or Sun Ra. More than 40 years later this slice of proto-cyberfunk is still thoroughly enjoyable and timely.

Recorded in a Stockholm church in 1979, Aftenland documents a fascinating encounter between Jan Garbarek, improviser par excellence, and classical organist Kjell Johnsen. “Preparing and realizing Aftenland was one of the most interesting experiences in my entire career,” Johnsen has said. “A major artistic achievement”, wrote Contemporary Keyboard.
