Recipient of a rare 5-Star review from the Penguin Guide to Jazz, Lumi is one of the key items in the discography of Finnish drummer-composer Edward Vesala. It was the first of his ECM recordings to feature his Sound and Fury ensemble, with creative co-arranger Iro Haarla on piano and harp. “Each piece is full of melodic ideas, brilliantly scored”, wrote The Wire. A range of moods is explored, from the impressionist tone poem “The Wind” to the playful Finnish tango “Fingo,” and guitarist Raoul Björkenheim solos powerfully.

CD ECM Records Bill Connors: Of Mist And Melting

A guitarist’s guitarist, Bill Connors has always had the admiration of his peers. Steve Tibbetts recently praised Connors’s “left-hand vibrato, his sense of space, his liquid phrasing, the way he lingers on a note” – all qualities in evidence on 1977’s Of Mist and Melting. Jazz Journal: “The combination of Connors’s predominantly cool linearity and DeJohnette’s patented rolling and tumbling creates a very special blend of poetic contemplation and rhythmic vitality.”

CD ECM Records Chick Corea / Gary Burton: Crystal Silence

1973:
Chick Corea - pian
Gary Burton - vibrafon

The Corea/Burton duo was brought together by producer Manfred Eicher, and Crystal Silence (recorded in 1972) brought a new chamber music sensibility into jazz improvisation, distinguished by an effervescence of melody and countermelody, with synchronized cascades of sound in continually changing harmonic movement. “It becomes a little magical,” said Corea. Stereo: “Crystal Silence is an album of extraordinary musicianship and rare beauty. Rarely have two musicians been so perfectly matched and rarely do we hear an album of such consistent excellence and originality. “

CD ECM Records Bill Frisell / Thomas Morgan: Epistrophy

2019 -
Bill Frisell - chitara electrica
Thomas Moran - contrabas

Like their acclaimed ECM release Small Town of 2017 – which The Guardian called “wistful and mesmerizing… tonally ingenious and haunting” – Epistrophy by guitarist Bill Frisell and bassist Thomas Morgan was recorded at New York City’s Village Vanguard. The new album once again captures the rare empathy these two players achieve together in this intimate environment. There are further poetic takes on pieces from the duo’s Americana songbook (“All in Fun,” “Red River Valley,” “Save the Last Dance for Me”), as well as another intense version of a composition by Paul Motian (“Mumbo Jumbo”), an artist whom both the guitarist and bassist knew well. Frisell and Morgan communicate the essence of Billy Strayhorn’s “Lush Life” and the Frank Sinatra hit “In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning,” so much so that the famous words seem to hang in the air even without a singer. At the center of the album is a pair of pieces by Thelonious Monk: the funky, angular “Epistrophy” and the ruminative ballad “Pannonica.” And as with “Goldfinger” on Small Town, Frisell and Morgan offer a glowing duo interpretation of a melody-rich John Barry title tune from a James Bond film – “You Only Live Twice.”

1974

Herbie Hancock Piano, Electric Piano

Frederick Waits Drums, Marimba
Billy Hart Drums
Bill Summers Percussion
Charles Sullivan Trumpet

editie Touchstones - format mini-vinil replica, coperti gatefold, cartonate
This is the first time on CD for a long-unavailable collectors’ item. With The Jewel in the Lotus, Maupin, the great multireedman, produced something visionary and, for some perhaps, joltingly unexpected: a series of mostly rubato aural paintings using piano, electric piano, bass, three drummers, multitracked saxophone, bass clarinet and flute, and trumpet on two tracks. … Soloists include Herbie Hancock and Maupin, but this is a composer’s work; ad libs and interplay notwithstanding, the ensemble is paramount.

