CD ECM Records Don Cherry / Ed Blackwell: El Corazon

1982

Don Cherry - pocket trumpet, pian, melodica, orga, doussn'gouni
Ed Blackwell - tobe, percutie

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

“The trumpeter sketches a succession of melodies and moods around and over the rich textural detail and earthy solidity of Mr Blackwell’s drumming,” noted Robert Palmer in The New York Times. “The melodies come from Spain, Africa, Jamaica and the modern jazz compositions of Thelonious Monk, but Mr Cherry and Mr Blackwell transform them into a personal music that is as urbane and international as they are. Together, they make El Corazón one of the most impressive duet albums of recent years.” This magical 1982 album, overflowing with character, has remained the reference recording for trumpet and drums duos.

CD ECM Records Arild Andersen: The Triangle

2003

Arild Andersen contrabas
Vassilis Tsabropoulos pian
John Marshall tobe

For a player with a background in classical music, pianist Vassilis Tsabropoulos has done wonders in the realm of jazz, and specifically improvisation. He still plays with a precise, sensitive touch and measures out dissonance in carefully metered pinches, but the tidal ebb and flow that characterizes this trio recording stands as remarkable evidence that he’s made the transition completely and elegantly. .. All three musicians on Triangle are active and forward players. John Marshall favors reinforcing the beat… Andersen, who has 15 recordings to his credit as a leader, plays with the confidence of a seasoned veteran and utilizes his deft and limber dexterity to connect the dots in counterintuitive ways.
A top pick of 2004

CD ECM Records John Surman: The Amazing Adventures Of Simon Simon

1981

John Surman - saxofon tenor si bariton, bas clarinet, sintetizatoare
Jack DeJohnette - tobe, percutie, pian electric


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

John Surman and Jack DeJohnette first played together in 1968, but didn’t make a duo album together until The Amazing Adventures of Simon Simon in 1981. Immediately recognised as a special album it won the Record of the Year Award in Jazz Forum’s Readers Poll. The press was equally enthusiastic. Down Beat: “Unrestrained delight! The stunning Adventures of Simon Simon shatters through several stylistic barriers in the most swingful of fashions – and goes right to the heart of modern musical artistry…5 stars.”

CD ECM Records Gary Peacock: Guamba

1987

Jan Garbarek - saxofon tenor si sopran
Gary Peacock - bas
Palle Mikkelborg - trompeta, flugelhorn
Peter Erskine - tobe

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

Gary Peacock’s recordings of the 1980s are production projects on which great players convened to play the bassist’s tunes. And the bass is fully a lead voice here, with title piece Guamba a Peacock solo to open the proceedings. As Paul Bley once said, “Gary is one of those rare musicians you could always count on to play better than you.” Nonetheless, there are mighty contributions from saxophone, trumpet and drums, with Jan Garbarek in particularly strong form. Jazz Forum: “Garbarek plays with magisterial power here.” Recorded 1987.

CD ECM Records Jack DeJohnette: New Directions

1978

Jack DeJohnette tobe, pian
John Abercrombie chitara, mandolina
Lester Bowie trompeta
Eddie Gomez bas

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

New Directions found drummer/pianist Jack DeJohnette reflecting on the multiple routes his musical life had taken and summarizing them in a single band. “My idea was to put together a cast of unlikely characters”. He’d worked with Eddie Gomez in the Bill Evans Trio, played extensively with John Abercrombie in the Gateway trio and a new alliance with Art Ensemble trumpeter Lester Bowie reconnected Jack to the experimental spirit of the early AACM. “With Lester added we had four strong and very different characters, could cover a lot of musical areas, and the chemistry was fantastic.” New Directions, recorded in 1978, won France’s Prix du Jazz Contemporain de L’Academie Charles Cros.

1975

Jan Garbarek - saxofon tenor si sopran
Bobo Stenson - pian
Palle Danielsson - bas
Jon Christensen - tobe

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

In the mid-1970s there was no European jazz group more popular than the Garbarek-Stenson Quartet, and Witchi-Tai-To was voted ‘Record of the Year 1974/75’ in Jazz Forum’s poll. Down Beat gave the album a five-star review: “Those who think that contemporary music from Europe lacks soul-fire are hereby advised to listen to Witchi-Tai-To.” Bobo Stenson: “The quartet had a chemistry that I’ve very rarely known, and I look back at the whole period as a happy and creative time.” The wide-open programme includes tunes by Carla Bley and Don Cherry as well as the title track composed by Jim Pepper.