CD ECM Records Steve Swallow: Home

1979

Steve Swallow - bas
Sheila Jordan - voce
Steve Kuhn - pian
David Liebman - saxofoane
Lyle Mays - sintetizator
Bob Moses - tobe

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

A recording of great charm, Home features bassist Steve Swallow’s settings of the poetry of Robert Creeley for an inspired band of friends, each of whom is also a strikingly original presence. Creeley was very supportive of the project and loved particularly Sheila Jordan’s singing. Swallow, whose feeling for verse is as profound as his understanding of jazz, gets right inside the meaning of the texts and illuminates them with his melodies. Recorded 1979.

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.

CD ECM Records Andras Schiff / Peter Serkin - Mozart / Reger / Busoni: Music for Two Pianos

1999

Andras Schiff - pian
Peter Serkin - pian

ECM débuts for two of the greatest pianists of our time, artists of personal vision very seldom heard - as they are here - as piano duo. Recorded after an American tour in 1997, Schiff and Serkin deliver a programme that is in itself a kind of 'art of fugue', beginning and ending with Mozart and embracing fugal compositions by Reger and Busoni. Serkin's rigorous asceticism and Schiff's elegant poetic touch are brought to bear on these works, as the players investigate the essential qualities of the music. A fascinating issue.

CD ECM Records Third Reel ( Masson Pianca Maniscalco )

2012

Nicolas Masson - saxofon tenor, clarinet
Roberto Pianca - chitara
Emanuele Maniscalco - tobe

There’s fire and ice in the improvised music of Third Reel, making their ECM debut with this new disc. The trio of reeds, guitar and drums create soundscapes ranging from the ethereal to the explosive, but with an overall sense of musical unity. [...] It is Pianca’s guitar which sets the tone for each piece – on some tracks he is in full, rip-snorting Hendrix mode and on others he plays more melodically with a straightforward sound. Strong musical imaginations are at work here, and it’s a very promising debut.

CD ECM Records Andras Schiff - Robert Schumann: Geistervariationen

2011

Andras Schiff - Piano

András Schiff is not one to follow the crowd, so even in this much-recorded repertoire you know you can expect something different. These Schumann interpretations are head and shoulders above any other recent releases of the composer’s piano works. There is astonishing clarity of line and texture, intellectual focus in every interpretive decision, and a palpable sense of immediacy all too rare in studio recordings of piano music.

CD ECM Records Andras Schiff, Juliane Banse: Songs of Debussy and Mozart

2003

Juliane Banse Soprano
András Schiff Piano

Debussy and Mozart would seem to make the unlikeliest of bedfellows, especially in the field of song. .. Yet it is typical of ECM’s sense of adventure that the result should be so convincing, in a winning recital by a singer known for her Romantic repertoire and a pianist renowned for his Mozart. Banse has the measure of the furtive, often ecstatic characterisation required for the selection of Debussy’s songs included here, chiefly settings of Paul Verlaine. … Two French songs by Mozart provide at least a linguistic link between the two composers, but the bulk are in German, including the familiar Goethe setting, “Das Veilchen”. Banse has just the right sense of tonal purity to make this change of tack work, while Schiff has the full measure of both composers.

CD ECM Records Third Reel ( Masson Pianca Maniscalco ) - Many More Days

2015

Nicolas Masson - saxofon tenor si sopran, clarinet
Roberto Pianca - chitara
Emanuele Maniscalco - tobe, pian

The second ECM album from Swiss/Italian trio Third Reel takes its open-plan music to the next level. Emanuele Maniscalco, Nicolas Masson and Roberto Pianca all bring music into Third Reel, and each of them has his own distinct compositional signature, but from the outset their pieces are “always conceived as material for multiple, unpredictable developments.” Compositional guidelines are like gateways into fields to explore. Masson’s elegant clarinet and lean-toned tenor are emphasized, Maniscalco floats between drums and piano, quietly lyrical on both instruments, and Pianca is most often a kind of orchestrator-in-action, subtly enfolding the interaction with swelling sustained chords. Like the eponymous 2013 debut album, Many More Days was recorded at RSI in Lugano.