CD ECM Records John Abercrombie / Marc Johnson / Peter Erskine

Martie 1975

John Abercrombie - chitara electrica
Dave Holland - contrabas
Jack DeJohnette - tobe

"With this record, John Abercrombie both repaved and detoured from his staid path. He could hardly have been in finer company, and the combination seems to have fanned all sorts of flames within him. DeJohnette and Holland string an array of tightropes across which Abercrombie balances his way into previously uncharted territory. [ ecmreviews ]

CD ECM Records Miroslav Vitous: Journey's End

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.

CD ECM Records David Darling: Cello

1992

David Darling - violoncel, violoncel electric

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

The modestly titled Cello has a cover image by Jean-Luc Godard and much of the music featured here gradually made its way into the great director’s films. This music paints images in the mind. Blogger Tyran Grillo wrote that “David Darling’s Cello is one of the most stunning albums ever to be released on ECM in any genre. Its fluid paths feel like home. Darling plows the improvisatory depths of his soul, given free rein in the studio to paint the negative spaces in between those clouds on the album’s cover, ever deeper, ever truer to the core of something alive.” Recorded 1991 and 1992.

1988

Jack DeJohnette tobe

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

“The phenomenal strength of Dave Holland’s bass pushes Steve Coleman and Jack DeJohnette into their most powerful work to date,” opined the Sydney Morning Herald. “The subtlety of Coleman’s inflections, the poise and complexity of his lines, are at the service of a very deep musical feeling. He is the best altoist to have emerged in a long time.” Recorded 1988.

An extended band deliver a remarkable sequence of tone-trances, at times faintly suggestive of Carla Bley and Gil Evans, but based on very small melodic motifs, given strength and mesmeric fascination by progressive harmonic overlays and tonal variation. Ulrikas Dans is a six-note ascending figure that turns into a surging clamour of sound, Intangible Waltz like Carla Bley drifting through musical dry ice, African Sunrise like exuberant Gild Evans and For Edward and Breathe as still and focused as a yoga meditation. Wonderful.

CD ECM Records Enrico Rava: Easy Living

2003

Enrico Rava Trumpet
Gianluca Petrella Trombone
Stefano Bollani Piano
Rosario Bonaccorso Double-Bass
Roberto Gatto Drums

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

“I’m extremely happy about this record”, Italian trumpeter Enrico Rava told All About Jazz. “I think it’s by far the best record I ever made. Everybody on the record sounds beautiful.” The disc bears out the judgement of the Jazzpar Prize jury who had elected Rava Musician of the Year a few months prior to this 2003 recording. “Rava’s bittersweet music does not fit neatly into any one genre. He can play fiery and lyrical lines and he can generate romantic atmospheres. He may shift between abstraction and structure, but he mostly plays the trumpet with a warm, mellow sound – smooth and intoxicating.“ Enrico is also an insightful bandleader, and Easy Living alerted a wider audience to the talents of pianist Stefano Bollani and trombonist Gianluca Petrella.

CD ECM Records Susanne Abbuehl: Compass

2004

Susanne Abbuehl Vocals
Wolfert Brederode Piano
Christof May Clarinet, Bass Clarinet
Lucas Niggli Drums, Percussion
Michel Portal Clarinet

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

Compass is a voyage at many levels: through music and text, with images evoking the freshness of sea air and the colours of wildflowers. A voyage through polar extreme of jazz – from Chick Corea to Sun Ra, through folk song in the slipstream of Luciano Berio, through poetry of James Joyce and William Carlos Williams. Also a journey through subtly undulating chamber music, improvised and otherwise. Through it all, Susanne Abbuehl’s cool, undemonstrative-yet-strangely-mesmeric voice is the unifying factor. She sings and speaks and whispers directly into the listener’s ear: an intimate, ‘interior’ voice, singing like thinking aloud. Recorded 2003 and 2004.
